The Wynnstay Group has appointed Steve Marriott to its team of poultry specialists. In his new role, Mr Marriott will give technical support on feed, drawing on his long career experience in pullet rearing and breed genetics to provide tailored advice to Wynnstay customers.

Commenting on his new role, Mr Marriott says: “Throughout my 47 years in the poultry sector, I’ve always been passionate about providing technical support for customers and offering guidance to help optimise bird performance. By getting out on customers’ farms regularly, I’ll be able to really get to know the flocks by monitoring performance indicators such as growth, feed intake and egg weight. This information can be used to identify trends, and provides an early indication if anything isn’t quite right.

“We all know the ticket to quality eggs is in the birds, and my years in the industry have made it clear that feed is integral to bird performance. The team’s broad approach to providing advice on feed and management, which takes all factors into account, enables us to strive for the best possible results in our customers’ flocks,” he concludes.
