Applications Invited for Aviagen EMEA School on Broilers

09 July 2013

HUNGARY - Applications will soon be invited for the next module in the highly regarded AviagenĀ® Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) School. The broiler module will take place in Budapest, Hungary, between 15 and 22 February 2014.

Interested parties are urged to be quick as the breeder module which takes place in August this year was oversubscribed well in advance of the closing date for applications.

To give possible students a taste of what they might expect, a video, detailing some of the activities undertaken at the school and feedback from previous participants, is available on the Aviagen website (please click here).

EMEA School Director Nick Spenceley explained: "Whilst the EMEA School is still a fairly new concept in comparison to the fifty years Aviagen has been running the US School it has quickly developed a strong following. We’re delighted that the breeder module is oversubscribed with some 2012 students also attending in 2013 which shows just how useful people have found the School.

"The broiler module will be very much focused on financial performance and getting the best from your birds. We’ll be looking at some new techniques as well as highlighting some of those basic things that can easily be overlooked.

The module will include technical and financial trouble shooting through workshop case studies detailing typical challenges facing production managers in the current difficult business climate."

The next hatchery management and incubation module will return to Amsterdam in 2014 between 15 and 21 March. More details can be found on the Aviagen website or are available through your local Aviagen contact.
