During Sept. 28-30, the Delmarva Poultry Industry Inc. trade association, will host its 55th National Meeting on Poultry Health, Processing and Live Production, and this year’s event will go virtual. Global poultry breeding company Aviagen will support the event as a Platinum sponsor, and two Aviagen poultry specialists will share their insight with attendees. This list will include a diverse group of veterinarians, processing facility managers, quality assurance managers and supervisors, grow-out managers, live production managers, flock supervisors, growers, pharmaceutical representatives, allied businesses, government regulators and officials, research faculty, university extension and others involved in the North American poultry industry.
Dr. Grant Mason, Aviagen Program Geneticist, will lead a discussion on how to promote leg health in birds, and how Aviagen selects for birds with strong bone and leg health. In addition, Eddy van Lierde, Aviagen Incubation Specialist, will speak on best incubation practices that result in high-quality chicks.
Aviagen’s U.S. Sales Manager Jeremy Martin works closely with Delmarva and explains that his company is a longtime supporter of the association and its annual event. “Aviagen is committed to spreading knowledge to promote the success of our poultry producers and the health and welfare of our birds. We also believe in the power of allying with organizations such as Delmarva and together working toward the common good of the poultry meat industry,” remarked Martin.
