  • Hi Venkat, i am really interested in setting up a modern poultry farm in Ghana. How do you fit in in this idea? Ghana imports close to $300 million poultry for local consumption and wants to boost local production and ban importation. so Government is giving out incentives to entrepreneurs to go into the production. Am looking to partnering any individual or company poised for success in this venture. Ghana lacks a modern poultry industry. Lets join hands and make it big. Interested parties can contact me through myambrosino200@yahoo.com Thanks

  • 6. www.WATTAgNet.com | October 2010 4 Performance, opportunity in the poultry industry This edition of Poultry International brings you an update of our Top Companies survey. As we were about to finish this issue, the news emerged that New Zealand’s largest poultry producer, Tegel Foods, could be up for sale. Currently owned by a private equity group, by the time we come to publish next year’s edition, the name could have disappeared forever. Survey results can quickly go out of date, but we hope our data will remain of value. In this year’s edition, there are new entries, while other household names have disappeared. Like any industry, poultry has had its fair share of mergers and acquisitions and this is set to continue. Given the importance of the poultry market, it is little surprise that beyond the everyday pressures of running a business, there are numerous other factors that impact those companies that operate in it. The trade dispute between the U.S. and Russia rumbles on and, while it continues, producers on one side will be rubbing their hands while the other side will be wringing them. In Zimbabwe, poultry producers are concerned by the government’s decision to lift restrictions on a variety of agricultural imports, while in South Africa the outlook for producers seems to be far more positive. In Europe the outlook is good, but increasing regulation continues to be a problem. Despite uncertainties, the overall view for poultry production remains strong. Yet while the outlook seems positive, we operate in a much more connected world, where what happens in one country can have a far more direct bearing than it would have 30 or 40 years ago. Producers need to be responsive to consumer demand, efficient, and able to react quickly. Food safety issues are a case in point. When a problem arises, most importantly it must be dealt with quickly. But consumers must still eat. Any company reacting quickly will be able to satisfy demand, possibly gain market share and, importantly, trust. The poultry market remains one of opportunities. Across the following pages, we offer a selection of the companies that have responded to opportunity particularly well. □ Editor’s Comment Mark Clements The International Poultry Council (IPC) was formed to bring together poultry industry leaders from around the world to address issues of trade and science and improve relations between nations. More than 20 countries are now represented in the IPC’s membership. The IPC was established to represent all poultry associations in addressing consumer issues and policies and to represent the poultry industry before the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the Codex Alimentarius. In 2008, the OIE granted recognition to the IPC as the official organization representing the world’s poultry meat producers and, under a Memorandum of Understanding, the OIE consults the IPC when developing global animal health and welfare issues. Earlier this year, the FAO signed a memorandum with the IPC recognizing the organization as the official body representing the global industry. The IPC has also received similar recognition from the Codex Alimentarius Commission. The council initiates and develops policies to advance the interests of the industry and, through its regular meetings, members have the opportunity to shape decisions and policies. The council operates a members-only website where documentation, minutes of meetings and a directory of members can be accessed.

It is more practical to think in terms of protectotypes, evaluating vaccine strains according to the protection achieved against various field strains, rather than serotypes. Trials demonstrate that a combined vaccina- tion program with Nobilis IB Ma5 at day-old and Nobilis IB 4/91 at 14 days of age provides an excellent cross protection against a wide range of variant IB field isolates.

Brand, labeling impact consumer decisions Branding and labeling have the most impact on purchase decision, according to a study conducted in Germany using wine as the model. The results of the study published in FoodQualityandPreference documented the evaluations by 520 wine drinkers in diverse cities in Germany. Label style and brand evaluation were the important elements in motivating purchase, followed by blind taste tests. Although aroma and flavor are regarded as important attributes in determining egg quality, precise measurements of these characteristics have yet to be evaluated using appropriate techniques. Average consumers usually are not in a position to consistently distinguish differences in taste among ge- neric eggs. In contrast, studies have indicated preferences for specialty eggs, which have superior taste attributes attributed to modi- fied nutrition of hens, freshness and handling through the entire chain from production through to point of sale.

