Photo by David B. Strickland

ATLANTA — The fourth week in January was recently proclaimed Poultry Week by Governor Nathan Deal of Georgia. The proclamation was in recognition of the International Poultry Expo’s continuous years of exhibiting in Atlanta, Ga., as well as in recognition of helping advance the poultry industry and contributing to the economic well-being of the State of Georgia. Deal The International Poultry Expo will have exhibited for 64 continuous years with the upcoming 2012 IPE. The International Poultry Expo ranks as the largest annual trade show at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. The Expo brings approximately 21,000 attendees to Atlanta in January each year, and the estimated economic impact of IPE for Atlanta is around $23 million annually. The proclamation was presented to Tom Hensley, president of Fieldale Farms, and John Starkey, president of the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association. USPOULTRY sponsors the International Poultry Expo every year.

NCC joins Coalition for U.S.-Russia Trade WASHINGTON — The National Chicken Council has become a member of the Coalition for U.S.-Russia Trade, a broad-based group of U.S. companies and trade associations representing all major sectors of the U.S. economy. The coalition supports stronger U.S.-Russian economic ties and, specifically, Russia’s accession to the World Trade Organization. NCC noted that for U.S. companies to benefit from Russia’s accession to the WTO, which was recently adopted, it will be necessary for Congress to lift the Jackson-Vanik amendment with respect to Russia and authorize the president to extend Permanent Normal Trade Relations to Russia. NCC and the coalition will work closely with the office of the U.S. Trade Representative, USDA and Congress to help ensure the negotiated access for the chicken industry’s products to Russia.

Welcome to the 2012 IPE/IFE By John Starkey

Special to Poultry Times

ATLANTA — The International Poultry Expo and International Feed Expo is the worldwide, premier exposition for the poultry and feed industries. Poultry and feed industry leaders from throughout the United States and around the globe gather in Atlanta each year to see the world’s largest display of equipment, supplies, and services and to stay informed on important issues affecting the industry. It is the one location Starkey where purchasing decision makers can view emerging technology and new innovations for all segments of the poultry and feed industry. The IPE/IFE is co-sponsored by the U.S.Poultry & Egg Association and the American Feed Industry Association. The 2012 Expo will be held Tuesday through Thursday, Jan. 24-26, at the Georgia World Congress Center. Although the Expo is the industry’s premier trade show, the week of the Expo will feature the most extensive schedule of education programs ever. The week of the Expo has been officially proclaimed “Poultry Week” by Gov. Nathan Deal of Georgia, with an

emphasis on educational programs rounding out the week-long event. As they have for some time, the International Poultry Scientific Forum and the Animal Agriculture Sustainability Summit will start the week off on Monday and Tuesday. These programs are followed by the Pet Food Conference on Tuesday and the Hatchery-Breeder Clinic on Tuesday and Wednesday. New for 2012 are five new educational programs: Charting the Course: An Executive Conference on the Future of the American Poultry Industry; Charting the Course: An Executive Conference on the Future of the American Egg Industry; IPE Pre-Harvest Food Safety Conference; International Rendering Symposium; and a Poultry Leaders of the Future: Managerial Basics Workshop. Both of the Charting the Course programs will be held on Wednesday, with the American egg industry portion being co-sponsored by USPOULTRY and the United Egg Producers. The IPE Pre-Harvest Food Safety Conference will be held on Wednesday and Thursday and is co-sponsored by USPOULTRY, the the North American Meat Processors Association, National Chicken Council, Auburn University and the University of Georgia. Sessions on Thursday and Friday include the International Rendering Symposium, co-sponsored by the National Renderers Association and USPOULTRY, and Poultry Leaders of the Future: Managerial Basics, a new program sponsored

by USPOULTRY. In addition, IPE’s educational offerings include collaboration with the University of Georgia on its International Poultry Short Course and Poultry Processing Spanish Course. Both courses will be held immediately after the Expo, Jan. 27-Feb. 1, and will include free admission to IPE/IFE 2012. We are pleased to again offer the Members to Atlanta (M2A) program. It waives the registration fee, through online pre-registration before Jan. 8, for member firms of USPOULTRY and AFIA engaged in the production of poultry, egg and feed products. M2A is supported through the sponsorship of elite exhibiting companies: Agranco Corp. USA, Alaso, Alltech, Aviagen, Ceva, Cobb-Vantress, Diamond V Mills, DSM, ISI-Incubator Supply, Jamesway, Marel Stork Poultry Processing, Mosaic and Pfizer Poultry Health. We are grateful to these firms for their support of M2A. The annual College Student Career Program attracts more than 300 graduating students from 25 universities throughout the nation. Industry and allied firms conduct job and internship interviews with the students during all three days of the show. It is both time and cost effective, since the companies can see so many students in one location. The program is part of USPOULTRY’s continuing effort to encourage talented young people to become the industry’s leaders of the future. We provide many amenities for your convenience. Kiosks will help locate exhibitors, products, and services. You can access the Internet at the cyber center, which will be located in the A/B-Hall connector. Free Wi-Fi will be available in the exhibit halls. Bus service is provided between the convention center and hotels in the IPE/IFE block, and we invite you to visit the International Networking Reception which will be held again at the Georgia Aquarium on Tuesday from 5:30-8 p.m. Welcome to Atlanta, and thank you for your continued support our

industry by attending the Expo. Your attendance brings exhibiting companies to the show, as they know that industry leaders and purchasing decision makers will be there to see what they have to offer. The process works for everyone and supports the industry at the same time. The funds generated from the Expo are reinvested into the industry in the form of research, education, communications and technical services. John Starkey is president of the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association with offices in Tucker, Ga.

Sparboe Farms task force reviews animal care code LITCHFIELD, Minn. — Sparboe Farms has announced that it is creating a Sustainability Task Force that is charged with reviewing all current company practices in the areas of food safety, animal care and sustainability. The task force will also develop additional best practices in those areas for all of the company’s production and processing facilities. Beth Sparboe Schnell, president and owner of Sparboe Farms, said she decided to take the additional step of creating a Sustainability Task Force “so that we can make our company better.” She also reassured consumers that “there is absolutely no food safety concern or any recall of any Sparboe Farms products. Sparboe Farms eggs and egg products are safe to eat.” During a recent press conference, Schnell addressed the Nov. 18 ABC News “20/20” segment depicting animal mistreatment at a Sparboe Farms facility and a U.S. Food & Drug Administration warning letter regarding violations of FDA regulations. “All of us at Sparboe Farms were shocked and deeply disturbed when we saw the video shot in our barns that depicted animal mistreatment,” Schnell said. “At Sparboe Farms, we expect our employees to provide the best care possible and follow our animal care code of conduct.” She added, “Acts depicted in the footage are totally unacceptable, inconsistent with our values as farmers, and violate our animal care policies and procedures.” Immediately upon learning of the video the company said that it launched a comprehensive investigation which identified four employees who were complicit in the disturbing activity, including at least one animal activist. “Because we have zero tolerance for animal abuse, the four have been terminated. A production manager also has been relieved of his duties. Our investigation is ongoing and any additional employees involved will be held accountable,” Schnell said. She pointed out the employees in question were trained on proper bird handling methods by Sparboe’s veterinarian. They signed the company’s Animal Care Code of Conduct confirming they would abide by

Dynamic & Solazyme supply biofuel to Navy WASHINGTON — Dynamic Fuels LLC, a joint venture between Tyson Foods Inc. and Syntroleum Corp., has been awarded a contract to supply the U.S. Navy with 450,000 gallons of renewable fuels. Solazyme Inc., a renewable oil and bioproducts company, will help Dynamic Fuels fulfill the contract, which the Navy and the USDA report is the single largest purchase of biofuel in government history. The contract involves supplying the Navy with 100,000 gallons of jet fuel (Hydro-treated Renewable JP-5 or HRJ-5) and 350,000 gallons of marine distillate fuel (Hydro-Treated Renewable F-76 or HRD-76). The fuel will be used as part of the Navy’s efforts to develop a “Green Strike Group” composed of vessels and ships powered by biofuel. The Navy contract follows on the heels of both companies’ involvement in historic commercial airline flights using biofuel. This includes Dynamic Fuels’ renewable jet fuel work with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Finnair, Thomson Airways and Alaska Airlines, and Solazyme’s recent flight and partnership with United Airlines, which includes a letter of intent to provide 20 million gallons a year starting in 2014. The fuel for the Navy will be manufactured at Dynamic Fuel’s Geismar, La., renewable fuels plant using U.S.-sourced yellow grease (used cooking oil) as well as Solazyme’s tailored algal oil as feedstocks. The fuel will be delivered to the U.S. Navy in May 2012. The Dynamic Fuels plant, which has been in operation for more than a year, is designed to convert non-food feedstocks such as algal oil, animal

fats, and greases into renewable fuels. “This award clearly demonstrates that we’re building momentum for the sale and use of our renewable fuels,” said Jeff Bigger, director of the Dynamic Fuels LLC Management Committee. “We’ve previously provided the U.S. military with fuel for testing. We believe this contract confirms they recognize the performance and environmental advantages of our fuel since they’re coming back for more and are asking for a much larger volume.” “This is an historic contract and we are proud to be teaming up with Dynamic Fuels to produce and deliver the advanced biofuel to the U.S. Navy to sail the Great Green Fleet. Dynamic Fuels has been a leader in next generation advanced biofuels technology and this partnership further solidifies the progress that both of our companies are making in bringing advanced renewable fuels to commercialization,” said Jonathan Wolfson, CEO of Solazyme. “Solazyme is honored to be working with the U.S. Navy and DLA-Energy in driving forward the Navy’s effort under Secretary Ray Mabus to source 50 percent of its energy from renewable sources by 2020.” A video of operations at Dynamic Fuels can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=zsI1dov9Xbw.

