The course that took place from February 12 – 16, 2007, was held at the Penn State University and included several lectures on a diversity of subjects such as physics, physiology, chick quality evaluation, hatchery design, bio-security and sanitation - all presented by highly experienced people from Penn State and Hybro.

“The course attracted participants - Hybro and PennState customers and partners – from Belgium, Poland, Peru, Indonesia, Brazil and the U.S.,” says Ron Meijerhof, Hybro senior technical specialist and co-organizer of the course, “and was a big success for us all.”

Besides the various lectures, the program also included practical, hands-on trainings on break out analysis, chick quality analysis, hygiene testing, vaccination procedures, machine operations and general hatching auditing.

“The winter setting of Pennsylvania provided a good atmosphere for developing the skills of the participants on incubation,” continues Meijerhof, “and general opinion told us that the course was a success, both due to the good atmosphere in the group and due to the interesting program.”

“All participants went home with a wealth of expertise and knowledge on new and existing developments in incubation. Together with Penn State we decided to repeat this course every six months.”
