AN AVIAGEN AND ROSS POUL­TRY BREED­ERS COM­MIT­MENT TO FU­TURE SUP­PLY IN SOUTH AFRICA

The Poultry Bulletin - - CONTENTS -

Aviagen be­came the first poul­try breed­ing com­pany to achieve com­part­ment sta­tus for its UK fa­cil­i­ties in 2011. Com­part­men­tal­i­sa­tion of­fers the abil­ity to ex­port chicks and eggs from ap­proved fa­cil­i­ties in the event of an out­break of Avian In­fluenza (AI) or New­cas­tle Dis­ease (ND) in the ex­port­ing coun­try. It is a gov­ern­ment-au­dited en­dorse­ment of the bio-se­cu­rity and health sta­tus of the breed­ing stock dis­trib­uted from an ap­proved com­part­ment. Se­cu­rity of sup­ply is an in­creas­ing is­sue for the global poul­try in­dus­try and South Africa. By work­ing to­gether Aviagen and Ross Poul­try Breed­ers have se­cured con­ti­nu­ity of sup­ply to South Africa.
