Tips for Modern Hatchery Management

Smith headshot

Incubation period variation is related to the growth rate of the embryos that differs between batches of eggs.  Flock age and egg storage are the few parameters that influence embryonic growth rate and, thus, hatching duration. New techniques will allow greater control over embryonic growth to influence uniformity. Other new developments that include increased roles for both ultrasound and micrometry egg shell analysis grading shell thickness by mass to influence the hatch window and day-old chick uniformity. This will assist in creating robust day-old chicks, better prepared to express their genetic potential from the moment of hatch.

With today’s improved genetic capabilities and the fast growth of birds, more time is being spent during the critical brooding phase. As a result, ensuring a good start in poultry production can have a significant impact on the future health and performance of the birds. Environmental management of the chicken house includes many components, such as temperature, relative humidity, ventilation lighting, feed and water. A better understanding of these components work both individually and together as a guide to reach to best management practices. This webinar is sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim and presented by WATT Global Media.

Combat low-pathogen avian influenza (Part 1)

egg hatching

H9N2 viruses have been circulating in Eurasian poultry industry resulting in great economic losses due to decline in egg production and moderate to high mortality. Influenza A viruses of the H9N2 subtype have been causing infections in poultry population around the globe. Even to this day H9N2 is still one of the three primary AI subtypes devastating poultry industry. Join this informative webinar series as industry experts discuss the ways to combat low-pathogen and high-pathogen avian influenza. This webinar series is sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim and is presented by WATT Global Media.

Avian Influenza can affect all species of birds in intensive poultry rearing system young laying hens are usually the most affected species. Free-living birds may carry influenza virus without becoming ill due to natural resistance. It is known that wild waterfowl present a natural reservoir for these viruses and can be responsible for the primary introduction of infection into domestic poultry.  Join this informative webinar series as industry experts discuss the ways to combat low-pathogen and high-pathogen AI.  This the second part in a two-part series.  This webinar series is sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim and is presented by WATT Global Media.

Understanding challenges of Newcastle disease and prevention strategies

Zavala headshot

Newcastle disease (ND) is a highly contagious, generalized viral disease of domestic poultry, cage and aviary birds, and wild birds but also seen in domestic poultry as a rapidly fatal, high-mortality condition characterized by gastrointestinal, respiratory and/or nervous signs. ND viruses have a varying capability to produce clinical disease in domestic chickens, with some virus strains showing high levels of pathogenicity. Vaccination and biosecurity are considered the best remedies in the prevention and control of the disease in domestic poultry.  This webinar is sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim and presented by WATT Global Media.
