Virtual event presents tools to help customers get chicks off to a great start
BANGKOK, Thailand. – During July 13-15, Aviagen® Asia-Pacific hosted a “Brooding Masterclass” webinar as an exclusive, value-added service for its customers. The online meeting featured management practices that result in a great chick start – from hatch through seven days of age. Led by the regional Aviagen customer service team and a panel of international experts, the three sessions offered vital management advice on house preparation, environmental conditions at the hatchery during transport and in house, lighting, gut health, nutrition and other strategies to optimize bird health, welfare and performance in the first seven days of life. Customers were awarded with certificates for completion of the sessions.
