People from the country flocked together to get first-hand information on best practices in the field. It was an opportunity to share knowledge and get an update on the latest trends in incubation.

What exactly are the Operational Excellence Days? It is an event organised by Petersime to share knowledge with hatchery managers and hatchery project managers, as well as with delegates from major poultry integrations and broiler, layer, duckand breeder companies. Topics covered the best practices in incubation, hatchery management, maintenance and chick quality, with the aim of achieving Operational Excellence at every operational level in the hatchery.

‘Petersime organized the first China Operational Excellence seminar at the Chateau Junding in Penglai. A team of professional (guest) speakers provided information and know-how. Experiences where shared and discussed. Thanks to Shandong Minhe who supported us in the event, a group of 50 important guests from broiler, layer and duck producers, all very interested in the event, attended,’ explains André Van Rij, Petersime Area Sales Manager, and one of the organisers of the event.

Participants at the Operational Excellence Days got first-hand information on the best practices in the field: what are the requirements of the modern embryo? How do I restore the viability of the embryo? How do I perform a hatchery trouble shooting? This way, Petersime aims to be a lifelong partner for hatchery managers.

Besides sharing knowledge and practical information, the participants alsovisited MinheNumber 3 hatchery. This hatchery is running since 2011 and is equipped with 54 BioStreamerTM setters with a yearly capacity of 108 million hatching eggs per year. Recently, Minhe started producing broilers in hatchery Number 2 which is a greenfield hatchery, equipped with 54 BioStreamerTM High Density versions, producing 121 million hatching eggs yearly.

What did the participants themselves think of the Operational Excellence Days? Mr. Sun Xianfa, General Manager of Minhe comments: ‘It was a great opportunity for peers of the poultry sector to participate in this event. The development of the poultry industry does not depend on one company. I believe that all actors in the industry should work together to lift the industry to a higher level. The Operational Excellence Day was a learning event and well communicated. My congratulations and thanks to the organization.’ Mrs. Annie Bao from CP Group adds after the seminar: ‘Excellent topics and good discussions. I hope Petersime can repeat this kind of event with regularity in the future.’
