Three months after an avian influenza outbreak, Mexico's egg industry is meeting ongoing challenges and expects to be back to regular production by April–May 2013, said delegate Cesar de Anda at the International Egg Commission's conference on September 11.
Mexico has the virus under control, said de Anda, who was among the representatives from 14 countries discussing the challenges and opportunities their national egg industries are currently facing. Egg producers and the country's government worked in partnership, developing a new vaccine which has been used to good effect. De Anda also praised the Mexican egg producers for their quick and effective response, saying that local egg producers made the decision to cull birds to prevent the spread of the virus. He said that the next 12 months will be the most challenging for Mexico's egg industry.
Representatives from Europe, South Africa, Asia and North and South America attended the discussion.
