More than 20 hours of advanced economical and technical sessions and round tables were proposed to the attendees in a highly professional yet friendly atmosphere.

A first focus was made on the Russian current market situation and perspectives. Galina A. Bobyleva, General Director of the Russian Poultry Union, drew the panorama of the today’s poultry meat market: a highly competitive market where productivity per square meter has become the main focus for many leading companies. In this respect, Mrs. Bobyleva highligted the necessity to permanently adjust feeding and management techniques to suit the needs of high genetic potential strains. Mrs. Bobyleva did also confirm the positive trend in the domestic market: coming from 2.85 MT of poultry meat in 2010 the production has nearly reached 4.03 MT in 2014. It is expected to attain 4.50 MT by the year 2020. This is driven as well as an increased domestic demand (28.1 kg of poultry meat consumed per inhabitant in year 2014) as by expected increases in export of meat.

Above views confirm the importance of the optimization of the parent-stock production and the increase of the day-old chick output. Considering the today’s high cost of hatching eggs the Hubbard F15, producing the highest eggs and chicks output per square meter, has been chosen by many customers as their golden solution. Obtaining more than 1.100 eggs per square meter at 62 weeks of age has become a common practice for most of the BALTISA customers. This is a fair 20% more than any standard bird achievement!

Led by Maxim Golosov, BALTISA’s Technical Director, management, sanitary and hatchery advices were given to enable the parent-stock performances to continue to progress, which is still possible as shown in the table below:

Considering the cost of the feed raw materials, the housing costs, and the increased demand for local production, the Russian broiler industry is driven by growth, FCR and productivity/m². The total meat yield production (whole meat production and carcass quality) has therefore become the main goal for many broiler companies.

Being the n°1 breed in Russia for many years now, the Hubbard F15 continues to progress on all traits that matter for the integrators: lowest feed consumed per day-old chick, highest day-old chick output per m², highest total meat yield per m², excellent growth, optimal carcass quality and an unbeateable FCR! A strong technical focus was therefore given on the proper broiler feeding and management. Particular emphasis was provided on broiler start, feed presentation, ventilation, litter quality, and on the conditions to maximize true yields at the processing plant as well as on carcass quality.

Top results as a function of the production system:

Whether it is placed under high or moderate stocking density conditions, or whether it is placed on floor or in cages, the Hubbard F15 broiler shows outsdanding adaptability, very competitive live performances and an excellent FCR.

During the gala dinner, awards for “outstanding performances” were given to the farm managers achieving the best technical field results.

Besides the many professional discussions, an educational cultural program to explore the beauty of the Sochi region and the Olympic sites were organized as well.
