Pathogens & Prevention Special Focus
The poultry industry needs to achieve excellent production figures without the use of antibiotics. Now how can that be achieved? Keeping pathogens out altogether? Creating healthier poultry by feed, health strategies or management? There are many ways to make steps – and this section aims to address all.
"Facing a new world order"
The current avian influenza situation has rung the alarm bells across the globe. The American poultry and egg industry is suffering losses. James Sumner, president of the USA Poultry & Egg Export Council is worried: “We are facing an entire new world order.”
Replacing formaldehyde in hatcher disinfection
The hatchery sector has proven their dynamic attitude to replace formalin in the disinfection area by a safer and better alternative. This rapid movement has been instigated by the latest developments. Promising results of the formalin-free hatcher disinfection protocol pave the path for the hatcheries to finally implement their protocols for egg disinfection without formalin, from start to finish.
Preventive intestinal health through a multifactorial nutrition based health approach
It seems inevitable that the use of medication in animal production worldwide will decline in the future and preventive health management strategies will be the way forward. Where legislation is not already in place, consumer pressure is building up on the use of antimicrobials.
Probiotics as an extra tool to keep Salmonella under control
Salmonellosis due to consumption of contaminated eggs is representing a major public health problem. The complexity of the epidemiology of Salmonella demands a systemic approach. Biosecurity, vaccination and probiotics work hand in hand to keep Salmonella under control.
The ins and outs of necrotic enteritis
The costly intestinal disease, necrotic enteritis (NE), has severe consequences for gut health. Recently, NE has re-emerged as one of the most serious diseases of commercial poultry, prompting producers to consider whether there is more they could be doing to maximise their flock’s productivity.
US in state of emergency over HPAI
As large parts of the world worry about sporadic outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza, the US is hit hard. States Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin declared a state of emergency. On more than 100 farms the virus was detected and millions of birds had to be destroyed. HPAI is in the migratory routes of wild birds now, posing new challenges and demanding new approaches.
Functional additives as an alternative to AGP's
Global poultry production is expected to increase 5% per year. At the same time consumers demand healthier safety-proven production methods. The trend to reduce antibiotic uses is undeniable, and is steadily expanding. Simultaneously, the increasing ineffectiveness of antibiotics due to resistance development is another concern.
Old bird diseases occur more among free-range hens
Over the last two decades old bird diseases, such as Coryza, Blackhead and Pasteurelle multocida increasingly reared their ugly heads among free-range hens. These diseases barely occurred when laying hens were kept in cages.
A continuously challenged eco-system
Modern animal production is known for its high genetic potential, which is often not achieved due to different and complex challenges during the animal’s lifecycle. One of the critical points is situated at the border of the intestinal tube. The gut is a continuously challenged eco-system in need of support.
Disinfection during lay keeps birds healthy
Disinfection of the poultry house is normally carried out between rounds. Within the production cycle the options to tackle micro-organisms are limited, especially during the long cycles in laying. Disinfection during lay is a viable option to keep birds healthy.
