Even though the use of cage growing has greatly minimized the use of coccidiostats and antibiotics, some cage units that have had coccidiosis in the past also use coccidiostats for selected times during growing. Although vaccination is the most common method of preventing Mg, some producers use government-approved antibiotics for all or part of the lay cycle in order to prevent this disease (Table 2).
