Balanced Breeding of Turkeys for Health and Welfare Traits
Mr. Magnus Swalander, Director of Global Genetics, Aviagen Turkeys, recently reviewed the breeding program of his company at the 6th Symposium of Working Group 10 (Turkey) of the WPSA. The Proceedings of this meeting were edited and published by Prof. Hafez, who kindly allowed us to reproduce it in this issue under the title “Balanced Breeding of Turkeys for Health and Welfare Traits”. Welfare traits have been receiving increasing attention in modern selection programs, but need to be supported by optimized management to answer concerns of welfare.

Dr. Hanfried Haring
The changing role of horses in our society
Dr. Hanfried Haring, former CEO and General Secretary of the German Equestrian Federation and President European Equestrian Federation, provides insight into a different world, involving a species which is seldom used as a source of meat and lost its traditional role as draft animal in agriculture and transportation: “The changing role of horses in our society” is focused on business aspects of top sports, but the vast majority of horses is kept by amateurs who have to understand the needs of the animals to enjoy their hobby.

Prof. Dr. Rudolf Preisinger
Layer breeding in the light of future requirements
Primary breeders have to look beyond current demand, to anticipate and respond to changing markets. Prof. Dr. Rudolf Preisinger, managing director of Lohmann Tierzucht GmbH, shows how increasing emphasis on poultry welfare in Europe affects data recording and practical breeding, but concludes in his article “Layer breeding in the light of future requirements” that the focus will remain on efficient egg production in a growing and increasingly divers global market.

Organic egg production – how nutritionists and primary breeders can help producers to achieve better results
To meet the growing demand for “organic” eggs in Germany and other countries, egg producers have to reduce feed cost while observing the limitations for organic feed formulation. Robert Pottgüter and Dr. Matthias Schmutz, Lohmann Tierzucht GmbH, offer professional advice: “Organic egg production – how nutritionists and primary breeders can help producers to achieve better results”.

Analysis of German Random Sample Tests 2010/11 with floor management and enriched cages
Results described by Dr. Klaus Damme, Kitzingen, Mrs. Ingrid Simon, Münster, and Dietmar K. Flock, Lohmann Tierzucht, in their article “Analysis of German Random Sample Tests 2010/11 with floor management and enriched cages” suggest that the adaptability reflects genetic differences between strains, which may also be altered by selection. The LB experimental entry in these tests was in fact the new strain cross “Lohmann Brown PLUS”, developed for organic egg production.

Dr. David Cavero
Attractive Eggshell Color as a Breeding Goal
To maximize egg income over feed cost under any production conditions, eggs must have a strong and attractive shell, especially if sold as shell eggs. Geneticist Dr. David Cavero et al., Lohmann Tierzucht, review the subject of “Attractive Eggshell Color as a Breeding Goal” and present the shininess of eggs as a new candidate trait for further improvements.

Experiences with Lohmann Selected Leghorn (LSL- Lite) Layers - Part 3: Livability
Livability of laying hens in modern production systems has been improved over the years with the use of better diagnostic tools, prevention programs and management, but considerable variation remains. Donald Bell, poultry extension specialist at the University of California, reviews causes of mortality and illustrates the range of results with a single strain of layers: “Experiences with Lohmann Selected Leghorn (LSL- Lite) Layers - Part 3: Livability”.

Experiences with Lohmann Selected Leghorn (LSL- Lite) Layers - Part 4: Economic Evaluation of Flock Performance
In the final part of this series, Donald Bell uses field data from 74 LSL Lite flocks in the USA to show how a program developed at the University of California can be used to compare the profitability of different flocks in terms of an Index, which includes all major traits: “Experiences with Lohmann Selected Leghorn (LSL- Lite) Layers - Part 4: Economic Evaluation of Flock Performance”. Readers interested in using the indexing software may contact the author to get tables 4A and 4B as excel files, which should enable them to modify the input data for their own modelling.

Detoxification of aflatoxin in poultry feed: a review from experimental trials
8. Poultry nutritionists around the world are challenged to design rations for specific groups of poultry on the basis of the “needs” for maintenance, growth and egg production, taking the availability and price of components into consideration. Special attention has to be paid to the quality of components, e.g. in terms of toxic loads. Prof. Dr. Halis Oguz, Selcuk University, Konya, Turkey, updated the literature on possibilities to reduce the negative efects of aflatoxins in his paper “Detoxification of aflatoxin in poultry feed: a review from experimental trials”.
