More than 80 major poultry producers and feed millers participated in USSEC’s poultry nutrition seminar in Cairo, Egypt on May 14.
USSEC consultants Dr. Craig Coon, animal nutrition professor at the University of Arkansas, and Mousa Wakileh, Middle East – North Africa (MENA) regional consultant helped to plan and contributed to this event.
Dr. Nabil Darwish, chairman of the Egyptian Poultry Producers Association delivered the following speech at the gathering.
“I would like to welcome you all to our scientific seminar between the Poultry Production Association in Egypt and the U.S. Soybean Export Council. Because we aim at more cooperation between us and the U.S. side, which achieves mutual benefit for all breeders and working companies in the poultry and feed field in Egypt, and for the U. S. side regarding soy and its uses.
“Actually I should not miss thanking our brothers Brent Babb and Mousa Wakileh who work very hard to increase bonds of cooperation year after year, this cooperation that lasted over the six past years which was represented in:
- Conducting many scientific seminars for people working in the poultry and aquaculture fields.
- Attending scientific seminars organized by USSEC in several places like the U.S., Europe, Asia and Africa.
- Training large numbers of people working in the poultry industry, especially youth agriculture engineers and veterinarians over the four past years in specialized courses in the U.S., which greatly resulted in increasing the experience and upgrading the scientific and technical level of trainees.
- Providing scientific publications related to the poultry breeders field to find out the latest technologies worldwide. We hope to increase the collaboration in the near future to drive the industry to new horizons, hoping for more effective cooperation on all levels.
“We seek to improve this cooperation to new horizons like:
- Creating awareness programs for dangers surrounding the industry and how to deal with them.
- Increasing the number of trainees of feed engineers and veterinarians in the courses conducted in the U.S.
- Increasing the number of seminars conducted in Egypt year round.
- Increasing the numbers of people visiting expos in the U.S.
- Working on small product improvements, and working on implementing a successful marketing mechanism to help small breeders to advance the industry, which achieves benefits for both sides, Egyptian and American.”