  • 10. www.WATTAgNet.com | October 2010 8 Europe’s poultry meat demand to keep rising The latest European Union (EU) poultry figures reveal that while poultry meat production grew 0.6% in 2009, volume is expected to drop slightly by 0.5% during 2010. Poultry meat imports and exports were in equilibrium in quantity last year, but the figures show that imports were considerably higher when viewed in value terms. This is because the EU exports low- value products that it cannot place anywhere in the domestic market and imports almost exclusively higher-value chicken and turkey breasts at prices that depress all meat prices in the EU. Poultry meat demand increasing The Association of Poultry Processors and Poultry Trade in the EU (AVEC) states that the medium- term prospects for the poultry sector remain positive, with an expected increase in poultry and pig meat consumption, while the consumption of other meats will decline further. According to its September 2009 report, the sector’s short production cycle and a growing consumer preference for poultry meat has enabled the industry to increase prices in line with rising feed prices, dampening the effect of higher input costs. “Competitive prices compared to other meats and strong consumer preference are projected to continue to drive EU poultry production to 12.5 million tons by 2015 (an increase of more than 8%),” according to the association, and demand is expected to outpace production during the same period. The demand for chicken meat is expected to continue to grow across the whole of the European Union in tandem with the predicted rise in the world’s population, not only because it is an efficient meat to produce and less expensive for consumers, but also because it is versatile, simple to prepare and best suited for ready meals, comments Rob Newbury, chief poultry adviser at the National Farmers Union of England and Wales. However, he is quick to point out that it is not all good news for producers in Britain. They are still facing major challenges on regulation issues within the EU, including a new directive on the welfare of meat chickens, new targets for ammonia emissions under the Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control regulations and the latest stocking density rules. UK outlook good, challenges remain While the stocking density regulations affects all EU poultry producers, Mr. Newbury explained that they were lower in the UK than elsewhere, so producers there are struggling to compete with competitors in other EU member states. Roger Abbott Medium-term prospects are positive as consumption of poultry meat increases. Poultry producer survey reveals positive outlook www.WATTAgNet.com/15998.html To learn more about the outlook for poultry production, read: Poultry producer survey revealsPoultry producer survey revealsPoultry producer survey reveals To learn more about the outlook for poultry production, read: UK chicken consumption will increase by half a kilogram every 12 to 18 months over the next 10 years – and the market is well placed to satisfy that demand.
  • 11. October 2010 | www.WATTAgNet.com 9 He warned that feed could also be a problem in the future, as any disruption in supply chains or prices could hit producers hard. “However, overall, the market is strong and there is a positive outlook for poultry producers, as long as we can keep the red tape in check and face up to all the pressure exerted on the market by the major retailers, who try to keep a tight rein on producers wherever they can,” concluded Mr. Newbury. A spokeswoman for the British Poultry Council agreed that the outlook for the poultry industry is looking very positive. The council, which is considered by many to be the voice of poultry meat, estimates that chicken consumption in the UK will increase by half a kilogram every 12 to 18 months over the next 10 years – and the market is well placed to satisfy that demand. It predicts that imports will remain steady over this period, providing up to 45% of consumption. The spokeswoman pointed out that 75% of the UK’s poultry imports currently came from other EU member states, and explained that an essential part of the council’s work is to ensure the practical implementation and equal enforcement of UK and EU legislation while still maintaining a science- based and cost-effective approach to regulations. When questioned about the possible challenges facing this sector during the coming decade, the spokeswoman said: “We expect that the two main issues will probably be animal health and animal welfare. These two matters are very much the focus on the current industry and we cannot image that this will change much in the coming years.” However, she also warned that recruitment and training had the potential to pose a major challenge to the industry in the short- to medium-term. In an effort to forestall any problems, the British Poultry Council has recently launched a new training initiative for workers and potential workers to help minimise the risk of facing a future without enough skilled staff. □ ❯ Roger Abbott is the editor of Energy Now. Competitive prices and strong consumer preference are projected to continue to drive EU poultry production to 12.5 million tons by 2015, believes the chief poultry adviser at the National Farmers Union of England and Wales, Rob Newbury. The EU should bounce back from a decline of 2.4% in table egg production during 2009 with some limited growth in 2010, in spite of the new “Welfare of Laying Hens Directive,” which will increase costs for all EU producers and make their eggs less competitive against imports. EU producer organizations claim that the new regulations could hit sections of domestic production hard, as well as encourage market distortions among various member states, because while some have had to meet all the restructuring costs out of their own pockets, others have benefited from government-funded aid. However, a spokesman for the Commission said that producers in third countries that are exporting products to the EU should be observing regulations that are at least equivalent to those in force in the Community. Credit crunch increasing appetite for poultry The UK poultry industry still appears to be riding high on the back of a weak currency and all the “benefits” it has enjoyed following the international credit crunch, although observers say that the egg market is still relatively weak. “Believe it or not, the credit crunch has really helped the poultry sector, as it has encouraged an increasing number of consumers to eat more chicken instead of red meat because it is less expensive and easier to prepare at home,” says Rob Newbury, chief poultry adviser at the National Farmers Union of England and Wales. “There has also been increased demand from manufacturers of ready meals, who have also looked to chicken meat to help them save during the difficult financial times.” All this extra demand for chicken meat across the UK has prompted producers to invest in new equipment and housing with some limited expansion to cater to the demand, especially as the long-term prospects look positive.

