Hatchery-Breeder Clinic to Focus on Quality, Performance Efficiency

09 June 2014

US - The 2014 Hatchery-Breeder Clinic will be held in Nashville on 8 and 9 July.

A successful poultry operation depends on many critical elements, and one of those elements is the hatchery-breeder flock division.

The 2014 Hatchery-Breeder Clinic will bring together hatchery and breeder flock managers to discuss the latest technology, equipment and effective management techniques to help increase hatchability and performance. The annual Clinic, sponsored by the US Poultry & Egg Association (USPoultry), will be held on 8 and 9 July, at the DoubleTree Hotel in Nashville, Tennesee.

Programme committee chairman, Jiggs Killgore of Hubbard LLC, said: “This is an excellent programme with topics and speakers relevant to today’s challenges. The Clinic addresses several general topics of interest, such as current statistical and trend information for breeders and hatcheries, animal welfare awareness, the impact of humidity in the hatchery and other great information for successfully managing, rearing and hatching. I encourage everyone involved in live production to help make this 2014 Hatchery-Breeder Clinic one of the most well attended events in the industry.”

Other topics include:

  • Economic impact of poultry in Tennessee
  • Agri Stats for hatcheries and breeders
  • Disease management: new innovations for LT / MS / MG / reovirus
  • Embryo development before storage
  • Breeder production and fertility
  • Chick holding and post hatch
  • Breeder nutrition: seasonal shell quality and feather issues
  • Hatchery sanitation best practices
  • Breed changes: effects on feeding, lighting and fertility programme, and
  • a USPoultry overview.
