Aviagen Recognized at Tennessee Poultry Association Meeting


During the 2022 Tennessee Poultry Association (TPA) Meeting in Nashville on August 19th two Aviagen employees were recognized for contributions to the North American broiler industry.


Jeremy Martin was honored by the Association as the Workhorse of the Year and was appointed as the first Vice-president.  Martin has participated in the Tennessee Poultry Association for close to 25 years and has served on the Board since 2019.  He also chairs the Scholarship Committee and has been active in the Live Production Committee.

Rachel Breeding, the Quality Assurance and Regulatory Manager for the Aviagen Pedigree Operation in Crossville, TN. received the Tennessee Poultry Association Next Gen Young Leader Under Thirty Award.  This recognizes a young professional involved in poultry production or processing with the potential to advance the industry through dedication and enthusiasm.  Clara Goldman who nominated Ms. Breeding noted, "She excels in her roles with the QA and Regulatory Team showing careful attention to detail and an unmatched ability to work with people.


Dr. Marc de Beer, President of Aviagen North America who was the keynote speaker at the annual meeting noted, "Aviagen is proud of both Rachel and Jeremy and we appreciate the TPA honoring our employees.  We value our close and longstanding relationship with the TPA and share with them a vision to equip farmers with everything they need to put healthy chicken meat on the tables of families in Tennessee and North America”.