Soybean checkoff notes importance of poultry ST. LOUIS — The soybean checkoff talks a lot about U.S. soybean farmers’ number one customers — poultry and livestock farmers. But these sectors impact more than just a soybean farmer’s profit potential. According to a recent soybean-checkoff-funded

study, poultry and livestock supported 1.8 million U.S. jobs and added $19 billion in tax revenue annually to the U.S. economy. “It’s important that we maintain and expand animal agriculture in the United States,” says Laura Foell, a soybean farmer from Schaller, Iowa, and a farmer-leader for the United Soybean Board. “It helps grow our U.S. soybean industry but is also a way we can keep jobs here and know we are producing safe and reliable food.” That economic impact appears to be more than just a fad, the group noted. In fact, the poultry and livestock sectors increased household incomes by more than $4 billion during the last decade alone. Nearly 70 percent of that growth occurred west of the Mississippi River or right on its borders, but trends show growth occurring more evenly throughout the country. “This study shows the importance of animal agriculture not only to soybean farmers, but also to our local, state and national economies,” Foell said. “And animal agriculture helps local businesses by purchasing goods in local stores and creating local jobs.” Iowa and California won big for growth in earnings, jobs and tax revenue from animal agriculture, according to the study. Iowa added more than 19,000 jobs since 2000, while California added more than 17,000 in the same time period. These states added $176.2 million and $185.5 million in tax revenue, respectively, the study found. Poultry and livestock consume 98 percent of domestic soybean meal each year and help increase the value of U.S. soybeans. The checkoff study showed most recently that consumption equaled 30 million tons of soybean meal, or the meal from approximately 1.2 billion bushels of soybeans (Continued on next page)

Henningsen installs solar electric system PORTLAND, Ore. — Henningsen Cold Storage has announced the installation and commissioning of a 78 kilowatt solar-electric system on its Portland, Ore., cold storage operation. It installed solar power to reduce and stabilize energy costs and to follow through on its long-standing commitment to protecting the environment, the company said. The Henningsen installation includes 336 multi-crystalline solar panels, manufactured in the U.S., covering 12,000 square feet of preexisting roof space. This system will supply approximately 5 percent of the electrical energy needs

for the 145,000 square foot facility or 77,280 kilowatt hours of annual energy production, the company noted. Henningsen operates three cold storage facilities in the Portland area. This marks the company’s second investment in solar power technology. In 2010, the company installed a 200 kilowatt system on its 142,000 square foot facility. It is estimated that during its 25year warranted life, the solar-energy system will keep 60 tons of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere, the company said, adding that, this is equivalent to driving an automobile more than 1,970,950 miles or the annual carbon dioxide offset of more than 61,800 trees.

Sparboe’s policies. “We also engaged an independent auditor from Iowa State University to conduct a third-party animal welfare audit, which confirmed that we are in full compliance with our animal welfare policies,” Schnell said. “In fact, we have successfully passed three additional third party audits in the last ten days.” Schnell pointed out that “for 57 years, the Sparboe family and hundreds of dedicated employees have worked hard every day to properly care for our chickens so they will produce well for our loyal customers who, in turn, will provide families with safe, nutritious, affordable eggs. That’s why we were so sickened that the wrongful acts of a handful of bad actors would raise questions about Sparboe Farms’ earned reputation and overshadow the good work of the vast majority of our employees who strive to do the right thing every day.” Schnell said that all of the company’s bird-handling employees have been re-trained, and that “we are going to increase our animal care, food safety and com-

This premium, all-natural brand of chicken, distributed by Minnesota-based GNP Co., has no antibiotics, no added hormones, no animal byproducts and no unwanted solutions or additives, the group noted, adding that, it has traceability to the family farm where it was raised, and the promise of a lighter environmental footprint, as proven by the carbon reduction logo on every package. “Just BARE Chicken is an exciting addition to the ranks of American Humane Certified producers,” said Dr. Robin R. Ganzert, president and CEO of the American Humane Association. “The brand’s focus on caring practices, transparency and high quality standards for its chickens is a perfect match for our farm animal welfare program.” In early 2012, the American Humane Certified seal will be added to labels of the company’s fresh and frozen lines of Just BARE all-natural chicken, which include items ranging from hand-trimmed boneless, skinless chicken breast fillets to whole chicken to boneless, skinless chicken thighs. The American Humane Certified seal signifies that

pliance staff.” Regarding the FDA violations, Schnell said that earlier this year Sparboe responded to the FDA with corrective actions within 15 days of each inspection. In light of the recent warning letter advising the company that additional corrective steps are needed, “Our team will continue to work with the FDA to successfully address the remaining concerns immediately,” Schnell said. Schnell underscored that “at no time has there been any health risk from Sparboe Farms eggs. Not a single egg has ever tested positive for salmonella. So the bottom line for consumers is that Sparboe Farms eggs and egg products are safe to eat.” Sparboe Farms is dedicated to “continuous improvement in every area of our business because we want to truly be ‘best in class’ for the benefit of customers and consumers. And we are committed to always doing what’s right and conducting business in a socially responsible manner,” Schnell added. More information can be obtained at http://www. sparboeupdate.com.

Business an independent, third-party audit verified that Just BARE’s animal care and handling processes met the more than 200 standards certified by American Humane Association. According to Julie Berling, director of brand advocacy and marketing for Just BARE, only a few small changes were required for the brand to achieve certification. However, this didn’t surprise her, since the respectful care and handling of its chickens has been a priority for the company since it was founded in 1926. “For us, the real benefit of Just BARE becoming an American Humane Certified producer is the access to the leading thinking on animal welfare of American Humane Association and the added consumer trust and confidence third-party certification provides,” Berling said. In October 2010, GNP Co. conducted a study with its consumer panel to determine how much trust consumers place in various levels of animal welfare claims. Choices included certification by a third-

party animal welfare association, by a government or industry association, or by a company’s own records. Nearly 62 percent of Just BARE target consumers said they placed a high degree of trust in certification by a third-party animal welfare association, as long as it was executed by a known and reputable certifier — more than twice that of each of the other two options. “With its founding association dating back to 1877, it being the nation’s first and fastest-growing farm animal welfare program, and its sound, science-based standards,” Berling said, “the American Humane Certified Farm Program fits the bill as a known and reputable certifier and, in our opinion, is the best and strongest choice for animal welfare certification.” A listing of American Humane Certified producers can be obtained at http://www.thehumanetouch.org.

POULTRY TIMES, December 19, 2011

2012 IPE introduces rendering symposium ATLANTA — The International Poultry Expo is introducing a new education program titled, International Rendering Symposium: Focus on Quality, as a featured component of its educational programs at the 2012 Expo. The program is co-sponsored by the National Renderers Association and U.S. Poultry & Egg Association. The U.S. rendering industry collects and safely processes more than 50 billion pounds of animal byproducts each year. Through this process the indus-

try converts these materials into fats and proteins used in animal feed. The rendering industry provides services for the safe collection of these materials, transports the materials in biosecure, leak-proof trucks and uses heat (240 to 290 degrees F) to dehydrate and separate the fat and solid materials. This extensive process builds on the need to include safety and quality into a rendered product. “Rendered byproducts are an essential aspect to the poultry industry,” said Dr. David Meek-

er, vice president of scientific services for the National Renderers Association. “Encompassing safety and quality control practices serve as the foundation to the production of a quality product. This program will include several globally recognized speakers who will focus on control methods, microbiological controls, research and useful details on using rendered products in high quality diets for various species,” he said. “We really appreciate the Na-

tional Rendering Association developing this excellent and timely educational program. We have had a number of loyal rendering-based exhibitors for many years, and we think adding this program makes Atlanta the place to be for anyone in the world wanting to learn about the industry and see the latest equipment and technology,” remarked John Starkey, president of USPOULTRY. Programs topics will include Global Rendering Markets, Rendering Code of Practice for

Safety and Quality – Certification Standards, Controlling Salmonella in Feed, Research in the Rendering Industry, The Role of Rendered Products in Aquaculture Feeds and Rendered Products for Pet Food. The 2012 Expo will be held Jan. 24-26, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. The International Rendering Symposium is scheduled for Thursday and Friday, Jan. 26-27 in Room B-405. The entire conference agenda can be viewed at http:// www.ipeweek12.org.

IPE & UGA collaborate on educational program

USPOULTRY announces new management workshop

ATHENS, Ga. — The International Poultry Expo is collaborating with the University of Georgia to promote the Georgia International Poultry Short Course 2012 to be held Jan. 27-31, 2012, in Athens, Ga. Registrants who sign up for the short course will also receive registration to the 2012 IPE, which will take place Jan. 24-26, 2012 in Atlanta, Ga. The Georgia International Poultry Course is a four-day day conference designed by the Department of Poultry Science at the University of Georgia. It covers a broad range of topics for individuals new to the poultry industry, as well as for experienced professionals. In addition to formal instruction, demonstrations in various areas of poultry science will be conducted at the university research facility in Athens. During this program, participants will have the opportunity to interact with experts in many areas. In addition, translation to Spanish may be available based on participant applications. The course will immediately follow the International Poultry Expo in Atlanta. Some topics that will be covered in the short course are: U.S. poultry industry structure and economics, poultry nutrition, poultry diets, broiler breeder management, incubation/hatchery management, hot weather management, cold weather ventilation, foot pad dermatitis, poultry mortality management, live production environmental management, poultry processing, processing food safety and HACCP, environmental impacts of processing, biosecurity and vaccination programs, egg layer production and management, pastured poultry, energy use and conservation and animal welfare. More information can be found at http://www.poultry.uga.edu/extension/InternationalShortCourse.htm

ATLANTA — A new Introduction to Management Workshop, sponsored by U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, will be offered in January following the upcoming 2012 International Poultry Expo. The workshop is focused on basic business skills for new managers and will provide a fundamental understanding of the financial and accounting tools available to help manage effectively, as well as the people management skills needed to succeed in today’s business environment. The program will be presented by Seals Burdell, USPOULTRY controller, and Paul Pressley, executive vice president, industry programs, who represent a combined 60+ years of poultry industry experience. This experience

will be utilized to highlight concepts such as product costing, performance measurement, internal controls, interpreting financial statements, and personnel, safety and risk management. Additionally, well known industry analyst Mike Donohue, vice president of AgriStats, will provide an outline of how the industry uses AgriStats’ data to improve operations. “We listened to our members and developed a workshop on managerial basics for our line-up of educational seminars and workshops for 2012. Our members indicated that new college hires, management trainees and newly promoted managers may have the technical skills necessary to perform the tasks assigned. However, many often lack command of the basic business skills

to function effectively in the organization. This workshop will address these areas of concern,” remarked John Starkey, president of USPOULTRY. Programs topics will include an industry overview: an introduction to the poultry and egg business; finance/ accounting tools; human resources: managing people skills; AgriStats: metrics and purpose; and regulatory environment. The workshop is scheduled for Thursday and Friday, Jan. 26-27, 2012, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. Registration for the workshop includes admission to the International Poultry Expo scheduled for Jan. 2426.

