Outbreaks are not a new concept for farmers as non-notifiable diseases like salmonella, E.coli, histomoniasis and some strains of avian influenza are repeatedly found present on farms across the UK year-round. These outbreaks cause widespread disruption to farms, business and the economy.

Starting with the first case in Killycloghan on the 10 January 2020, right through to the Autumn of 2021, this timeline highlights the fact that seasonal infections are not the only diseases that farmers have to be vigilant against.
