A survey of carcass condemnation at a poultry abattoir and its application to disease management



A survey of carcass condemnation at a poultry abattoir and its application to disease management



Canadian Veterinary Journal 28(1-2): 53-56



During a five year period slaughter records were maintained on flocks of broiler chickens sent to a federally-inspected abattoir in new Brunswick [Canada]. These records, including data regarding condemnation of both carcasses and portions of broilers, were maintained at the level of the individual producer. Annual meetings and ad hoc consultations with producers, a veterinary poultry specialist, and support groups in the poultry industry (feed mills, breeders, etc.) were used to relay to the various interested parties, information relating to disease conditions. Following the implementation of this system, condemnation rates dropped by one full percentage point during the first three years, with a slight increase observed during the last two years of the study. At the end of the survey, condemnation rates were 20% less than those of the national average.
