New generation vaccines in poultry farming: current use and future perspectives. 10 am, Smart Agricolture Conference Room

A correct choice of vaccines and the definition of vaccination programs to prevent the occurrence of the most popular infectious diseases have always played a fundamental role in modern poultry farming. Their importance has been growing even more over the last few years, both due to a lower use of antibiotics and to the great development of research on new vaccines.

Time has come to properly analyze the advantages that vaccines developed through new technologies can offer to poultry farmers and to consider future perspectives.

The International Poultry Forum is one of the major international scientific appointments on poultry farming. Now at its 6th edition, it involves the participation of some of the most qualified experts worldwide who have been dealing with different aspects related to poultry farming: from veterinary issues to management procedures.

First results of the OK Net EcoFeed Project

3.15 pm, Bio Village

The European project OK Net EcoFeed deals with issues related to animal nutrition in organic monogastric livestock farms, such as poultry and pig breeding farms. Starting from scientific knowledge and available expertise on the production of organic feedstuff, the project aims at creating a network to favor information exchange among breeders, farmers, economic players and researchers in order to reach the objective of 100% organic and local animal feed use. Because of their proteins content, organic feed stuff are often imported, thus causing problems for organic farming sustainability and for consumers’ trust.
