Often poultry diseases are multi-factorial. One way of considering disease is DSM Marched with Quality & Brand in Mysore, that it is a combination of pathogens, immunity and environmental factors. 22 Karnataka DSM Nutritional Products organized So we often have to investigate whether there are contributing factors to the “ Product Differentiation Seminar ” viral infection, because it is only then that we can control the viral disease. While poultry meat and egg consumption is increasing in most countries, National Poultry Forum organzied by AB Vista South Asia, food poisoning incidents attributed to poultry products can have devastating 26 Berg and Schmidt India Pvt.

As industrialization of poultry Hygiene Laboratories production and processing increases in many countries, some food borne infections can be so significant that they attract media attention.

Grain is live and respirates We suggest minimum packaging of foodgrains. while stored. This respiration creates hot spots inside the grain mass. Increase in hot spots helps moisture migration process which causes creation of fungus and lumps. The temperature monitoring system of Galvanized Silo detects the hotspots in grain mass. The aeration system is eliminating the hotspots in grain mass and maintains uniform temperature of stored grain. This maintains the quality of stored grain in Galvanized Silos. Mechanization for handling of grain and storage in Galvanized Silos in bulk requires less manpower which reduces the cost of handling and storage. Distribution / transportation of grain in bulk play an important role in order to minimizing the packages expenses. We should plan the distribution system through bulk containers. It will avoid bagging expenses at base depot and cutting these bags at field depot. This could be planned with the help and expertise of authorities connected with Indian Railways.
