Irradiation of Shell Egg on the Physicochemical and Functional Properties of Liquid Egg White
Low-dose irradiation (2.5kGy) of shell egg would be beneficial for the egg processing sector and the safety of food products that use liquid egg white could be improved, according to Byungrok Min, Ki Chang Nam, Cheorun Jo and Dong U. Ahn of Iowa State...
Poultry Processing: Measuring True Water Use
Brian Kiepper (Poultry Science and Biological & Agricultural Engineering Departments, and Engineering Outreach Service, University of Georgia) explains why water use in poultry processing facilities is better calculated in terms of gallons used per 1,000...
GLOBAL POULTRY TRENDS 2013: Population Growth Will Boost Asia’s Egg Uptake
The rate of human population growth in Asia is forecast to be slower than the global average, according to industry analyst, Terry Evans. Over the period 2000 to 2009, average egg intake per person in Asia overtook the world figure but there is great...
Brooding Temperatures and Heating Costs
Michael Czarick (Extension Engineer) and Brian Fairchild (Extension Poultry Specialist) at the University of Georgia show how heating costs for broiler growing are primarily determined by outside temperature and house condition....
Relationships of Incubational Hatching Egg Characteristics to Post-hatch Bodyweight and Processing Yield in Broilers
After examining the relationships between hatching egg characteristics during incubation and subsequent growth and processing yield in a modern broiler strain, researchers in the US recommend monitoring of mean daily percentage of incubational weight...
Association of Campylobacter Levels Between Chicken Grow-out Environmental Samples and Processed Carcasses
Researchers at Virginia Tech have found a good indication of Campylobacter contamination and transmission in the number of the bacteria in the broiler house, together with carcass rinse data. Their results offer a way to schedule the processing sequence...
Effects of Increasing Concentrations of Corn Dried Distiller’s Grains with Solubles on the Egg Production and Internal Quality of Eggs
Up to 50 per cent of corn dried distiller’s grains with solubles (DDGS) could be included in the layer's diet without adverse effects, providing digestible amino acid requirements are met in the DDGS-added diets, report Hongyu Sun, Eun Joo Lee, Himali...
Energy Balance Analysis of a Poultry Processing Plant
A detailed study of the power use at a poultry processing plant by researchers at the University of Arkansas identified a number of areas where cost-savings could be made. ...
GLOBAL POULTRY TRENDS 2013: Asian Egg Imports and Exports on the Rise
Asia accounts for around 30 per cent of the global trade in shell eggs, according to industry analyst, Terry Evans but the region participates little in the trade in dried or liquid egg products. ...
Ultrasound May Be Useful for Reducing Salmonella Levels in Chicken Meat
A research project at the Georgia Tech Research Institute in Atlanta demonstrates that ultrasound may be useful for reducing Salmonella levels on poultry meat in the processing plant. Its efficacy was enhanced when it was used in addition to chemicals....
Infectious Laryngotracheitis
On overview of this viral respiratory disease of poultry published in 'Drumstick' magazine from the New South Wales Department of Primary Industries....
Australian Chicken Meat: Outlook to 2018-19
Chicken meat production is projected to grow over the period to 2018–19, reflecting continued growth in domestic consumer demand, according to Clay Mifsud in the 'Agricultural Commodities' report from the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource...
Effect of Slow and Rapid Peroxidation of Corn Oil on the Performance and Energy Storage of Broiler Chicks
Corn oil peroxidation status had some minimal effects on broiler performance to 27 days of age but did result in significant differences in abdominal fat pad weight. This suggests an impact of the treatment on energy utilisation, according to a study...
Nutrient Deposition and Energy Utilisation in Slow-growing Broilers Fed with Organic Diets
The growth patterns of slow-growing male and female broilers in organic systems were found to be so different by a group of researchers in Germany that they recommend using separate feeding programmes for rearing the sexes in these systems. ...
Apoptosis Induction in Duck Tissues during Duck Hepatitis A Virus Type 1 Infection
Researchers in China have found that the multiplication of the virus is exacerbated by changes in the destruction of the duck tissues....
