The US egg industry uses F-strain vaccine extensively and successfully in those complexes that are Mg positive. We have several multi-age complexes that have been able to keep out Mg. Ms is another story. There is only one multi-age commercial complex (it is a large one with 7 million layers) that is both Mg and Ms negative. Luckily in the US, our Ms strains are very, very mild and cause a virtual ...

In the US we are limited to using amprolium in the water at 0.025% for three days then 0.0125% for another 3 days. Adding an antibiotic to combat secondary Clostridial infection (necrotic enteritis) is important. We add 25 grams of bacitracin per ton for 2 weeks.

Sachin Patil The F-vax in the United States has changed over the years and now is very non-reactive compared to the past. in 2000, 1/4 of a dose of F-vax by water or spray would result in respiratory signs and 100% seroconversion. In 2010, a full dose of F-vax by spray produced no respiratory reaction and 30 to 40% positive seroconversion. Our producers now have gone to the eyedrop method of appli ...

Here is my assessment of the use of live Ts-11 vaccine in commercial layers: - The vaccine must be applied by eyedrop usually at 8 to 14 weeks of age. - It is delivered frozen so the cold chain must be maintained during shipment and storage at the destination before reconstitution for application. - The vaccine colonizes the upper trachea (in the cooler areas of the trachea) so the amount of resp ...

A recent science article in the popular media reports that Marek’s vaccines are not “perfect.” Rather, they allow the infection to occur but prevent the virus from forming tumors. The PBS NewsHour story – “This chicken vaccine makes its virus more dangerous” – summarizes a peer-review study by bio-medical researchers in the USA and UK. This research suppo ...

Diamond V XPC can work very well in antibiotic free broiler production in combination with probiotics and cocci vaccines. XPC can aid in preventing coccidiosis and necrotic enteritis by itself but with the addition of a good probiotic, the results are even better. Be aware that our new recommended rate for broilers since August 2014 is 1.25 kg/MT from day old to market.
