US - The annual 2011 Poultry Production & Health Seminar scheduled for next month will cover the skills necessary for excellent production and health management.


Superior production and health management skills are needed to balance decisions such as increased flock size, improved housing, rapid growth rate, shorter grow-out periods, and variable health programmes. Sponsored by US Poultry & Egg Association's Poultry & Egg Institute, the conference will be held on 20 to 21 September at the Hilton Hotel Center City, downtown Charlotte, North Carolina.

Programme chairman, Frank Halpin of Pilgrim's Pride Corporation, explained: "The grow-out phase of broiler meat production has evolved into a sophisticated operation based on biological principles, implementation of technology, least-cost management, and bottom-line decision making. This year's seminar will review the challenge of translating the tremendous advances in genetics, nutrition, and advancement in technologies into improved efficiency in such areas as feed efficiency and livability."

Topics on the programme include Energy-Smart Improvements in Housing; Lighting Technology for Broiler Performance; Animal Welfare Audits; What's New in Environmental Regulations for Live Production; The Economics of Windrowing; and other relevant topics to help maintain healthy flocks.
