INTRODUCTION

Newcastle is a disease caused by a virus in the family of paramyxoviruses. It appears in three forms: lentogenic or mild, mesogenic or moderate and velogenic or very virulent, also called exotic Newcastle disease. The lentogenic strains are very widespread, but cause few disease outbreaks.1
It usually presents as a respiratory disease, but depression, nervous manifestations, or diarrhea may be the predominant clinical form.2
In low challenge countries, commercial broiler chickens are often facing the uncontrolled circulation of lentogenic (vaccine) strains, especially in high densely populated poultry areas. As a result, they may show subtle to overt respiratory signs, because of the inflammation of the trachea. As a result, flock uniformity will decrease. Ultimately, slaughterhouse condemnations may increase due to excessive airsacculitis.3

In today’s tough times, there are various reasons for poultry processors to reconsider the number of operatives in their cut-up department and think about automating the process. Even if space is at a premium and budget is important, Marel’s ACM-NT Compact automated cut-up solution can fit in any poultry processing plant to fulfill all of the cut-up needs. Making use of ACM-NT’s proven breast, leg and wing cutting modules, the custom-designed system can make any high-grade chicken part customers ask for.

Being grounded during the Covid-19 pandemic, I'm unable to travel as I usually would to visit hatcheries. I stay in touch with customers via e-mail and phone, advising them on incubation issues. Fortunately, it's possible to log in to their hatchery management software, so I can analyse data such as climate graphs. But it's just not the same as a live visit – you can't see, smell or feel the real situation.
