Aviagen Kft General Manager Balázs Takács welcomed the achievers to the event and offered his congratulations. “I couldn’t be more proud of this year’s highest performers, who serve as an inspiration to producers throughout the region. These farmers work extremely hard and have a deep understanding of their birds’ needs and how to achieve the best conditions to meet these needs.”

Károly Tar, CEO of Hungerit Zrt., attended the ceremony and commented, “It is a great honor for Hungerit Zrt to be awarded by Aviagen Kft for our Ross 400 Club results. The success can be attributed to three factors: the breed, the feed and the management. Following Aviagen management advice and using quality feed enabled us achieve high results with the Ross 308 broiler. In 2019, Hungerit Zrt produced 12.5 million broilers within 50 crops; 34 out of these 50 flocks reached an EPEF above 400. We would like to go even further with the Ross 308 breed in the future, improving feed quality and management to reach new heights in 2020.”
