Livestock Industry Foundation for Africa (LIFA) on 8th September, 2020 presented a zoom lecture on Epidemiology, Chemotherapy and Dietary Management of Fowl Cholera in Humid Tropical Climate; case study from Nigeria by Dr Stephen Adejoro (President of LIFA)
The scope of his discussion was outlined as follows: Aetiology, Route of infection, Symptoms, Incubation, Predisposing factors, Clinical signs, Post mortem, Laboratory diagnosis and case study from Nigeria.
In his presentation, he referred to Fowl Cholera as a chronic disease of poultry which could linger on throughout the life cycle of a flock when endemic. He further emphasizes that the disease occurs in a cycle of 12 weeks starting from age 26 to 28 weeks.
Dr Adejoro pointed out in his case study that there is a need for mutual responsibilities between the Nutritionist and the Veterinarian in the management of some metabolic diseases of poultry. You can watch his presentation via this link: https://youtu.be/IRnFy518OzU
