I apologize,but this information wouldn’t give any useful data.In open-system farms you always have bacteria,viruses and parasites.This screening wouldn’t help to get right decision.Unfortunatly ,you forget the known scheme of Sniezko: disease happens not only of pathogen!You have to take in consideration the conditons of enviroment!
