Early warning indicators for hock burn in broiler flocks
Hock burn is a common disease of broiler chickens affecting flock welfare and farmer income. Here we use hierarchical logistic regression (HLR) models to identify risk factors for hock burn usingExpand

Broiler chickens can benefit from machine learning: support vector machine analysis of observational epidemiological data
TLDR
We report the use of support vector machine learning to identify the features associated with hock burn on broiler farms, using routinely collected farm management data. Expand
