Stahl, Susan Schafers and Brad Fournier. They will no doubt provide additional insight to our meetings. Also, thanks to Dr. Iwona Pawlina, Executive Director of the PRC, and researchers and staff at the PRC for their efforts throughout the year and for their hospitality whenever we met. The next couple of years will no doubt provide many challenges to the PRC. Economic uncertainty, personnel changes, a new funding agreement, and shifting industry priorities will all impact us. By continuing to work closely with our partners, the PRC will continue to thrive. In 2009, the Poultry Research Centre (PRC) program underwent an external review by an international review committee. The PRC Advisory Board of Directors received, reviewed, and initiated a number of the recommendations contained in the committee’s report to ensure that the PRC is on track to achieving its goals.

Don Copeland, Chair

The PRC team, in addition to conducting world class research, has attracted a very talented and enthusiastic group of graduate students. Excellence in teaching is one of the main goals of the PRC, and it is always rewarding to see and hear the presentations from these students and to note their progress during their time with us. The quality of the PRC team is reflected in the many provincial, national, and international awards given to PRC members for their accomplishments in teaching and research. This year, the PRC saw the departure of Dr. Gaylene Fasenko. Dr. Fasenko has accepted a faculty position with the Department of Animal & Range Sciences at New Mexico State University. We appreciate the work that Gaylene has done at the PRC, especially in developing the research hatchery. We wish her well in her new endeavours. This year also saw the departure of three of our original Board members: Darcy Fitzgerald, Deborah Whale and Steve Howe. They were all very involved Board members who brought their considerable talents and enthusiasm to every meeting. Their contributions will definitely be missed. On behalf of the Board, I want to thank them for their hard work. I would also like to welcome our new Board members: Wes Johnson, Dave

In 2009-2010, the PRC attracted $2.7 million for research and conducted 39 research projects. The value-added research team has three new patents for innovative technologies in high-value egg and poultry meat product development. Our researchers and students delivered 115 presentations at 45 scientific and industry meetings. The team also published 22 research papers in refereed journals, delivered 27 presentations at national and international conferences and participated in many technology transfer events organized by the PRC to share what they have learned with the industry. Henry Ford once said that “Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.” In 1986, the UofA, Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development (ARD) and the poultry industry came together and formed a partnership - The Poultry Research Centre (PRC). The PRC partnership shares a common vision for the Centre: “Excellence in research and learning through partnerships with the entire value chain to advance the development of value-added poultry products and production practices”. For almost 25 years, the PRC has grown stronger with all its partners committing resources in support of the Centre and becoming directly involved in the Centre’s governance. We are working together and success follows. There are many benefits to this collaborative approach. Together as the PRC partnership, we can accomplish more than each of us can separately. The Centre successfully leverages research funds, conducts larger and more complex research and prepares well-rounded students for future employment. The sharing of facilities and expertise between the UofA and ARD researchers allows the Centre to conduct research in an efficient manner and maintaining close communication with industry keeps its research activities relevant to industry needs.

In addition to these more traditional ways of sharing knowledge and promoting poultry research, the PRC developed an innovative way to further engage students, the industry and the public through edutainment. The PRC researchers, students and staff use humour, songs and skits to share knowledge and their passion for poultry research and the industry they support. There are also benefits of this partnership to the University. Financial support from the industry and the funders has allowed the University of Alberta to attract new scientific expertise in the value-added research area and to establish state-of–the–art facilities. Moreover, the unique learning environment at the PRC attracts growing numbers of students and young scientists who not only have the opportunity to acquire scientific knowledge and professional expertise, but also to gain a better understanding of the poultry industry and to interact with potential future employers throughout their studies. The number of graduate students, Post Doctoral Fellows and Research Associates has doubled over the past 3 years and the team is now training 47 graduate students and 14 junior scientists. Our graduates find employment in academia, industry and government. You can learn more about our efforts in research, learning and technology transfer in our Annual Report.


I would like to thank the researchers, students and staff at the Poultry Research Centre for their contributions to our successes. I would also like to thank our Advisory Board of Directors for their guidance and commitment to the PRC.

Thank you very much to our partners for their support.

