Species Notes for this Location:
On October 24, 2003 the Chief Veterinary Officer for Sweden reported an outbreak of Newcastle disease in a hobby flock of 40 pigeons, 30 turkeys, 10 laying hens and 1 cock. Of these 81 birds, there were 25 cases and 25 deaths with the remainder destroyed to control disease. The affected flock was located in Dalarnas County, Sweden. The last reported outbreak of Newcastle disease in Sweden was 2001.
Management Notes for this Location:
Control measures in Sweden include stamping out and transport restrictions enforced in the area for live poultry, day-old chicks, hatching eggs, fresh poultry meat, table eggs, manure and litter. The US recognizes Sweden as free of NDV, and since the outbreak is limited to a single hobby farm, there are no current plans to change Sweden’s status as NDV free. The USDA is monitoring this outbreak, and if it should expand, other actions may be taken. The US imported no live birds or poultry, or products of concern, from Sweden during January-August 2003. Sweden does not export any poultry meat to the US because Sweden is not approved by the US Food Safety Inspection Service to ship poultry meat to the US.
