PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota’s Animal Industry Board has rescinded an order that suspended poultry shows statewide.

The order was implemented in May due to an outbreak of bird flu, and affected such exhibitions as the State Fair. It was rescinded Thursday.

The Animal Industry Board says avian influenza was last detected in the country in mid-June. Since then, nine of the 10 affected farms in South Dakota have restocked with poultry.

Poultry owners are still encouraged to be vigilant for signs of illness in their birds, and to contact their veterinarian if they observe unusual death loss or illness.
