Abstract

A 1.3 to 10% incidence of necrotic enteritis was experimentally produced in broiler-type chickens in three of five trials. The incidence range observed was considerably narrower and lower than the 5.6-37.3% range reported in the literature. Clostridium perfringens was inconsistently isolated from the liver and intestine of dosed chickens.
