Max Armstrong reports on the latest outbreak of Salmonella and its interesting cause

Max Armstrong offers a look at a recent outbreak of Salmonella sickened from chickens raised in backyard flocks. The challenge is that contact with poultry from multiple hatcheries may be the source of the problem. People touch the animals, or they touch the areas where the animals live. Max offers insight into the rising phenomenon of the backyard chicken.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
