- General News
USSEC consultants Alberto Celis and Fradbelin Escarraman travelled to Port Au Prince, Haiti, to participate in a seminar titled, “International Training on Poultry Nutrition.” The seminar included five conferences and was organized by the National Soybean Research Lab (NSRL) at the University of Illinois. The NSRL, in cooperation with the Haitian Association for the Livestock Promotion (AHPEL), developed a training program for Haitian poultry producers and requested USSEC’s participation in the seminar.
During the seminar, Mr Celis reviewed the differences between various ingredients, as well as ingredients from different origins, in order to determine why it is important to evaluate feedstuffs based on nutritional value rather than price. Other topics discussed and presented at this event were NSRL activities; the basics of poultry nutrition; and information provided by Iowa State University reviewing the economics behind egg production in the U.S. Approximately 60 people, mainly poultry producers and employees of poultry farms in Haiti, attended the seminar.
