Aviagen: Value of vaccination hot topic for Ross customers in Zambia
Achieving vaccination success was the key theme for the recent Ross® Breeders Zambia seminar held on December 13.
Ross Breeders Zambia Ltd., a key Ross distributor in Africa, welcomed 25 customers and employees to its premises in Mimosa for the event.
Attendees heard presentations from Aviagen® veterinarian Dr. Pavel Shkarlat on topics particularly relevant to the African continent including vaccination, biosecurity and disinfection. The advice focused on ensuring Ross birds perform to the best of their potential in challenging local conditions.
"This seminar provided an ideal opportunity to continue sharing expertise and advice with our distributor and in turn with Ross Breeders Zambia's customers on all aspects of effective vaccination and health management," Dr. Shkarlat says. "Providing valuable knowledge and having specialist support available in this way is important to Ross to not only help improve the performance of the Ross 308 but also to help develop the poultry industry in the region."
