The performance, health and welfare of Aviagen's Ross® broiler flocks in Northern Ireland continue to soar, as the membership and popularity of the Ross 420 Club stays on an upward trend, the company said.

To reward and encourage this star performance of Moy Park growers, Aviagen® and Moy Park recently hosted a virtual awards ceremony, welcoming them to the Ross 420 Club. 233 awards were given to 105 producers for performance results in 2019 and 2020, with 17 gold and two double gold presented.

"We are extremely proud of the accomplishments of these star growers," remarked Aviagen UK technical service manager Kieron Daniels. "They are a shining example of the performance heights possible when dedication and teamwork are combined with skilful stockmanship and attention to detail."

During the awards webinar, Kieron took the opportunity to share with participants latest developments on disease control and prevention, while R&D manager Brendan Duggan updated them on the latest news from the Aviagen breeding programme.

John Harrison, Moy Park's live operations manager, added that he gives full credit to the farmers for their hard work and commitment. "We thank these winners for their passion and talent, and are grateful for this opportunity to celebrate their achievements."
