Regular vaccination along with better management practises and biosecurity plays a vital role in the sustenance and growth of the poultry sector. However, despite of vaccinating all the birds on the farm, the poultry industry reported Newcastle Disease cases year after year. To understand the benefits of vaccination in monetary terms, a retrospective study was conducted with the purpose to estimate the benefits of regular/complete vaccination over incomplete vaccination against Newcastle Disease. The data was obtained directly from farmers with a total sample size of 90-layer farms for the period April 2021- March 2022. The partial budget analysis technique was employed, and the overall incremental benefit of complete vaccination was estimated to be ~22 INR per bird. Hence the study suggests poultry farmers to follow complete vaccination on their farms as a standard management practice.
