N o one in the poultry industry rests on their laurels in January – the year kicks off with the biggest interna- tional meat processing and production expo around, Atlanta's enormous IPPE. This issue of Poultry Digital picks out just ten activi- ties from the thousands available over the three-day event, covering everything from seminars on sustainability to chili cooking competitions (page 8). Elsewhere in the issue we've taken a global perspective on some of the opportunities and challenges facing poultry producers in 2018; from the plight of ostrich farmers in Zimbabwe (page 18) to the impact of 2017's meat inspection scandal on the Brazilian meat export industry (page 22). Elsewhere there's an honest look at the impact of welfare legislation on egg producers from Chad Gregory at the International Egg Commission (page 16), and experts weighing in on the main factors at play in the US industry in the year ahead (page 26). That's before a snapshot of the Japanese quail, an investigation into the tricky Woody Breast condition (page 12), and our regular slot on backyard poultry where Mike Colley answers questions on moulting; intro- ducing new birds to the flock; and impacted crops (page 30).
