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

Abstract

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 downgrading and trimming at processing. The cost due to reovirus infection in one flock of broiler breeders was approximately $48,000.
