A novel approach was taken in an effort to slow down or eliminate the grave losses experienced repeatedly at a large three age tom turkey growout facility. High morbidity and continued mortality rates of eighty percent were experienced in the affected barns. Isolation of Histomonas meleagridis, at University of Georgia, and subsequent experimenal reproduction confirmed the strain to be high virulence.
