Defra commissioned survey on the costs of Avian Influenza
Defra have commissioned a survey which aims to identify the financial impacts incurred by UK bird holders as a result of the 2021/22 avian influenza outbreak (October 2021 – September 2022).
The survey is part of a wider study to assess the economic impact of the outbreak. The costs investigated in this survey are associated with the mandatory housing order, additional biosecurity measures, forgone income from dead and culled birds, restricted business activity, and higher operational costs. The survey expects to gather responses from a diverse sample of bird keepers across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. This work is being delivered by Fera Science Ltd. and has been funded by the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs.
