BELAGAVI: The Goa government’s ban on poultry products from Karnataka has hit the poultry industry hard. Karnataka Poultry Farms and Breeders Association (KPFBA) has been running from pillar to post to revoke the ban which they feel is illogical.
Goa has banned poultry products of Karnataka in the backdrop of the outbreak of bird flu in Humnabad taluk of Bidar district in the second week of May. With swift measures like culling of the affected birds in the area and vaccination drives, the state government had declared Bidar as bird-flu free district. Three months after the incident, Goa decides to ban poultry products from Karnataka.
