XXth World Veterinary Poultry Association Congress 2017


The 20th World Veterinary Poultry Association Congress takes place in Edinburgh this year with leaders in poultry research and practitioners meeting to explore the past, share the present and helping to forge the future of poultry veterinary science.

Ahead of the 5-day event here is a sneak peek at what the Diamond Plus Partner Boehringher Ingeleim and the Diamond Partner Hipra will have for delegates over the week.




Hipra is proud to be one of the main sponsors of the event, which brings together a large group of specialists in poultry health including researchers, field veterinarians and opinion leaders from around the world. 1200 delegates from 70 different countries are expected.

Over the week Hipra will be presenting and displaying their concept of SMART VACCINATION. This is where - along with vaccines - services around vaccination have a key role in the prevention of disease rather than relying on treatment. Hipra proposes to demonstrate the total control of coccidiosis through SMART VACCINATION.
