Aviagen supports WPSA at Czech meeting

22-12-2011 | |

Aviagen provided significant support to the Czech branch of the World Poultry Science Association (WPSA) at the organisation’s 15th annual conference in Brno.

The conference was attended by over 100 technical and veterinary professionals from around the Czech Republic and speakers from eight different countries, including two from Aviagen, covered the industry’s most pressing topics over the course of two days.

Amongst the speakers were Jim McAdam, Aviagen’s UK Breeding Programme Director, who discussed the importance of a balanced breeding programme, and Vlada Zima, Aviagen’s Sales and Technical Manager for the Czech Republic and Slovakia, who presented the findings of a collaboration between Aviagen and the University in Saskatchewan in Canada on lighting programmes for broilers.

Vlada Zima commented: “The WPSA plays a crucial role in telling the story of poultry science to the industry as a whole. They help the poultry industry to advance knowledge and provide technical support – and we were delighted to be asked to take part in the conference in the Czech Republic.

“The Czech market is growing and the industry now has a well-established network of poultry experts. Our role in helping the market grow is two-fold: we provide the products that are best suited to the marketplace, and we offer the highest quality technical support in the industry.”
