Asian workshops on bacteria control in poultry

“Maintaining the intestinal integrity and improving broiler and breeder performance through effective control of Salmonella and other Enterobacteria” is the title of a workshop to be held in Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines.

How to address the challenges caused by pathogenic bacteria in poultry production? What are their consequences at the farm level and for the consumer? How to identify, analyse, and deal with those Enterobacteria?
 
All those questions will be answered at meetings in Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines, in June 2010. The objective of the different presentations is to focus on the practical aspects of the diseases, and to discuss solutions that can be implemented on the affected farms.
 
The meetings are scheduled to take place, as follows:
  • Thailand - Tuesday June 15 at Saraburi Inn in Saraburi province,
  • Philippines - Friday June 18 at Crown Plaza Hotel in Ortigas and
  • Indonesia - Tuesday June 22 at Novotel Hotel - Mangga Dua – Jakarta.
Speakers
Nigel Horrox will focus his presentation on salmonella and other enteric pathogens. In so doing he will consider testing and sampling, legislation, salmonella surveys and the importance of mill, transportation and farm biosecurity.
 
He will consider the idiosyncrasies of test results and put salmonella status into a realistic commercial context.
 
Mathieu Cortyl will discuss the different strategies that can be employed at the farm and feed mill level to control salmonella and other enteric pathogens.
 
He will focus his talk on the solutions (technologies and additives) available to ensure feed and water are not carriers of pathogens, as well as strategies to prevent the spreading of those pathogenic bacteria in the digestive tract of the birds.
 
Local speakers will discuss about the situation in their respective countries. They are:
  • Dr Jiroj Sasipreeyajan from Chulalongkorn University (Thailand),
  • Dr Mildred Patilla from University of the Philippines Los Baños (Philippines), and
  • Prof. Drh. Charles Rangga Tabbu, from Gadjah Mada University in Yogyakarta (Indonesia).
