Avida Academy in Medina

During the week of October 2nd, we held our Avida Academy to offer training to 17 different individuals from Chick Master customers around the world. Their companies have recently invested in new Avida incubators. As part of our commitment to training, we include the invitation to attend this three day school about embryology, incubation process, hatchery ventilation, routine maintenance and equipment management. There was a practical session on the use of Maestro software to maximize hatchery performance. We had several presenters during the school that was organized and led by Chad Daniels of Chick Master. On the program was Dr. Mike Wineland, a hatchery consultant and well respected professor of poultry science, Dr. Carolina Diaz, Richard Dix, Rui Silva, Cody Terry, and Paul Rummer, all members of the Chick Master team from USA, Latin America, Europe, and Asia. They each gave presentations as part of this program and we thank them for their important contribution.

On the final day, the group visited a hatchery to see the Avida Symphony with Rock controls in operation. There was an egg breakout session to learn the importance of recognizing the signs of incubation that one can learn by doing this regularly. The group was also able to see a new CC3 ready to be put into use to manage the room environments and reduce energy costs with heat recovery.

There was great comradery with the group both during the daily agenda and in the evening activities that included some magical entertainment. We thank those that participated in the Academy and took the time to spend most of the week with us at our Ohio home. We feel that this event is one that is an important and valuable component in making the investment in Chick Master Avida systems successful and in obtaining a Hatchery in Harmony.

Anakciano in Philippines Commissions New Hatchery

The growth and demand for chicken continues in Southeast Asia. Anakciano Inc. based in Cagayan de Oro has just inaugurated its new hatchery using Avida setters and hatchers. After careful study and comparisons, the decision was made to use Avida S model setters with 18 trolleys and Avida hatchers. “We worked closely with Anakciano to design this new hatchery based on their desire for top quality chicks”, commented Roy Santos, Chick Master Sales Representative in the Philippines, “They have been a great partner and it shows in this new hatchery.”

After committing to the Avida systems, Marilyn Unabia Martinez came to Medina, Ohio in the fall of 2016 to participate in our Avida Academy. During the three day event, Marilyn heard not only from Chick Master technical staff but also from other attendees about the value and benefits of a CC3 Ventilation System. Four weeks later, Anakciano committed to putting in a CC3 to manage the room environments. The hatchery has the combination of Avida single stage incubators and the CC3 to manage the room environments that reduces hatchery operating costs while producing excellent quality and quantity chicks. We appreciate the confidence that Anakciano has with Chick Master and congratulate them for having a Hatchery in Harmony.
