Our 9th LOHMANN SCHOOL RUSSIA was successfully held in Kazan, Russia from 14th – 18th March 2016. 102 participants including directors and specialists from over 27 companies in Russia and the CIS States, as well as representatives of the government of the Republic of Tatarstan, "Rosptitsesoyuz" and of course, the local media took part in this meeting.
The lecture part of the program consisted of presentations by the team at Lohmann Tierzucht (LTZ). The latest news at LTZ were shared with the audience such as ongoing research and the latest test results as well as the expansion of our breeding programme. In order to fully realise the genetic potential of a chicken, it is necessary to follow a set of rules, to study and apply this knowledge in practice. The selection of today’s chicken is based more on management, feeding and prevention, unlike 10 or 20 years ago. These subjects were also the centre of attention for the participants at the LOHMANN SCHOOL. Special focus was paid to questions on the prevention of diseases, especially diseases in feeding.
For the first time, some of our customers also had the opportunity to make presentations on their own experiences with the breeds at LOHMANN. Special focus was made on the economic advantages of our birds.
The 25th meeting of "Prof. W. Bonitzs LOHMANN CLUB RUSSIA“ was also held during this event. Business-related topics such as pricing, logistics, prospects of development and the future of the LOHMANN company in the Russian Federation, were also discussed generally amongst the leaders of our customers and our own specialists at LOHMANN.
Kazan – the capital of the Republic of Tatarstan, also known as the cultural, scientific and sports center of the region, was the venue of this year’s meeting. Kazan is a point of intersection of trade ways, the economic relations and political views. The last day of the event was spent with a fascinating excursion to the renowned sights in Kazan. Our guests were also treated to a visit of the famous "Raifa Monastery“.
The seminar was concluded with a formal banquet where certificates of participation were also distributed. LOHMANN's team warmly thanked all their guests for their participation and expressed their heartfelt gratitude to its partners for their assistance with the organization of the meeting. We look forward to seeing you at the next LOHMANN SCHOOL!
