Marc S. Baribault, Vice President of Arbor Acres delivered the key presentation on the rearing and uniformity of the broiler breeder.

He stressed the importance of the Avian Growth Profile and brooding and also reviewed the recommended approaches to stocking density, lighting, temperature, grading, feeder and drinker space along with the interpretation and value of data used in flock management.
