News Broilers

Two volatile organic compounds appear to be positively correlated with disease incidence.

Dr. Ravi Kulkarni, assistant professor at North Carolina State University, and colleagues recently completed a research project aimed at identifying biological indicators during necrotic enteritis (NE) development that may help initiate prompt disease control measures.

Findings revealed two specific volatile organic compounds which appear to be positively correlated with the incidence of NE in broiler chickens.

These results could be applied to the development of a method suitable for identifying rapid and reliable NE detection precision tech-tools.
