JSC Tyumen Broiler joins Russian Arbor Acres 400 Club

JSC Tyumen Broiler has joined a growing group of high performing poultry producers in Russia by becoming the latest member of the Arbor Acres 400 Club.

The club, which recognises those achieving a European Production Efficiency Factor (EPEF) of over 400, was launched by Aviagen LLC in the CIS region last winter.

Having attained an EPEF score of 424, the JSC Tyumen Broiler team was awarded with a certificate at a special ceremony attended by Tyumen Broiler management, farm workers, Aviagen representatives and local media.

Oksana Velichko, director of JSC Tyumen Broiler, said: "We are constantly improving our level of production to suit market needs. Both the high genetic potential of the Arbor Acres birds and our strict adherence to technical regulations have enabled us to be very competitive.

Production director of Tyumen broiler Shabaldin Sergey added: "Our primary objective here is to obtain the best possible balance of weight gain and liveability at the lowest cost of feed."
