Poultry Webinar Infectious Bronchitis
Thursday 20 November at 15:00u
CURRENT CHALLENGES AND TOOLS FOR BUILDING OPTIMUM IB PROTECTION
Infectious Bronchitis threatens nearly every poultry operation, and the effects are significant: respiratory disease, kidney damage, oviduct damage and reduced performance, among other challenges. And prevention of IB season after season is complex. Due to changing conditions and new virus strains, there is no one-size-fits-all model for protecting your operation. This can be illustrated by the latest developments with the GA08 strain in the U.S. and the QX strain in Europe.
During these exclusive webinars, you will learn how to build an effective IB prevention program customized to meet challenges specific to your operation – from proper diagnosis through vaccine monitoring. This webinar will focus on Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
This webinar is sponsored by Zoetis and presented by WATT Global Media.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
- Impact and prevalence of variant IBV strains impacting production in the United States, Europe, Africa and the Middle East
- Keys for building an effective IB prevention program customized to meet challenges specific to your operation — from proper diagnosis through vaccine monitoring
- Recent data illustrating the efficacy of strain-specific vaccines and their added value when used in conventional programs
