PoultryCast update for April 10, 2009, FAPRI Report on Feedgrain Prices and Meal Planning Research with ShoptoCook

Update for April 10, 2009

Conversations with presenters at the recent Midwest Poultry Federation meeting highlight recent programs. Depop and disposal of large flocks should be part of your emergency planning procedures. Bud Malone shares his experience from multiple events this decade and will help you map your own EOP.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has launched an investigation into potentially contaminated feed products from a rendering facility in Alberta. The vast majority of the potentially contaminated feed has been identified, contained and will be disposed of. The company is working closely with the CFIA to quickly identify and dispose of all potentially contaminated feed.

Which is to say, they have forced others to pay for attributes only they demand." Read more.
