EmTech Hatchery Systems has published the first of an extensive series of Hatch Handouts that cover a wide range of topics for anyone involved in the production of commercial chicks.
Brian Hodgetts is a highly respected Embryologist with over 45 years experience in the UK poultry industry and has kindly given EmTech exclusive rights to publish his recently updated articles.
Brian, a Churchill scholar, started with Ministry of Agriculture, Poultry Division, based at Chelmsford, Essex. He has worked with most of the leading poultry breeding companies and commercial producers and started BH Consulting in 2000.
Although Brian is now semi-retired with 5 children and 11 grand children and maintains a keen interest in restoring old Massey Ferguson tractors, he is happy to be contacted, if you require further information, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
EmTech will publish all of Brian’s Hatch Handouts via our website over the coming months so it is certainly worth looking out for them. Upcoming topics will cover: Egg Candling, Egg Storage, Hatchery Environment, Disease and Hatchability.
Our first EmTech Hatch Handout subject is the Yolk Sac and can be downloaded at the following link: HH1 – THE YOLK SAC
