What the Poultry Exhibition Suspension Means for 4-H Members Back »

As a precautionary measure to control potential disease transmission of H5N2 highly-pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI), the South Dakota Animal Industry Board (SDAIB) issued a Board Order suspending all South Dakota bird exhibitions effective May 21, 2015 until further notice.

In accordance with SDAIB, all 4-H poultry shows are suspended until further notice. If the suspension is lifted, the State 4-H office will work with SDAIB to develop a timely plan. Members are still encouraged to complete the ownership and identification requirements for poultry projects.
