Aviagen hosted a virtual production management school during the first week of August to stay engaged and connected with customers during the current COVID-19 pandemic. The online school included 480 attendees from every region of the globe.
The more than 35 topics presented by Aviagen and industry experts explored best practices in poultry production that serve to strengthen bird welfare, health and performance, while increasing profitability for chicken producers. Among the highlights was a live ventilation workshop led by the poultry department staff from the University of Auburn.
Aviagen marketing tradeshow and digital events manager Wouter Lassauw said the event was a success. “It was rewarding to see everyone around the world come together, while still being able to discuss the topics and feel connected. We’ve appreciated the positive comments on the school, and are happy we were able to deliver what our students wanted.”
Lassauw said Aviagen is already planning future virtual schools. The Aviagen schools are by invitation only, and customers can contact their regional managers for more information.
