Aviagen® India ended 2019 on a high note with a successful Poultry India Exhibition, featuring collaborative meetings and networking among industry colleagues. Aviagen’s full team of customer support specialists was on hand at the show in Hyderabad, Telangana, to welcome customers and visitors to their newly upgraded booth, which was continually busy with producers eager to discuss ways to optimize the performance, health and welfare of the Ross® 308 AP bird.

The Ross 308 AP is enjoying considerable growth throughout India due to the benefits it offers to growers at both the broiler and breeder levels. Some of these traits include a healthy growth rate, strong liveability, high meat yield and field efficiency.
Aviagen also took the opportunity to award its customers who, through dedication and excellence in stockmanship, achieved more than 400 points on the Broiler Performance Index.
Marc Scott, Aviagen India Business Manager, commented, “This show is an important barometer, not only to measure the health of the industry, but also the acceptance of our birds. Judging by the number of visitors to our booth from both existing customers and new enquiries, the Ross 308 AP broilers and breeders are become more and more popular.”
Encouraged by the success at the Hyderabad show, the company plans to increase its participation in regional shows and seminars across India this year.
