Home / Products / Poultry / More protection. More productivity.
Every hen that is protected has the potential to produce more. In commercial layer production, Escherichia coli (E. coli) can be everywhere and the predisposing environmental factors are impossible to eliminate. Each factor can spark colibacillosis and respiratory distress, increase mortality and reduce flock performance. As the industry migrates toward cage-free production in the years ahead, bacterial challenges will likely follow.
Poulvac® E. coli is the only available modified-live E. coli vaccine that is safe for birds.1 Recommended for mass administration to healthy chickens 1 day of age or older, it helps provide broad-spectrum protection against E. coli bacteria,2 and has shown to reduce mortality and potential egg losses.3,4
In a study measuring protection in specific-pathogen-free (SPF) chickens, birds were vaccinated at 1 day after hatch, given a 14-week booster, then challenged at week 20 with E. coli serotype O78 isolate.2
Poulvac E. coli:
According to one of the industry’s leading layer veterinarians, leaving five eggs per bird on the table can cost producers at least $35,000 in profit when market prices are high. Layer vaccination programs are almost always cost-effective in disease challenged areas under these circumstances.5
Poulvac E. coli can help deliver a strong return on investment for egg producers. Saving even just one egg per hen housed reduces mortality and maintains production past peak. The table below demonstrates the economic benefits of a $2,600 investment for two doses of Poulvac E. coli vaccination in a 100,000-hen operation.
