April 28th - 30th 2014, Lisbon - Portugal
The Ceva Poultry Vaccinology Summit 2014 took place on April 28th - 30th 2014 in Lisbon, Portugal, and was focused on present and future solutions for Gumboro disease and Infectious Bronchitis control.
The three-day summit was a unique opportunity to bring together some of the most renowned poultry scientists in immunology, poultry pathology, incubation and vaccinology along with our customers and colleagues from across Europe and Africa. As part of Ceva's commitment to the poultry industry, this event was aimed at helping producers to master the control of Gumboro disease, Infectious bronchitis, and Newcastle disease which are some of the most challenging avian diseases with major negative impacts on chicken production.
Our ultimate goal is to help you improve your disease control measures and performance in your day-to-day activity.
