Another edition of our LOHMANN SCHOOL took place in Cuxhaven from 8-11 May. A total of 39 participants from 23 countries accepted our invitation and joined the seminar. Our technical service team prepared an interesting and informative programme for our guests who stood to benefit a lot from the one week of training.


The programme kicked off with a welcome dinner on Sunday evening, so participants had a chance to get to know each other before the seminar started the next morning.

From management to feed and water

On Monday, different lectures were held on housing and brooding, rearing management, production management and hatching egg handling. On the second day, the main theme was feeding, feed formulation and water. In addition to handling technical issues, we also made sure there was time to relax! We organised a trip to our neighbouring city Bremerhaven in the afternoon, where everyone had some free time for sightseeing or shopping.

Veterinary issues

Our vets took the lead on Wednesday and discussed the vaccination of PS and commercials and important diseases in the modern layer industry. In order to deepen the knowledge on the recurrent topic of hygiene and biosecurity, we prepared a combination of presentations and a workshop. In the evening, the participants’ singing voices were put to the test at our karaoke session after a group dinner.

Final day in Cuxhaven

Thursday, which was the final day in Cuxhaven, did not focus on a single topic. The participants were informed about production management, poultry red mite and LOHMANN genetics and breeding. Our “Flockman4U” program was also introduced and the participants had the opportunity to gain some practical experience. Finally, our managing director Mr. Ramírez closed the meeting with his general presentation on LOHMANN. The final day of the seminar concluded with a dinner during which the certificates of attendance were presented.


Next morning the group had an excursion to Big Dutchman. Afterwards, they travelled to Bremen for some free time for shopping, sightseeing or just relaxing. It gives us great pleasure to conclude that this year’s edition of the LOHMANN SCHOOL was once again a great sucess!
