As the industry leader, Aviagen Turkeys takes its responsibility in the food supply chain seriously and realises that keeping pathogens out of the food chain begins with the primary breeder. Our production systems are designed to ensure the health status of our flocks. The strengths of these systems include the spread of farms geographically, separate rearing and laying facilities, dedicated staff at each farm, strict biosecurity guidelines, dispersal of pedigree stock over all farms and monitoring the health of the flocks from hatch until slaughter.
The implementation of strict biosecurity protocols on the movement of people, stock, equipment and supplies within the production operation ensures that the risk of infection is considerably reduced and the health of the wider turkey industry is protected.
Our dedicated veterinary laboratory ensures comprehensive monitoring of the health status of all the Aviagen Turkeys stock. A rigorous and regularly updated monitoring program ensures the highest health standards and traceability are maintained, meeting or exceeding the official health certification requirements.
