Commercial broilers vaccinated against infectious laryngotracheitis (ILT) virus with a herpesvirus of turkey (HVT) vaccine were better protected than those that received a fowlpox virus (FPV) vaccine, Maricarmen Garcia, PhD, said at the 1st International Avian Respiratory Disease Conference held earlier this year.
Recombinant technology has brought more convenience and safety to poultry health programs, but using two different vaccines made with the turkey herpesvirus could hurt performance. Which disease should you target with a recombinant?
University of Georgia's Mark Jackwo od, PhD, went to Europe to see what leading poultry disease specialists there are doing to achieve better control of infectious bronchitis variants. Now he's successfully applying these concepts to US operations.
