Avian influenza fears lead to massive Iranian poultry cull

Iran has been forced to cull 25 million birds due to avian influenza fears.

Speaking to the Iranian Labour News Agency (ILNA), head of the Tehran Chicken and Egg Association Nasir Nebipur said almost half (40%) of the nation’s poultry had been slaughtered due to bird flu fears.

According to Nebipur, this cull has led to a decrease in egg production and rising egg prices. He added that the situation has resulted in Iran importing up to 50 trucks of eggs from Turkey on a weekly basis.

As also reported on the ILNA, the Tehran Environmental Bureau warned against avian influenza outbreaks caused by wild birds, stating “the entire country is equally at stake”.​
