    • Lack of scientific information on risks associated with balut production and marketing

      Status: Analysis and summarization

      Sponsor/Researcher: Ken Falk/ Drs. Cheng and Byrne


    Tinamou salvage l.jpg

    Tinamou Salvage

    Objective:

    • To maintain the tinamou line for commercial development

      Rationale:

    • The unique Tinamou flock developed by UBC has commercially attractive production attributes– worth salvaging

      Status:

    • Tinamou is commercially placed and undergoing flock expansion in preparation for a selection program


    Taiwan conference l.jpg

    Taiwan Conference

    Objective:

    • To transfer information on AI in wild birds to BC

    • To build contacts and seek opportunities for joint projects

      Rationale:

    • H5 has been identified in wild birds in world fly ways. Wanted information on risks to domestic fowl

    • Opportunities for joint research projects with Asia

      Status: Drs. Robinson and Cheng attended

      Presentation of salient concepts re: AI surveillance


    Alternative housing for layers l.jpg

    Alternative Housing for Layers

    Objective:

    • To determine the effect of housing systems on production and welfare of hen strains

      Rationale:

    • To exploit growing domestic and export markets for eggs from less intensive systems

    • To respond to growing public concerns re: caged egg housing

      Status:

    • Planning stage/ Alta Funding Consortium, PIC, Alta Farm Animal Care and Alta Egg Board

      Sponsors/Researchers:

    • Dr. Silversides, Dr. Cheng, John Church, Nigel Cook, John Feddes, Doug Korver


    Robotic squab feeder l.jpg

    Robotic Squab Feeder

    Objective:

    • To develop a robotic squab feeder for improved production efficiency through faster recycling, more eggs, lower costs and improved disease control

      Rationale:

    • Pigeons produce 8-14 squab per year if young are raised by parent. If the young are removed from the parents and brooded artificially, production could be increased to 35 to 40 squab per year

      Status: Camera setup with computerized direct DVD recording

      Sponsor/Researcher: George Pang/Dr. K. Cheng


    Emu oil l.jpg

    Emu oil

    Objective:

    • To determine if the antioxidant and anti inflammatory properties of emu oil slow down atherosclerosis onset
