Aviagen® Turkeys Russia (ATR) held an official opening event on Wednesday 25th of September to give over 50 existing customers, potential customers and local officials an insight into our brand new laying facility. 

This facility is run by Viktor Fomin General Director, Alan Prokuda Chief Veterinarian and Dmitry Gerasin Financial Controller and is one of seven ATR farms now complete. Once all construction is finalised, five rearing farms and five lay farms will have been produced by ATR to fulfil Russia’s expanding market demand. 

The construction of ATR facilities began in June 2018 and will be complete in March 2020, creating 120 jobs in the region. The first eggs produced by ATR will be sold in November this year and by June 2020, ATRs’ state-of-the-art farms will be operating at full production and have the ability to produce 12 million eggs per annum.

The opening event began at ATR’s head office in Nikolsk, where guests attended speeches from the head of the Nikolsk administration, Ivan Belozertsev, Governor of Penza, Dirk Wesjohann, Owner of Aviagen and Clay Burrows, Managing Director of ATL
