Next Aviagen Latin America Webinar Underlines the Importance of Giving Broilers a Good Chick Start

Santiago Lovera will talk about the positive impact of careful management during the first weeks of a broiler chick’s life

Santiago LoveraCAMPINAS, Brazil – In a webinar on May 26, poultry genetics company Aviagen® will once again engage with its Latin American customers. The topic of discussion will be the positive impact of careful management during the first weeks of a broiler chick’s life.

According to Veterinarian Santiago Lovera, Aviagen’s Technical Service Manager for South America Except Brazil (SAEB) and leader of the webinar, excellent care in this phase can result in healthy and productive birds. "It has been proven that effective initial management results in efficient production, with steady improvement in qualities such as a healthy growth rate, meat yield, livability and robustness. In this virtual meeting, we will talk about the critical management points that must be taken into account during the first 14 days of a bird’s life to ensure strong performance, health and welfare.”
