NEXT SCF Committee Meeting Decemember 19th Decemeber, 2016 SHELLIES PC.
I have called a SPECIAL SCF COMMITTEE MEETING TONIGHT 7 PM, at Shellies PC regarding the on-going PIGEON HEALTH ISSUES confronting most Australian States concerning a VIRILENT VIRUS, now occurring in NSW.
Yet to be determined by leading Avian Vets, this viral infection is one that causes increased mortality in RACING PIGEON LOFTS, is fast moving and is spread with minimal contact.
Caution should be practised with regards LOFT BIO SECURITY, VOLUNTARY LOCK DOWN and NO TRANSFER OF BIRDS or EVENTS THAT INCLUDE NUMBERS OF PIGEONS AND MEMBERS IN THE SAME AREAS, eg Breeders Plates, Auctions, Races, etc. These are Voluntary measures as of today, 19th Dec, 2016 and could change without notice.
The initial viral concerns were in Western Australia however this virus has been felt in one form or another in ALL STATES apart from Tas or NT or ACT.
ALL SCF SECRETARIES and the SCF Committee have had ample information for the SCF Membership to keep a current handle on any information that comes to hand. This information sharing is active and on-going and up-dated often.
It is vitality important that the SCF Secretaries are in contact with their CLUB MEMBERS and with detailed information that is current due to the nature of this VIRUS now in NSW. One SCF Member called me yesterday requesting information, his Club had not contacted him.
More details as they come to hand.
AT THIS TIME THERE ARE NO NSW DPI WARNINGS IN PLACE.