Study: Incentives not enough for Michigan gas stations KEENE, N.H. — Biofuels such as ethanol and biodiesel were once heralded as stars of our renewable energy future. But how practical is it for service stations to sell biofuels? Rich Grogan, an assistant professor in the Department of Management at Antioch University New England (AUNE), put that question to owners of service stations and oil companies in Michigan. If biofuels were going to be embraced by the driving public, consumers would have to find it convenient to purchase them. Grogan, who earned a doctorate degree in organizational sustainability from Michigan State University, wanted to know how and why the retail-

ers on the ground floor of the industry made their decisions. “In Michigan, between ninety and ninety-five percent of service stations are locally owned — they are small businesses,” according to Grogan. “And so each one of these small businesses had to determine for themselves whether or not to offer biofuels. . . . And if they chose not to, there could be no massive adoption by consumers.”

Many barriers Grogan found that few service stations in Michigan actually offered ethanol and biodiesel to their customers, despite financial incentives from the state government.

Although the expense of new infrastructure was the reason most commonly given for not offering biofuels, it was not the only justification. Servicestation owners also faced an uncertain regulatory environment at the state level and resistance from the big gasoline and diesel brands. Gas stations that did gear up to sell biofuels, on the assumptions that there would be sufficient demand and that it would give them an advantage over their competitors, faced an uncertain return on their investment, since customer demand often didn’t materialize. Grogan presented the study’s results in his paper “Choosing Sustainability: A Case

Study of Service Stations” at an international conference on small and medium enterprises, SMEs: Moving Toward Business Sustainability, that was sponsored by the Network for Business Sustainability this fall in Montreal. Grogan undertook his study from 2007 to 2010, interviewing service-station owners about their decisions on whether or not to invest in the infrastructure needed to offer biofuels. “Biofuels were the darling of U.S. politicians, who promised that biofuels would reduce petroleum use; in Michigan, they were touted as the economic savior of a depressed economy,” he wrote. The state was offering up to

$7,500 to station owners to defray the cost of upgrading infrastructure. He found that government incentives were not sufficient to convince gas-station owners to install the pumps and other infrastructure needed to sell biofuels, which could cost as much as $100,000. Grogan concluded that, if they were going to succeed on a wide scale, policies designed to encourage sustainable practices — such as Michigan’s biofuel incentive — must realistically calculate the costs and impacts of infrastructure changes and simultaneously address the need for decision support among small business owners.

Brazil’s ability to meet world ethanol demand By Constanza Valdes Special to Poultry Times

WASHINGTON — Worldwide production and use of ethanol as an alternative to fossil fuel has increased dramatically since 2000. Ethanol demand is being driven by rising world crude oil prices, increased use of ethanol as an environmentally friendly fuel oxygenate, and government incentives in many countries to reduce dependence on fossil fuel by increasing the use of renewable energy sources. Global ethanol use will continue to rise during the next decade if countries fulfill their ethanol use targets. Brazil is the world’s second largest ethanol producer and exporter (after the U.S.). Several factors have combined to stimulate the development of Brazil’s ethanol industry: an increased capacity to produce sugarcane as an ethanol feedstock, supportive government policies, Constanza Valdes is with the USDA’s Economic Research Service in Washington, D.C.

and improved efficiency in sugarcane production and ethanol conversion processes. But Brazil will need to sustain production growth in the ethanol sector in order to meet increasing domestic demand and maintain its export share.

Expansion Brazil is now the world’s largest grower of sugarcane at 719 million tons in 2010, accounting for a third of world production. Cultivated sugarcane area has expanded rapidly from 4.3 million hectares (1 hectare = 2.47 acres) in 1990, to more than 10 million hectares in 2010. Sugarcane cultivation has been central to Brazilian agricultural development since the 1950s. Sugar was Brazil’s most valuable export crop in the 1950s and 1960s. In the mid1970s, emphasis switched from sugar to ethanol production to meet domestic fuel needs, and, with the current boom in renewable fuels demand, Brazil has become a large-scale ethanol producer and exporter. The rapid expansion in Brazil’s sugarcane production is

the result of a favorable climate, land availability, abundant labor, a pro-ethanol public policy, and research by public agencies to develop higher yielding cane varieties and new planting techniques to increase efficiency. While much of the expansion has been due to the conversion of former pastureland to sugarcane cultivation, with area increasing annually by 3.2 percent since 1975, productivity increases have also contributed to sugarcane growth. Continual improvements in sugarcane productivity since the 1970s have increased yields by almost 34 tons per hectare to the national average of nearly 80 tons per hectare in 2010, one of the world’s highest. In São Paulo, Brazil’s leading cane-producing state, yields are 20 percent to 25 percent above the national average. In 2010, Brazilian sugarcane used for ethanol production totaled 398 million tons, or 55.4 percent of the sugarcane harvested. Domestic and global growth in ethanol demand has boosted the share of cane used for ethanol since 2006/07. The allocation of sugarcane to production of sugar versus ethanol is set by millers based on expected sugar and ethanol prices and market demand. This marks a significant change from the early years of Proálcool (Brazil’s ethanol program), when the allocation of sugarcane to ethanol production was an administered policy instrument to counter oversupply of sugar and low international sugar prices.

Capacity Brazil’s ethanol production capacity rose from 11 billion liters (1 liter = 0.26 gallon) in 2000 to 27 billion liters in 2010, accounting for 26 percent of worldwide ethanol production in that year.

Since 2000, the number of ethanol-producing plants (distilleries and mixed sugar-ethanol processing mills) in Brazil has doubled to 430. Most are located in São Paulo (SP), which accounted for 58 percent of total Brazilian production in 2010. Growth in ethanol production has been fastest in Brazil’s Center-West region, where production has increased 15 percent yearly since 2001. This region includes the States of Goias (GO), Mato Grosso do Sul (MS), and Mato Grosso (MT), which together accounted for 16 percent of Brazil’s ethanol production and where future ethanol expansion is expected to occur. At the same time, processors are becoming more efficient in producing ethanol from sugarcane. Ethanol yields at distilleries have grown 4 percent per year since 2000 as plants have adopted more efficient processing technologies. Brazil’s position as an exporter of ethanol continues to grow in importance: the ratio of exports to production increased from an average of 4 percent in the early 2000s to 19 percent in 2008, before declining to 7 percent in 2010. Until 2008, Brazil was the world’s largest supplier of ethanol, reaching a peak of 5.1 billion liters in 2008 and accounting for more than 62 percent of the world ethanol export market. Brazil’s ethanol exports declined in 2009 and 2010 because of strong domestic demand for ethanol and greater diversion of cane to sugar production in response to high global sugar prices and strong demand by India for sugar imports.

Government policies The push to promote Brazil’s ethanol industry began in 1975

when the government implemented the Proálcool program in response to soaring crude oil prices and a crisis in the international sugar market. The program encouraged replacement of imported crude oil with domestically produced ethanol, which was blended with gasoline. Under the program, the government provided financial support for the construction of distilleries. To ensure a domestic market for ethanol, the government stimulated demand through mandatory ethanol blending targets, subsidized credit to factories producing cars that use ethanol, and tax exemptions for consumers to buy them. Vehicles that ran only on ethanol were introduced in 1979, and by 2003, flex-fuel vehicles that can be powered by gasoline and ethanol in any proportion up to 100 percent ethanol were available. As in the U.S., support for consumption of ethanol continues through mandatory blending of ethanol with gasoline. Credit granted by public financial institutions has also been an important factor in development of the sector. Government- subsidized credit allocated to sugarcane cultivation grew from less than $200 million in 2000 to $3.1 billion in 2010, while credit allocations to the ethanol industry expanded 80 percent per year since 2000 to $1.7 billion in 2010. Historically, sugarcane producers in Brazil’s Northeastern region have been given special subsidies (currently R$5 per ton) and protection because of the region’s weak economy and its dependence on sugar.

Demand Demand for ethanol in major consuming countries has risen

Neb. enzyme plant readies to supply biofuel industry The Associated Press

BLAIR, Neb. — The leading maker of the enzymes used to produce biofuels says the declining political support for ethanol hasn’t diminished the long-term prospects for the industry making fuel from plants. Novozymes plans to open a major new enzyme plant in eastern Nebraska next year to better serve the ethanol industry. “It’s a huge potential that’s out there,” said Adam Monroe, president of Novozymes’ North American unit. Monroe said he thinks the U.S. biofuel industry has grown up a great deal over the past decade, so he’s not concerned about the end of the federal ethanol tax credit next year. “It can now stand on its own two feet and compete,” he said. But Monroe said he thinks the government should continue to support the biofuels industry through policies like the renewable fuels standard, which will require 36 billion gallons of biofuels to be blended into gasoline by 2022, including 16 billion gallons of cellulosic ethanol. Monroe said the ethanol industry has the potential to provide a much bigger share of the nation’s fuel supply than the renewable fuels standard requires. “It’s a bigger solution than a lot of people realize,” he said. The Renewable Fuels Association says the industry is now producing about 13.7 billion gallons of ethanol at more than 200 plants nationwide, which includes 25 plants in Nebraska. That’s roughly 10 percent of the 138 billion gallons of gas that were used in the country last year. Association spokesman Matt Hartwig said the industry is prepared for the end of the 4.5-cent per gallon tax credit ethanol has

received for several years. “Right now, ethanol is very costcompetitive with gasoline without the tax credits,” Hartwig said. Novozymes expects the new enzyme plant, which cost between $160 million and $200 million, to be completed sometime during the second quarter of next year. More than 200 construction workers are spending their days at the site south of Blair to meet that target. About 56 full-time employees work at the plant already, but that number will grow toward 100 beginning early next year. Blair was chosen for Novozymes’ new plant because the plant will be close to the raw materials it needs and close to its customers. Plus, Nebraska offered relatively cheap

electrical power for the plant. The Blair plant will take over production of Novozymes’ biofuel enzymes from the company’s North Carolina plant. That facility will then focus on making enzymes for other uses, including detergents, food production and beer brewing. Novozymes estimates that its products accounted for about 47 percent of the global enzyme market in 2010 and about 65 percent of the biofuel enzyme market. Sales of biofuel enzymes account for about 18 percent of Novozymes’ business. Novozymes, which is based in Bagsvaerd, Denmark, employs about 5,400 people — half of them based in Denmark.

Study: Turkey diet can reduce nitrogen emissions CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Due to increased scrutiny from government regulators and the public on air emissions from poultry production facilities, there is a growing incentive for producers to take cost-effective steps to enhance the emission profiles of their operations. To this end, a recent USDA-funded study conducted at Michigan State University has shown that by making simple changes to the diets fed to turkey toms, producers can reduce nitrogen emissions from their growout farms without sacrificing meat yields. Researchers from Michigan State University, University of Maryland and Purdue University detailed their findings in a recent issue of Poultry Science, the journal is published by the Poultry Science Association (PSA).

