Twenty-five farmers from the Erzeugergemeinschaft Süd-West producer group visited the Wimex operations in the Baasdorf region to learn more about the company, particularly the breeding and performance of Cobb500 parent stock.

The farmers, who grow chickens for Europe’s largest poultry meat producer Wiesenhof at Bogen, Bavaria, were welcomed by Gerhard Wagner, founder of Wimex, outlining the historical development of his company and describing its current activities. The visitors also took tours of both rearing and production farms.