This Year’s Highlights Preservation of Poultry Genetic Diversity in Support of Sustainable Agriculture in Canada Four undergraduate students in Animal Science 479, Kelly Brouwer, Alysha Dance, Isabel Duke and Christopher Fodor, examined the issue of sustainability of rare poultry breeds at the Poultry Research Centre (PRC). Broiler genetic selection has changed the broiler bird over the past 50 years. It is estimated that 50% of the genetic diversity originally present in commercial flocks has been lost. There is concern that certain characteristics as well as opportunities for the industry to respond to future challenges could be lost. The PRC is home to nine heritage poultry breeds. The birds are used for research and for educational purposes. The fertilized eggs from these breeds are sold to bird fanciers or other academic institutions. The remaining eggs are sold to an Alberta egg processor. The Centre is looking for creative ways to make the flocks more sustainable. The students visited a local Farmers’ Market and interviewed consumers to determine public attitudes towards the preservation of genetic diversity in poultry as well as to understand consumers’ willingness to pay for eggs from these breeds. They developed scenarios of how additional income could be generated to sustain the PRC’s heritage breeds and presented their findings during an Undergraduate Research Symposium on April 8, 2010, to an audience of 50 people from industry, academia and the public.

Dr. Wu “Fries“ Public Opinion About the Egg The egg was once labeled a potential risky contributor to the onset and development of cardiovascular diseases. New research by Dr. Jianping Wu and Mr. Kaustav Majumder provided evidence that eggs are an excellent source of health-promoting components. The researchers reported that proteins in fried and boiled eggs can be converted by enzymes in the stomach and small intestine to produce peptides (protein fragments) with functionalities that could improve blood flow and blood pressure. The researchers noted that the effects are specific to the proteins in eggs and that effect of the lipid content in eggs was not considered. Dr. Wu will continue his research to further understand the process through in vivo studies using animal models.

This research is supported by Alberta Egg Producers, Egg Farmers of Canada and the Agriculture and Food Council CAAP program. For more information, contact Dr. Jianping Wu at jianping.wu@ualberta.ca

The PRC’s Biosecurity is for the Birds The PRC is striving to maintain a strong biosecurity program at the PRC to protect industry and public investment in research flocks and rare genetic resources. Ms. Adrienne Bodnarchuk has been assisting the PRC with the transition to biosecurity practices currently adopted by the poultry industry in Alberta.

Adrienne has also joined the PRC academics and poultry veterinarian, Dr. Tom Inglis, in promoting biosecurity principles and best practices among undergraduate students and graduate students from the UofA and from the Veterinary College in Calgary. In total, 120 students in Animal Science courses benefited from the training. Adrienne has also provided three training session for the PRC facility users and technical staff. Participants increased their awareness of the challenges facing the industry in maintaining consumer confidence in the Canadian safe food supply. This project was supported by the Alberta Livestock and Meat Agency and the PRC industry fund for extension activities.

“Cluck” – A Rare Glimpse Behind the Poultry Barn Door After Dark On February 23, 2010, the Poultry Research Centre “Cluck” edutainment team gave us a rare glimpse into the mysteries of the poultry world. Wearing their evening chicken attire and singing along to popular “chicken tunes”, the team of 18 researchers, students and staff from the Poultry Research Centre at the University of Alberta entertained our poultry industry and government partners at the Alberta Poultry Industry Annual General Meeting banquet. They shared their enthusiasm and passion for our poultry industry on the Red Deer Capri Centre stage. For more information or to sing along, visit

Evening of Learning and Sharing (June 2, 2009) The researchers and students at the PRC are passionate about their studies and about sharing the results of their work with the industry, government professionals and peers. On June 2nd, 2009 the PRC’s young scientists presented their research during an Evening of Learning and Sharing as part of the PRC’s Annual General Meeting. The Proceedings from this event are available on the PRC website at www. poultryresearchcentre.ca

Interestingly, a deviation of five degrees above or below the recommended rearing temperatures did not affect growth or yield. However, broilers exposed to environmental temperatures that were ten degrees above the recommended temperatures had reduced growth and yield. This study has shown that even at recommended temperatures broilers have higher maintenance feed requirements to maintain their core body temperatures.

Is it warm in here? Environmental temperature affects efficiency.

