Egg Innovations and Strategies for Improvements examines the production of eggs from their development to human consumption. Chapters also address consumer acceptance, quality control, regulatory aspects, cost and risk analyses, and research trends. Eggs are a rich source of macro- and micronutrients which are consumed not only by themselves, but also within the matrix of food products, such as pastas, cakes, and pastries. A wholesome, versatile food with a balanced array of essential nutrients, eggs are a stable of the human diet. Emerging strategies entail improvements to the composition of eggs via fortification or biological enrichment of hen's feed with polyunsaturated fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins, or minerals. Conversely, eggs can be a source of food-borne disease or pollutants that can have effects on not only human health, but also egg production and commercial viability. Written by an international team of experts, the book presents a unique overview of the biology and science of egg production, nutrient profiling, disease, and modes for increasing their production and quality. Designed for poultry and food scientists, technologists, microbiologists, and workers in public health and the food and egg industries, the book is valuable as an industrial reference and as a resource in academic libraries. Focuses on the production and food science aspects of eggs Includes a broad range of microbial contaminants, their risks, and prevention, as well as non-microbial contaminant risks Presents analytical techniques for practical application

Model Code of Practice for the Welfare of Animals

Domestic Poultry

Animal welfare considerations are becoming increasingly important for the keeping and farming of animals, both in Australia and internationally. Practices that may have once been deemed acceptable are now being reassessed in light of new knowledge and changing attitudes. The minimum standards outlined in this Code are intended to help people involved in the care and management of poultry to adopt standards of husbandry that are acceptable. Special requirements for various species are given in the appendices. This Code of Practice is intended as a guide for people responsible for the welfare and husbandry of domestic poultry. It recognizes that the basic requirement for welfare of poultry is a husbandry system appropriate to their physiological and behavioral needs. The Code emphasizes that--whatever the form of husbandry--managers, employees and all others responsible for the day-to-day needs of domestic poultry have a responsibility to care for poultry under their control.

Comparative Analysis Of Amo Breed Of Broiler Birds Fed With Commercial And Self Formulated Feed

Scientific Study from the year 2015 in the subject Agrarian Studies, , language: English, abstract: This study is aimed at comparing the effect of commercial and formulated feed on Amo breed of broilers. A comparative analysis of commercial and formulated feed on Amo breed of broiler was carried out. The term “poultry” used in agriculture generally refers to all domesticated birds kept for eggs or meat production. These include chickens, (domesticated fowl) turkey, ducks, geese, pigeons, guinea fowl and other birds. The most common of all these in Nigeria is the domestic fowl. Sometime the term “poultry” is considered synonymous with chickens (Igbokwe 2010). The term poultry is a broad classification covering the species of all domesticated birds that are raised primarily for the production of meat and eggs for human consumption. The term applies to chickens, turkeys, ducks, swans, geese, guinea fowl and other birds. However, among all these food producing birds, chickens are probably more than all the other birds and found throughout the world, (Feetham 1990). Poultry production is one of the most important agricultural business practiced in Nigeria. But one of the challenges posed on the production of poultry is that the feed are mostly derived from crops such as maize, sorghum, and other grain crops. As a consequence, feed ingredients need to be acquired from distant supply area and may not be hundred percent (100%) sufficient in nutrients content and also very expensive (Nyoupayou 1990). Researches have been undertaken since the 1930s on ways to improve feeds efficiency in broiler birds’ production. Comparative trials have been conducted on the use of commercially formulated feeds and the locally produced ones to find out the most efficient form of feed that yields high growth rate and reduce production costs. (Mc Donald, 1987).
