We have 7 new features this week:

Zoonoses in the EU: Trends and Sources

Measuring Hatching Egg Shell Quality
A report into the effects of egg specific gravity and eggshell colour on hatchability by Jon Moyle, Doug Yoho and Keith Bramwell of University of Arkansas. They found that eggs with specific gravity values higher than 1.070 will hatch well, and that only very pale-coloured eggs had reduced hatchability. The article was published in the Winter 2008 issue of the Avian Advice.
High Feed Prices - Reevaluating Turkey Slaughter Ages and Weights
Maximising the genetic potential of today's fast growing turkeys may not be the best strategy when input costs are high. Dr Kenneth K. Krueger of Diamond K Research and Consulting Service illustrated this concept with a model that he presented at the 2008 North Carolina Turkey Days.
New Study Clarifies Health Issues over Egg Consumption
It's official: eggs contribute an insignificant risk to heart disease, according to this US egg industry report.
Prospects for Poultry Markets in the EU and Globally: 2008 – 2017
AVEC, the Association of Poultry Processors and Poultry Trade in the EU Countries, has published its annual report for 2008, which includes an overview of the projections from various international agencies on the production of poultry meat in the European Union and also projected trade between leading exporting and importing countries.
US Feed Outlook
US feed grain supplies are expected to be up slightly from last month, but they show a fall year on year, according to the USDA Economic Research Service Feed Outlook for January 2009. Production of corn and Sorghum is up, and ever more corn being used to produce ethanol, the report says.
