Topic: Infectious Laryngotracheitis (ILT) in Commercial Poultry

Presenter: Dr. Gigi Lin

Infectious Laryngotracheitis (ILT) in commercial poultry has been endemic in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia for many years. With the success in the increased awareness on biosecurity, the implementation of effective vaccination programs, enhanced management practices and communication among the industry, the incidence of ILT in the Fraser Valley has been reduced significantly in recent years.  However, ILT has not eradicated in the Fraser Valley.  Sporadic cases have been reported over the last couple years in various poultry commodity groups including broiler breeder/broiler chickens, layers, specialty chickens and game birds.  This presentation will focus on the epidemiology, control/management, and prevention of ILT in the Fraser Valley, and highlight the possible reasons for the significant reduction of ILT.
