ADAS to discontinue poultry research in UK
As of the end of September 2007, ADAS will no longer be
involved in poultry research, however, it will continue its poultry consultancy
service. This news follows the announcement made in February that ADAS was

â€œWe regret the loss of our poultry research capability, and the decision
has been taken purely on commercial grounds, due to a decline in research
throughput. However, we are consolidating our poultry strategic consultancy and
policy delivery capability, where we are experiencing a strong and increasing
demand for our expertise," said managing director Colin Speller.
