A.S. Series 74-20
Fatty liver syndrome, now more commonly known as fatty liver-hemorrhagic syndrome (FLHA) , has become an increasing problem in recent years, especially in cage-type laying operations. It seems to occur in flocks that are apparently healthy and in good laying condition. Symptoms characteristic of the disease are about a 25% increase in body weight along with a 30% or more decrease in production, an increase in mortality and excessive abdominal and liver fat that leads to hematomas of the liver.
