The purpose of the Handbook of Poultry Diseases is to acquaint veterinarians and poultry health professionals with current information on the diagnosis and prevention of poultry disease in commercial broiler and egg production flocks in emerging and established industries. Productivity and profitability are enhanced by application of sound principles of bio security, vaccination, and management. Improving efficiency increases the availability of eggs and poultry meat to supply the protein needs of populations in countries with expanding demand.
During the past two decades, primary breeders of broiler, egg and laying strains have eliminated vertically-transmitted diseases from their elite and great-grandparent generations. Unfortunately, infection of grandparent and parent flocks occurs in many developing countries resulting in dissemination of diseases including mycoplasmosis, salmonellosis and reoviral infection.
Improved bio security and an awareness of the need for appropriate vaccination programs, reduces the potential losses caused by both catastrophic and erosive infections on commercial-scale farms, village cooperatives and in integrated operations.
