Summary of Workshop

Poultry Infections and Their Control
  • Norman J. Stern

A thorough understanding of the reservoirs for Campylobacter involved in its colonisation during poultry production will be required to identify potential control points. After these are identified, strategies to limit or cut off such routes which lead to colonisation can be studied for potential interventions. To these ends, an improved detection and tracking scheme needs to be created, agreed upon, and implemented by the agricultural scientific community. The following observations were offered through submitted abstracts and the workshop contributors.
