Successful incubation in hot, humid climates poses a number of challenges for the hatchery, one of which is achieving sufficient weight loss at transfer to deliver high hatchability and optimal chick quality.
Aviagen has awarded the contract for the renovation and expansion of its Ross PM3 and Ross 308 GP hatchery in France to Pas Reform.
Any incubation program, even when it’s successful, is never final. Sooner or later, it will have to be adapted according to changes resulting from climate, breed, egg quality, technical upgrades of setters and hatchers and numerous other factors. The need to adapt will be signaled by results in terms of hatchability and chick quality. The routine monitoring of eggshell temperature, yield and egg weight loss, for example, can provide an early warning that changes are needed.
As part of its collaboration with FoodTechIndonesia (‘FTI’), the Pas Reform Academy has worked with partners once again to deliver the latest in a series of breeder and hatchery management training programs for poultry industry professionals.
