Environmental Management and Disease Prevention

The old saying “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is very appropriate when it comes to respiratory disease in poultry houses. It is generally accepted that if a grower maintains the proper house temperature and air quality the likelihood of problems with respiratory disease will be lowered. Even if a grower ends up with a respiratory disease challenge, the severity can be lessened through proper environmental management.
