In a Linkedin group "Layers in Argentina" discussed the importance of daily and weekly records. Where the observation was one of the key control measures in the prevention of causes that impact the performance of the flock, followed by an appropriate capture and storage of records. From these practices can nurture and create an early warning system behavior in the house, and follow trends of the actual measurements compared with the standard of each strain can be generated to facilitate early warning analysis to obtain a more accurate diagnosis.

Veterinarians, farmers want faster and more accurate diagnostics
Study shows almost 60 percent are waiting three days to a week for test resultsSpeed and accuracy are the key features that veterinarians and farmers want from diagnostic tests, according to a Europe-wide survey commissioned by global biotechnology company Life Technologies Corporation.
More than 334 individuals from eight countries were asked about their current usage and knowledge of diagnostics, and asked what they would like to see in the future. Greater accuracy was the number one need among veterinarians, mentioned by 37 percent of those surveyed, followed by more speed (22 percent), cost savings (16 percent) and greater confidence in the results (8 percent).
The survey showed that most test results are currently available in one to three days, but a significant proportion still have to wait three to six days for results (39 percent) or even more than six days (20 percent). Only 10 percent currently get their results within 24 hours.
Porcine Reproductive & Respiratory Syndrome, Influenza A and Salmonella topped the list for swine tests; and avian influenza was by far the most commonly tested disease in poultry.
