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. /// Se realizó un estudio en 160 granjas de pavos de engorde en California entre agosto de 1985 y julio de 1986 para determinar brotes de cólera aviar. Casi 27 millones de pavos estaban potencialmente a riesgo de contraer la enfermedad durante este período. Se pudo confirmar el cólera aviar en 53 parvadas de aproximadamente 3 millones de pavos pertenecientes a 34 granjas distintas. La curva epidémica para este año indicó que la mayoría de los brotes ocurrió a fines del verano y durante el otoño, particularmente en octubre. La incidencia de brotes durante ese período no fué influenciada por la variación estacional del tamaño de la población de pavos. La edad promedio de las parvadas durante la ocurrencia de un brote fué de 10.8 semanas, con un rango de 5 a 18 semanas.
