Avian flu Poultry restrictions to end on Monday
The restrictions had prompted worries from NFU Cymru that they would damage the free-range egg and meat status of poultry flocks. The rules were eased at the end of February to allow poultry to be kept outdoors.
Announcing the end of the prevention measures, Griffiths said the most recent assessments found a low-to-medium risk of wild waterfowl being infected, and low but heightened for poultry farms, depending on the biosecurity measures in place at each farm. "This level is consistent with November 2016, when disease was present across Europe in sporadic outbreaks and occasional wild bird findings were being reported," she said.
