In this edition of Poultry World we look at Russia’s ‘broiler super breed’, the global challenge of labour shortages and what automation offers as a solution, plus insights from recently held conferences.
For many years the Russian market was very interesting for exporters of poultry technology and breeding stock. However, that is changing fast under pressure of trade issues and not the least because of Russia’s efforts to become self-sufficient. In Poultry World's 5th issue we have a look in Russia’s breeding stock operation and run the numbers on what is called the ‘Russian broiler super breed’.
