It is very difficult to confirm the diagnosis of IB, due to many serotypes and expensive serological testing methods.Other primary causes like Respiratory viruses ( other than IB), Mycoplasmosis, excess CO2 & Ammonia gases should not be neglected to control E.Coli.Respiratory system is one of the most important system of bird, ...

It is a nice knowledgeable presentation on control of heat stress.Ref. to Dr. Danny Hooge's article on the same subject, use of 0.4 to 0.5% Sodium Bicarbonate.(NaHCo3) in feed can be helpful to control the Respiratory Alkalosis and reduce the losses during high heat time.I have applied this recommendation in many farms of broilers, particularly naturally ventilated houses and got good results.Kind ...
