BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota poultry farmers are being urged to take precautions against bird flu.

Avian influenza has been confirmed in three Southern states. North Dakota State Veterinarian Susan Keller says poultry producers in the state should keep their birds away from wetland areas where migrating wild birds might land.

North Dakota had two cases of bird flu in 2015, in Dickey and LaMoure counties.
