Vocalisation Study Provides Insight into the Well-being of Birds in Grow-out Houses
Sensors capable of reliably monitoring the well-being of birds reared in confined housing currently do not exist but researchers from Georgia Tech Research Institute are making progress on using the noises made by broilers to indicate health or welfare...
Studies on Newly Emerging Reassortant Very Virulent Infectious Bursal Disease Viruses
Current breeder vaccination programmes may not adequately protect birds against the more recent very virulent strains of infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV), concludes an Ohio State University researcher from a new study....
Sambucus nigra Extracts Inhibit Infectious Bronchitis Virus at an Early Point during Replication
Sambucus nigra (common elderberry) extract was found in an in-vitro studies in the US to inhibit the Infectious Bronchitis virus at an early point in infection....
Spatial and Temporal Analysis of Microbial Populations in Production Broiler House Litter in the SE United States
While Clostridium perfringens, Staphylococcus spp. and Enterococcus spp. were consistently present in the litter, foodborne and poultry pathogen levels were difficult to predict, according to new research from Mississippi....
Immune Responses to Eimeria tenella Sporozoite Protein as Vaccine to Broiler against Coccidiosis
A new study from Syria found two types of immune responses, humoral and cellular immune responses to sporozoite antigen which conferred effective protection to broilers against one of the pathogens causing coccidiosis....
New Vaccine to Protect Against Two Important Poultry Diseases
North Carolina State University scientists have achieved a biological characterisation of a serotype 1 Marek's disease virus-vectored bi-valent vaccine for infectious laryngotracheitis and Marek's disease....
Assessing the Risk of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza H5N1 Transmission through Poultry Movements in Bali, Indonesia
An international group of researchers has found that live poultry movements play in transmitting the H5N1 avian flu virus in Indonesia, and that a variety of control measures is necessary to reduce disease spread....
Spray Application of Live Attenuated Mycoplasma Gallisepticum Vaccines
Both of the Mycoplasma gallisepticum live attenuated vaccines tested in pullets in this work in Mississippi were equally effective when applied by spray application. The researchers remarked that the dosages required for a consistent response were higher...
Influence of Dietary Calcium and Phytase on Bird Performance during a Natural Necrotic Enteritis Episode
A new study reveals that higher dietary calcium had negative effects on mortality associated with necrotic enteritis in broilers and on their performance. Calcium source and phytase supplementation also affected performance, gizzard pH and the digestibility...
GB Emerging Threats Report – Avian Diseases – July-September (Q3) 2013
Among the highlights of the latest report are the re-emergence of fowl typhoid in the UK in two linked free-range layer flocks and reovirus-associated tenosynovitis. ...
Potential for Probiotics to Prevent Reproductive Tract Lesions in Free-range Laying Hens
Reproductive problems that lead to a drop in egg production and sudden deaths were reduced in free-range hens in this Australian experiment when the birds received a commercial probiotic around the onset of lay....
Evaluation of Soybean Meal Source and Particle Size on Broiler Performance, Nutrient Digestibility and Gizzard Development
Two experiments at the Prestage Department of Poultry Science examine the interactions between maize and soybean particle sizes, nutrient digestibility and broiler growth. Gizzard weight was more affected by the particle size of the maize in the diet...
Growth Performance, Antioxidant Status and Immunity in Broilers under Different Lighting Regimes
Chinese research reveals that lighting programme can affect the antioxidant status and non-specific immunity of broilers although the birds' growth was not affected in this study....
Range of Health Issues Addressed in Final AVMA Poultry Session
Among the topics discussed in the final 'Miscellaneous' session on poultry disease at the 150th annual convention of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) in Chicago in July 2013 were clostridial dermatitis in turkeys, Intestinal Dilation...
Research Enhances the Understanding of Runting and Stunting Syndrome of Broilers
Three new studies at the University of Georgia shed new light on the causes of Runting-Stunting Syndrome (RSS) in chickens and the possibilities of vaccination as a means of preventing the disease....
