JAIMES-OLAYA, Javier Andrés et al. The infectious diseases and their importance in the poultry industry. Rev. Med. Vet. [online]. 2010, n.20, pp.49-61. ISSN 0122-9354.

Poultry industry has become one of the most promising and fastest growing in Colombia, within the context of a country whose best skills are in the agricultural sector. For this reason, programs currently being implemented to improve the quality of poultry products, with the aim not only to maintain the growth of the industry but to expand the frontiers to export. However, the poultry industry faces a great challenge to production level, because infectious diseases affecting birds continue to be the major headache of the sector, even over food and genetics. This article presents relevant elements concerning the poultry industry as well as official control infectious diseases and some infectious diseases that afflict more, emphasizing the importance of the intervention for managing and controlling such diseases.
