For nearly seven decades, global poultry breeding company Aviagen® has been participating in the International Production  and Processing Expo (IPPE) in Atlanta, and this year looks forward to reuniting with  customers and industry colleagues at this world-renowned poultry industry event,  which will take place Jan. 25-27.

Balanced breeding contributes to 3 Sustainability pillars

Located in booth B4225, the international Aviagen team will engage with attendees
on its theme and corporate value of “Breeding Sustainability.” This theme reflects the
company’s ongoing breeding goal to promote the Environmental, Social, and
Economic pillars of sustainability. This target is accomplished through a breeding
program that balances production efficiency and performance with bird health and
welfare, leading to benefits for the world’s poultry producers, the people in the
communities they serve, and the planet we all call home.

Sharing latest health, welfare and sustainability knowledge

As the world’s largest trade show for the poultry sector, IPPE presents a great
opportunity for Aviagen to exchange ideas on the latest innovations in poultry
breeding. On Jan. 26 in booth B3649, the following Aviagen experts will share their
knowledge:

-Dr. Sara Reichelt, Aviagen Director of Animal Welfare and Sustainability, will
discuss the topic, “There Aren’t Any Finish Lines in Poultry Welfare.”
-Director of Global Genetics Dr. Santiago Avendaño will present, “Poultry
Breeding’s Contribution to the Environmental Sustainability of the Meat Sector.”
-Dr. Jose J. Bruzual, Senior Poultry Veterinarian, will discuss “Coccidiosis
Vaccination Management in Broiler Breeders.”

“This immense gathering of poultry professionals from around the globe is the ideal
place to showcase our broad portfolio of Arbor Acres®, Indian River®, Ross®, Rowan
Range® and Specialty Male® breeding stock, while sharing our Breeding
Sustainability messages with others who have a passion for poultry and a common
mission of ending hunger and achieving food security for people on every corner of
the earth,” remarked Aviagen CEO Jan Henriksen.

“We are happy to be back at IPPE 2022 in person and part of this exhibition that is
important to the industry worldwide. While webinars and other virtual events have
worked well over the past year and a half, nothing can replace the networking and
interaction that takes place in person,” added Dr. Marc de Beer, President of
Aviagen North America.
