About NCPA

The North Central Poultry Association's mission is to actively raise confidence in the poultry community through leadership, support, advocacy and education.


At NCPA we are committed to frequent and transparent communication regarding the ongoing HPAI situation in the U.S.

We will send out immediate disease alerts should a new state become AI-affected. We will also send out weekly summaries of cases in already affected states.
