Early in April, there were multiple cases of Avian Flu found in Guthrie County and now the county health services says they have it under control. 

Health Services Director Jotham Arber says over the spring there was an outbreak of the flu and many chickens had to be killed as a result. Arber says cases of the Avian Flu have dropped off in the county and all around the state. 

“Definitely one thing that’s going to be beneficial is the summer for avian flu. We know that the flu is very susceptible to heat and to the sun.”

Aber explains he is not a market analyst but expects the egg production in the county to go back to normal.
