The control of coccidiosis in poultry

Coccidiosis is still considered one of the main diseases affecting the performance of poultry reared under intensive production systems. The estimated cost per bird produced is €0.05, resulting in a worldwide cost of €2.3 billion. Still, with currently available diagnostic methods such as oocyst counts and lesion scoring, an interpretation of the impact of (subclinical) coccidiosis is not easy. Another problem that is difficult to address with currently available tools is the interpretation of the efficacy of an anticoccidial programme.
A link between subclinical coccidiosis and bacterial enteritis complicates choosing the right tools and strategy for poultry producers. Sound shuttle and rotation programmes can be part of the answer in order to control not only clinical, but also subclinical, coccidiosis.