Egg farm in fight to avoid more rules McClatchy Newspapers

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Environmental groups and the poultry industry are closely watching a North Carolina case that could prevent the state from using federal water-quality protection laws to regulate airborne emissions from a livestock operation. Environmentalists contend the outcome will have national implications, but the other side says the matter has already been settled by the courts. At issue is a massive egg farm in Hyde County that has been operating since 2006 about a mile from the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge. The Indiana-based Rose Acre Farms received a fiveyear permit under the Clean Water Act, and state regulators determined it wouldn’t need an air quality permit because

emissions were not likely to exceed federal limits. Because the plant, with more than 3 million birds housed in 12 high-rise hen houses, is so close to the 110,000-acre wetlands habitat, the state Department of Environment and Natural Resources began taking regular water samples to ensure there was no contamination. DENR found in 2009 that ammonia and other pollutants in nearby waterways had increased significantly. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reported similar findings. The state Division of Water Quality renewed Rose Acre Farm’s permit in 2010 but also tacked on new conditions, including monitoring ammonia from the hen houses’ ventilation system. The company objected to those conditions and appealed, arguing the state had no legal authority under the Clean Water Act since it

doesn’t discharge into waterways. In October, state Administrative Law Judge Augustus B. Elkins II agreed with Rose Acre Farms, finding that the state had no authority to require a permit under the Clean Water Act and impose the new requirements. Elkins cited a recent federal appellate court ruling and the state Environmental Management Commission’s own decision in 2001 not to regulate airborne emissions of ammonia in the state’s water-protection program in the Tar-Pamlico River Basin. The case now goes to the commission on appeal, where Rose Acre Farms is confident the ruling will be upheld. The Environmental Management Commission can only reverse an administrative law judge’s ruling on the facts of the case, Joseph A. Miller, general counsel for the egg farm, said. Since Elkins issued a summary judgment based solely on the legal issues, Miller says a reversal is unlikely. A ruling in favor of Rose Acre Farms by the commission, which is scheduled to hear the case in January, would settle the case. DENR cannot appeal a decision by the commission because it is an entity of the department. That prompted several environmental groups to file a motion this week to intervene in the case. If they are successful, they can appeal the case to a state superior court. The groups are the PamlicoTar River Foundation, Friends of Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge and Waterkeeper Alliance. They argue that DENR cannot adequately represent their

interests because the agency “must balance competing interests and make compromises where necessary for political reasons.” Earlier, the N.C. Poultry Federation was permitted to join the case in alliance with Rose Acre Farms. When it was proposed in 2003, the egg farm was hailed as a boon to an economically challenged area of the state. The plant employs about 150 people. But local and statewide conservation groups were concerned from the beginning. The Pocosin refuge is a major route for migratory waterfowl and is home to the endangered red wolf. Environmentalists cite the company’s own experts estimating that the farm emits more than 2 million pounds of ammonia each year. They say studies show that between 184,000 and 570,000 pounds of ammonia have been deposited within two miles of the plant and that it is inevitable

some will reach the refuge waterways. Miller, the company’s attorney, countered that studies have shown emissions amount to less than half a pound per acre in the refuge. Miller said an N.C. State University expert who has studied the soil in that part of the state for decades has determined that the ammonia deposits there are beneficial. Another NCSU expert says the plant is not emitting more nitrogen material than it brings in through feed, Miller said. “Their argument that all of this is going into the water doesn’t make sense,” Miller said. Christopher Leung of Earthjustice, the environmental law group that filed the motion, disagrees. “It’s all ending up in nearby water in a national wildlife refuge,” he said Wednesday. “The Clean Water Act was meant to protect against that.

Teamsters sue to close border to Mexican trucks WASHINGTON — The International Brotherhood of Teamsters has filed suit to block Mexican trucks from operating in the U.S. In papers filed Nov. 23 in federal appeals court in Washington, the union said the government must first assess the environmental impact of a pilot project before letting it continue. The first Mexican truck in the pilot program crossed the border last month. Teamsters President James P. Hoffa said opening the border to the trucks is an attack on the environment, on highway safety and on American truckers and warehouse workers. “It’s outrageous enough that we’ve outsourced millions of jobs to foreign countries, but now we’re bringing foreign workers here to take our jobs,”

Hoffa said in a statement. “This is another pressure the American middle-class doesn’t need.” Under the North American Free Trade Agreement signed nearly two decades ago, trucks from both countries were supposed to have unhindered access to highways on either side of the border. The Teamsters, Public Citizen and the Sierra Club challenged the program in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. The suit claims the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration breaks the following laws: l It waives a law that trucks must display certain proof that they meet federal safety standards. l It breaks the law requiring the pilot program to achieve an equivalent level of safety because Mexican drivers don’t

have to meet the same physical requirements as U.S. drivers. l It breaks the law that Mexico must provide simultaneous and comparable access to U.S. trucks. Mexico cannot do so because of the limited availability of ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel in Mexico. l It breaks the law that the pilot program must include enough participants to be statistically valid. The FMCSA’s proposal ensures that only the best Mexican trucks participate, which would allow it to justify letting any Mexican truck over the border in the future. l It doesn’t comply with the environment requirement of the National Environmental Policy Act. “Congress has repeatedly and overwhelmingly set tough safety

Labor Department files discrimination complaint SPRINGDALE, Ark. — The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs has filed an administrative complaint against federal contractor Cargill Meat Solutions, alleging that the company systematically discriminated against 4,069 qualified female, white, black, Hispanic and Native American applicants who sought entry-level production jobs at its Springdale, Ark., facility. The complaint was filed with the department’s Office of Administrative Law Judges after OFCCP was unable to secure a fair resolution from Cargill Meat Solutions to pay back wages and interest to the rejected job applicants and extend job offers to at least 167 of the affected workers. OFCCP is seeking cancellation of Cargill Meat Solutions’ existing government contracts and debarment from entering into future contracts until the company resolves all violations and corrects its discriminatory employment practices. “This is an unfortunate case in which thousands of qualified workers were denied the opportunity to compete fairly for jobs in a tough economy,” said

OFCCP Director Patricia A. Shiu. “Cargill has discriminated against vulnerable workers. OFCCP is prepared to use every tool at our disposal, including canceling a company’s federal contracts when necessary, to achieve the goal of equal opportunity for workers.” OFCCP discovered the company’s discriminatory practices during a scheduled review to determine its compliance with Executive Order 11246, which prohibits federal contractors from discriminating on the basis of race, national origin or sex when making hiring decisions. The investigation found that the company’s selection criteria were subjectively and inconsistently applied. As a result, women were less likely to be employed in entry-level production jobs, and Asian and Pacific Islander job seekers were unfairly favored over other racial groups. Cargill Meat Solutions, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Minneapolis, Minn.-based Cargill Inc., currently holds contracts totaling $60 million with the U.S. Department of Defense. The Springdale facility processes turkeys for sale under the brand names Honeysuckle White and Riverside.

conditions for any cross-border trucking program, and this one clearly doesn’t meet those conditions,” Hoffa said. Mexico’s Ambassador to the U.S., Arturo Sarukhan, said that the Teamsters are engaging in protectionism. “First it was about the safety of Mexican rigs; now, with nowhere to run with that argu-

ment, the new red herring is an alleged environmental impact,” Sarukhan said in a statement. Founded in 1903, the Teamsters Union represents more than 1.4 million men and women in the U.S. and Canada. The Associated Press contributed to this report.

plementations on nutrient retention and excretion by turkeys. They observed that decreasing dietary crude protein from 110 percent to 100 percent of the amount recommended by the National Research Council (NRC), and adding threonine to an AA supplementation of lysine and methionine, measurably reduced the nitrogen and cumulative ammonia (NH3) losses from turkey facilities with no differences in tom growth or feed conversion. Specifically, the study showed that diets containing the three supplemental amino acids resulted in lower nitrogen excretion (by 12 percent) and a lower cumulative loss of ammonia (by 23 percent) when compared with diets containing only two supplemental amino acids. The Environmental Protection Agency monitors emissions of air pollutants, such as particulate matter, ammonia, hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), under the U.S. Clean Air Act of 1990 (CAA). In 2005 the EPA announced an air quality compliance agreement to address emissions from certain animal feeding operations or AFOs. Dr. Zefei Liu, research associate at Michigan State University and one of the authors of the study, noted: “The goals of the 2005 EPA agreement include ensuring compliance with applicable CERCLA (Clean Air Act, Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act) and EPCRA (Environmental Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act) provisions. Because some of these provisions carry hefty penalties for non-compliance, it is important for the poultry industry to continue to search for methods to monitor and control nutrient losses and air emissions from their operations. We hope that the findings of our study will contribute to this effort.” Details on the study’s design, chemical analyses and air emission measurement methodologies, along with a more complete discussion of the findings, can be found in the original Poultry Science article, which is free and available for download at http://ps.fass.org/content/90/6/1153.full.

Our technical expertise in the management of high power microwave frequencies has proved invaluable in providing reliable and cost effective cooking, batch tempering and drying systems. Ferrite Tempering Systems provide point of product temperature control, preventing bacteria such as E. coli and listeria from incubating and contaminating products. Due to the speed of microwave heating, natural juices and flavors are retained, resulting in products with better color, taste and texture than with conventional slow thawing. A Ferrite Booster Oven will increase production capacity 30-50 percent. When placed in front of the cooling line, it pre-heats the entire product so time with your present cooking system is reduced. Designed with an integrated platform to maximize floor space, this is a turnkey system that integrates directly into any current cooking system. We can

carefully customize our systems to the specific application of our clients and support our systems with an excellent service and parts department.

The Sine pump’s capacity of pumping large particulates while providing powerful suction and smooth consistent flow rates provides the ultimate solution for pumping marinated boneless poultry products. Unlike typical poultry further processing plants which implement labor intensive methods to place marinated meat products on conveyors using up to 10 workers across a 40inch belt, the use of the MasoSine pump eliminates unnecessary labor by mechanically spreading the product directly onto the conveyor. Additionally, the pump eliminates inconsistent production rates due to human error and increases profitability of a production line. With a single shaft and rotor, MasoSine pumps are easy to use and quick to maintain or clean, reducing production costs. Our food and beverage pumps are engineered for long service life without the high cost or inconvenience of offsite remanufacturing or reconditioning. The proof is in MasoSine’s 20 year warranty on our pump housing.

