Prof. Songül Yalçin
Poultry Eggs and Child Health - a Review
Poultry Eggs and Child Health - a Review is based on a paper Prof. Songül Yalçin presented in 2011 at the EggMeat Symposium in Leipzig, Germany, and was updated with her co-author Prof. Suzan Yalçin for this issue. The authors have accumulated an impressive number of references, details of which may be obtained from the authors. The information based on medical literature confirms that eggs contain many nutrients which are essential for balanced nutrition of pregnant mothers, newborn babies and children through school age.

Dr. Dagmar Kapell
Selection for improved leg health in purebred broiler lines
a review by Dr. Dagmar Kapell, member of the Aviagen R&D Team. Sound legs have been on the agenda of primary breeders for many years. The author describes how the effectiveness of selection has been systematically improved. Broad breeding goals and appropriate selection indices assure simultaneous progress in all important traits, despite negative genetic correlations. Selection in a highly bio-secure environment was shown to be effective also at the commercial level in the global broiler industry.

Focus on optimal starting conditions for day-old chicks
by Hagen Müller. Broiler growers in Germany and other countries have learned over the years to keep up with genetic changes in growth potential and feed efficiency, while consumers are getting more concerned about production conditions and drug residues. In this paper the author pinpoints some of the mistakes encountered in practice and shows how optimal chick management can improve performance, minimize treatments and regain consumer support.

Robert Schulte-Drüggelte, Dr. Hans-Heinrich Thiele
Determining the optimum replacement schedule for commercial layers: does molting pay off?
Using general mathematical techniques described by Kühne and Flock 25 years ago, the authors Robert Schulte-Drüggelte und Dr. Hans-Heinrich Thiele, members of the “Global Competence Team” of Lohmann Tierzucht, review the effect of length of laying period on annual egg income under current conditions of production. Calculations based on production standards for LSL Lite hens in North America and U.S. prices for pullets, feed and eggs show an advantage of about 1 U.S. $ per hen place per year for single cycle flocks kept to 85 weeks compared to molting and a second cycle to 109 weeks of age.

Longevity of high producing dairy cows: a case study
by Prof. Holger Martens, Physiologist at the Free University Berlin, who has developed a special interest in the conflict between maximum milk yield and longevity in dairy cattle breeding. With his co-author Christian Bange, he reports observations from a family farm in Northern Germany with a herd of 145 German Holstein cows as an example that negative correlations can be overcome successfully – if management is focused on health and wellbeing of the herd and pays more attention to lifetime rather than first lactation milk yield.

Disinfection in poultry medicine – aims and means
Prof. Dr. med.vet. Dr. h.c. Erhard F. Kaleta worked all his life with poultry and just published a book in two volumes, describing the history of Poultry Medicine at the University of Gießen (ISBN: 978-3-8359-5994-1) and Research on Poultry Diseases (ISBN: 978-3-8359-5995-8), which are recommended for German speaking readers. The paper DISINFECTION IN POULTRY MEDICINE – AIMS AND MEANS should be of general interest for people working with poultry.
