Highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) was confirmed in a broiler breeder site in Mpumalanga.  Although an initial ban on the sale of live cull birds was put in place by DAFF, this ban has been conditionally lifted and the Director Animal Health has authorised the Poultry Disease Management Agency (PDMA) to register and keep records of all parties selling and buying live chickens. With regard to the registration process for the selling of live chickens, please download the relevant procedural manual and forms here.
