Vaccination in Focus in Romania03 July 2008
ROMANIA - Aviagen responded to customer feedback in Romania by hosting a veterinary seminar in Bucharest aimed at providing support and advice for effective vaccination for flock health.
Over 60 delegates, representing 30 Romanian breeder and broiler companies, attended the seminar. Neil Clark, Technical Service Manager and Akos Klausz, Veterinary Technical Service Manager joined representatives from various vaccine and vaccination equipment suppliers to give presentations that covered a wide range of subjects including vaccination storage, handling and transportation; methods of vaccine application; the importance of biosecurity and vaccination effectiveness.
Neil commented: "It is important to us to be able to react to the needs of our customers quickly and we would not have been able to host the seminar without the support of East-West Priority, our agent in Romania and our other partners in the industry.
We are currently following up from the meeting, by visiting our customers to provide more specific help and advice to allow them to maximise the potential of the vaccines and equipment they purchase, which in turn will mean an improved economic return from their flocks."
One of the attendees, Mariana Stan, Avicola Calarasi's Production Manager added:
"The seminar provided us with the opportunity to improve our vaccination techniques and to discover new tools which can help us improve our vaccination process. It also enabled us to ask the presenters for help in finding solutions to specific problems in our farms.
One of the key messages that I took away from the seminar was the importance of biosecurity and correct vaccine administration."
Following the success of the seminar, the Aviagen regional team plan to repeat the seminar in a number of locations over the next few months.
