Abstract

Disease prevalence in turkeys was estimated by totaling the flock size of necropsy cases submitted to the University of Georgia in 1986 for each disease reported and comparing it with the population at risk. Fowl cholera was the most prevalent disease in both commercial tom flocks (18.0%) and breeder hen flocks (14.7%). Prevalence of colibacillosis was 15.9% in commercial tom flocks, and prevalence of aspergillosis was 8.5% in commercial tom and 4.9% in breeder hen flocks. /// A partir de los casos de necropsias enviadas a la Universidad de Georgia en 1986, se estimó la incidencia de enfermedades en pavos calculando el total del tamaño de los lotes por cada enfermedad reportada y comparando con la población en riesgo. El cólera aviar tuvo la más alta incidencia tanto en lotes de machos comerciales (18%) como en lotes de reproductoras (14.7%). En los lotes de machos la incidencia de colibacilosis y aspergilosis fue de 15.9% y 8.5%, respectivamente, mientras que la incidencia de aspergilosis en lotes de reproductoras fue del 4.9%.
