Founded in 1896, the Real Escuela de Avicultura (Royal School
of Poultry) has devoted more than 100 years to training of poultry
business professionals, as well as publishing the trade magazines
SELECCIONES AVICOLAS and CUNICULTURA (Poultry Digest and
Rabbit Breeding) and the edition of books on these topics.
The School has always been very sensible to the extreme
importance of Research and Development in the progress of poultry
industry. Therefore, during the last 38 years has been running industry
related research projects for leading poultry industries at its own
Experimental Farm. These projects have strongly influenced the launch of
new products and/or the development of most advanced production systems,
all of them key to the progress of the poultry industry.
The acknowledgement of the farm, by the Generalitat de
Cataluña (the Catalan Autonomous Government) as a "Center of Breeding,
Supply and User of Experimental Animals" (Register No B9900045),
officially endorses the type of trials being carried out.
The Experimental Farm premises, which included several modern
buildings, can easily adapt to the different requirements involved in
running each trial. Qualified staff ensure the most appropriate animal
management for research and specially skilled technicians are always on
site to assure the optimal levels of development of each trial.
The School, due to its proven experience, ensures the highest
commitment and accuracy to potential clients, becoming the ideal choice
for a wide range of poultry research studies such as:
- New product pre-test prior to the commercial launching.
- LMR studies.
- New product development (additives, growth promoters, etc.)
- Product comparison vs competitors.
- Option Suitability test , regarding different husbandry methods.
- Breeding lines optimal adaptation to each husbandry system
without interruption of productive cycle and without sanitary risks.
With no need for a big investment or a high risk, we can run
different type of trials, adapted to the specific requirements of each
In summary, we offer a scientific and professional environment
in safe premises with permanent and direct supervision of our team of
Veterinarians, Agriculture Engineers and Technicians of the Royal School
