Seminar to maximise poultry performance in Africa

The Flanders poultry cluster, together with partners Poultry World, Vetworks, Cersa, and the University of Lome, is proud to announce that registration for the in-person seminar on maximising poultry performance in Africa is open. The event will be held on 17 May during the Pan-African poultry conference in Lomé, Togo.

Establishing a sustainable poultry production system in Africa is imperative to nourish the expanding population.

To enhance both egg and meat output from poultry, we must address several key challenges, including:

  • Securing the quality of day-old chicks
  • Securing the availability of good quality feed
  • Keeping the birds healthy.

To achieve the best performance, the farmer must learn best practices on how to manage the flock from the very first day. Diseases can be controlled with good biosecurity and adequate vaccination programmes.

Investing in farmer education and training to recognise bird signals and take appropriate action is crucial for making poultry production a profitable venture.

A line-up of expert speakers

Dr Hilde Van Meirhaeghe, Vetworks, Ghent University, will discuss successful management strategies to maximise poultry performance.
