MSD Animal Health hosts Poultry Congress in Romania
MSD Animal Health hosted a European High Quality Poultry Congress in Bucharest, Romania, on April 21-22.
The event highlighted MSD Animal Health's ongoing commitment to poultry producers, bringing together a wide range of experts to discuss the latest advances in production and management across the poultry industry to ensure success by improving health, productivity and the well-being of flocks.
More than 160 delegates from across Europe attended the two-day congress. The first day focused on flock protection which included informative presentations about the economic impact observed when flocks are protected from disease, and the crucial need for vaccines and convenient application and diagnostic options to ensure proper health.
Attendees learned about the importance of maintaining intestinal health for the broiler breeder, specifically coccidiosis. MSD Animal Health experts discussed the priority on managing vaccine application, field cycling, and the investments the company was making to ensure supply would be available to meet the growing customer demand for these vital vaccines.
On day two, attendees received practical tips on controlling a high performing vaccination programme. This is followed by presentations demonstrating the superior performance of the company's poultry vaccines versus inactivated IB vaccines, and new equipment available to customers that will make vaccination easier and more affordable.
More than 3,000 industry professionals from 100 countries have participated in MSD Animal Health's High Quality Congresses.
