The quarantine on poultry litter movement in Mississippi continues, however there are new, very specific guidelines for various locations in the poultry production area.

Call the Mississippi Board of Animal Health at 601-359-1170 or 888-646-8731 to determine the guidelines for your situation and the permitting requirements if transport is allowed.

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. Consequently: NO LITTER may be moved between Mississippi and Alabama.

The situation is under constant review.
