Bird flu confirmed at 4 more Minnesota turkey farms

MINNEAPOLIS - State and federal authorities have confirmed outbreaks of bird flu at four more turkey farms in Minnesota, raising the number of farms affected in the state to 13.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says the new cases are in Cottonwood, Lyon, Watonwan and Stearns counties.

The farms housed a combined 189,000 turkeys. Those birds not killed by the virus will be euthanized to prevent the disease from spreading.
