 Welcome in Tours !

Dear Friends,

On behalf of the French Branch of the WPSA, this is with a great pleasure and honor that we invite you for the upcoming “Combined workshop of Fundamental physiology and Perinatal development in Poultry and Incubation and Fertility Research Group” (Combined IFRG-PDP workshop) which will be located in Tours, France, from the 28th to 30th of August 2019.

This symposium will provide a share-learning platform for new ideas and information on the subjects relative to breeder management, fertility, pre-incubation and incubation conditions, perinatal development and poultry physiology. Its program will allow the building and reinforcement of professional and scientific exchanges that will be a source of progress for poultry production.

Tours is a leading university and touristic city located in the famous Loire Valley full of the famous “Châteaux de la Loire”, the royal castles of Loire Valley. This region was the site of a big part of the French history.

The symposium will be welcome in the hotel Oceania-Univers in the heart of the city at a walking distance of the train station with direct high-speed trains to Paris in about 1 hour.

We are excited to welcome you in Tours, France, for the next IFRG-PDP meeting in August 2019.
