One of the goals of poultry professionals is to minimize production costs by keeping flocks healthy. Dr. Phil Stayer from Sanderson Farms will explain in this webinar why setting up a flock health monitoring program is important to efficient production. A health monitoring program can detect problems with the flock before clinical signs are observed and help identify the source of problems once they do occur. With the help of a routine health monitoring program comparisons can be made between different regions, seasons, vaccination programs, flocks and houses. Dr. Stayer will explain how to get the most out of your monitoring program by using both routine post mortem necropsy and ELISA testing. He will provide detailed information as to what serology reports are optimal in effectively managing a monitoring program.
