ATTN: 2015 PULLORUM TESTING INFORMATION
MDAR staff will be on Martha’s Vineyard for one day only on Tuesday July 21st, from 8am to 4pm to test poultry. For scheduling purposes, requests for testing should be made no later than Friday, July 15th. We cannot guarantee that requests received after July 15th can be accommodated.
***THERE ARE CHANGES THIS YEAR TO THE TESTING PROCEDURES***
Poultry testing this year will be done at the fairgrounds. Due to limited staffing, we will not be able to visit each locatin to test your flock. If you are showing birds at the fair, you will have to bring your entire flock to the fairgrounds to be tested. The flock owner must be present and be available to handle their birds and assist the inspector.
Please contact Megan Megrath at 617-626-1798 or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule testing.
