Flock Awards Recognize Top Ross Performance

09/11/2019

In a September 11th release, Aviagen announced winners of awards for exceptional broiler breeder performance in 2019.

Based on 2018 flock records, Ross 708 and Ross 308 performance awards were made for the following categories:-

  • Top number of eggs produced per hen-housed to 65 weeks
  • Top number of hatching eggs produced per-hen housed to 65 weeks
  • Top percentage hatch to 65 weeks
  • Top number of chicks produced per-hen housed to 65 weeks

To be eligible, a farm complex must submit all records of depleted flocks received from Aviagen for the previous year, with a minimum requirement of six flocks.

In addition to rewarding the achievement of recipients, the Flock Award program offers customers real data on depleted flocks for benchmarking.

Aviagen began the Flock Award program in 2014 to recognize the skill and dedication of valued Ross customers. Subsequently Aviagen expanded the program to more achievement categories.

In commenting on awards Randall Vickery, Regional Technical Manager for Aviagen stated:-

"the story of our North American Ross customers is one of growth and success, as we continue to see increases in year-on-year performance. We congratulate this year's winners and commend their talent in stockmanship and teamwork,"

The Aviagen's VP of Sales, Frank Dougherty added that the North American Customer Support Team cares about their customers and devotes time and energy to add value to their businesses" He added "we're committed to helping our customers stay competitive by continually improving on past success. It is the skilful management and attention to detail of our customers, combined with the close collaboration of our team that makes the winning performance of our Flock Award recipients possible."
