9th edition of Poultry World 2017 now online

In the 9th issue of Poultry World we visit a large layer operation in non-forgiving Siberia. There is an interview with a microbiologist on antibiotic usage. Plus, a trip to Brazil to see how the country is dealing with the aftermath of the meat scandal.

Zarya poultry farm, near the Siberian city of Krasnojarsk is 100% Russian. That said, the hens and the farm equipment stem from Western Europe. See article on page 11.

'Layers in Siberia' - At Zarya farm the houses for laying hens have been completely renovated. The old stones are reused in the new walls. The result is impressive; the houses look good.

Furthermore our interview with microbiologist Dr Alastair Thomas focusses on antibiotic usage. “Antibiotics covered up a lot of issues’’, according to the expert. With antibiotic usage being heavily debated these days, increasingly the notion is growing that animal health and animal nutrition are actually two sides of the same coin. See article on page 6
