Aviagen Italia invited long-time customer La Pellegrina to visit its UK operations in Scotland for a behind-the-scenes facilities tour.

The visit allowed the two companies to discuss the latest in research and development and Italian poultry industry challenges. For example, "in Italy, ventilation, especially in winter, is a big issue," said Aviagen Italia General Manager Claudio Ambrogio. "With such warm summers, weather variations can be extreme which means balancing the right levels of ventilation over the year is difficult. We were able to demonstrate some of the solutions used in Scotland for effective winter management."


Attendees said they hope to take what they learned and apply it to their own operations.
