Aviagen Arbor Acres and the Nigerian Arbor Acres parent stock distributor, CHI Farms Ltd., recently held a joint seminar in Ibadan, southwestern Nigeria. Nearly 130 of CHI Farms' customers attended the one-day seminar.

Key topics discussed included maximizing day-old chick numbers, vaccinations and farm biosecurity. Interactive sessions were also included which allowed delegates to share knowledge and ideas amongst each other. Speakers included Mohsen Ganjaei, technical service manager, and Alain Silvin, Arbor Acres international sales manager.

Martin Middernacht said: "CHI enjoys a strong relationship with Aviagen and the Arbor Acres brand and it is with great pleasure and pride that we continue to be the biggest supplier of quality chicken and day-old chicks to the Nigerian market."

Mohsen Ganjaei added: "I am thrilled that this event, yet again, was a tremendous success. The outstanding efforts by our distributor CHI, supported by Aviagen's technical and commercial service, goes a long way to strengthening the Arbor Acres brand in Africa.             

CHI has been an Arbor Acres customer for over eight years, growing significantly in that time. The company has state-of-the-art grandparent facilities in Ibadan.
