Survey of Poultry Carcass Condemnations in Abattoirs of West Azerbaijan Province (North West of Iran)
ΔΕΝ ΥΠΑΡΧΕΙ ΠΕΡΙΛΗΨΗ ΣΤΑ ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΑ
Post mortem inspection records of poultry carcasses at 11 abattoirs in West Azerbaijan province, from March 20, 2008 to March 20, 2015 were used to investigate the prevalence of poultry condemnation. The daily condemnation records were used as the sources of data. In this study 171,297,886 poultry were slaughtered and 1,580,570 (0.92 %) poultry carcasses were condemned. Septicemia (25.7%) and Cachexia (34.6%) were the most common reasons for the condemnation and included 60.3% of the total condemnation. The financial loss as a result of the condemnation of poultry carcasses was estimated as high as 3,731,905 USD within the present study. If the local producers get acquainted with these facts and via extension educational programs the carcass condemnation and economical losses in industrial slaughterhouses could be reduced.
