Customers benefit from important flock information presented in their local languages

CAMPINAS, Brazil – In an effort to strengthen its local touch, Aviagen® Latin America will now make available the Ross® Parent Stock (PS) Performance Objectives and PS Nutrition Specifications, along with the Broiler Performance Objectives, in the Portuguese and Spanish languages.

Updated regularly, the PS and Broiler Performance Objectives reflect the latest genetic improvement in areas such as Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR), weight gain and meat yield. They are based on performance recorded in the field and data collected from field trials. On the other hand, the PS Nutrition Specifications list the amounts of each nutrient (including amino acids, energy, vitamins and minerals) needed at each stage to produce healthy, robust Ross birds.

The Nutrition Specifications and Performance Objective documents complement one another and are intended to be used together. Diligently following the Ross nutritional strategy helps birds achieve the Performance Objectives in a balanced way, together advancing biological performance, optimal development, livability and other indicators of bird health and well-being.

“We are proud of our Latin American producers, who, due to their hard work and skillful stockmanship, generally meet and exceed the Ross PS and Broiler Performance Objectives. Offering these essential tools in their local languages is one way we can show our commitment to their success,” explained Marco Aurelio Romagnole de Araujo, Technical Services Manager for Aviagen in Brazil.

Ross producers may download the documents here from the Aviagen websites in Portuguese and Spanish, as well as from the app Ross available in iOS and Android systems:
