Platinum Brooding and Coccidiosis prevention

Dr. Snyder provides an overview of Coccidiosis with a focus on control of coccidiosis inside and outside the bird. Following are some of the key areas discussed in the video:

  • Coccidiosis is an ‘artificial disease
  • Multiple species make it a disease complex
  • Control is highly dependent on controlling oocyst numbers at appropriate times
  • Coccidiosis remains a relevant disease in broiler operations
  • Vaccinated flocks have more consistent parasite control than medicated flocks but bacterial infections reduce performance
  • Drug sensitivity can be restored by using the vaccine
