The course on coccidiosis was given by Marc Pagès, Manager R&D Biologicals for Coccidiosis at HIPRA, and Martina Dardi, HIPRA’s Corporate Brand Manager for Coccidiosis.
Regarding the course on Pneumovirs and Gumboro, this was given by HIPRA’S Corporate Product Manager for Pneumovirus, Javier S. Corella and HIPRA’S Corporate Product Manager for Gumboro, Dario Zammerini, with the collaboration of Mar Biarnés, Technical Director of CESAC (Reference Laboratory for Poultry Diseases in Spain) and Laura Valls, Hipra Diagnos Coordinator.
This was the first time that HIPRA was able to gather together more than 40 professionals from 13 different countries around the world for a whole week for these 3 specific courses on the main diseases in poultry.
In the case of Coccidiosis, both sessions included practical aspects of the disease such as identifying lesions produced by different Eimeria species, their location in the digestive tract and the extent of injury caused.
The courses were completed with practical examples and auditing of the application of the live attenuated coccidiosis “coarse spray” vaccines and a demonstration of HIPRA's SMART VACCINATION service.
This innovative concept is composed by Hipraspray® (a specific device for the administration of EVALON® and HIPRACOX® vaccines against coccidiosis in Poultry) and the HIPRALINK® vaccination management tool. It all provides traceability services and allows flawless documentation of the vaccination process in the hatchery, ensuring that field technicians receive real-time information about the vaccination process.
