Thinking back, looking forward
Thinking back on 2018 and looking forward to 2019 one event in particular stuck out for Troutlodge.
Our first International Egg quality symposium was held in August of 2018, and was a first in many ways. It was the first time that we gathered all of our technical staff whose daily routine affects the quality and performance of our commercial eggs to compare notes, talk about improvements and consider some new ideas.
It was the first time we had our production people from Washington, Idaho, and the Isle of Man together, along with guests from our sister company in Chile, to talk about their own individual challenges, and compare motes on farm management, distribution and improvement programmes, and it was definitely the first time that we committed a record of any of our meetings to video for permanent record..
Our own staff were joined by a number of respected industry experts who spoke on subjects as varied as control of ovulation, egg disinfection and cryogenic storage and use of milt, and kindly joined our breakout sessions to discuss the improvement areas we should be addressing and in which order.
Looking forward to 2019 we have already set out on some challenges and trials, both for the improvement of our breeding programme and husbandry / technical in nature in order that Troutlodge can continue to deliver the best product and technical support to our wide variety of customers.
