Ten of those are in Kandiyohi County in the central part of the state.
A spokeswoman for the Minnesota Turkey Growers Association says the state’s commercial operators are better prepared to deal with the current outbreak than they were with the one in 2015 that devastated flocks, wiping out about 9-million birds.
