There are relatively few hatcheries that specialise in waterfowl. Their programs and procedures are largely based on traditions and many years of practical local experience.
Usually, people try to mimic Mother Nature. Waterfowl nest close to water, and a brooding female returns to the nest from the water wet and chilled. It would seem that these conditions help hatchability, as it is rare to find an unhatched egg in the nests of wild ducks or geese.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has had a tremendous impact on human health and the economy worldwide. Poultry processing specialist Meyn is eager to help recover human health and global economy by supporting aspiring poultry processors and farmers in Africa to professionalize their business to achieve higher levels of hygiene, efficiency AND increase their profit.

A new tool from the Agricultural Research Service (ARS) can predict the odds that honey bee colonies overwintered in cold storage will be large enough to rent for almond pollination in February. Identifying which colonies will not be worth spending dollars to overwinter can improve beekeepers' bottom line.

Beekeepers have been losing an average of 30 percent of overwintered colonies for nearly 15 years.

Al Zain Poultry Farms Oman 3 Al Zain Poultry Farms, a Ross® 308 broiler customer from Oman, recently became a member of the Ross 400 Club. Al Zain Poultry Farms established its broiler operation in 2018 and is currently rearing 1.2 million Ross 308 broilers per cycle with 9 cycles per year. The Ross 400 Club recognizes producers who score a European Product Efficiency Factor (EPEF) of 400 or more with their broiler flocks.

 National U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) survey, published recently in Plant Disease, provides the first large-scale, systematic insight into how wheat and barley growers manage Fusarium head blight (FHB), also known as scab, and where they get information on how to control this destructive disease.

Today, Roxell, the leading manufacturer of automatic feeding, drinking, nesting and heating systems, is launching the Shen-Turbo 100, a space heater that generates more heat with 80,000 BTU/h of propane than similarly sized heaters on the market. The compact Shen-Turbo 100 is a new addition to Roxell's range of convection heaters. Shen-Turbo provides a solution to a number of specific needs of pig and poultry farmers.

A Mississippi-based Agricultural Research Service (ARS) researcher has learned that using poultry litter as fertilizer can help cotton growers in the Southeast maximize profits.

Poultry litter (chicken manure, spilled feed, excess feathers, and other poultry-house materials) contains nitrogen and phosphorus—both important crop nutrients. Applying poultry litter to the soil also recycles some of the tons of litter generated annually by poultry operations throughout the United States, says Haile Tewolde, an ARS agronomist at Mississippi State.

Water hardness can influence the development of columnaris disease in catfish, according to a study by U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) scientists.

Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists found a difference in disease development in fish exposed to hard and soft water containing the bacterial pathogen Flavobacterium columnare, which causes columnaris disease

Using poultry litter as fertilizer is a welcome trend in many southern states because that is where most of the U.S. broiler chickens are produced. The litter's nitrogen content helps boost crop yields, and also helps reduce farmers' expenses for commercial fertilizers. But a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) agronomist has found that many farmers in Mississippi may be applying litter at the wrong time of year.

Classic Caesar salad, old-fashioned eggnog, some homemade ice cream—and many other popular foods—may contain raw eggs. Now, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)-led research has produced a faster way to pasteurize raw, in-shell eggs without ruining their taste, texture, color or other important qualities.

A number of poultry industry groups are using a less costly method to collect avian influenza virus samples, thanks to U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) scientists.

 

Avian influenza is a foreign disease that infects poultry and other bird species. Viruses identified as highly pathogenic cause severe disease, killing more than 90 percent of infected birds. Low pathogenic viruses are not as severe, but can cause sickness in birds as well as financial losses

An alternate vaccine delivery system for newborn chicks has been developed by U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) scientists to improve vaccination against intestinal diseases like coccidiosis.

dairy olympicsMay 23, 2021- The spacious and vibrant port city of Novorossiysk, Russia hosted 300 visitors and participants from 40 national regions, all of them agriculture professionals, dairy experts and government agencies, for XII Dairy Olympics and VII Milk Summit. The annual event is a brainchild of The Dairy News, the largest independent mass media on dairy in Russia.

In 2001, World Milk Day was established by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations to recognize the importance of milk as a global food, and to celebrate the dairy sector. Each year since, the benefits of milk and dairy products have been actively promoted around the world, including how dairy supports the livelihoods of one billion people.

Grazing is an agricultural term to describe the natural behavior of cattle moving across pastures and rangelands as they consume different plants. Surprisingly, grazing cattle are selective about where and which plants they will eat, and land managers consider grazing distribution an essential factor in deciding how to manage their herds, including how to prevent overgrazing for conserving biodiversity of the land.

Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists are developing an innovative approach to address a major environmental challenge facing the nation's animal farmers: the accumulation of nutrients in the manure.

Manure produced in livestock and poultry operations has been increasing since the 1950s when large-scale feeding operations, along with large-scale crop farms, began to replace many of the nation's small, family-run farms that traditionally produced both crops and livestock and used the manure as fertilizer to boost crop yields.

Calves are young and vulnerable animals. In a short period, calves have to develop from a monogastric into a ruminant animal. This transition requires them to grow in both size and mass, while dealing with transportation, man handling and changing environments. All these challenges together cause a lot of stress that may lead to a lower immune system.

Maximizing efficiency and minimizing environmental impact

In a drive towards sustainable solutions, PANCOSMA, ADM’s global feed additives business, have developed a range of XTRACT® bioactive products to address methane emissions of livestock ruminants. According to FAO 2013*, these emissions represent 5% of all greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere.
