Abstract
Situation or Problem: In 2007 an estimated 9.1 billion broiler chickens were produced in the United States. Improvements in vaccination uniformity and reductions in labor necessary for vaccination would greatly benefit the broiler industry. Current methods of field vaccination of broiler chickens in the field include administration via drinking water and spray application. The effectiveness of both methods is limited by non-uniform application and spray application is also labor intensive.
