Later on in the programme, there were demonstrations of the water and lighting strategy, along with details about hygienic measures during the rearing process. The scheduling of vaccinations was also discussed.

During the practical session, the participants first visited the innovative Verbeek hatchery in Zeewolde. The entire group started  to shower, according to the hygiene regulations, before seeing how Verbeek puts its rearing strategy into practice.
