DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - State officials say there are two probable cases of bird flu in Adair and Webster counties in Iowa.

The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship says initial testing at two commercial laying operations were positive for bird flu. The operations have a combined total of about 1.1 million birds.

The agency said Monday if the disease is confirmed, all birds on the properties will be euthanized. It would also mean there are now 66 cases of the disease in Iowa.