USDA celebrates 150th anniversary in 2012 SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — On Nov. 2, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack visited the Old Illinois State Capitol to announce the year-long celebration of USDA’s 150th anniversary in 2012. Vilsack was in the hometown of USDA’s founder — President Abraham Lincoln — who signed into law an act of Congress establishing the United States Department of Agriculture in 1862. “Through our work on food, agriculture, economic development, science, natural resource conservation and a host of issues, USDA still fulfills President Lincoln’s vision as “The People’s Depart-

ment” — touching the lives of every American, every day,” Vilsack said. “As we commemorate 150 years, we will look for lessons from the past that can help us strengthen USDA in the future to address the changing needs of agriculture and rural America.” President Lincoln established USDA because he recognized the potential of America’s farmers to find new ways to cultivate the land and that with advances in research and technology, America’s farmers and ranchers could provide a safe, ample food supply for our nation and the world, the department noted.

In one of President Lincoln’s only speeches on agriculture at the Wisconsin State Agricultural Society on Sept. 30, 1859, he said, “. . . no other human occupation opens so wide a field for the profitable and agreeable combination of labor with cultivated thought, as agriculture.” USDA noted that it is getting

“Our long-standing International Poultry Scientific Forum, Pet Food Conference, Animal Agriculture Sustainability Summit and USPOULTRY Education Programs are an important part of IPE and provide people with an additional purpose for attending the Expo,” said John Starkey, president of the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, adding that, “. . . IPE Week gives us an opportunity to provide additional education programs, something we have not been able to do in the past.” New for 2012 are the following educational programs: Chartering the Course: An Executive Conference on the Future of the American Poultry Industry (which will incorporate the Market Intelligence Forum); IPE Pre-Harvest Food Safety Conference (a compliment to the 2011 IPE Salmonella and Campylobacter Reduction Conference); USPOULTRY/United Egg Producers Symposium on the Future of American Egg Production; and the National Renderer’s Association Quality Feed Ingredients Conference.

Registration Attendee and exhibitor pre-registration and hotel registration for the 2012 IPE/IFE is also open. Online is the only way to pre-register for the discounted price of $40 through Jan. 6, 2012. After Jan. 6, 2012, the registration fee will in-

crease to $60. The newly updated IPE web site focuses on relevant attendee information including attendee registration, hotel reservations, a video describing the IPE experience and a schedule of 2012 educational seminars offered during the Expo. Also returning will be the “Members to Atlanta” (M2A) program, which waives the registration fee for attendees from member companies of either association engaged in the production of poultry/egg for consumption, and feed products. The program is supported through the sponsorship of elite Expo exhibitors. They include: Agranco Corp. USA, Alaso, Alltech, Aviagen, Cobb-Vantress, Diamond V, ISI-Incubator Supply, Jamesway, Marel Stork Poultry Processing, Mosaic, Pfizer Poultry Health and Val-Co. “We recognize and thank these elite exhibiting companies for joining in the M2A program. M2A performed a significant part in increasing attendance and contributing to the success of the 2011 Expo. We expect M2A to be utilized again for the 2012 year and to continue to add excitement through the support of these elite sponsors,” said USPOULTRY Chairman Gary Cooper, Cooper Farms, Oakwood, Ohio. More information about the 2012 IPE/IFE can be obtained at 770-493-9401, or http://www.ipeweek12.org.

ready for a historic year for the department next year. In February 2012, at USDA’s Annual Agricultural Outlook Forum, the department will formally launch the 150th anniversary commemoration. Throughout 2012, USDA will recognize important events, such as President Lincoln’s signing of an Act to establish the Department of Agriculture on May, 15, 1862, and the July signing of the Morrill Act to establish public land grant universities. Employ-

ees in USDA field offices across the country will also celebrate this landmark throughout 2012. USDA has also created a web page, http://www.usda. gov/usda150. The site will give the American people a sense of where USDA has been — and where USDA is headed in the 21st century, the department said. This web page will provide information about events, facts and goings-on related to the anniversary.

Process Expo notes record-breaking attendance for 2011 MCLEAN, Va. — The Food Processing Suppliers Association has announced registered attendees of 12,732 for PROCESS EXPO 2011, which took place Nov. 1-4, 2011, at McCormick Place in Chicago. International attendees at this year’s event totaled just more than 14 percent of visitors with the largest delegations coming from Canada, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela and Germany. “We’re very happy with the strong turnout at this year’s show,” said Scott Scriven, chairman of the Food Processing Suppliers Association and president of Weber Inc. “Not only did we double the size of the show floor over last year’s, we delivered more than twice as many attendees to the show at the same time. When you take the economy into account and what is going on at other industry trade shows, these results are absolutely remarkable and demonstrate the industry’s enthusiastic support of a horizontal trade show dedicated entirely to the food and beverage industry.” “This year, special attention was placed on the attendee experience at PROCESS EXPO,” said FPSA President and CEO David Seckman.”This year’s show featured a greatly expanded educational program built with input from the food processor community. Culinary and industry council pavilions highlighted finished products for the consumer, and mobile resources such as the PROCESS EXPO mobile app and eDaily provided attendees with more information at their fingertips.” In 2010, FPSA announced that PROCESS EXPO was moving to a biennial show cycle. The next PROCESS EXPO is scheduled for Oct. 14-17, 2013, in the North Hall of Chicago’s McCormick Place.

Molecular serotyping •Future and detecting salmonella (Continued from page 3)

By Dr. Jonathan Frye Special to Poultry Times

OCEAN CITY, Md. — Salmonella enterica is an important human and animal pathogen responsible for infection of more than 1 million people each year in the U.S. Many of these illnesses are thought to be caused by the foodborne transmission of salmonella from food animal products to humans. To help prevent foodborne disease, the detection of salmonella is necessary on farms, in animals, on carcasses and on food products destined for retail sale. To complicate matters, Salmonella enterica is composed of more than 2,500 different serovars (aka: serotypes), each of which may have a different host range, virulence, or potential for becoming a foodborne pathogen. Therefore, in addition to detection techniques such as isolation and culturing, the salmonella collected must be further characterized by serovar, using specific antiserum in a difficult and multi-step procedure. In the past several years, molecular-based tests such as polymerase chain reaction Dr. Jonathan G. Frye is a research microbiologist with the USDA Agricultural Research Service, Bacterial Epidemiology and Antimicrobial Resistance Research Unit in Athens, Ga. This article is drawn from a presentation given at the 46th National Meeting on Poultry Health and Processing held in Ocean City, Md., sponsored by Delmarva Poultry Industry Inc.

(PCR) have been developed to improve detection and typing of salmonella. Recently, molecular methods have taken a great leap forward due to collection of massive amounts of DNA sequence data for pathogens like salmonella. This genomic data can be leveraged to make better and more specific typing and detection assays for salmonella. The species Salmonella enterica encompasses a diverse group of closely related bacteria that can be further divided into serovars, each of which may vary in their capability of infecting specific hosts, causing disease and becoming outbreak strains. Examples include generalists like Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium that can colonize many different animals and is virulent in a variety of hosts. However, severity of disease differs from host to host. S. typhimurium can cause gastroenteritis in humans and other animals, usually causes no symptoms or disease in adult poultry, but can cause a highly invasive and lethal typhoid like bacterimia in mice. S. Typhimurium has been isolated from many diverse food animals, such as swine, cattle and poultry, and products from each of these sources have caused foodborne outbreaks in humans. S. Enteritidis is similar in its ability to cause human disease; however, outbreaks of foodborne S. Enteritidis are usually associated with poultry, especially chickens, chicken eggs and their products. In chickens this serovar rarely causes disease, but it can col-

onize the reproductive tract of hens, leading to trans-ovarian transmission of S. Enteritidis to eggs and chicks. S. Kentucky is also often isolated from poultry; however it rarely causes disease in chickens and even more rarely causes foodborne outbreaks in humans, despite its high prevalence in chickens and chicken products. Finally, there are serovars that are often associated with a single source. Examples of these include S. Newport with cattle, Choloraseuis with swine and Typhi with humans. The reasons for these differences are reflected in the genetic variation between these serovars, which is not well understood. Consequently, salmonella genomics is under investigation to improve our understanding of the genetic differences responsible for so many different serovars and phenotypes. We can also use these differences to develop tools for detecting, identifying, studying and combating foodborne salmonella infections. Genomic studies of salmonella began with the sequencing of the whole S. Typhimurium LT2 genome, which was followed by sequencing of other strains and serovars. In addition to the genetic data produced by these studies, the sequences were used to make new tools to investigate salmonella. One of these was the DNA microarray. In order to construct DNA microarrays, the whole genome sequence was used to design

The Charting the Course poultry conference was added to the 2012 IPE/IFE educational programs to help provide industry leaders with a view to the current and upcoming challenges and opportunities facing our industry,” Cooper said. Breakout sessions will follow for the poultry meat and egg sections of the industry. The egg program will be co-sponsored by the United Egg Producers, along with USPOULTRY. In the poultry breakout session Adriaan Weststrate and David Nelson of Rabobank International will discuss “Global competitiveness: Drivers and issues for the future.” Other speakers and their topics include Doug Britton, Georgia Tech Research Institute, technology versus labor; Paul Pressley, USPOULTRY, management development and succession planning; Yvonne Vizzier Thaxton, University of Arkansas, social issues including animal welfare, the environment, food safety and employee welfare; and Don Conner, Auburn University, a university research. In the egg breakout session Dr. Ferry Leenstra of the Wageningen University in the Netherlands will address Global Competitiveness, with a view at lessons learned from the last 10 years and drivers and issues for the future. An additional egg session will examine the status of current production systems research. Speakers include Dr. Darrin Karcher, Michigan State University, housing alternatives and results; and Dr. Jeff Buhr, USDA Agricultural Research Service, food safety implications of various alternative production systems. Gene Gregory of the United Egg Producers will discuss the UEP/Humane Society of the United States agreement and what it means to the Industry; Tom Silva of J.S. West Milling Co. will speak on initial results from enriched colony housing. The 2012 IPE will be held Jan. 24-26, at the Georgia World Congress Center.

