Hubbard technical seminar in Morocco
Hubbard recently held a technical seminar for the Moroccan hatcheries and
producers entitled "Better production to gain more".
The seminar gathered the vast majority of the hatcheries and producers
resulting in many discussions.
During the seminar several subjects were addressed. An overview on the
global poultry market was given by Jean-FranÃ§ois Hamon, Hubbard's business
director for the region, detailing the major increase in costs of raw materials.
This pushes the industry for a further improvement in productivity to keep the
cost price as low as possible.
Dr Eric Bonjour, director veterinary services for Hubbard, talked about the
implementation of the quality assurance scheme in Morocco which is very similar
to the French â€œChartes Sanitairesâ€. Morocco has now reached a good level of
bio-security and is responding to the same level of requirements as many other
countries, he said.
Michel Clech, senior technician for Hubbard, showed the evolution of the
breeder results. He has collected and analysed the breeder field results for
many years, giving an objective picture of the technical achievements, now with
some new record-breaking results for the Hubbard JV and Hubbard Classic. The
analysis also showed that the change from open-sided to dark-out houses improved
the results with 4-5 chicks per breeder female placed.
