Aviagen North America appoints manager for new feed site in Tennessee, US


Aviagen North America has appointed Kasey Wilson as feed mill manager for the company's new feed processing facility in Pikeville, Tennessee, the United States, effective March 1.


In this role, Wilson will be responsible for overseeing the production, quality, cost and safety of the facility.


Slated for opening in January 2022, the feed mill will provide Aviagen's growing internal broiler breeding flocks with high-quality, pathogen-free feed.


Wilson will report directly to Richard Obermeyer, director of feed production. Obermeyer explained that Wilson was selected from a long list of candidates due to his considerable expertise.


"We are happy to welcome Kasey as our feed mill manager for the Pikeville feed processing facility. The modern feed mill is a highly complex operation and effective management requires a unique skill set. Kasey was selected based on his qualifications, along with strong leadership, communication and organisational abilities and enthusiasm for feed mill excellence."


"I am excited to become part of the Aviagen family as manager of the innovative Pikeville facility," said Wilson. "Aviagen and I share a passion for bird health and welfare, which I believe begins with nutritious, biosecure feed."
