The U.S. Poultry & Egg Assn. (USPOULTRY) announced that it is introducing two new online training program modules: “Gait Scoring Essentials for Broilers” and “Gait Scoring Essentials for Turkeys.”
These modules are in addition to the organization's existing catalog of on-demand training resources that are available in USPOULTRY's Learning Management System (LMS).
The modules offer practice in evaluating gait scoring in broilers and turkeys. Gait scoring is a standard evaluation of wellness in many animal welfare programs. These examples are based on the National Chicken Council and National Turkey Federation animal welfare guidelines and are useful practice tools for poultry welfare officers, caretakers and auditors, USPOULTRY said.
Both modules are self-paced and interactive and have been made obtainable with the help of poultry industry members.
The modules are available in the LMS and are free to USPOULTRY members. The USPOULTRY LMS can be accessed by visiting www.uspoultry.org/training.

USPOULTRY represents the complete spectrum of today's poultry industry, and its mission is to progressively serve member companies through research, education, communication and technical assistance.
