As of Friday, May 6, litter can NOT be hauled in or from the following counties in Mississippi:

Covington

Forest

Jasper

Jones

Lamar

Perry

Wayne

This quarantine is in place due an outbreak of the disease ‘ILT’ in February apparently traced back to an Alabama origin according to the Board of Animal Health.

This video from the MSU ES Farmweek television program discusses the quarantine, and provides a old map of the affected region: http://msucares.com/news/farmweek/flashvideo/2011/2011-04-22expandedift.html.

Permits are required for all movements in other areas of Mississippi. NO LITTER may be moved between Mississippi and Alabama.

ANY MOVEMENT within Mississippi requires a permit from the Board of Animal Health. The basic info required for movement permits are:

  • hauler contact information
  • poultry grower contact information + name of integrator
  • destination contact information

Detailed information on requesting a permit is available from the Board at 601-359-1170 or 888-646-8731.

The situation is under constant review.
