Editorial

 

Welcome to the first edition of Lohmann Information in its new format. As primary breeder of laying hens, Lohmann Tierzucht GmbH continues the tradition to publish selected papers from the area of applied life science, as a service to customers, friends and the general public. Within the context of global human nutrition, we will focus on new developments in poultry breeding, nutrition, health and welfare. Articles on general issues and other species will also be included from time to time.
Prof. Werner Bessei joined the editorial board as co-editor. He recently retired from his position at the University of Hohenheim, where he specialized in poultry behavior. He is widely known as senior vice president of the World Poultry Science Association (WPSA) and as member of the editorial board of several scientific journals.
The archive with full articles published since 2006 and titles since 1979 can be accessed via the link Lohmann-Information.com.
