Abstract

One hundred sixty meat-turkey premises in California were monitored for outbreaks of fowl cholera from August 1985 through July 1986. Nearly 27 million turkeys in 720 flocks were at risk during the year. Fifty-three flocks of approximately 3 million turkeys on 34 different premises experienced confirmed fowl cholera outbreaks. The epidemic curve for the year indicated that the majority of outbreaks occurred in the late summer and fall, particularly in October. The incidence of outbreaks during this time was not significantly associated with seasonal variation in the size of the turkey population. The mean flock age at outbreak was 10.8 weeks, with a range of 5-18 weeks.
