AB Vista appoints new technical services member
AB Vista has announced the appointment of Dr. Michelle Stewart as member of its Technical Services team.
Dr. Stewart will focus on the monogastric business at AB Vista, supporting customers in determining how or why leg health issues evolve in the field.
Since joining AB Vista, Dr. Stewart already furthered the development of monitoring bone development from the hatchery to processing plants and hopes to reduce some causes of lameness that are costly to the industry.
"Dr. Stewart has already highlighted promising insight on skeletal development that will prove valuable to the poultry industry," said Dr. Craig Wyatt, AB Vista's technical manager. "While AB Vista previously looked extensively at skeletal development in early birds, adding Dr. Stewart to the technical services group adds a significant surge in findings and encouragement for new research."
Obtaining her Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degrees from the University of Georgia, Dr. Stewart had worked at the Georgia Poultry Laboratory Network. Her main focus has been poultry medicine from the start of her career.
Dr. Stewart also recently graduated from the University of Georgia's Masters of Avian Medicine programme.
