I think that biosecurity has a minor role in preventing Gumboro disease. IBDV is very resistant in the environment and the vaccination is unavoidable.To reduce the incidence of IBD, we must ovoid the vaccine neutralisation by the residual antibodies. we can achieve this goal by vaccination at the optimal age or by using a new generation of vaccines like recombinant ones. it is known that the immun ...
