Hatchery Farms Vaccination Policy

At Hatchery Farms, we prioritize the health and well-being of our poultry. To ensure the highest standards of biosecurity and disease prevention, we have implemented a comprehensive vaccination policy, with special emphasis on Marek’s disease vaccination.

Marek’s disease is a highly contagious and deadly viral infection that affects chickens, causing tumors, paralysis, and ultimately death.To protect our flocks from this devastating disease, we follow strict vaccination protocols. All chicks and breeding stock at Hatchery Farms receive the necessary vaccines against Marek’s disease as recommended by poultry health experts.

Our Marek’s vaccination program consists of administering the vaccine to day-old chicks, as this is proven to be the most effective method. The vaccine contains a weakened strain of Marek’s disease virus, which helps the chickens develop immunity without causing the disease itself.

In addition to Marek’s disease vaccination, we also ensure that our poultry receives other necessary vaccinations to prevent or mitigate other common diseases. These may include vaccines for Newcastle disease, avian influenza, infectious bronchitis, and coccidiosis, among others.

We work closely with certified veterinarians who guide us on the appropriate vaccine selection, dosage, storage, and administration methods. Our staff members are trained on proper vaccination techniques to ensure accuracy and minimize any potential risks.

Furthermore, we strictly follow biosecurity measures to minimize the risk of introduction and spread of diseases in our facilities. This includes regular disinfection of premises, controlled visitor access, and proper sanitation practices.

We understand the importance of transparency and accountability in our vaccination protocol. Therefore, we maintain meticulous records of all vaccinations administered, including the type of vaccine, batch numbers, and dates. These records are regularly reviewed and audited to ensure compliance with industry standards and regulations.

It is essential to note that vaccination is just one aspect of a comprehensive disease prevention program. We also emphasize the importance of maintaining optimal nutrition, proper housing conditions, and regular monitoring of bird health. By combining vaccination with these best practices, we strive to provide our customers with healthy and robust poultry.

We believe that an effective vaccination policy, with specific emphasis on tackling Marek’s disease, is crucial in safeguarding the health and productivity of our flocks at Hatchery Farms. Our commitment to vaccination and disease prevention ensures that we deliver quality poultry products to our customers while maintaining the highest standards of animal welfare.
