A southwestern Missouri turkey farm where bird flu was found remains quarantined after 39,000 of its birds were destroyed last week as a precaution, agricultural officials said Wednesday.The H5N1 strain of the virus, detected during a routine inspection last week, is weaker than the H5N2 strain that cost turkey and egg producers in Missouri and 14 other states about 48 million birds last year. It's also a different than the H7N8 strain found in January in Indiana, where more than 400,000 birds at about 10 poultry farms were exterminated.
