Aviagen Latin America Customers Explore Importance of Good Physical Development in Early Stage of Rearing

Richard Bailey will talk about the influence of early physiological development on broiler performance for Latin American customers

Richard BaileyCAMPINAS, Brazil – In an upcoming Aviagen® Latin America webinar on May 5, customers will engage with Aviagen Poultry Health Scientist Richard Bailey on the influence of early physiological development on broiler performance. Management factors that are important during the early stages of rearing include proper cleaning and sanitation of the poultry house and a clean and fresh water supply. Good intestinal tract development is also critical, and Bailey will emphasize ways to improve intestinal health.

“Careful management in early rearing is essential to growing healthy, robust birds” commented Bailey. “Aviagen is committed to the success of our Latin American producers, and I look forward to sharing knowledge and ideas during the webinar.”
