When Vaccinal Laryngotracheitis (VLT) breaks into broiler flocks, many issues come into play as poultry companies, growers, and state agencies attempt to suppress the spread of the outbreak.  Modification of traffic patterns, flock placement schedules, litter management and vaccination programs all help to contain the disease. Most importantly, working together in a concerted effort towards the same goal is paramount to success.
