Government Interference in Poultry Disease Eradication: Avian Flu in Mexico
Low-pathogenic avian flu in Mexico represents a direct cost to the local poultry industry of US$246 million annually over the last 18 years, or a cumulative $4.4 billion, according to Armando Mirandé, DVM, MPVM, MAM, ACPV. He outlines how these costs...
Optimising Broiler Muscle Development
A young poultry researcher from Australia has been studying the effects of chicken muscle cells under limited nutrition in the US in order better to understand the long-term effects of feed restriction in newly hatched broiler chicks on subsequent growth....
Comparison of the Environmental Footprint of the US Egg Industry in 1960 and 2010
Using Life Cycle Assessment, researchers have found that the environmental footprint of US egg production in 2010 is 65 per cent lower in acidifying emissions, 71 per cent lower in eutrophication emissions, 71 per cent lower in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions...
Effects of Dietary Soy Inclusion on Broiler Chick Performance and Metabolisable Energy
High concentrations of soy products did not affect growth of young broilers but feed intake was reduced in this study at Iowa State University. Soy might limit feed intake, possibly due to anti-nutrient or non-digestible components, according to researchers,...
Different Sources of Dietary Zinc for Broilers Subjected to Immunological, Nutritional and Environmental Challenge
Research from Brazil reveals that zinc (from an organic or inorganic source) can be fed to broilers at less than 100ppm without affecting humoral immunity, zinc concentration in the carcass or bird performance. At the same level of zinc, the organic source...
Continuing Multiplication of Salmonella enteritidis Strains in Egg Yolk During Refrigeration
The results of a USDA Agricultural Research Service experiment support the prompt refrigeration of eggs to 7.2 degrees Centigrade to control Salmonella enteritidis but even that did not halt multiplication of some of the strains of this potential foodborne...
GLOBAL POULTRY TRENDS 2013: Egg Trade of Little Importance in the Americas
While world trade in shell eggs almost doubled between 2000 and 2010 and fell back somewhat in 2011, the Americas accounted for just seven per cent of global exports in 2011 and less than four per cent of imports, writes industry analyst, Terry Evans....
Floor Laying Reduces Production Efficiency in Ducks
Researchers in Australia are seeking ways to improves egg production by ducks by encouraging them to use nest boxes....
Effects of Welfare-enhancing System Changes on Environmental Impacts of Broiler and Egg Production
Welfare-friendly changes in chicken systems can be achieved without a compromise in their environmental impacts, according to a team of UK-based researchers. They compared battery and colony cages for laying hens and for broilers, a standard and lower...
Growth, Water Intake, Litter Moisture, Carcass and Physiological Traits of Broiler Chickens as Affected by Dietary Potassium
Broiler growth performance was better with a lower level of potassium in an experiment in South Korea. Substituting potassium sulphate for the carbonate salt improved water and feed intake, increased mortality and affected carcass composition....
Clostridium perfringens in Poultry Feed Ingredients and Control with Chemical Treatments
The pathogen that causes necrotic enteritis in broilers, Clostridium perfringens, was found in 60 per cent of feed samples in Brazil, where researchers found that some chemical treatments were effective in reducing contamination. ...
Iowa State University Animal Industry Report 2014
Iowa State University's Department of Animal Science has published its annual Animal Industry Report for 2014, which includes a number of reports of its work on poultry....
Characterisation of Eimeria in Australia
Coccidiosis in Australia is widespread, species are ubiquitous, dynamic and genetically diverse, and this diversity does not appear to be geographically structured, according to new research from the University of Queensland reported by Poultry CRC....
Collaborative Studies on Cyanosis in Broiler Breeders
New research at Mississippi State University has increased understanding on cyanosis, a blue or purple colour of the skin in broiler breeders. They found differences in heart function between the three genetic lines they studied and a lower incidence...
GLOBAL POULTRY TRENDS 2013: Americas Account for 20 Per Cent of Global Egg Output
Global egg output is heading towards 68 million tonnes, with the Americas producing one-fifth of the total, reports poultry industry analyst, Terry Evans, in his latest look at egg production in that region....
