AMES, Iowa - Iowa State University animal scientists are collaborating on a study of poultry genetics and management to help chickens deal with increased heat. A $4.7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI) is funding the five-year project.

It would be of value to know if embryonic heat stress (applied during the incubation process) might precondition the future broilers and layers to better withstand high temperatures during their productive lives.

DEAR SCIENTISTS,

THIS INDEED IS A WELCOME DEVELOPMENT AS THE STRONG INITIATIVE HAS BEEN TAKEN BY THE US GOVERNMENT TO FINANCE THE RESEARH. HOWEVER, I FEEL ELATED THAT, CONSIDERATION HAS ALSO BEEN GIVEN TO THE CHICKEN BREEDS NATIVE TO AFRICA FOR THEIR "GENETIC SIGNATURES" IN RELATION TO HEAT REACTIONS.

I WISH YOU SUCCESS AS YOU EMBARK ON THIS STUDY WITH GOD'S GUIDANCE ALL THROUGH. AMEN.

BEST WISHES.

ABIODUN O. WINNIRAN,mnimn.

I'm an Associate Prof. in the department of animal science, faculty of agric sc. University of Gezira Sudan, I did a lot of research work solving or alleviating the problem of heat stress in the tropics and I;ve a promissing findings which I tried in the field and brought back good impacts specially in open system of poultry keeping in Sudan. I hope that if I can join this group doing research on heat stress in poultry

best wishes
