Abstract:
Background and Objective: Poultry farming can provide gainful employment to poultry workers throughout the year in Bangladesh. To run successful poultry production, sanitation and waste management practices should be deliberately practiced to avoid a high rate of disease incidence. This study was conducted to assess disease incidence, the sanitation condition of the farms, personal awareness of workers and waste management practices in small scale commercial poultry farms in Mithapukur Upazila, Rangpur. Materials and Methods: The current study was conducted on twenty poultry farms in Mithapukur Upazila, Rangpur, Bangladesh from January-December 2019 to determine disease incidence in poultry, to monitor environmental conditions and to assess the water quality along with sanitation condition of small scale commercial poultry farms by structured questionnaire survey through personal interview. Results: The maximum disease incidence (DI) was recorded 18.23% in January while the minimum DI was recorded 7.22% in May. Minimum DI was found in those farms where workers used deep tube-well water whereas municipal supply water and tube-well water user had higher DI in poultry. Out of 20 poultry farms, 85% farms did not meet the required level of hygienic condition where DI was found to be in maximum level, however, 15% farms were found to follow the proper sanitation protocols where DI were in a minimal level. Conclusion: It could be concluded that the sanitation condition of the farms, water quality and personal awareness of workers along with their hygiene practices reduce disease incidence of poultry flocks and improve poultry production husbandry practices.
