MADISON, Wis. (AP) - State agriculture officials have lifted a quarantine zone around a Juneau County farm that had poultry infected with bird flu.

The approximate 6-mile quarantine zone around the farm was lifted after no new cases of bird flu were found in the county since the original detection in April affecting a flock of backyard birds. That flock was destroyed.

The Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection says the movement of poultry is still banned in Juneau, Barron, Chippewa and Jefferson counties until the end of the month.

State veterinarian Dr. Paul McGraw says there are no current plans to cancel bird exhibitions at any local, county or state fairs.
