NEWCASTLE DISEASE IN POULTRY This monograph reports on a novel and practical way to control Newcastle disease. A food pellet has been developed which contains the V4 Newcastle disease virus, a non pathogenic, heat resistant virus which which shows great potential to dramatically improve village chicken production in tropical and developing countries. The papers included in the publication were presented at a workshop held in Kuala Lumpur in March 1987. The main contributors to this research are researchers at the University of Queensland of Australia and the Universiti Pertanian Malaysia. Included in the book are reports from Burma, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Thailand, on the importance of village chicken production in each country, and the impact of Newcastle disease on village chickens. References and names of participants to the Kuala Lumpur workshop also appear in the book. If the Newcastle disease is controlled by the pellet vaccine, the production of low-cost village chickens may increase. Unlike many other overseas aid programs, this one may be successful in helping the targeted people. This monograph is therefore essential reading for all those interested in working in developing countries.
