Antibiotic reduction strategies in poultry production: Lessons learned

BI November Webinar thmbcvr

Some of the reasons more producers are looking at antibiotic-free (ABF) meat include strong demand from consumers, restaurants and other food service companies; the threat of antimicrobial resistance; and stringent regulations on the use of antibiotics. There are many other good reasons for poultry producers to strive for ABF production systems, including to successfully produce poultry meat without antibiotics. This requires a paradigm shift starting at the parent stock level, with ABF production of hatching eggs. The poultry industry needs to find a long-term solution that is accompanied by appropriate biosecurity, monitoring and disease control. The solution also needs to support using modern nutritional and disease control strategies in the agricultural sector. Featured webinar speakers will include Dr. Jeanine Wiegel, DVM, MAHM, Poultry Veterinarian, and Dr. Stephane Lemiere, DVM, Global Head, Technical Services, Boehringer Ingelheim.

How to control mycoplasma infections in poultry flocks

BI July webinar thmbcvr

Multi-age poultry layer flocks infected with Mycoplasma may also have strains of upper respiratory tract infections synovitis and airsacculitis. Mycoplasma occurs in most poultry-producing countries and can be especially virulent in commercial layer flocks as infection rates may be very high. The spread is generally rapid within and between poultry houses. While illness is variable and bird mortality may not be very high, Mycoplasma is an economically significant pathogen that can cause significant losses in chickens, turkeys, and game birds. Because of Mycoplasma, birds may experience lameness, reduced feed efficiency, decreased growth and lower egg production and bird carcasses sent to slaughter may also be downgraded, which negatively impacts a producer’s bottom line. Featured speakers include Dr. Stephane Lemiere, DVM, Global Head, Technical Services, Boehringer Ingelheim, and Dr. Anneke Feberwee, DVM, Royal GD.

COVID-19 Impact: Global poultry and egg purchases, behaviors

BI May webinar thmbcvr

Consumer purchasing behavior changed dramatically as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Retail sales of poultry meat and eggs have soared both in-store and online. Click and pay formats as well as home delivery have experienced outstanding growth. With countries starting to ease social distancing restrictions and restaurants and other food service outlets open for in-house dining, how will consumers around the globe react? What pandemic fueled changes will remain, and which old purchasing patterns and behaviors will return. David Hughes, PhD., Emeritus Professor of Food Marketing, Imperial College London, and Chris DuBois, senior vice president and principal, IRI, will share data on how the COVID-19 pandemic has changed consumer purchasing behavior globally and offer insight into how consumers will behave in the remainder of 2020 and beyond.

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. This webinar is sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim and presented by WATT Global Media.

Modern Day Broiler Brooding Management

Smith headshot

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.

Combat high-pathogen avian influenza (Part 2)

Cookson headshot

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.