Antibiotic free production…is it for everyone? ZUIDHOF- Consumers are continuing to show interest in chicken products that have been reared without antibiotics. This growing trend has led to a great deal of research into how to most effectively achieve good, efficient, disease free broiler growth. Dr. Zuidhof’s research group has recently completed a study to understand the implications of reducing the prophylactic

Meat and Egg Products In short, it’s a way to cook food without heating it. By so doing nutrients that normally are damaged by the heating process are preserved. High pressure processing (HPP) in combination with moderate heat treatments helps to WU- The Canadian Food Inspection Agency list eggs as one inactivate microorganisms which extends the shelf-life of of the nine most common food allergens. Eggs can be the product. Dr. Betti’s research team is studying the found in many products including mayonnaise, cake mixes effects of high-pressure processing (HPP) on chicken meat and pasta. This presents challenges for people with egg proteins. This research is aimed at developing valueallergies who must avoid eating any products containing added products with less salt and no phosphates while eggs.

Increasing the use of eggs by decreasing allergenicity

Packing more health benefits into an egg

Increasing the value of “Low Value” meat BETTI- Due to the low quality and yield of the meat from broiler breeders and spent layers, they are regarded as ‘Low Value’ meat, and there is little demand for them in food processing. Dr. Betti’s research team has identified processing methods to recover proteins and improve the quality of products from mechanically separated poultry meat and spent hens. These new techniques have resulted in a high yield (above 65%) of protein with good functional and textural properties. Dr. Betti believes that by improving the quality of these products, utilization of low value poultry meat will increase.

New processes leading to new products BETTI – High Pressure Processing is an emerging technology that uses high hydrostatic pressure rather than heat to sanitize food.

RENEMA- Enriching eggs with omega 3 polyunsaturated fats is not new but understanding the science behind egg enrichment can provide economic benefit to producers. Dr. Renema’s research group investigated ways to improve the transfer of omega 3 polyunsaturated fats from the feed that a hen eats into the egg that she produces. Their research focused on the impact of diet and the hen’s gut physiology on the hen’s ability to transfer nutrients. Results showed that hen’s ability to efficiently enrich an egg varies between hens and is affected by the amount and type of omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids provided in the diet; suggesting that there are advantages to specific forms of enrichment ingredients in the hen diet (extruded vs. ground flax forms, for example).


Meat and Egg Products (cont.) Eggs…source of many essential nutrients RENEMA- Choline is an essential nutrient and plays and important role in cell membrane structure and chemical signaling in cells. Choline in the human diet comes from a variety of sources. However, one of the purest and certainly the most bioavailable source is the egg. Jonathan Curtis, Catherine Field and Rob Renema have been working together in a study exploring the possibilty of supplying choline from chicken eggs as an additive to the pregnancy and lactation diet. Laboratory analysis methods have been developed and the methods for bulk extraction are being worked on. Dr. Renema’s group are surveying the impact of breed and age of hens on egg choline levels, as well as working on ways to cost- effectively increase choline enrichment in the egg through the hen diet. There are biological limitations to how much choline content can be increased in the egg.

Understanding the Consumer Are you going to eat that?

Paying more for what they want

KORVER-“Black Bone” defect has been reported by chicken processors around the world and has led to concern regarding whether this problem influences consumer purchasing decisions, particularly in regions where dark meat (drums and thighs) are not the preferred chicken meat. Dr. Korver is leading a team to understand consumer attitudes toward this condition and to identify strategies to reduce it through broiler nutrition and management as well as product handling and packaging. The research has revealed that this condition is caused by leakage of marrow from the marrow cavity of the bone, thereby staining the meat. Consumer surveys indicated that consumers who normally purchase drums and thighs did not seem to be concerned by “black bone.” Further surveys are planned to determine if consumers that do not purchase dark meat do so because of a bias towards this condition.

Goddard-The development of new value added products is guided by consumer desires and willingness to pay for the new product attributes. PRC researchers have found that consumers considered unprocessed chicken products as being convenient and healthy whereas traditional processed products such as chicken nuggets were not viewed as positively due to undesirable composition, processing and quality concerns. Fifty percent of survey respondents indicated that they were willing to pay up to 30% more for value-added chicken products over the price of a conventional one.
