DURING 1962 day old vaccination was widely adopted as a preventative measure against fowl pox.
From June, 1961, until mid-June, 1962, this procedure proved to be highly successful, but from this date onwards a proportion of treated flocks became affected by breakdowns accompanied by mortality and retarded growth.
In some cases the losses were disturbingly high.
