YEMEN - In early December 2008, Hubbard organised two successful technical seminars with the theme 'Better production, to gain more' for the Yemeni poultry producers.

Both seminars were officially opened by Dr Ghaleb Al-Eriani, General Manager of Animal Resources at the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation.

Many important issues were addressed, including an overview on the global poultry market by Jean-Francois Hamon and key points in Hubbard broiler management by Claude Toudic, both from France. 'Al-Jazeera and the Hubbard Classic' was the theme of a presentation by Abdul-Hafez Al-Geiesi of the Hubbard distributor, Al-Jazeera, from Jordan and critical points in broiler breeder management were covered by Dr Naeem Tareeq from Pakistan.

The first seminar was held at the Sheba hotel in Sana'a and the second one at the Sofitel hotel in Tais. More than 70 people attended each seminar including the managers of the leading poultry companies, breeder and broiler farms managers, farmers and poultry retailers. They all rated the seminars very highly because of the valuable information and data presented, which will support them to further develop their chicken business.

Through the great help in the local market by Dr Turki Sarakbi, Hubbard has become the number 1 breeding stock supplier in the Yemeni market over the past few years. About three of every four breeders placed in Yemen are a Hubbard breed: the two products successfully used are the mini breeder, Hubbard JV, from Hubbard in France and the standard breeder, Hubbard Classic, from Al Jazeera in Jordan.
