In early November, Aviagen hosted animal health officials for Tennessee, National Poultry Improvement Plan and the U.S. Department of Agriculture at the company's new Veterinary Services Laboratory.


Discussions centered on Aviagen’s active participation and compliance with the NPIP categories for Meat Type Primary Breeding Stock, the health certification process for exports, testing performed following the provisions-diagnostic procedures in the NPIP programs, proficiency and training of lab employees, and potential opportunities for diagnostic support from the Tennessee State Diagnostic Laboratory.
