CROATIA - Aviagen continues to demonstrate their commitment to sharing the latest information and practical advice with customers at the annual technical seminar with Koka Varazdin, a major Ross customer in Croatia.

The seminar was the latest in Aviagen’s series of events which take a more innovative and practical approach to information-sharing.

Regional Technical Manager Jonny Harrison and Technical Manager Neil Clark conducted the seminar which updated the 30 parent stock (PS) farmers and representatives of the Koka technical team on a variety of subjects. The presentations included topics such as ventilation techniques and performance objectives.

The highlights of the event were the thermal imaging, ventilation and male management workshops. These interactive workshops allowed the delegates to get out of the classroom and into the field, ensuring they gained hands-on experience of the techniques and advice the team were passing on. Lively discussions and information-sharing were an important part of the workshops.

Jonny Harrison said, “The event has been a great success and we have received excellent feedback from delegates about the workshops.

“The workshops have demonstrated a different approach to traditional lecture-based learning where we stand up and speak for hours. Getting out into the field lets the farm managers who attended the event see the practical application of the advice, and we hope this makes it easier for them to transfer the skills to the management of their flock and get the maximum performance from their Ross stock.

“We would like to thank the team at Koka Varazdin for their help in hosting the seminar.”
