Aviagen Offering Interactive Tools of the Future Today10 February 2016
GLOBAL - Aviagen® is continuing to develop practical interactive tools for its customers across the world.
The range of tools Aviagen has to offer has been created specifically for its different customer bases and all of them are straightforward and easy to use. The Aviagen website hosts the interactive documents which provide useful management advice and information for customers and include, where appropriate, links to other existing Aviagen literature for further information.
The current selection available includes Uniplus+, an Excel® spreadsheet for use on broiler farms. Uniplus+ uses sample weights or average weight and a coefficient of variation to predict the weight distribution of a flock of either single-sex or mixed-sex birds, estimating the number of birds that will fall into any given body weight category. For broiler growers this helps management decisions so that the maximum number of birds can achieve a desired depletion weight.
Aviagen also offers a Broiler Performance Interactive PDF in the form of a checklist for investigating broiler performance problems. The document covers many areas of broiler management – disease, nutrition, feed conversion rates, lighting and brooding. The interactive elements of this pdf are specifically designed to connect customers to instructive and supportive information relating to the management of their birds; aiding day to day decision making and directing managers towards potential areas of investigation if a problem is seen.
Dr. Emma Whittemore, Global Technical Transfer Manager, Aviagen said: “It is important that we present guidance and information for the customer, allowing them to be proactive in bird management. We are proud that we have been able to create clear and accessible information for customers to utilise across different sections of their businesses.”
Aviagen is committed to offering information to support all aspects and sections of the industry. The Technical Transfer department is also working on a new interactive PDF on fertility problem solving for breeders. The new PDF will be designed to help farmers identify the causes of any infertility issues and provide solutions and information to alleviate them. This will be available later this year on the Aviagen website.
