Egypt’s SEC continues to provide support and technical training for poultry producers in the MENA region.
This week, the U.S. Soybean Export Council (USSEC) held its ninth poultry production training program through the Egypt Soy Excellence Center. The five-hour webinar was held in cooperation with Cairo University and the Egyptian Poultry Association on Tuesday, February 9.
70 participants from the poultry industry in the Middle East/North Africa (MENA) region took part in “Modern Techniques for the Management of Broiler Breeder.” Topics covered in depth during the webinar included: “Vitamins and Minerals in Breeders”; “How to Reach Optimum Body Weight, Uniformity and Sexual Maturity”; “The Male Reproductive System and Fertility”; and “Principle of Poultry House Ventilation.” An interactive roundtable discussion provided participants with the opportunity to ask questions of the speakers and continue their discussion.
USSEC plays an important role in improving the performance of Egypt’s poultry production by helping to lower production costs and increase consumption. Poultry is a major consumer of soybean meal in Egypt and the industry continues to grow. Government ownership in crushing and poultry production is helping to increase the level of protein consumption per capita per day.