There are literally hundreds of ways to cook a turkey, according to Drusilla Banks, nutrition and wellness educator with the U of I Extension. “And each year, chefs create new recipes and techniques based on trendy regional ingredients and creative cooking methods,” she said. “Some are good, some are bad, and some are downright unsafe.” The Turkey for the Holidays web site is designed to help

busy cooks quickly find the information they need so they can avoid mistakes and problems. Thawing the turkey on the counter at room temperature is one of the more frequent and dangerous errors. At room temperature, bacteria on the turkey can grow rapidly when the outside portion of the bird begins to thaw. These bacteria can multiply to dangerously high levels, producing toxins that cooking may not destroy. One of the safest ways to thaw a turkey is in the refrigera-

WTO issues ruling on COOL GENEVA — The World Trade Organization has ruled that the U.S. Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) law violates WTO rules. The decision came in a ruling by a WTO dispute panel in support of complaints by Canada and Mexico that COOL violates international trade rules and harms agricultural commerce. The dispute panel found the U.S. labeling law “affords imported livestock treatment less favorable than that accorded to like domestic livestock” and thus violates trade agreements. The U.S. is likely to appeal the decision to the WTO Appellate Body. If the decision stands, analysts say the U.S. must amend the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946 and the COOL regulations to conform U.S. law to the WTO decision, or otherwise resolve the dispute with Canada and Mexico. Under the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946 retailers are required to notify their customers of the country of origin of muscle cuts and ground beef

(including veal), lamb, pork, chicken, goat; wild and farmraised fish and shellfish; perishable agricultural commodities; peanuts; pecans; ginseng; and macadamia nuts. The Food Marketing Institute had praise for the WTO decision and called for an end to the law. A statement by FMI’s regulatory counsel Erik Lieberman said, “The World Trade Organization recognized what the supermarket industry has known all along — that COOL is a protectionist law designed to make it more costly and difficult for retailers to sell imported foods.

COOL has forced the industry to spend tens of millions of dollars each year on unnecessary regulatory burdens all for little or no benefit to consumers.” “The COOL law will need to be repealed or rewritten in order to the U.S. to meet its obligations to global trading partners,” Lieberman stated. He added that FMI looks forward to working with Congress and USDA to develop an alternative system, “one that will provide useful information to consumers and put our nation in compliance with international trade agreements.”

tor, Banks said. “We need to allow about 24 hours of defrost time for every five pounds of turkey. So a 20pound turkey will take four to five days to thaw in the refrigerator. But it’s easy to get preoccupied with other things and forget to move the turkey from the freezer to the fridge in time to be sure it’s thawed out by . . . morning,” Banks said. Thawing the bird in cold water is an alternative, but that, too, requires a bit of advance planning. “Keep the wrapper on the turkey, and submerge it in a deep sink full of cold water,” Banks advises. “Allow about 30 minutes per pound to defrost a turkey in cold water — and be sure to change the water every 30 minutes to keep it cold enough to prevent bacterial growth.” The web site also includes some recipes for leftovers and recommendations on how long is too long to keep those leftovers. As dessert is served, it’s a good idea to put the leftover turkey and side dishes in the

refrigerator, Banks said. If roast turkey goes into the refrigerator within two hours after it comes out of the oven, it should be good for three to four days. Stuffing and gravy have a refrigerated shelf life of only one to two days before they may start to go bad. Many families, especially smaller households, may opt to buy ready-made dinners from a local restaurant or supermarket. Any carry-out leftovers should be eaten the next day at the latest, Banks said. “You just can’t be certain how the food was handled before you picked it up, or how long it may have been packed and waiting for you. By the time you pick up the food and get it home, serve it and enjoy a leisurely holiday dinner, there’s a good chance that more than two hours has elapsed. “So if you’re buying a readymade meal, the best rule is to buy no more than you and your guests can eat (at the holiday meal) — or at the latest, the next day,” Banks said.

primers and make PCR products of each of 4,600 unique full-length genes. These PCR products next were used to construct microarrays by printing them onto glass slides. These arrays were then used in various experiments, including surveying different salmonella serovars for gene content. These studies used the microarrays in comparative genomic hybridizations (CGH) analysis. This assay determines the presence or absence of genes in an unknown strain as compared to the control strain by hybridizing genomic DNA from a control strain and an unknown strain, each labeled with different colors, simultaneously to the microarray. The ratio of hybridization signals to a gene determines the presence or absence of that gene in the unknown strain as compared to the control strain. A

caveat to CGH of unsequenced strains is you can get presence or absence data only on genes in the control strain used to make the microarray, and cannot detect genes unique to the test strain. However, even with this limitation, the data gathered is very useful. The relationships of serovars and phylogeny of salmonella had previously been determined by Multi Locus Enzyme electrophoresis (MLEE) and sequencing of a few housekeeping genes. These experiments were done on a handful of representative isolates in the Salmonella Reference Collection C (SARC). This data split the salmonella into two species, S. enterica and S. bongori, with S. enterica being further divided into seven subspecies: I, II, IIIa, IIIb, IV, V, and VI. The approximately 1,500 serovars in subspecies I colonize warm-blooded animals, are re-

sponsible for most human illnesses and thus are the focus of most research. To investigate the genetics behind this phylogeny, analysis of DNA through CGH was used to determine differences in gene content between members of the different salmonella species, subspecies and serovars in the SARC. The analysis found that all salmonella have about 3,900 conserved genes, 500 of which are not found in any of the other genuses of Enterobacteriaciea. Salmonella enterica share an additional ~100 genes for a total core genome of approximately 4,000 genes. The subspecies vary by up to 200 to 300 additional genes, and serovars within subspecies I vary by a few dozen up to a few hundred serovar-specific genes. Interestingly, when this data was used to determine a phylogenetic tree, it resulted in a tree very similar to one

previously identified by analysis of MLEE data. However, through CGH, the genes that separate these groups are now defined, and many of these genes reflect the phenotypic differences between the bacteria. For example, when the genus salmonella splits from the other Enterobacteriaceae, the 500 salmonella specific genes include Salmonella Pathogenicity Island 1 (SPI1), which encodes a complex secretion apparatus that enables colonization of the digestive tract. Salmonella enterica have another set of genes that differentiates it from Salmonella bongori; these encode SPI2 and the ability to invade macrophages and defend against the immune system of warm-blooded animal hosts. It is almost certain that similar genetic differences like these determine variations in the phenotypes of host range, infectivity and virulence. In addition to helping un-

derstand the genetics and evolution of salmonella, this research can be used to develop tools for typing and detection of salmonella serovars. If we use this technique to further differentiate the members of Subspecies I serovars, we can determine genes or patterns of genes that are serovar-specific. These genes can then be used as markers to identify specific serovars that are associated with outbreaks or more dangerous infections. One of the goals was to develop an assay for determining salmonella serovar that was quicker, cheaper and more reliable than traditional serotyping. Traditional serotyping is slow (3-7 days), difficult, and expensive (~$40/isolate), and had a failure rate of about 8 percent. A collaboration with scientists at the Washington State Department of Health investigated this. The study began with a bioinformatics approach and analyzed the CGH data collected on various salmonella serovars to identify informative genes whose patterns of presence or absence help identify specific serovars. From this analysis, genes were selected that could differentiate between the 15 most prevalent serovars of human isolates. PCR assays were developed for each of these genes and tested on control strains. These assays were then combined into two multiplex PCR (m-PCR) assays for rapid analysis of clinical isolates. Each assay in the multiplex yielded an amplicon of a different size that could be separated and scored by gel electrophoresis. Testing of the assay showed that it identified more than 30 of the most prevalent clini-

AI led to jump in dried egg imports in Japan By Fawzi Taha & William Hahn

Special to Poultry Times

WASHINGTON — Animal disease outbreaks can have major trade impacts. USDA Economic Research Service analysis of the effects of the 2004 outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) H5N1-virus in Japan showed evidence of a willingness of Japanese consumers to substitute — for food safety reasons — processed dried egg products for fresh shell eggs. These changes in preference affect U.S. exports of shell eggs and egg products. ERS researchers divided Japan’s egg imports into shell eggs, nondried egg products and dried egg products. Fresh eggs are the most likely to carry the virus on the shell surface as well as inside, while dried egg products are produced through heating that kills the virus. Data on Japan’s egg imports

following the outbreak showed a change in demand in shell eggs and dried egg products. In the postHPAI period, Japanese importing firms viewed the two products as closer substitutes for each other. In addition, the demand for each class of products became more sensitive to price changes. Import demand for the safer dried egg products increased and import demand for the nondried egg product and shell eggs weakened. Despite reduced demand for shell eggs, shell egg imports still rose sixfold in 2005, due to the loss of Japanese layers to HPAI. The U.S. supplied the largest share — 38 percent — valued at $5.7 million. After 2006, as Japan’s layer flocks began to recover, shell egg imports decreased dramatically and imports of dried egg products rose. Within the dried-egg product category, demand for U.S. exports of dried egg whites increased from 6

percent of Japan’s egg imports in 2004 to 42 percent (worth $6.03 million) in 2007. By 2010, U.S. global export volumes of dried egg whites increased fourfold from 2004 (worth $13.17

million) and U.S. shipments to Japan rose more than twelvefold. The study has wide-ranging implications for global egg markets because it provided the first evidence for a possible substitution of

dried egg products for shell eggs. Fawzi Taha and William Hahn are with the USDA’s Economic Research Service in Washington, D.C.

rapidly. According to the International Energy Agency, world ethanol use increased by nearly 300 percent between 2000 and 2010, with consumption reaching more than 104 billion liters. Global ethanol trade nearly doubled during the same period, but at 5.9 billion liters in 2010, world trade is still a small share of total use. World demand for ethanol is expected to continue to increase in response to anticipated economic growth, rising oil prices, and the mandates in many countries to replace fossil fuel use with renewable energy sources. Brazil is in a good position to satisfy demand: sugarcane-based ethanol is one of the most efficient sources of biofuel per hectare, with a yield in liters of ethanol per hectare that is almost double that of corn-based ethanol, according to USDA. The U.S. and the European Union (EU) are two of the major consuming markets for Brazilian ethanol. The U.S. Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007 requires transportation fuel producers to use at least 136 billion liters of biofuels by 2022. The Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) provision established under EISA mandates minimum use of 57 billion liters of corn-based ethanol by 2015, up from about 49 billion liters in 2010. The RFS also requires the use of at least 80 billion liters of cellulosic and advanced biofuels (which includes ethanol from sugarcane and biodiesel) by 2022. The 54-cent per-gallon surcharge on imported ethanol is scheduled to expire at the end of 2011. If this happens, it may stimulate U.S. imports of Brazilian ethanol. The EU’s Renewable Energy Directive sets a mandatory minimum share of renewable energy in total fuel consumption in the transport sector of 10 percent per member state by 2020. While biodiesel is the

POULTRY TIMES, December 19, 2011

principal biofuel used in Europe, the European Commission estimates that its ethanol consumption could rise from less than 5 billion liters in 2010 to about 10 billion liters by 2020. Several other importing countries, including Japan, have energy mandates that encourage the use of agriculture-based ethanol in their transportation sectors.

