TURKEY - On 22 to 29 September 2012, the Russian company, Baltisa, exclusive distributor for Hubbard, held its annual seminar in Kemer, Turkey.

More than 180 participants from 80 different companies, of which many poultry farms in Russia and from neighbouring countries had responded to the invitation of Gennady Petrovich Sjedin, director of Baltisa, and his team to discuss the current issues of the poultry industry in a very pleasant and highly professional business atmosphere. The main theme was about using the Feed Saver Concept or the Hubbard F15 to lower the impact of the high feed prices the poultry industry is facing at the moment.

At the opening of the event Bruno Briand, sales manager of Hubbard for Turkey, welcomed the Russian guests to the seminar and explained the rapid growth in sales of the Hubbard F15 breeders in Turkey. In this fast growing market which is also facing the pressure of high feed prices, local producers using the Hubbard F15 are now taking the full advantage of the higher output per m2 of production surface as well as at the high level of savings in breeder feed and the good broiler performance. In Turkey the Hubbard F15, like in Russia, now has confirmed its excellent results in feed conversion and liveability, leading to higher profitability of the integrated producers.

In total 38 reports were presented during the 4 days of the technical seminar. Much focus has been paid to production management methods minimising the feed cost per kilogram of meat produced. Russian and international experts discussed all aspects in detail which are very important in this continuous "race" to save the profitability of an integrated broiler producer, despite high and rising prices of feed raw materials.

The presentations made by farm specialists of several customers confirmed that in an industrial environment the Hubbard F15 delivers the expected results at both breeder and broiler level, which is repeated from flock to flock. The Hubbard F15 is the right genetic solution required by the Russian market today and Hubbard is constantly paying a lot of attention to these important needs for the future as well. Close cooperation between the market, the distributor and the R&D department guarantee that in the future genetic progress will continue to be converted into profit for the poultry producers.

The seminar extensively addressed the fact that the good productivity of the Hubbard F15 with a low feed intake enhances resource saving technologies with a positive effect on the overall economic outcome of a poultry integration. High prices for feed raw materials are expected to last at least until the next harvest. This situation only increases the interest of using the "Feed Saver Concept" of the Hubbard F15, allowing to produce more meat from each kilogram of feed than any other breed in Russia in the current situation.

Besides the many professional discussions, an educational cultural program to explore the beauty of the Antalya region has been organised as well. And much time was also allocated to exchange ideas between the participants to further develop their technical, economical and business knowledge of the poultry industry giving all more benefit in the near future.

Baltisa also proudly presented the significant Yearly Progress performance indicators for more than 8.4 million breeder females housed and more than 460 million broilers placed. Great achievement of the Russian poultry specialists is the fact that at least 50 per cent of all flocks - more than 4.5 million breeder females - are producing at or above the target of Total Egg production combined with a good stable level of fertility and hatchability.

Being easy to handle, the Hubbard F15 PS shows a good production at high densities. Farms using a stocking density of 6.5 chickens per square metre during the production period produce more than 1,100 eggs per square metre.