Tyson Foods has emerged as the largest U.S. producer, while Pilgrim's Pride is out of bankruptcy and now part of JBS USA. It has been a tough year for many, with neither the U.S. nor the Canadian economies back on track. While there may have been cutbacks, medium sized companies are reporting small increases in output. Theyearaheadcouldbefavorablefor theregion,astheslowrecoveryshould seesomeimprovementinhousehold income.Givenpoultry'sabilitytoreact morequicklythanotherproteinsectors, thenext12monthscouldpresenta numberofopportunities. Mark Clements Positive horizons for US, Canadian producers The recession may not yet be a distant memory for the top U.S. and Canadian poultry producers, but there is now more stability in the market and signs of an upturn. The editors of Poultry USA, Industria Avicola and Poultry International again extend their thanks to all those who have contributed to our World's Top Companies Survey. This year's edition reveals that a number of companies have cut production, others have new owners, and still others are in full expansion. The economic downturn, in some respects, is thought to have been a double-edged sword for the poultry industry. While disposable income may have contracted in many markets, meaning less to spend on food, in some markets that meant that chicken became the cheaper alternative. Whatever the circumstances of the individual companies that responded to this year's survey, there is no doubt that all are subject to varying pressures, and while input prices may be off their highs, regulatory, trade and consumer issues continue to shape the industry - for better or worse. Across the following section, we bring you a selection of this year's findings. Yet, just as last year, a lot more information is available online and can be found by logging on to: www.WATTAgNet. com/worldtoppoultry.html.

The poultry exporting countries of the region, Brazil, Argentina and Chile, have been particularly affected due to the sharp drop in exports. Brazil is the top broiler exporting country in the world and the second-largest turkey exporter. Mark Clements This year sees two companies disappear from our listing, and the appearance of two new names - Brasil Foods and Marfrig. Consolidation in the industry should see it better placed to respond to the market upturn. 3.6% - 2010 forecast economic growth World’s Top Poultry Companies:

  • 34. www.WATTAgNet.com | October 2010 34 Raising paw quality with litter management Footpad dermatitis (FPD) is a condition affecting broilers and turkeys and is also known as pododermatitis and paw burns, all of which refer to a type of contact dermatitis on the footpad and toes. Before the mid-1980s, chicken paws were of little value and were rendered with feathers, blood and other unsalable portions. Chicken paw prices have skyrocketed because of an export demand for high quality paws, transforming this product into the third most important economic part, behind breasts and wings. However, paws are downgraded or condemned for a variety of reasons that include a condemned carcasses, plant machinery mutilations or FPD lesions. Roughly 99% of condemned paws are a result of FPD lesions. Not only is FPD a revenue loss, it is currently being used as an indicator of bird welfare in animal welfare audits. Improving foot health not only provides opportunity for increased profit from exportable chicken paws, but also ensures that the poultry industry continues to meet animal welfare standards.

