C.H.I.C.K Pro­gram:

Hatch­ery Vac­ci­na­tion is now Qual­ity Ap­proved

The Poultry Bulletin - - FROM THE DESK -

Ceva South Africa’s C.H.I.C.K Pro­gram has been awarded the first qual­ity code of prac­tice recog­ni­tion from Bu­reau Ver­i­tas.

This in­ter­na­tion­ally-recog­nised qual­ity stamp of ap­proval guar­an­tees the fol­low­ing to poul­try pro­duc­ers and their cus­tomers: Ceva’s ded­i­cated teams are qual­i­fied to mon­i­tor the qual­ity of in ovo and day-old chick vac­ci­na­tion. Ceva will de­liver con­tin­u­ous train­ing in vac­cine stor­age and han­dling, prepa­ra­tion, ad­min­is­tra­tion qual­ity, equip­ment main­te­nance and the mon­i­tor­ing of re­sults. Ceva is com­mit­ted to reg­u­lar hatch­ery vis­its and re­port­ing to hatch­ery man­agers us­ing in­no­va­tive data man­age­ment tools, fol­low­ing up on cor­rec­tive ac­tions and con­tribut­ing to the con­tin­u­ous im­prove­ment of re­sults. Equip­ment is in­stalled in line with a pre­ven­tive main­te­nance pro­gram. The Ceva Vac­ci­na­tion Ser­vices & Equip­ment team is com­posed by 11 hatch­ery spe­cial­ists, led by Chris van Biljon. As part of their ser­vice pro­gram in South Africa and neigh­bor­ing coun­tries, they visit more than 60 hatch­eries be­long­ing to poul­try-pro­duc­ing cus­tomers per year. Dur­ing 2016, 180 au­dits were per­formed to help set up cor­rec­tive ac­tions and im­prove­ment plans. The ad­vanced data man­age­ment sys­tems allow the team to fol­low the over­all hatch­ery vac­ci­na­tion ef­fi­ciency and evo­lu­tion. To date there are more than 500 vac­ci­na­tion equip­ment units op­er­at­ing in South­ern African coun­tries.
