Aviagen recently co-hosted a technical seminar with their major Ross customer in Slovenia, Perutina Ptuj.
The seminar, which has become an annual event, brought together all Perutina Ptuj’s Parent Stock (PS) farmers as well as PS farmers from the company’s Serbian venture Topiko. Delegates were addressed by members of the Aviagen team who passed on a wide range of topical technical advice.
Neil Clark, Technical Service Manager, discussed consistency in PS performance and Kruno Bosilj, Technical Service Manager, highlighted critical inputs to maintain fertility and hatchability.
The seminar also saw the presentation of the annual Ross Flock Awards. Perutnina Ptuj farm managers Branko Firbas and Ana Jeza were commended for achieving hen-house chick numbers above 142 chicks to 60 weeks.
