(BEDFORD) - Due to the avian flu strain sweeping the country this spring, the Board of Animal Health required that all poultry animals not be physically present at the fairs this summer, in order to prevent the disease from spreading to other animals.

The Poultry Club got creative and held a series of events to gauge members' knowledge and skills, while having a little fun too.
