Agriculture remains Georgia’s number one industry and Avian Influenza is a direct threat to its most valuable sector. The poultry-egg industry contributes over $28 billion annually to Georgia’s economy and supports nearly 109,000 jobs.
We have a great poultry leadership team. Georgia is ready should we have to face this challenge. Now is the time for every farmer, every person associated with the poultry industry, to commit to biosecurity. We must all realize that preparation is no substitute for prevention.
