Aviagen Participates in National Poultry Show in Canada


The National Poultry Show held in London, Ontario on April 3-4 featured contributions by Aviagen.


Regional business consultant Dr. Scott Gillingham addressed a technical session emphasizing the importance of technology and collection of data for improved performance.  His presentation topic, “You cannot manage what you don’t measure” represents the future of intensive poultry production.


Gillingham observed, “Aviagen is committed to the success of our Canadian customers, and sharing the very latest developments and management advice to increase their productivity.”  He added, “The National Poultry Show offered us a great opportunity to strengthen relationships and gain ideas for improving our service.”


Aviagen has supported the Canadian Poultry Research Council for a number of years.  In 2019 a portion of their support has been earmarked for the Aviagen Poultry Genetics Scholarship.  This will assist with expenses for Canadian poultry students to pursue advanced studies in genetics.  Aviagen will regularly select students whose aspirations align with the Corporate vision to help feed the world’s growing population with a nutritious and sustainable source of protein.  Bird health and welfare must be advanced through continuous improvements in breeding programs requiring the contribution of veterinarians, nutritionists and geneticists.


Aviagen employees more than 4,600 and operates a distribution network serving customers in more than 100 nations.  Products included Arbor Acres®, Indian River®, and Ross®.  New specialty breed include Rowan Range® and Specialty Males® to meet specific or niche market requirements.
