Kerala lifts ban on poultry products from TN
Salem: Kerala government has lifted ban on entry of poultry and poultry products from Tamil Nadu following talks with egg exporters, a senior Nammakal-based egg exporter said on Monday.
Senthil Kumar, General Secretary of Namakkal-based Animal Husbandry and Farm Products and Mohan Kumaramangalam, President, told reporters that the neighbouring state`s decision came following the exporters` talks with officials at Thiruvanthapuram.
"Kerala has lifted the ban and vehicles transporting poultry and poultry products will enter that state tomorrow," they said.
They said due to the ban, seven crore eggs were transported to northern states.
Kerala had banned entry of poultry and poultry products from Karnataka and Tamil Nadu as a precautionary measure after avian influenza claimed the lives of 3,600 turkeys in late October at the Central Poultry Farm in Hesarghatta near Bangalore.
