Dr. A.M. Manschadi
“White Gold” and Aral Sea disaster“
Dr. A.M. Manschadi and co-workers, Center for Development Research (ZEF), University of Bonn, Germany, describe a project focused on efficient use of water resources. In the article “White Gold” and Aral Sea disaster – Towards more efficient use of water resources in the Khorezm region, Uzbekistan”, the authors analyze the effects of irrigating cotton fields and related factors contributing to one of the world’s most dramatic losses of water resources. Possible actions to minimize further deterioration are identified. Political support and incentives to use resources more sustainably are required to benefit fully from the recommendations.

Prof. Joachim von Braun
The role of livestock production for a growing world population
In his key note address at the World Congress on Genetics Applied to Animal Production, held in Leipzig, Germany, in early August, Prof. Joachim von Braun, University of Bonn, reviewed “The role of livestock production for a growing world population”. The rapidly increasing demand for animal products needs a strategy for the global livestock economy to serve world food security, applying innovative production technology adapted to changing consumer behavior, and a big push to enhance overall efficiency of livestock production.

European Master in Animal Breeding and Genetics
The “big push” demanded by Prof. von Braun requires that young professionals get the best possible education. At the European Poultry Conference in Tours, France, a special session was dedicated to educational opportunities. Prof. Johan van Arendonk et al., Wageningen University, The Netherlands, called attention to a new program designed to acquire a “European Master in Animal Breeding and Genetics”, which may also be of interest to some of our readers.

Selection of laying hens for improved consistency of excreta
In their attempts to improve the efficiency of poultry production, primary breeders keep looking beyond simple input-output relations. Can emissions from poultry houses be reduced by genetic selection? This question was investigated in a study by Dr. Wiebke Icken and Prof. Rudolf Preisinger, Lohmann Tierzucht: “Selection of laying hens for improved consistency of excreta”. The simple technique used requires single cage management to collect records from large numbers of fully pedigreed hens. The genetic parameters are encouraging.

Development of a third generation vaccine
Vaccination of chickens against Salmonella Enteritidis and S. Typhimurium has been used in Germany and other countries for several years and is considered as a major contribution to Biosecurity and food safety. In the paper by Dr. Nathalie Desloges et al., Lohmann Animal Health, “Development of a third generation vaccine to prevent Salmonella infections in commercial poultry flocks” the authors report test results with a new combined vaccine, which appears to be safe and efficacious after challenge infection with virulent strains of both serovars.

Epidemiological relationship between Salmonella Infantis isolates
Unfortunately the risks of Salmonella infections are not limited to the two serovars S. Enteritidis and S. Typhimurium. Next on the list is S. Infantis, as explained in the paper by co-authors Dr. Tatjana Miller et al. from three German Research Centers: “Epidemiological relationship between S. Infantis isolates of human and broiler origin”. The authors suggest that successful control of S. Enteritidis and S. Typhimurium may lead to an epidemic increase of S. Infantis in broiler populations and advocate monitoring by routine application of a new phage typing scheme.

Present status of the world goat populations and their productivity
The “Present status of the world goat populations and their productivity” is reviewed in the final paper by Prof. Mahmoud Abdel Aziz, King Faisal University, Al-Ahsa, Saudi Arabia. The significant increase of the global goat population reflects developments mainly in China and Africa, where goats play an important role for the livelihood of the rural population. Genetic programs to improve meat and milk yield are discussed in the context of adaptation to marginal environmental conditions.

100 Years Friedrich-Loeffler-Institut
The reorganization of Federal Animal Research in Germany reinforces the focus on consumer protection and food safety. In the context of consumer demand for safe food from healthy animals, vaccination against viral diseases is of special interest. So it seemed logical to place the headquarters of all German Federal Animal Research Institutes in Riems, where Friedrich Loeffler and his colleague Paul Frosch became famous as founding fathers of virology. Prof. Dr. Dr. h. c. Thomas Mettenleiter, Prof. Dr. Timm Harder and Elke Reinking briefly report from the centennial under the title “100 Years Friedrich-Loeffler-Institut” and list recent publications on HPAI based on research activities of the FLI in Riems.
