Competitive economic conditions mean that Australian egg producers seek ways to reduce the cost of egg production.Current housing design has proven unable to provide the economically optimum temperatures required by layers during winter and summer.
Development of Molecular Tests for Serovar-Specific Identification and Typing of Haemophilus paragallinarum
Haemophilus paragallinarum is the causative agent of infectious coryza, an upper respiratory tract disease of chickens characterised by relatively mild clinical signs.As there have been few studies on methods to type isolates of H.
Prevalence, genetic relationships and pathogenicity of intestinal spirochaetes infecting Australian poultry
This research aimed to: determine whether fastidious anaerobic intestinal spirochaetal bacteria, or a similar bacteria, was present in Australia; to isolate and characterise this bacteria; and to test the pathogenic potential of the disease.
This study examines whether wheat can be substituted by triticale, a generally cheaper cereal grain, without prejudice to performance of the flock or egg quality.
Respiratory diseases are a major cause of economic losses to the Australian chicken meat and egg industries.This study reports on the development of a quick new diagnostic process to identify two strains of respiratory disease.
This project provided a unique, systematic study of the nutritional value of including egg yolk in the weaning diet of breast and formula fed infants in order to address current nutritional issues pertinent to all infants.
The project was initiated in response to reports in 1995 that a more severe strain of IBDV was presenting in Victoria and NSW.
The overall aim of this research project was to provide producers and feed formulators with clear guidelines on the economics of using whole and de-hulled lupins and the need for inclusion of enzymes in layer diets containing lupins.
This study shows that the low calcium supplementation produces sustained improvements in post-moult performance. .
Distribution and expression of the 14 kDa fimbrial gene among Salmonella Enteritidis isolates and potential as diagnostic and epidemiological tools
This 12-month study (1993-1994) aimed to capitalise on prior observations and develop a novel strategy for rapid identification of Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis in egg and egg products based on detection of DNA sequences encoding SEF14.

This project is funded by Commonwealth grant funds. The output of this project will be a traceability solution for the industry.
The aim of this project was to consolidate available agronomic information and provide an up-to-date resource for free range egg farmers on what and how to plant on the range. To complete this project the researcher integrated existing research on the topic, as well as learnings from 5 'case study farms' that the researcher worked with throughout the project.
This report provides a support tool for Australian egg producers to determine biosecurity risks on-farm. As well as assisting Egg producers in understanding what constitutes a risk and why, the report offers potential management strategies to decrease on-farm risks to biosecurity.
