Brazil’s Federal University of Goiás has inaugurated a new poultry school as part of its school of veterinary medicine. It will be run in partnership with the company Super Frango.

The new facility was built to the standards of an industrial poultry site with high technical specifications and a high degree of automation. It has the capacity to rear 23,000 broilers that will be slaughtered at 42-45 days. The partnership with Super Frango means that the facility does not need to worry about sourcing inputs or the sale of birds, and numerous batches can be reared each year.

It will offer students practical experience, allowing them to follow every stage of broiler production, and is the most up-to-date educational facility of its kind in the country.
