Aviagen sponsors Canadian poultry research program

Aviagen, the inaugural sponsor in the Canadian Poultry Research Council’s (CPRC) new Research Program, has presented the CPRC with a C$25,000 sponsorship.

Scott Gillingham, Canadian regional business consultant for Aviagen, presented the CPRC with the first in a series of three annual sponsorships.

The CPRC is an industry-led organisation with a mandate to support poultry research in Canada through funding, communication of research results, and research-related activities, such as coordinating conferences and meetings on industry research priorities.  Sponsor contributions will be used to enhance member organisation annual funding to support the increasing demand for industry research funds.

A recent review of CPRC-funded research projects showed that all parts of the poultry value chain benefit from the discoveries, including producers, feed suppliers, animal health care companies and professionals, processors, distributors, and consumers.
