St David’s Poultry Team were pleased to present and have a trade stand at another conference with Teagasc at the end of September, in both Monaghan and Limerick, for broiler producers.
Lead Vet for Ireland Aonghus Lane presented on two key topics during the conference: Maximising the microbiome of the bird for health and welfare, and on-farm biosecurity.
We were also delighted to be joined by Thomas Gnose from Reventa who presented on ‘reducing the environmental impacts in broiler production’, Paula McCooey from Alltech who talked about ‘carbon foot printing’, Dr Pat Wall, from UCD on ‘what business are you really in?’ and William Byrne, DAFM who spoke about ‘key biosecurity measures identified by analysis of Campylobacter test results to reduce the risk of Campylobacter infection of pre-thin broilers’.
St David’s Ireland Director Liam Walsh said:
“We were delighted to support another event for poultry producers in Ireland. Having the opportunity to bring many of our clients, as well as others from the industry, together to hear about some of the key topics for the broiler sector, is invaluable. It gave us the chance to share our knowledge and experience, and to discuss some of the current opportunities and challenges that broiler production is facing. Our practice is looking forward to hosting other events for the industry over the comings months.” The event also gave attendees the chance to talk to a number of exhibitors from a broad range of companies that supply products and services to the poultry industry. St David’s Poultry Team showcased some of their supplies, including those that support the topic areas covered in the conference programme. These included nutraceuticals, products that support good gut health and biosecurity – for example detergents and disinfectants – as well as equipment.
