An Iowa farm with about 5.3M chickens in Osceola County is the latest, and largest, chicken flock to be affected by an ongoing outbreak of avian influenza, or bird flu, reported The Wall Street Journal. The addition of this large flock brings the total number of chickens and turkeys affected by avian influenza to nearly 8M, the report noted. Last night, Hormel Foods (HRL) provided additional information regarding the anticipated impact of recent avian influenza outbreaks on its Jennie-O Turkey Store segment, stating that lower turkey supply is expected to impact plant operations and cause reduced sales volumes as the year progresses. Other publicly traded companies in the meat production space include Pilgrim's Pride (PPC), Sanderson Farms (SAFM) and Tyson Foods (TSN). Reference Link
