new way for poultry producers to tackle red mite

Poultry producers are facing a particularly high risk of red mite infestation this spring, with warm weather and the need to house birds causing outbreaks across the country.“The worry of avian influenza is at the forefront of everyone’s mind right now – but with free-range birdshaving to be housed as a result, the reality is that red mite populations are exploding,” explains Alison Colville-Hyde, field services manager at St David’s Poultry Team. “Red mite can be debilitating to hens and irritating to egg collectors, as well as causing economic loss through egg downgrades and increasing the risk of disease transfer.”The forced housing of birds due to avian influenza, combined with the warm weather, favours the red mite’s life cycle, adds Ms Colville-Hyde. “Fortunately, we now have a new p

Credit: Agricultural Research ServiceA Mississippi-based Agricultural Research Service (ARS) researcher has learned that using poultry litter as fertilizer can help cotton growers in the Southeast maximize profits.
Poultry litter (chicken manure, spilled feed, excess feathers, and other poultry-house materials) contains nitrogen and phosphorus—both important crop nutrients. Applying poultry litter to the soil also recycles some of the tons of litter generated annually by poultry operations throughout the United States, says Haile Tewolde, an ARS agronomist at Mississippi State.While more f

Don't be fooled by the vegetarian options available at your local supermarket: new figures show that Swedes are consuming more meat than ever, causing alarm about the continued increase in the country's consumption.
According to the new report from Sweden's Board of Agriculture (Jordbruksverket), Swedes consumed 87.7kg of meat per person in 2016, an increase of half a kilo per person compared to 2015.
That doesn't necessarily mean Swedes ate half a kilo more compared to the previous year however, as not all parts of the carcass (like the bones) are eaten.
Once that factor is taken into account, it's calculated that Swedes ate around 0.25kg more meat per person in 2016, weighing
