2 ThePoultrySite Digital March 2015 Welcome.Editors Note ThePoultrySite Digital March 2015 Welcome to this issue of ThePoultrySite Digital with its focus on 'Feeding and Nutrition'. Feeding and nutrition formed a key focus for the new research presented at the International Poultry Scientific Forum in Atlanta, Georgia, US, earlier this year. We report on the potential of a selection of unconventional feed ingredients – some new to poultry feeding and other new forms of familiar feedstuffs, including new varieties of sorghum and soybeans, a bioenergy by-product and a fly meal. Based on a recently published review, our second feature offers some suggestions for nutrition and management changes to help poultry overcome problems associated with heat stress. Changing topic, a leading industry analyst looks at the trends in chicken egg production in the Americas, a region that accounts for around 20 per cent of global production. And finally, we have a report on an investigation in the United States into alternative feeding systems, parasite control and pasture enrichment for free-range poultry combined with pasture, cattle and agro-forestry systems.
