Approximately 130 broiler technicians, veterinarians, nutritionists and farmers attended the second in a series of technical days organized by Aviagen France, proposing various solutions to challenges faced by the broiler industry, particularly in relation to the issues surrounding bird welfare. 

Aviagen France celebrated its first anniversary earlier in 2012 with the initial meeting in a series of industry events. This second meeting, held near Nantes, France, included a number of presentations from Aviagen experts covering a range of topics. Dr. Richard Bailey and Dr. Leonardo Linares presented on gut health and broiler nutrition, respectively, while Aviagen EPI’s Otto Van Tuijl looked at opportunities to influence broiler performance through practical light and feed programs.
