Poultry Information - Pollorum-Typhoid Testing  2022
Miami County Fair Poultry Pullorum testing is on July 12 from 4-6pm at the Fairgrounds in Paola.  This is open to 4-H and Open Class Poultry Exhibitors.
Kansas continues to be a Pollorum-Typhoid (P-T) clean slate. This means that all poultry (except waterfowl) involved in exhibitions, such as the county fair, are required to either originate from a hatchery or breeding flock that is classified as a U.S. P-T Clean through the National Poultry Improvement Plan (NPIP). Or test negative on the P-T test within 90 days prior to the opening date of the exhibition.
