FLOCKMAN was on Stand 262 D, where David explained the principles and scientific background to the system, and Harry Shepherd, one of the UK's most successful FLOCKMAN users, described how he used it to get 3 out of 4 of his first flocks over 400 EPEF on the system, with the fourth one at a very high 430!
The stand back drop showed Harry, his 40,000 bird house and performance detail of his 430 EPEF crop.
A5 leaflets explained the birds' better lifestyle, a day in their life and a Vet's report gave the health benefits.
