Fowl cholera is a contagious disease of domestic fowls and many wild birds caused by a bacterium, Pasteurella multocida. It is one of the oldest known infectious diseases of poultry. In South Dakota, fowl cholera has been a poultry disease of major importance for many years. Experimental work was undertaken at this station in 1944 to study fowl cholera as related to this area and to investigate the development or improvement of control measures to more effectively prevent losses from this disease. This bulletin is a report of that work.
