Migrating waterfowl could be carrying avian influenza as they pass over farms both in the fall and spring time. Properly implemented biosecurity is the producers' first-line of defense against infectious agents. Your farm biosecurity protocols should be well thought-out, stringently implemented and continuously followed.
However that might not be enough to prevent the disease from entering your farm, at Meester Insurance we offer Poultry Disease Coverage to protect you in the event an outbreak occurs.
Coverage is offered in the event of these specific diseases:
• Avian Influenza (AI, including H5 and H7)
• ILT (Avian Infectious Laryngotracheitis)
• Salmonella Enteritidis (SE)
Physical loss, business interruption and clean-up costs are standard, with the ability to purchase additional clean-up cost coverage.
