  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   CE2021-0005

FAS Colombo\New Delhi and APHIS New Delhi engaged with the Sri Lanka Department of Animal Production and Health, clarifying the current situation of Low Pathogenic Avian Influenza (LPAI) following a reported outbreak in a backyard layer flock in Webster County, Missouri on November 7, 2020. Post's timely intervention and negotiations averted the potential rejection and loss of a roughly 7,500 live bird shipment from the U.S. valued at about $156,000. Post similarly intervened in January 2021 in the case of a 46,000 live bird stock shipment.
