It is of paramount importance its understanding as its comprehension helps to understand the parasite epidemiology in the field, its pathogenicity and immunobiology. The full article with an animated video of the lifecycle of Coccidia can be accessed here.

Seven species of Eimeria (E. acervulina, E. brunetti, E. maxima, E. mitis, E. necatrix, E. praecox and E. tenella) are recognised to be causative agents of coccidiosis in chickens of the genus Gallus gallus.

To support producers, Hipra have built an Eimeria Prevention resource library featuring videos, blogs, vaccines and dose calculations.