Wet litter can cause ulceration of broiler foot pads. Lesions have been found to be more severe as litter moisture increases. Continuously standing on wet litter causes the footpad to soften and become more prone to damage, predisposing the bird to developing FPD. Drying out the litter and moving birds from wet litter to dry litter has been shown to reverse the severity of FPD. Litter management Litter plays an important role in moisture management. It acts as a sponge, absorbing moisture and allowing for the dilution of fecal material. Thicker bases of litter allow water retention and dissipation away from the surface where it comes into contact with birds. Litter must not only be able to absorb lots of moisture, but should also have a reasonable drying time to get rid of that moisture. Bedding material has become more expensive and, as a result, there are situations where inadequate amounts of shavings are placed in broiler houses. Litter sometimes may be spread unevenly throughout the house, being thicker in the middle than along the sides. Evenly spread out litter is critical to prevent “slicking over” of the litter along the sidewalls. Ultimately the bedding material used depends on cost and availability. Regardless of the source of bedding, when possible use materials with smaller particle sizes, as they have been shown to produce better paws. Litter management between flocks If broiler houses are cleaned out between flocks, at least three to four inches of litter is needed to handle the moisture. If on a built-up litter program, it is important E. M. Shepherd, B. D. Fairchild and C.W. Ritz Footpad dermatitis is a major factor in the loss or downgrading of edible poultry paws, but proper litter management can produce a healthier, more profitable flock.

  • 35. October 2010 | www.WATTAgNet.com 35 to remove the caked litter to allow the litter base to dry before chicks are placed. Running fans during the day will remove moisture from the litter more rapidly. Several methods are used to manage litter between flocks, such as tilling, removing cake and top-dressing and windrowing. Six commercial 40 x 500-foot broiler houses were used to evaluate how litter management in between flocks would influence the incidence of FPD. The three litter methods used were cake removal, complete cleanout and windrowing. Each treatment was applied to two houses. The results indicated that the windrowed houses produced more Grade A and B paws in the processing plant than did caked and cleaned-out houses (see Figure 3). Drinker management Proper drinker line management according to manufacturer’s guidelines can prevent excessive moisture from being added to the litter. Drinkers that are too low or have Paw scores in each litter depth treatment at 42 days of age. Paw grades at 56 days of age (A, B, C) with three different treatments between flocks. Figure 2.

  • 36. www.WATTAgNet.com | October 2010 36 the water pressure set too high tend to result in wetter floors. Water lines that may have a biofilm or other particulates can result in leaky nipples, which will also increase litter moisture. Regular flushing and sanitizing the drinker system will reduce water leakage. This will keep litter drier and improve its quality, subsequently resulting in better paw quality. Managing the moisture underneath the water and feed lines is essential becuase the birds spend the majority of their time in this area. Keeping litter dry in this area can reduce problems not only from FPD but also from hock and breast burns. Ventilation If relative humidity (RH) is not currently being monitored in broiler houses, it should be used as a house management tool. A main objective of minimum ventilation is to control house moisture, with the goal being to keep the RH between 50% and 70%. More incidences of FPD and hock lesions have been observed in cold weather compared to warm weather and have a high correlation with relative humidity in the broiler house. These seasonal effects are related to the increased relative humidity in broiler houses that are because of reduced ventilation during cold weather. Circulation fans and attic inlets have been proven to promote dry floors in cold weather. Bird density The sudden onset of wet litter associated with higher bird densities in one area of a house compared to another is considered to have a large influence on the development of FPD. Litter conditions deteriorate as moisture increases with increased stocking density. As stocking density increases, water consumption per bird increases. As birds drink more water, their feces become watery and contributes to overall litter moisture. One way to combat this is to properly use migration fences, even in cold weather months. Migration fences put in place after birds are released to the entire house from partial house brooding will ensure they are evenly spaced out, allowing for better litter management and temperature regulation. One simple, cost effective way to monitor bird density is to add additional water meters. Water meters for the front, middle and back of the house can indicate bird densities by simply looking at daily water consumption. Higher consumption in one end of the house means that there are more birds than in the other sections. Make sure to have a dry litter base of at least three inches at the start of the flock to provide an adequate “sponge” to handle the moisture. Proper housing and equipment management will allow for decreased RH inside the house and drier litter.
