In Memory of

Dan P VET2

Dan Pearson

We are all deeply saddened by the sudden loss of our dear friend and colleague Dan Pearson. Dan will be greatly missed not only as a key member of the Aviagen family but also the wider poultry community.  

Dan’s contribution to the poultry industry was immense, having dedicated over 40 years of his life to a career which was so close to his heart. Dan was respected by his peers for his knowledge, passion and advice built on the foundation of his extensive veterinary experience in poultry.

Dan was a kind, genuine and truly decent man who we will all miss. Our sincere condolences at this very difficult and sad time go to his wife Christina and their extended family.
