Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza in Livestock

 

In an effort to protect the dairy herd in Nebraska, NDA is issuing an importation order effective immediately. The importation order will require all breeding female dairy cattle entering the state of Nebraska to obtain a permit issued by NDA prior to entry. The new importation order will be in place for 30 days (until April 30, 2024) and will be re-evaluated at that time.

NDA continues to monitor the detection of HPAI virus in dairy cattle. HPAI has been detected in lactating dairy cattle in Texas, New Mexico, Kansas, Michigan, and Idaho. At this time, there have been no reported detections of HPAI in Nebraska dairy cattle or other livestock.

To obtain a permit, producers will need to contact NDA at 402-471-2351.
