Schering-Plough seminars at IPE

US - Most mainstream poultry companies now use a vaccine for at least part of their coccidiosis-management program in broilers.

In the US, for example, seven of the Top 10 broiler companies have taken this route. Similar trends are being seen in other major poultry markets of Latin America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

Initially, most of these companies switched to coccidiosis vaccination to “break up the cycle” of traditional in-feed anticoccidials, many of which were losing effectiveness after continuous use.

Others saw vaccination as a good way to reduce residue risks in the feed mill and to meet growing consumer and regulatory demand to use fewer drugs in animal feeds.

Now, poultry companies are experiencing one more benefit from coccidiosis vaccination:

They’ve discovered that feed programs can be more profitable if they don’t have to work around prescribed treatment regimens and withdrawal times associated with traditional in-feed anticoccidials. In other words, broiler feed programs can be adjusted to meet the needs of the birds, not the requirements of the drug.

To help the worldwide poultry industry learn more about this important benefit, Schering-Plough Animal Health will be hosting two 1-hour seminars at the International Poultry Expo — one in Spanish, the other in English. Breakfast or lunch will also be provided.
