Visit to Europe by Heritage Veterinary Corporation
Heritage Veterinary Corporation is very successful in The Philippines as distributor of Dekalb White. Within a few years Heritage took a big share of the layer market in The Philippines, thanks to excellent chick quality, after sales service, and of course the Dekalb genetics.
With the management team of Heritage Veterinary Corporation we planned a visit to VIV Europe, last April. Unfortunately this was not possible because of flight restrictions due to the volcanic eruptions in Iceland.
Instead we decided to make a trip in September. First we visited Hendrix Head Office in Boxmeer, followed by two farm visits. After that we travelled to France to visit the International tradeshow SPACE in Rennes.
In Hendrix office in Boxmeer, we were received by Mr.Servé Hermans, MD of ISA and Mr.Arian Groot, Marketing Director of ISA. After the warm welcome in Hendrix office, we visited two farms with Dekalb White layers. One farm with conventional cages and a farm with a new, alternative housing system (voliere). Results in both farms were quite impressive and also shows that the Dekalb White performs in different housing systems.
After the visits in Holland we moved to Paris, for some sightseeing (Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower) and later on we visited SPACE in Rennes. On the well attended ISA stand we were welcomed by mr.Thijs Hendrix, Mr. Antoon van de Berg and Mr.Servé Hermans and many old and new ISA friends.
