We are aware of cases on H5N1, Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) in some domestic poultry flocks in Pennsylvania. We are currently monitoring the risk of HPAI as it relates to the North American Manure Expo (NAME).
We are doing our part to ensure that you and your operations stay safe. We are taking the following measures at the Expo:
- Supplying disposable biosecurity booties and disinfection spray on-site;
- Not entering any poultry facilities or visiting any previously populated poultry facilities; and
- Not using any poultry manure or compost on-site.
- Although the land where NAME will be held is owned by Lesher’s Poultry, their animal operations are several miles from the host site; and
- No poultry manure has been applied to the field site for more than one year.

Industry Sessions include:
What are the benefits of adding air?
Manure aeration is a highly effective but sometimes overlooked system. Thousands of aeration systems worldwide benefit farmers and the environment alike by increasing nutrients, lowering emissions and making things safer for farmers and their animals. This session from Dairy Power will detail how the Dairy Power Smart Manure Aeration System, which has no need for tractor agitation, provides consistency from first to last load, creates usable manure straight from the tank and creates an ideal state for injection and dribble bar. Attendees will learn how to use the system and how to make the most of it.
