    Industry and Solutions'. He narrated that global competition, emergence of new and

    unforeseen diseases and food safety are major challenges for the poultry Industry. Poultry

    diseases will remain a major challenge to the industry. Once an outbreak of a given disease

    occurs, it can explode into an epidemic and may have a significant negative effect on trade in a

    specific country, a continent or even globally.Emerging diseases in poultry like Chicken Anaemia Virus (CAV), Infectious Bursal

    Disease (IBD), Avian Influenza (AI), Marek's Disease (MD), Myelocytomatosis (ALV-J), Fowl

    Adenoviruses (EDS, IBH, HHPS), Reo-viruses are seen. He suggested for proper Avian

    Influenza surveillance and availability of diagnostic facilities by strengthening Laboratories

    and emphasized upon Food safety measures particularly relating to diseases of zoonotic

    importance which are to be carried out. He told that Problems related to food safety due to

    infections with different Salmonella serovars and Campylobacter sps, which are the leading

    cause of zoonotic enteric infections worldwide, are to be taken care of. Since these are mainly

    transmitted by contaminated food, good hygienic practice protocols should be prepared and

    strictly followed in all stages of production. Effective bio-security measures like vaccination,

    medication, nutrition, environmental cause and disinfection should be ensured in commercial

    farms.

    Presentation -2: The presentation was made by Dr. B. S. Rao on Opportunities in Poultry

    Farming. He emphasized on production of organic poultry meat which can fetch higher price to

    the producers. Transporting the poultry products from rural area and to market at urban areas

    is problem in Odisha. Proper storage facility and infrastructures and minimum support price

    for poultry product is necessary. Cold storage centre should be constructed by involving

    State level

    private people. He also suggested for dividing the state into 5 zones and to fix a target for

    backyard poultry development. The products can be marketed in urban area by involving

    Role of eggs in human nutrition. He spoke that India ranked 3 in egg production in the world

    but consumption was much low compared to other developed countries. He told that egg was a

    complete food having all nutrition such as protein, vitamin and the cheapest source of protein.

    He compared egg with vegetable protein i.e. kidney bean and opined that in order to get the

    protein available in two eggs, which cost 9/- the same amount of protein can be availed from

    kidney bean by spending 50/-. He viewed that egg is a vegetarian food as chicken are fed with

    vegetarian feeds.

    Presentation-4: The presentation was made by Shri A.K Sharda on Poultry Entrepreneurship in

    Odisha, Scope and Opportunity. He appreciated the initiatives taken by Odisha Government to

    create an enabling environment for Poultry Entrepreneurship. He said that Odisha achieved

    8.78% GDP growth during 2014-15, 20% higher than India's GDP growth rate, and is poised to

    grow at around 12% by year 2020. Poultry contributes to 15% of total food energy and 5% of

    dietary protein. Poultry Industry growth rate is 10%-12% per annum compared to a National

    GDP growth rate of around 7%. India is the 3rd largest producer of eggs with annual production thof 57 billion eggs & 5 largest producer of poultry meat with a production of 2.5 million tonnes of

    Poultry meat. 100 % FDI is permitted in food processing sector which includes Poultry. He

    pointed out that one time booster of 75 lakh subsidy for commercial Layer has added almost 10

    lacs Birds in one year. He felt that bridging consumption gaps between NIN/ NAC

    recommended 180 eggs & 11kg per year per capita when compared with current consumption

    patterns (52 Eggs & 2.5 kg of poultry meat) presents huge opportunity. Matching of

    recommended standards in egg and meat consumption has the potential to create 10 million

    jobs in the country.

    delivery model which enables gains of modern science and technology to percolate down to

    remote village households at the very bottom of the pyramid, through traditional practice of

    village vending. During last five years Keggfarms and associated organizations have supplied

    over 10 crores of Kuroiler birds in 19 States across India. He felt that Keggs farm can supply

    feed and health support and the farm performance is monitored on a daily basis with Suguna th

    field staff by checking the health of the birds, feed intake, growth and mortality levels. In 6

    week, the birds are weighed and are ready to be sold by Suguna. Farmers are paid a handsome

    to the next level of vision for energizing rural India benefiting the country, farmer and the

    company. He also said that Suguna was operating with more than 500 farmers engaged in

    Unhealthy practice and feeding harmful ingredients are going to create hazard, for which farmers need to be sensitized, otherwise the growth in sector could be jeopardized.

    Raising multi-species of poultry need to be carefully planned. OUAT, ICAR should make research to develop viable breed for rearing in backyard.

    Skill up-gradation of poultry workers and farmers should be taken up at regular level. Poultry Industry and Department need to take appropriate steps for training of farmers.

    Presently, two eggs per week/ student are supplied under MDM Scheme in Primary schools, which should be enhanced to 4 eggs in a week. Eggs can also be given to lactating mothers, old age homes

    and hospitals.

    Input subsidy on maize and soya, which are major constituent of Poultry feed may be considered.

    Duck farming requires low investment and locally available feeds can be used for feeding ducks. Government support for duck farming may be given. Duck farming can be promoted in a larger

    scale under different livelihood programs.

    One dedicated hatchery for production of ducklings in KBK should be operated.

    Vaccination for poultry should be done regularly. Community Vaccinators should be trained at district level to ensure vaccination.
