The valuable insights into how these early-stage factors influence hatchability, chick immune health, immune foundation, Boehringer 2024 Spnr By 200pxand overall broiler productivity. The quality of chicks post-hatching sets the stage for their growth trajectory and overall performance. By understanding and optimizing these variables, poultry producers can improve their flock's growth, health, and efficiency from the very start of the production cycle. Featured speakers include Dr. Jeanna Wilson, professor and extension specialist in the Poultry Science Department at the University of Georgia, and Dr. Muhammad Kashif Qazi, Poultry Technical Services and Poultry Academy.

This webinar will broadcast at 7:00 AM CDT (Chicago) / 1:00 PM BST (London) / 8:00 PM CST (Beijing).

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:

1. Implementing best practices and leveraging advanced incubation technologies can lead to more consistent and improved outcomes.

2. The quality of chicks at hatch, assessed through indicators can predict future growth rates and immune health.

3. Understanding and managing the factors contributing to egg quality, such as shell integrity, can significantly impact broiler performance.

This webinar is sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim and presented by WATTPoultry.
