The 2007 Bernard Matthews H5N1 outbreak was an occurrence of avian influenza in England caused by the H5N1 subtype of Influenza virus A that began on 30 January 2007. The infection affected poultry at one of Bernard Matthews ' farms in Holton in Suffolk . It was the third instance of H5N1-subtype detected in the United Kingdom and a range of precautions were instituted to prevent spread of the disease including a large cull of turkeys , the imposition of segregation zones, and a disinfection programme for the plant.

The cause of the outbreak was not determined. However, it was considered significant that Bernard Matthews regularly transports turkeys and turkey products between the UK and its plant in Hungary , and that the H5N1 strains previously found in Hungary, and those found at Suffolk, were effectively genetically identical.

H5N1 is a subtype of the Influenza A virus , the viruses responsible for influenza in humans and many other animal species. [1] A bird-adapted strain of H5N1, called HPAI A(H5N1) for "highly pathogenic avian influenza virus of type A of subtype H5N1", is the causative agent of H5N1 flu .

HPAI A(H5N1) is considered an avian disease, although there is some evidence of limited human-to-human transmission of the virus. [2] A risk factor for contracting the virus is handling of infected poultry, but transmission of the virus from infected birds to humans is inefficient. [3] Poultry farming practices have changed due to H5N1. [4] The cost of poultry farming has increased, while the cost to consumers has gone down, due to fears from H5N1 driving demand below supply. [5]

The outbreak was the third instance of H5N1 detected in the United Kingdom. The first outbreak occurred in October 2005 among exotic birds imported from Taiwan and South America at a privately owned quarantine facility in Essex, England . [6] [7] The second instance involved a dead whooper swan found to have the virus in Cellardyke , Scotland in April 2006. [8] [9] A corresponding incidence on a farm in south-eastern Hungary was confirmed by the European Commission on 25 January 2007. [10]

Initial signs of the outbreak occurred on Tuesday, 30 January when 55 turkey poults died and 16 had to be killed because they were sick. At least 185 more died the following day. [11]

Aug. 31 marked an evening of celebration for Aviagen® UK and its Ross® customers. During the 17th annual UK Flock Awards, the Aviagen team honored 28 winners who reached exceptional performance levels with their Ross broiler breeding stock.

The Flock Awards are presented to the committed professionals who give excellent care to the birds at each stage: the Breeder Manager, the Hatchery Manager and the Rearing Farm Manager.

“These outstanding caretakers are the backbone of the U.K. poultry industry, and through the Flock Awards we commend their hard work and talent,” said Alan Thomson, Aviagen’s regional technical and commercial manager. “The efforts of these people who work behind the scenes are often unseen, but their contributions are invaluable.”

Thomson added that Aviagen has seen significant improvement in Ross 308 breeder performance, particularly in the past year. “However, it takes excellence in flock management to provide the best environment for the birds to perform in. With outstanding stockmanship, combined with steadfast diligence and dedication, the Flock Award winners were able to tap into the rich genetic potential of Ross birds.”

The parents within the nine winning flocks represent the top 3 percent of Ross flocks placed in the U.K. The performance scores of this year’s winners were exceptionally high, exceeding Aviagen performance standards.

Their strong results are especially impressive considering the major influential obstacles of the past year, namely the economic uncertainty created by Brexit, Avian Influenza outbreaks and the ever-changing political landscape, which have all provided a challenging backdrop for the entire poultry industry.

To mark the occasion, the Lecturer is presented with a certificate and an engraved commemorative award. All costs of attending the Congress at which the Lecture is given are met by the Houghton Trust.

The next Houghton Trust Lecture will be given at the WVPA Congress to be held in Edinburgh in September 2017. Nominations can be made in two ways:

Dr Francois-Xavier Le Gros
Merial, Lyon Gerland Laboratory

The Officers of the WVPA, after due consultation, will make a short-list of SIX candidates, which will then be forwarded to the Grants Subcommittee of the Houghton Trust, who will choose the Avian Pathology Lecturer.

Marek's vaccine CVI988 which was developed as part of the research of Dr. Rispens is successfully used to prevent Marek's Disease in poultry all over the world. The vaccine had been made available to the vaccine industry free of charge only because of the attitude of Dr. Rispens towards commercialisation of research subsidised by the government.

The Award will be given biennially to the first author of the best paper published in the WVPA journal Avian Pathology during the two calendar years preceding the year of the Award presentation at the WVPA Congress. The recipient of the Award is elected by the Dr. Bart Rispens Research Award Committee, which includes representatives of the Board of the WVPA, a representative of Avian Pathology, a representative of the corporate sponsor MSD Animal Health and four other appointed scientists.
