Description

Vaccinated sentinels held in isolation until ~35 days of age were placed on Delmarva broiler farms (2015 – 2016). The sentinels were removed at 7-10 days post placement, necropsied and samples collected for virus isolation, RT PCR and virus genotyping. The characterization of variant IBV and IBDV isolates will be described.
