"We are very appreciative of the support our customers have for the Ross Asia Association," said Paul Gittins, vice president for Aviagen Asia.

"The Ross bird is becoming increasingly popular in many Asian markets," said Mr. Gittins. "With the impressive product performance and outstanding technical expertise there to support our customers, I am very confident about the future prospects for growing our business."