Expansion uncertain Global ethanol production, concentrated in only a few producing countries, may not keep pace with rapidly growing demand. Concerns about food and fuel tradeoffs may limit some countries’ ability to increase ethanol production, particularly production of ethanol from grains. Based on USDA long-term projections, Brazil’s ethanol production is expected to rise 45 percent during the coming decade to 43.8 billion liters by 2020. However, Brazil’s ability to provide the bulk of the world’s import needs will depend on its domestic ethanol demand, world sugar and oil prices, Brazil’s currency exchange rate and the capacity of its infrastructure to move ethanol to ports. Growing domestic demand is certain to put pressure on Brazil’s export supply. Brazil is the world’s second largest ethanol consumer, behind the United States, and accounts for more than 30 percent of global ethanol consumption. Brazil’s domestic demand is projected to grow as sales of flex-fuel cars rise with increased income. The world price of sugar is an important determinant of Brazilian ethanol supply. When the sugar price is high, more sugarcane is used for sugar; lower sugar prices favor conversion of sugarcane to ethanol. In 2009-10, drought in Brazil led to a smaller sugarcane harvest, declining stocks and higher sugar import demand in major consuming countries such as India, China and Pakistan.

With higher international sugar prices, a larger share of the Brazilian sugarcane crop was allocated to sugar production. In late 2010, when the world sugar price fell to under 14 cents per pound from a 29-year high of 30 cents per pound earlier that year, the share of sugarcane used for ethanol rebounded. Although the ethanol blend requirement tends to insulate Brazil’s domestic ethanol prices from fluctuations in world oil prices, changes in the world price of oil affect the ethanol/gasoline price relationship in Brazil. When oil prices fall, ethanol demand weakens. Conversely, higher world oil prices encourage increased use of ethanol in Brazil’s rapidly expanding fleet of flex-fuel vehicles. Both real (adjusted for inflation) and nominal exchange rates have enormous effects on Brazil’s international competitiveness, export volumes, farm earnings and processing margins for distilleries and sugar-ethanol processing mills. Brazil’s currency, the real, appreciated in 2009, making Brazil’s ethanol exports more expensive and reducing the competitiveness of Brazil’s ethanol in the world market. Brazil’s ethanol exports slipped to 3.3 billion liters in 2009 and to 1.9 billion liters in 2010.

Infrastructure Brazil faces considerable infrastructure and transportation constraints along its ethanol supply chain. The bulk of ethanol is transported from processing plants to collection centers and then to ports by truck. Adequate and modern road infrastructure is thus critical to maintain competitiveness in the industry. Poor roads impose even higher costs on farmers located in the Center-West frontier, where new distilleries are being established. The average distance from the Center-West region to export ports is more than 600 miles. Large investments in mainte-

nance and expansion of road infrastructure are needed to keep up with the expected growth in demand and to lower delivery times and costs. Brazil’s state-owned oil company, PETROBRAS, plans to start building two ethanol pipelines by 2012 — a 715-mile-long pipeline from Goiás to the port of São Sebastião on the southeast coast and a 325-mile-long pipeline from Minas Gerais to the port in Rio de Janeiro. PETROBRAS estimates that the new pipelines, to be completed by 2016, will accommodate about 22 billion liters (doubling current transportation capacity) at about one-third the current cost of shipping ethanol by truck. The government has allocated $4.6 billion for improvements in port infrastructure by 2016.

Meeting demand? Several factors favor the ability of Brazilian ethanol producers to increase production of ethanol from sugarcane and fill future global ethanol needs. Brazil has large areas of arable savannas that could be brought into production of sugarcane without risk of deforestation. Brazil’s Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Food Supply estimates the scope for cropland expansion in Brazil at 119 million hectares, with 69 million hectares in savannas and 50 million hectares from pastureland conversion. According to USDA long-term projections, an additional 12 million hectares of Brazilian cropland will be brought into crop production during the next decade. Technological advances to boost sugarcane yields per hectare and efficiency gains in producing ethanol from sugarcane seem assured given the new technologies being generated by the Brazilian Corporation for

Agricultural Research. Brazil’s current yields of 90100 liters of ethanol per ton of sugarcane are projected to increase by an additional 80 percent during the next decade based on new technologies, including the use of crushed sugarcane stalks, or bagasse, for further processing of the sucrose content for ethanol. The Brazilian Economic Development Bank has allocated $22 billion for investments in 2011-14 to double the sector’s production capacity in the next decade. Plans for new investments in the construction of new distilleries will provide an additional 18 billion liters of ethanol production capacity in 2020, according to UNICA (the Brazilian sugarcane industry association). A number of other conditions will be necessary for Brazil to fulfill a large part of future global ethanol demand. Sugar and crude oil prices will need to remain at levels that will encourage increases in ethanol production beyond gains that can be realized through technological advances. Planned construction of pipelines and mill/port ethanol storage capacity investments must occur. The policy environment in which Brazil’s ethanol industry operates will also have a major influence on future production and investment trends. The Brazilian government announced in April 2011 that Brazil’s National Petroleum Agency will regulate the chain of production of ethanol, including exports, to treat ethanol as a “strategic fuel” and no longer as an agricultural commodity, in an effort to provide a stable and reliable supply of ethanol. An easing of the governmentmandated fuel alcohol content in gasoline would result in increased Brazilian sugar production and exports.

Butterball announces winners of art contest GARNER, N.C. — Butterball LLC recognized participants of its fourth annual “Celebrate Turkey” Art Contest during two ceremonies on Wed., Nov. 16. Butterball mascot, Buddy Butterball, along with company representatives visited participating Garner, N.C., elementary school teachers and students to announce the contest winners. Butterball invited third grade student groups at participating elementary schools to create turkey-themed artwork in celebration of Thanksgiving, using the artistic medium of their choice. Six classes from two Garner elementary schools — Timber Drive and Polenta participated in this year’s contest. “Through programs like the Art Contest, Butterball is able to help educate students in our community about the role of agriculture in the state of North Carolina,” said Rod Brenneman, president and CEO of Butterball LLC. “It is wonderful to see the creativity and team work involved in the student art projects, much like the collaborative team effort we experience at Butterball in the production of safe and healthy turkey products everyday.” During the ceremonies, students from each class were presented certificates and $3 coupons toward Butterball turkeys to share with their families during the Thanksgiving holiday. Winning students were awarded $20 coupons toward a Butterball turkey and will have their artwork displayed permanently in the memorabilia room at Butterball’s Garner headquarters. To help raise awareness of the nutrition and care involved in raising turkeys, Butterball representatives presented a display of turkey feeders, waterers, eggs, baby feed and bedding. Teachers of participating classes were also presented copies of Butterball’s fun and interactive “Celebrate Agriculture” Weekly Reader learning materials to help them continue classroom education of proper agriculture as it pertains to healthy animals, food and consumers, the company said. Military wives who participated in Butterball’s 2011 Thanksgiving cooking session with Butterball U judged this year’s Celebrate Turkey artwork on Tues., Nov. 15, at the company’s headquarters. Submissions were judged based on visual creativity, originality and how well the artwork incorporated the contest’s theme of celebrating turkey.

•Testing (Continued from page 20)

cal isolates of Salmonella enterica, representing about 75 percent of serovars found in human infections. This testing demonstrated that the method could be further developed into a clinical assay. To develop the assay into one that was clinically useful, modifications and improvements were made. First, more serovars had to be identified. Second, the assay procedure and analysis needed to be simplified to improve speed and reduce hands-on time. Third, the detection method and scoring had to be automated for speed and to minimize technical errors. To achieve the first goal, bioinformatics were again used to identify additional target genes for more clinically relevant serovars. To achieve the second goal, these were combined into a single m-PCR with primer sets for detecting 15 genes. Thus, set-up was much easier, with a single m-PCR reaction for each isolate that could be performed in a 96-well plate format. The third goal was reached by modifying the assay to produce fluorescently labeled PCR amplicons that could be detected by analysis on a standard capillary DNA sequencer. By including a labeled DNA ladder as a size standard, scoring could be completely automated. The end result was an assay that could identify 50 of the top clinical isolate serovars, could be set up in minutes with little hands-on time, could be done in a 96-well plate format making it highthroughput and had automated interpretation with a simple web program (SERO, Center for Public Health Informatics,

School of Public Health, University of Washington) which scored the output file from the ABI 3130xl sequencer software. The new automated highthroughput assay was named salmonella multiplex assay for rapid typing, or SMART. To test the new automated method and define patterns of genes detected for each serovar, approximately 10 isolates of each of the top 50 clinical salmonella serovars were tested. The assay successfully found patterns for these 50 salmonella serovars. The patterns were designated as SMART codes, created by concatenating the numbers of the amplicons detected for an isolate. Although a few serovars shared SMART codes, these could be successfully differentiated by pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) data. In these cases, the PFGE pattern of the unknown isolate was used to search the PulseNet PFGE database for each possible serovar. A match determined the correct serovar. In the rare event no match was found, traditional serotyping was completed, and the new SMART pattern was assigned to this serovar. To test the assay, a blind study was completed on all clinical isolates collected in 2007 by the Washington State Department of Health. The results of this blind test showed that more than 85 percent of isolates were correctly identified with the SMART codes previously defined. The majority of those not identified in the blind test were new codes not detected during the SMART code determination period and can be added to the database of codes. This results in a real accuracy

of > 95 percent. Overall, the SMART assay is automated, requires no specialized training, has minimal hands-on time, can be completed in < 24 hours and costs $1.48/isolate versus traditional serotyping which costs ~$40.00/isolate. These characteristics make the technique highly useful and would reduce the number of isolates requiring traditional serotyping by at least 90 percent. Genomic information can also be applied to detection assays by using bioinformatics to identify genes or sequences specific for salmonella serovars associated with foodborne outbreaks or dangerous strains. In collaboration with scientists at the University of Cork, Ireland, and the University of Delaware, we developed two such assays. These were both m-PCR assays that detected all Salmonella enterica through the salmonellaspecific oriC gene, which also serves as an internal PCR control. This was combined with specific PCR primers for S. Choleraesuis and Paratyphi C to create the first m-PCR assay. The other m-PCR assay added specific primers for S. Typhimurium and Heidelberg to the oriC internal control. Both m-PCR assays were further developed into quantitative real-time PCR (Q-RTPCR) assays to improve their sensitivity and allow the use of automated real-time PCR instruments. The assays were tested on spiked food samples including milk, cooked turkey, raw turkey and cheddar cheese. Following preenrichment in buffered peptone water supplemented with Novobiocin and selective enrichment with

Rappaport-Vassiliadis (RV) medium, both assays could detect salmonella and the specifically targeted serovars at =1 CFU/ml of milk or gram of solid food. This method of assay development could potentially be employed to make detection assays for any salmonella serovars or strains of interest, such as outbreak strains. In summary, genomic data on pathogens like salmonella can be used to make applied and practical assays for identification and typing. Through the use of advanced high-through-

put DNA sequencing methods and the application of nextgeneration sequencing methods, ever-increasing amounts of genomic data will be collected and stored in public databases. This genomic data can then be used to develop new assays to meet the challenges these pathogens pose to human health, animal health and food safety.

