SIAVIS adds symposium on Salmonella on the agenda
During the International Salon for Aviculture and Swine in Brazil (27-29 August 2019), the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA) will promote a symposium on salmonella as the quality and maintenance of sanitary status are increasing demands of the international market.
"Scheduled for the last day of SIAVS, the Symposium on Salmonella will feature intense programming of lectures and debates and will address topics such as the international market, critical points of the control procedures for salmonella and the use of prebiotics, Probiotics and vaccines in the prevention of Salmonella infections. The symposium on Salmonella will be an opportunity to update the knowledge of technicians on preventive and control measures, since this issue is extremely important for poultry production, due to its impact on the productivity of birds", declared Ariel Mendes, coordinator of SIAVS.
Also, another hot topic will be the ASF situation in China and the need for animal protein in this market. "With the sharp rise in domestic consumption, Brazil’s egg-producing sector turns its eyes to opportunities in the international market. The pressure that Chinese ASF problems will exert on the international trade in protein should not be confined to meat. More eggs will also be demanded. And Brazil needs to be prepared to take advantage of this opportunity," said Ricardo Santin, executive director of ABPA and president of Instituto Ovos Brasil.

The presentation will be commented by the Executive Secretary of the Poultry and Poultry Associations of Espírito Santo (AVES and ASES), Nélio Hand.
