Friends learn to keep poultry as simple as possible, use common sense, stay close to nature, let birds perform using feeds, medicine and vaccines that were used during the 1980's, i can assure you, good profits will be there.
Using latest technology, sanitizer, medicine, amino acids, vaccines n now bacteriophages, have certainly helped the manufacturing n distribution companies, not the farmers an ...

Bacteriophage technology is not new, nothing great about it, i know Dr L R Sood of BE (Hyderabad) and Dr Basu of Kasauli, used to work on effects of phage on Salmonella and Ecoli during the late 1970 and early 1980's, in the lab it gives results, results in the poultry industry are questionable.

People are thinking air filtration will keep bacteria n virus level low, and improve the health of the birds.
Bacteria n virus enter through water, feed, insects, rodents, air, workers, visiting supervisor s, managers n veterinarians, chicks suppliers, vaccines used etc. Air filterstion is no solution for reducing the bacteria n virus population in the poultry house.

In my opinion, the problem is not with the producers n suppliers, problem is with the regulators, corrupt drug dept personal, govt agencies n research institutions, any product intended to be introduced in the market, needs to b analysed, studied, only if comparitve results obtained, be allowed to be introduced, as it affects the birds/ animal health n well being first n also enters the human food ...

I studied veterinary Anatomy 40years ago. If I remember correctly, the intestinal villai are the folds of mucouls membrane which enhances the surface area. I wonder if they have receptors like B cells and T cells have which attract antigens on the surface.
I do not think Intestine villas have specific recpetors to which lactobacillus cells get attached and block the attachment ...

Every one is talking about viral and bacterial diseases, or what they are seeing or are being told to look for, in reality, more that 90% of the problem begins with mycotoxins in feed, leading to immunosuppression, metabolic disturbance, co-morbidities, poor performance n increased mortality.
If you want to control the problem, please solve the mycotoxins related problem first, then the viral n ba ...

How much time is required for the vaccine strains to replace the field strains of coccidia in the birds, will the composition of feed (added enzyme and probiotics) have its effect on the replacement process.

For Indian Poultry Industry, it is more important to ensure the immune system in the birds is kept fit n fine, 365 days of the year, check mycotoxins n other immunosuppressors, then treat the flocks, wait for 4 to 6 weeks, test for salmonella, then think of the vaccine.
Ignoring immune system working n fitness, not protecting from immunosuppressors, and using vaccine during infection will b suic ...

Kotaiah Sir, the oocycts of coccidia do sporolate, when the conditions are right, but they don’t really form spores like the probiotic organism do, the formation of spore n the process of sporulation are two different events
