Livestock are vital to the livelihoods of the world’s rural poor, and vaccines are a key component of livestock disease prevention and control worldwide. Vaccines have a major role in protecting animal health and public health, reducing animal suffering, enabling efficient production of food animals, and greatly reducing the need for antibiotics to treat food and companion animals. However, these important benefits can be seriously compromised by poor vaccine storage and handling.

This report describes a trial in three Indonesian provinces that developed a niche market for poultry products produced on farms that implemented appropriate biosecurity activities. The aim of the trail was to test whether a market chain could provide incentives for all chain participants to produce and market these ‘Healthy Farm’ products. The trial showed that supermarket consumers were prepared to pay a premium price for meat and eggs produced on approved biosecure farms; and that the existing market can be used to improve biosecurity in smallholder poultry farms in Indonesia.

Improving smallholder cattle productivity and profitability is a recognised pathway to help alleviate rural poverty. These proceedings represent results of research from three ACIAR-funded projects that operated predominantly in Cambodia between 2007 and 2012. The three projects focused on cattle health and husbandry, livestock movements and spread of trans-boundary diseases, and improved feeding systems.

This manual, originally published in 2002, describes the procedures needed to produce and test live, thermostable avirulent I-2 vaccine against Newcastle disease (ND) of poultry. It has formed the basis of practical training workshops for scientists and technicians in vaccine-producing laboratories in Africa and Asia. This second edition, updated on the basis of practical experience over the last decade, has been published due to increasing interest in local production of ND vaccine.

Livestock disease constrains livelihood development in the Mekong countries through loss of animals and their productivity, restriction of trade within and between countries, and the diseases that can be transmitted from livestock to humans. The term biosecurity describes the methods used to contain these diseases and prevent their transmission.
