Full house for CIDAPE-Petersime seminar in Algeria
CIDAPE, exclusive distributor of Petersime for France and French speaking Africa, held a half-day training seminar on ‘Re-Store’ and embryo mortality for their clients in Zeralda, Algeria.
As Cidape and Petersime gained a strong position in the Algerian poultry market over the years, this event drew the attention of a lot of local hatchery managers.
The seminar brought together 115 invitees from all corners of Algeria at the AZ Hotel in Zeralda on Tuesday March 27th, 2018. With ‘Re-Store’ as a key theme, attendees could gain insights on how to cope with long egg storage times.
Incubation specialist Guy Whetherly from the Hatchery Development Department at Petersime was keen to share his experience. In his first presentation, he presented and introduced the latest Re-Store technology and how it decreases fertility losses. The second part of the training seminar was more practical as he explained the working method on how to improve the performance of their hatchery by using egg breakage.
To make it easy for the attending hatchery managers to put their learnings into practice, they received an embryo development poster and a French printed version of the presentation on embryonic death. With this documentation, they could directly share their new insights with their hatchery employees and quickly benefit from what Guy Whetherly taught them.
The attendees were very satisfied too as they provided positive feedback on the organisation and the subject of the seminar.
“I’d like to thank you for the very interesting seminar where all attendees really showed their desire to learn. CIDAPE and Petersime gave and presented themes and explanations to the Algerian hatchery managers in a professional and valuable way. I encourage you to repeat this type of sessions in the future.”, Dr Mounir Benrais DMV-MBA, technical-sanitary advisor and sectorial manager of Algerian poultry farming.
“The presentation was very good. I gained a lot of information from Mr Guy Whetherly. He showed us the key to success when practicing SPIDES (Short Periods of Incubation During Egg Storage). He gave us the principle and the flexibility to do SPIDES management in our hatcheries.” – Mr Mohamed Sobhy, Groupe Kherbouche.
Alice Vinchon, CEO of CIDAPE, and Christophe Boucault, director of CIDAPE were delighted that the event attracted so many attendees and decided to set up similar events more often in the future.
