E.coli, also known as colibacillosis, is one of the most economically significant and common diseases in poultry all over the world. Poultry Health Today says that new studies make it clear how vaccination helps birds all over the world fight against E. coli.
Studies presented at the 2017 World Veterinary Poultry Association meeting held in Edinburgh showed the impact of the modified-live E. coli vaccine on antibiotic use in broilers. The studies were conducted by Zoetis in both France and Germany.
The researchers in France discovered that E. coli vaccination reduced the total number of antibiotic treatment by 44%. There was also a 40% reduction in antibiotic treatments for colibacillosis. The Germany team conducted the study on 3.3 million broilers in three different farms. They also saw the link between vaccination and the reduction of antibiotic use.
