Abstract

A face to face survey was carried out in randomly selected 124 layer producers in 7 most important egg producing cities in Turkey between September 2006 and May 2007 in order to investigate the financial impacts of the Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) outbreaks in Turkish commercial layer-egg producers. The financial analyses were divided into 3 periods, namely 'before the outbreak (October 2004-January 2005)', 'during the outbreak (October 2005 - January 2006)' and 'after the outbreak (February-May 2006)'.
