Together attendees shared expertise on practical field issues
EDINBURGH, Scotland. – On Oct. 10 and 11, Aviagen® SAU customers from throughout Portugal and bordering areas of Spain gathered for the first time in Coimbra, Portugal – one of a series of four meetings launched at the end of 2017 for Ross® customers in Spain, Portugal and Morocco.
Intended for customers with businesses geographically close to one another, the meetings are organized in small, intimate groups, which are the ideal settings to exchange thoughts and information on current challenges. Presented by the Aviagen SAU technical service team, the topics all centered on the latest practical advice for optimizing flock performance, health and welfare.
Customers engaged in lively discussions on the following issues:
- Aviagen SAU state-of-the-art facilities
- Late-breaking advice on broiler and breeder management
- Benefits of sexing in farm and processing plants
- Optimizing health through better nutrition and timing of feedings
- Biosecurity to protect birds against harmful pathogens
Luis Canela Urízar, Aviagen SAU’s area sales and technical manager, explains the mutual benefits of the SAU customer meetings. “Through these meetings, we aim to give customers useful information that they can immediately apply to their own daily operations, while at the same time providing them an environment to interact with one another and bring to the table their own knowledge and viewpoints. We look forward to future meetings with our valued customers throughout the region.
