CHI, Aviagen's Arbor Acres host successful Arbor Acres Day




Aviagen's Arbor Acres team, together with  CHI Farms Ltd, an Arbor Acres parent stock distributor, got together recently to host a seminar on improving poultry performance through reliable genetics.


The one-day seminar, entitled "Arbor Acres Day", was held in Ibadan, Nigeria, and was attended by representatives from broiler and breeder companies as well as hatcheries in the region.


The event included a number of presentations from Aviagen experts, covering key topics from Best Brooding Practices by Zied Azzez (technical service manager) to "Maintaining Persistency of Production in Hot Tropical Environments" by Neil Clark (regional technical manager) and "Intestinal Health Management to Control Coccidiosis" by Dr Zoltan Marton.


"The annual Arbor Acres CHI Seminar is our opportunity to share knowledge, advice and updated practices for the Arbor Acres breed. The topics were carefully selected to meet the current needs of the customers' local industry. This is why it has been important to work with CHI on the planning and content of the seminar," said International commercial manager, Puzant Dakessian, who introduced the seminar with updates on Aviagen and Arbor Acres. "We are so grateful to everyone for their hard work in organising this great event. This year, we are delighted to celebrate 10 years of cooperation with CHI Farms Ltd, our Arbor Acres distributor in Nigeria. We want to thank CHI for their commitment to Arbor Acres and their successful promotion of the brand in Nigeria."


Dr Rotimi Akinlolu, sales and marketing manager, CHI Farms Ltd, added: "In addition to our main role of sustaining local production by driving our overall capacity towards contributing our quota to national food security, we are also committed to investing resources in training and development programmes for local growers and farmers, making them aware of modern production methods."
