Technical Tours


1. Technical Tour:
MTD s.p. Ústrašice

International Poultry Testing is a state-owned enterprise founded by the Ministry of Agriculture of the Czech Republic. The company in its current form was founded in 1992 (the company was originally built in the 1970s as a part of Tábor Breeding Company, which broke up into several entities after the revolution). The main activity is ensuring performance control of poultry according to law 154/2000 Sb., research activity in the field of poultry breeding, and managing the central register of poultry in the Czech Republic.
In the testing station, we control the productivity of the laying hens, chickens, parents of meat types of hens, turkeys, ducks, and geese. As a part of testing, we provide our customers with control of the effectiveness of additives and premixes. We ensure the production of slow-growing chickens for fattening in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.


2. Technical Tour:
RABBIT Trhový Štěpánov (Líšno u Benešova)

Farm Líšno, operated by Mydlářka a.s. and a member of the RABBIT CZ holding, has a stock of 200,000 broilers in total across 4 stables, with 3 newly constructed buildings between 2018 and 2021. The farm carries out a pre-selection of chickens at 31-33 days and harvests them at 37 days. 6.5-7 cycles are completed each year, resulting in a total production of 1.2 million chickens. Feed is supplied from feed producer RABBIT Chotýšany (approximately 15 km from the farm). The chickens are exclusively slaughtered at the Trhový Štěpánov slaughterhouse (approximately 35 km away). Chicken catching is facilitated using the PeerSystem technology. The farm serves as an excellent example of chicken production integration within the RABBIT CZ group, thanks to direct connections with agricultural land, feed production, and chicken slaughter. 


Participants of the XI European Symposium on Poultry Welfare can register for the Technical Tours in the registration form while registering for the event itself. It is possible for one person to attend only one of the Technical Tours. Bus transportation to the place of the Technical Tour and back will be ensured.
