The biennial Hubbard Polska customer seminar was a great success with around 150 customers attending the event held from 16-18 May, 2012 at the Ossolinski Palace in Sterdyn, about 120 km East from Warsaw.
After the welcome speech of Dr. Andrzej Rosinski (General Manager of Hubbard Polska), Aleksandra Golebiowska focused on the Hubbard Flex breeder management and the excellent results that have been seen in the field with flocks peaking over 88%. Lech Filipiak and Lukasz Sloniewicz showed the good technical results achieved by the Hubbard Flex and Hubbard F15 broilers and went in more detail about the lighting programs to be used and the importance of low levels of footpad dermatitis as seen in all the Hubbard products.
Professor Piotr Szeleszczuk of the Warsaw University of Life Sciences addressed three different main topics: “Enteroccocus, a real problem for Polish poultry production”, “Mycoplasma dilemmas – Mycoplasma Synoviae contamination and not only” and “Biosecurity in poultry production”. On the last day, Paul van Boekholt (Hubbard Business Director) gave an update on the current situation in poultry production in the world and in the EU.
The next seminar will be held in 2014 when Hubbard Polska will organise the 20th customer seminar to celebrate its 25th anniversary.
