Abstract

Economic decision analysis was applied to a variety of programs for controlling Mycoplasma meleagridis (MM) using a hypothetical commercial turkey multiplier breeder as an example. The analysis demonstrated the economic significance of a particular program for controlling MM and reevaluated current egg-dipping practices. If forced to continue egg-dipping, the hypothetical breeder can expect to gain $1.58 per hen if he follows a MM-control program that includes monitoring and incentive payments. If he can discontinue dipping, he can expect a gain of $2.06 per hen.
