The 3rd edition of Poultry World 2017 is now online

This issue of Poultry World looks at the avian influenza situation, the risks and the solutions. There is also poultry gut health, the definition and identification of markers. An issue not to be missed!

Poultry producers in Europe and the US are out of the woods when it comes to the avian influenza threat from wild birds. The most dangerous virus shedding birds have migrated to other places. Poultry World features an article on British organic layer farmer Daniel Hoeberichts and his system to scare away the last wild birds with a laser gun.

  • The automated laser is an innovative method of repelling unwanted birds without causing harm to the wild birds, the chickens and the surrounding environment.

Furthermore, Belgian professor Richard Ducatelle focusses on the definition of gut health and identification of markers. It is generally accepted that necrotic enteritis is a poultry disease, and that the causative agent is NetB positive Clostridium perfringens.

  • When dysbiosis evolves into a clinical disease problem, with obvious animal suffering as consequence, actions must be taken and then treatment of the animals with antibiotics is medically safe and necessary. Photo: Jan Zandee

Nevertheless, the mere administration of a pathogenic Clostridium perfringens strain to susceptible broilers does not allow the disease to reproduce. Conversely, NetB positive Clostridium perfringens can be cultured from the intestine of perfectly healthy broilers. What mechanisms make our birds sick?

This and many more valuable articles are accessible in our online edition.
