California’s Defeat of Newcastle Disease Offers Lessons for Poultry Industry
In the summer of 2020, While the United States was struggling to understand COVID-19, California succeeded in ending a major poultry disease outbreak. Stopping virulent Newcastle disease took two years and led to 1.2 million birds being killed. But the effort succeeded through a mix of public outreach and on-site disease response. “We wanted to eradicate the disease.

Global Spread of Salmonella Enteritidis via Centralized Sourcing and International Trade of Poultry Breeding Stocks
A pandemic of Salmonella enterica serotype Enteritidis emerged in the 1980s due to contaminated poultry products. How Salmonella Enteritidis rapidly swept through continents remains a historical puzzle as the pathogen continues to cause outbreaks and poultry supply becomes globalized. We hypothesize that international trade of infected breeding stocks causes global spread of the pathogen. By integrating over 30,000 Salmonella Enteritidis genomes from 98 countries during 1949–2020 and international trade of live poultry from the 1980s to the late 2010s, we present multifaceted evidence that converges on a high likelihood, global scale, and extended protraction of Salmonella Enteritidis dissemination via centralized sourcing and international trade of breeding stocks.

Saudi Arabia: Poultry and Products Annual
In 2020, Post estimates poultry production in Saudi Arabia was 900,000 metric tons (MT) with that total jumping to 910,000 MT in 2021 based on official data released by the Saudi Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture (MEWA) as well as discussions with major poultry producers. According to MEWA, the Kingdom's domestic production reached a 60 percent self-sufficiency level in 2020, and there are plans to collaborate with the private sector to increase that level to more than 85 percent by 2030. Complete export data for major exporting countries for Jan-May 2021 shows that Saudi Arabia imported 304,564 MT of chicken meat, an increase of about 34 percent over the same period last year. However, the import ban that the Saudi government imposed in June 2021 on several Brazilian exporting facilities is expected to reduce total chicken meat imports to 520,000 MT in 2021, a decrease of nearly 16 percent compared to 617,930 MT in 2020.

South Africa: Poultry and Products Annual
Post forecasts that chicken meat production will increase by five percent in 2022 on industry investment and lowered input costs. Chicken meat consumption is forecast to strengthen by three percent due to economic recovery and rising costs of substitute proteins. Imports will decrease by three percent due largely to increased tariffs, yet this impact will be dampened by recovering supply chains and strengthening demand that cannot be met through domestic production. Post forecasts that South Africa’s chicken meat exports for 2022 will increase by six percent as exports recover from a downturn in 2021.

The USDA’s September World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) raised projected U.S. corn ending stocks in 2021/22, primarily due to higher forecast corn production from the National Agricultural Statistics Service’s (NASS) September Crop Production report. As a result, the outlook for the U.S. corn market in 2021/22 is for higher supplies, raised use, and lower prices—although projected prices remain high by recent-historical standards.
