With outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza now seen in commercial and backyard poultry flocks coast to coast, and migratory birds known to be carrying the virus, Dr. Tom Baker of Ontario's Feather Board Command Centre considers how we got to this point and what farmers outside the poultry sector can now do to help curb further spread. Also: many Prairie farmers have either already seeded into parched soils or are waiting on the edge of cold, soaked and/or submerged fields. Bruce Burnett of Glacier MarketsFarm considers what may happen if current weather patterns persist. Hosted by Dave Bedard.
