Hubbard's Feed Saver Concept guard poultry producers against high feed prices
Russian company Baltisa, the exclusive distributor for Hubbard brought together more than 180 participants from 80 companies at a seminar in Kemer, Turkey during September 22â€“29 to discuss current issues of the poultry industry.
Participants from poultry farms in Russia and neighbouring countries participated in the seminar centred around the main theme of using the Feed Saver Concept or the Hubbard F15 to lower the impact of the high feed prices the poultry industry is facing at the moment.
At the opening of the event Bruno Briand, sales manager of Hubbard for Turkey, said that in the fast growing market of Turkey, which is also facing the pressure of high feed prices, local producers using the Hubbard F15 are now taking the full advantage of the higher output per m2 of production surface as well as at the high level of savings in breeder feed and the good broiler performance.
Thirty-eight reports were presented during the technical seminar over four days, mostly focused on production management methods in minimising feed cost per kilogramme of meat produced. Russian and international experts discussed all aspects in detail which are very important in this continuous "race" to save the profitability of an integrated broiler producer, despite high and rising prices of feed raw materials.
The presentations made by farm specialists of several customers confirmed that in an industrial environment, the Hubbard F15 delivers the expected results at both breeder and broiler level, which is repeated from flock to flock.
The seminar extensively addressed the fact that the good productivity of the Hubbard F15 with a low feed intake enhances resource saving technologies with a positive effect on the overall economic outcome of a poultry integration. High prices for feed raw materials are expected to last at least until the next harvest. This situation only increases the interest of using the "Feed Saver Concept" of the Hubbard F15, allowing to produce more meat from each kilogramme of feed than any other breed in Russia in the current situation.
In Turkey, the Hubbard F15, like in Russia, has confirmed its excellent results in feed conversion and liveability, leading to higher profitability of the integrated producers.
Close cooperation between the market, the distributor and the R&D department guarantee that in the future, genetic progress will continue to be converted into profit for the poultry producers.
