Poultry Professionals Hear it all from Ceva at Lisbon Summit16 May 2014
PORTUGAL - As part of its strong commitment to the poultry industry, Ceva is organising a series of vaccinology summits this spring to provide producers with unique opportunities to get the complete and highest level review regarding the science of vaccinology applied to poultry health management.
Vaccinology is a nascent field of expertise related to the creation and deployment of vaccines; the field 'borrows' from epidemiology, immunology, infectious disease, pediatrics, preventive medicine, public health, virology. This global approach is precisely what Ceva brings to the poultry industry.
Following summits in Russia and Brazil, almost 200 poultry professionals from 21 European and African countries (including veterinarians, poultry production managers, renowned experts and Ceva team managers), met in Lisbon on April 28 to 30, to discuss present and future solutions for Gumboro disease and infectious bronchitis control.
Ceva’s guests had the opportunity to hear from world expert scientists on immunology, poultry pathology, incubation and vaccinology, in order to review the diseases and how to control them, with scientific and practical information on prevention, vaccine administration, process control… from the hatchery to the farm. The critical points to know, to understand, to check and to share, were discussed at length.
“Gumboro disease, infectious bronchitis and Newcastle disease are some of the most challenging avian diseases with major negative impacts on chicken production,” explained Sylvain Comte, Corporate Marketing Director – Poultry, Ceva Group.
“As part of our commitment to the poultry industry, we want to bring the latest data and the best advice to producers. Our ultimate goal is to help our clients improve their disease control measures and performance in their day-to-day activity,” he added.
As these events allow plenty of time for discussion, they are also a great opportunity for Ceva to get in-depth insight into producers’ and veterinarians’ specific needs and outlooks.
