Economic impact of a documented case of reovirus infection in broiler breeders

Economic impact of a documented case of reovirus infection in broiler breeders

Avian Diseases 36(3): 788-791

The following parameters were used to calculate the economic impact to a commercial broiler company of a pathogenic reovirus infection in broiler breeders during egg production: hatchability, selling of eggs, vaccination, mortality, medication, slowing of line speed at processing, and down-grading and trimming at processing. The cost due to reovirus infection in one flock of broiler breeders was approximately $48,000.
