Wesjohann Group: Poultry event in Egypt
Four companies from the Wesjohann Group, including Aviagen and Lohmann Tierzucht, recently organised a training event in Cairo, Egypt, which attracted over 40 delegates.
Ross customers from Ethiopia, Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt and others attended the training held at Cairo’s Safir Hotel.
This is the second time Ross has been involved with the event, which was organised by Lohmann Tierzucht and shows the scale of knowledge which Ross customers can call on as part of the Wesjohann Group. A number of equipment and veterinary suppliers also sponsored and attended the event.
Ross Technical Managers, Waleed El Deeb and Hosam Amro gave presentations on Ross brooding and critical age management and the event was also attended by Michael Garden Business Manager, Middle East, Turkey and Africa and John Maguire, International Business Manager. Feedback from attendees has been very positive. Other presentations included; incubation and hatching egg management, hatchery management and eggshell quality.
Poultry industry must-do
John Maguire said: “This event is quickly becoming a ‘must do’ for the poultry industry in this area. Not only is it a great place to learn about the latest developments and techniques but the activities in the evening give everyone a chance to meet new people and talk about the industry with like-minded people. Having a forum to share ideas and experience is invaluable.
“For that reason we’d like to pass our thanks to Lohmann Tierzucht for inviting us to be part of this meeting again and we are glad that everyone was able to take away a positive experience from this.”
As always, a number of social events also took place which gave everyone a chance to make new friends and catch up with old ones while sharing advice and insight into the poultry industry. Social events included a Nile cruise and a light show at Egypt’s famous pyramids.