Ark. Foodbank receives donation of turkeys LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Six hundred Honeysuckle White ® turkeys have been donated to the Arkansas Foodbank by turkey producer Cargill, through a partnership between the Poultry Federation and the foodbank. This special partnership started four years ago to help the foodbank distribute turkeys to the food pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers and other programs that serve hungry Arkansans, the groups noted. For more than 20 years, the Poultry Federation office in Little Rock has donated more than 280,000 pounds of turkeys to numerous central Arkansas charitable organizations to assist delivery of Thanksgiving meals to the hungry. “Once again, Cargill’s generous gift of turkeys this holiday season has such a positive impact within the Central Arkansas community,” said Marvin Childers, president of the Poultry Federation. “We are pleased to help provide muchneeded protein to our hungry neighbors, especially with a product we proudly produce. By partnering with the Arkansas Foodbank, who in turn partners with agencies that feed the hungry every day, we are able to use their existing infrastructure for distribution to hungry Arkansans.” Foodbank Executive Director Phyllis Haynes said the charity relies on the federation to help with holiday meals, which may be a struggle for families that need food pantry help. “We are so grateful for the

partnership with the Poultry Federation,” she said. “As you know, the number of people needing help has grown since the economy faltered, and childhood hunger is a serious and growing problem in Arkansas. The federation’s generous gift of turkeys will benefit families that really need the help.” Honeysuckle White is a partner with Feeding America and partners with them to help feed 2 million people in need. More information, assistance in turkey preparation, includ-

ing holiday meal planning, as well as kids’ activities can be obtained at http://www.honeysucklewhite.com. In 2010, Arkansas ranked third nationwide in turkey production raising 28 million turkeys and producing more than 548 million pounds; with a production value of $340 million, according to the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. More information can also be obtained from the Poultry Federation at http://www.thepoultryfederation.com.

AMERICAN EGG BOARD HOTLINE AEB Hotline appears regularly in Poultry Times and provides an update on programs and services provided for egg producers by the American Egg Board. Details on any item mentioned may be obtained by contacting AEB at 1460 Renaissance Dr., Park Ridge, Ill. 60068. Phone: 847-296-7043. l AEB recently conducted another successful Good Egg Project Community Breakfast alongside Northwest Egg Farmers. More than 700 people in need were fed in Seattle. More than 400 people gathered at the Filipino Community Center to enjoy a hearty breakfast and Good Egg Project activities while another 374 women received the remaining food at their local shelter nearby. Attendees commented on how grateful they were for the food and how much they enjoyed the Good Egg Project pledge sign, Incredible Egg chair and Chef Jeffrey Saad, which are always big hits. The Northwest Egg Farmers made the event a true success by donating more than 70,000 eggs to Feeding America, including more than 60,000 eggs to Seattle’s largest food bank, Food Lifeline, and 10,000 eggs to Second Harvest in Kenneweck, Wash.! FoodLine’s CEO Linda Nageotte expressed sincere gratitude to have the support of their local egg farmers in the fight against hunger, especially providing foods that contain high-qual-

ity protein, like eggs. l This year, eggs basked in the media spotlight. Since July, news about the lower cholesterol egg has taken over long-lead magazines and has even made experts, such as Dr. Oz, bust the cholesterol myth and expand on the many health benefits of eggs, as demonstrated in the Sept. 12 issue of Time magazine. AEB’s News Bureau impressions totaled more than 405 million, exceeding its goal by 84 percent. l Chef Jeffrey Saad and eggs continue to be a perfect match. Saad is currently filming Season 3 of Cooking Channel’s “United Tastes of America,” and is publishing a cookbook, “Jeffrey Saad’s Global Kitchen, Recipes without Borders,” set to release March 2012. Eggs appear on the cover of his cookbook and have their own chapter, “Eggs: The Protein Powerhouse,” along with 10 recipes. l Every two years, AEB surveys the U.S. egg processors to update their listing in the Buyers’ Guide. This year’s edition is available with a new section dedicated to egg product nutrient figures and specifications and is specifically made available for food manufacturers, bakeries and foodservice operators to easily obtain the product and company information to meet their purchasing requirements. This listing is also available online at AEB.org/food-manufacturers/egg-product-buyers-guide.

Vt. artist: I’ll fight Chick-fil-A for my kale The Associated Press

MONTPELIER, Vt. — A folk artist expanding his home business built around the words “eat more kale” says he’s ready to fight root-to-feather to protect his phrase from what he sees as an assault by Chickfil-A, which holds the trademark to the phrase “eat mor chikin.” Bo Muller-Moore uses a hand silkscreen machine to apply his phrase, which he calls an expression of the benefits of local agriculture, on T- and sweat shirts. But his effort to protect his business from copycats drew the attention of

Chick-fil-A, the Atlanta-based fast-food chain that uses ads with images of cows that can’t spell displaying their own phrase on message boards. In a letter, a lawyer for Chick-fil-A said MullerMoore’s effort to expand the use of his “eat more kale” message “is likely to cause confusion of the public and dilutes the distinctiveness of Chickfil-A’s intellectual property and diminishes its value.” Chick-fil-A, which trails only Louisville, Ky.-based KFC in market share in the chicken restaurant chain industry, has a long history of

guarding its trademark, and the letter listed 30 examples of attempts by others to coop the use of the “eat more” phrase that were withdrawn after Chick-fil-A protested. The Oct. 4 letter ordered MullerMoore to stop using the phrase and turn over his web site, eatmorekale.com, to Chick-fil-A. Muller-Moore, 38, of Montpelier, says he won’t do that. “Our plan is to not back down. This feels like David versus Goliath. I know what it’s like to protect what’s yours in business,” he said. So he has enlisted the help of Montpelier lawyer Daniel

USDA proposes rule to streamline generic labeling approval process WASHINGTON — USDA’s Food Safety & Inspection Service is proposing a new rule that will allow establishments to label a broader range of products without first submitting the label to FSIS for approval, should it become final. Under the proposal, FSIS will continue to verify that labels are accurate, not misleading, and in compliance with all labeling features. This rule is expected to benefit consumers because it will get new products into the marketplace sooner while still ensuring that they are not misbranded. Also, by making the label approval process more convenient and cost-effective, the industry, especially smaller producers, is expected to benefit from the rule. “It is important that we make the labeling process more effective and efficient, while still ensuring consumers have the best information available when shopping for food,” said Dr. Elisabeth Hagen, USDA undersecretary for food safety.

The rule proposes to modify the agency’s generic label approval process. Under the proposal, the generic label approval process would allow companies to use new labels or modify labels without first submitting such labels to FSIS. Under the proposed generic approval process, all mandatory label features would still need to comply with FSIS regulations. The proposed rule is available on the FSIS website at http://www.fsis.usda.gov/ regulations_&_policies/Proposed_Rules/ index.asp. The comment period will end on Feb. 3, 2012, and must be submitted through the federal eRulemaking portal at http://www. regulations.gov, or by mail to USDA, FSIS, OPPD, RIMD, Docket Clearance Unite, Patriots Plaza III, Rm. 8-164, 355 E St., S.W.., Washington, D.C. 20024-3221. All items submitted by mail or electronic mail must include the agency name and docket number FSIS-2005-0016.

Richardson and the intellectual property clinic at the University of New Hampshire School of Law’s Intellectual Property and Transaction Clinic. “Bo’s is a very different statement. It’s more of a philosophical statement about local agriculture and communitysupported farmers markets,” Richardson said. “At the end of the day, I don’t think anyone will step forward and say they brought an ‘eat more kale’ shirt thinking it was a Chickfil-A product.” Chick-fil-A spokesman Don Perry said the company does not comment on pending legal matters. Muller-Moore, who describes himself as a folk artist who earns a living working as a foster parent for an adult with special needs, said he started using the phrase “eat more kale” in 2000. A farmer friend who grows kale, a leafy vegetable that grows well in Vermont and is known for its nutritional value, asked Muller-Moore to make three T-shirts containing the phrase for his family for $10 each. A few weeks later, the friend told Muller-Moore that people kept asking for the shirts. The phrase helped him get his silkscreen business going, which he later expanded through the Internet. Now, he prints “eat more kale” on hooded sweatshirts too. And he has the words printed on bumper stickers that are common throughout Central Vermont. Five years ago, MullerMoore said, he received a

similar cease-and-desist letter from Chick-fil-A, telling him to stop using the phase. A pro bono lawyer traded a handful of letters with Chickfil-A on his behalf. After the letters stopped, Muller-Moore assumed the issue had been decided in his favor and kept making the products. But as his business grew, Muller-Moore decided to protect the phrase that became his unofficial trademark. He filed an application last summer with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect “eat more kale.” The application is pending. Vermont Law School professor Oliver Goodenough, who specializes in intellectual and property law, said the kale versus chikin fight reminded him of a case two years ago when a Morrisville micro brewer that makes a beer called “Vermonster” ran afoul of the Monster energy drink company. That case was settled when the makers of Vermonster agreed never to go into the energy drink business. Goodenough said there was little likelihood consumers would confuse kale with chicken. “This looks a bit like an example of over-enthusiasm for brand protection,” he said. “There are (law) firms in the United States that take this over-enthusiasm for brand protection seriously and believe the more they can scare away the better. If folks aren’t deeply committed to this and it’s a funny byproduct, maybe they won’t fight it.”
