The Pas Reform Academy recently hosted a two-day training seminar for hatchery managers in Pleven, Bulgaria. The training was well attended by the whole of the Bulgarian hatchery industry, with delegates including representatives from Slaviana, Santal, Bovans Bulgaria, Bulagro, Popovo, Nikolov, Aves, Embryo and Gradus - all of whom welcomed the opportunity to share information and discuss the very latest hatchery management techniques.
A comprehensive programme included lectures on health, hygiene, egg analysis, incubation programmes and chick quality on the first day, followed by practical sessions on day two to take a closer look at hatching egg analysis and chick quality. Mr. Iliya Marinov, Pas Reform's representative in Bulgaria, says: 'We welcome Pas Reform's interest and input to the development of the Bulgarian hatchery industry. Feedback from delegates was extremely positive, as they lacked up-to-date knowledge in this field - and it is a real asset for all of us to be able to evaluate these principles for our developing industry'.
Speakers at the Bulgarian Academy included Martin Barten, Senior Hatchery Specialist, Dr. Marleen Boerjan, embryologist and Ir. Lotte van de Ven, Trainer.
Hatchery Management Training is an integral part of Pas Reform's approach to working in partnership - and ensures that hatchery personnel and management teams have access to the most current information, to boost efficiencies and productivity, and to make a lasting contribution to achieving commercial success.
