In response to the current Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) outbreak, the state of Maryland is limiting the movement of poultry litter. The Maryland Department of Agriculture issued a poultry litter transport ban for part of the state, effective from March 9 to early August.
The order covers Cecil and Kent counties and parts of Queen Anne’s and Caroline counties. These producers cannot send their poultry litter to other farms or receive litter from other operations, even those outside of the restricted area.
