I have dealt with HPAI issues for many years, both in the field and laboratory settings. It is a devastating disease, but luckily has not entrenched itself in Kenya, despite the country being in the path of the southern migratory route. Constant collaboration in surveillance is crucial for a better understanding of its epidemiology and diagnosis.

Yes, mycotoxins are common in poultry. While low levels lead to poor growth rates, high levels cause deaths. In Kenyan situation, grain harvest time coincides with short rains period, which lead to proliferation of mycotoxins in poorly stored products. Most farmers will sundry their products, which more often than not get wet due to unexpected showers.Your book is most welcome.
