AVPA is a professional body dedicated to the advancement of knowledge in poultry disease and husbandry. It incorporates a Poultry Special Interest Group of the Australian Veterinary Association. Membership is available to individuals and groups working in or interested in any veterinary aspect of poultry.
The AVPA was formed about four decades ago. The goal was to provide a forum where veterinarians working with poultry in Australia could meet and exchange views. It was also intended to represent the health and food safety issues of the poultry industry to government and industry research bodies. It was quickly realised that the model of a professional association open only to veterinarians was not useful in such a small industry and one with a particular need for a close relationship with the research community. As a result, in the 1970s membership became available to anyone with an interest in poultry health and the association prospered. New Zealand always has had a few members and that was recognised in the recent change from Australian to Australasian.
As much as anything, membership of AVPA allows the building of relationships across the wider community of people with an interest in poultry health. AgVet suppliers and vaccine manufacturers not only support us financially, but become part of the group and are available to members for consultations about their products and to advise future products we may need.
Researchers find the interaction with industry valuable as a feedback mechanism and to keep in touch with the commercial world of poultry production. This, in turn, can help them make applications for funding that are more relevant and so have a better chance of success.
For government and industry bodies, membership permits an efficient way of tapping into the industry for information and also to disseminate their point of view.
And finally, for the clinicians it is a forum to communicate with one another, build relationships of friendship and cooperation, discuss problems and coordinate an industry approach and to interact upwards into the research community and suppliers as a resource of technical knowledge.
We welcome membership applications from anyone with an interest in poultry health and they will find a friendly and lively group and are certain to enjoy the two scientific meetings we run each year.

ABT International Traders trading as LED DOWNUNDER is an industry leading privately owned LED Lighting Manufacturer and Sourcing Provider for LED, the best
efficient Lighting Source available in the world today.
The LED is based on the semiconductor diode. When a diode is forward biased (switched on), electrons are able to recombine with holes within the device, releasing
energy in the form of photons. This effect is called electroluminescence and the color of the light (corresponding to the energy of the photon) is determined by the
energy gap of the semiconductor. An LED is usually small in area (less than 1 mm 2), and integrated optical components are used to shape its radiation pattern and
assist in reflection. LEDs present many advantages over incandescent light sources including lower energy consumption, longer lifetime, improved robustness,
smaller size, faster switching, and greater durability and reliability. However, they are relatively expensive and require more precise current and heat management
than traditional light sources. Current LED products for general lighting are more expensive to buy than fluorescent lamp sources of comparable output.
Solid state devices such as LEDs are subject to very limited wear and tear if operated at low currents and at low temperatures. Many of the LEDs produced in
the 1970s and 1980s are still in service today. Typical lifetimes quoted are 25,000 to 100,000 hours but heat and current settings can extend or shorten this time
A single kilowatt-hour of electricity will generate 1.34 pounds (610 g) of CO2 emissions. Assuming the average light bulb is on for 10 hours a day, a single 40-watt
incandescent bulb will generate 196 pounds (89 kg) of CO2 every year. The 13-watt LED equivalent will only be responsible for 63 pounds (29 kg) of CO2 over the same
time span. A building’s carbon footprint from lighting can be reduced by 68% by exchanging all incandescent bulbs for new LEDs in warm climates. In cold climates,
the energy saving may be lower, since more heating would be needed to compensate for the lower temperature.
LEDs are also non-toxic unlike the more popular energy efficient bulb option: the compact fluorescent a.k.a. CFL which contains traces of harmful mercury. While the
amount of mercury in a CFL is small, introducing less into the environment is preferable.
LED Downunder offers the following ranges of products:
LED Floodlights 10w-220w,
LED High Bay Lights 10w-220w,
LED Downlights 3w – 60w
LED Strip Bars

New England Exhibition Poultry Association (NEEPA) is a regional poultry club that encompassses an area from the NSW north coast inland as far as Narrabri north to Tenterfield and south to Tamworth..
The Club was the brainchild of Les Bushell from Glen Innes who had the desire to stage a major show on a grand scale and with an extensive prize list. Following several meetings between interested fanciers in the New England region the Inaugural Show was held in September 1991 at Glen Innes. The Show continued to attract a growing number of entries in the ensuing years and also began its own magazine, “Chicken Chat” which is a 32 page A5 booklet now published 8 times per year primarily during the height of the showing season. Chicken Chat was originally a newsletter for NEEPA’s members and exhibitors at the Annual Show however it has grown to such an extent that currently there are nearly 300 subscribers from all around Australia and is in its 15th year of publication.
Following a number of requests by breeders regarding sourcing stock and individual fanciers it was decided to create an Annual Year Book containing useful information for fanciers and people new to the fancy. In 1993 the first Year Book was produced also being an A5 black and white booklet. The original book version listed the breeds under their respective category with breeders listed under each breed. An alphabetical list of the breeders appeared at the back of the book which readers could cross reference.
Since that time the book has been refined and improved to include an alphabetical list of all known Clubs and their respective Secretary and contact details, a calendar of events, show results, Club Report section, judging panel and pictorial pages. The latter has proved the major attraction for the Year Book especially after moving to full colour in 1998. The first full colour Year Book featured 6 pages consisting of about 80 photos while the current edition boasts 12 pages and around high quality 310 pictures of winners from shows all over Australia. The categorising of individual breeds has been improved too with each breed listed under its respective category and the list of breeders listed thereunder as per normal but each breeder has their State in brackets included therewith making the life simpler for the reader.
The NEEPA Club holds its Annual Show on the 3rd weekend in July with the Saturday being judging day followed that evening by the presentation dinner and distribution of an extensive range of trophies. Originally these were always silverware and hence the motto “The Silver Show of the North” however this has varied in recent years but one unique tradition which has not is the presentation of a Sportscoat to the Bird of Show winner from the previous year similar to the green jacket presented to the US Open golf winner. The coat is also embroidered with the year won and the annual dinner usually sees a number of these scattered throughout the audience. Typically around $2500 worth of cash and trophies are distributed on the Saturday night. The Show was originally held in Glen Innes up until 1996 but moved to Uralla after a majority of members resided in that area or nearby vicinity and made the task of setting up the pens a less arduous job. The Club obtained a loan to build a new pavilion and used the profits from Chicken Chat, the Year Book and its Merchandising Sales to repay this loan completing this ahead of schedule and now boasts one of the best poultry pavilions in Australia. The next step is to fully concrete the floor which is expected to be done in stages in the coming years. The show regularly attracts a full house of around 800 entries.
Membership of NEEPA is just $5 and entitles you to discounted entry fees as well as the usual voting privileges at meetings, etc. Memberships can be paid to:
