VIV Europe is by definition the place where sector leaders launch
their latest developments.
7 November, 2022
Many innovations in technology, food integrator feedings, and farm data management were presented at the VIV Europe Exhibit 2022
Here are a few examples.
A safe and effective in-ovo vaccination and nutrition, disease control programs and effective broilers house cleaning and disinfection, circular chain concept making egg production a co-creation project that brings sustainability to the tables, climate control systems for all weather conditions with minimal energy use and superior air quality, new farming approaches to drastically reduce the need for antibiotics while increasing animal health and sustainability.
ROYAL PAS REFORM LAUNCHED SAFE AND EFFECTIVE
IN-OVO VACCINATION AND NUTRITION
Their new, patented technology SmartVac™ delivers safe and effective in-ovo vaccination and nutrition: an absolute revolutionary solution for the poultry production chain. It will enable the poultry industry to apply a wide range of vaccines in-ovo, including Gumboro, Marek, ND and Coccidiosis vaccines. This is optionally performed in combination with nutritional components: for chickens with a healthy gut, favourable microbiota, enhanced immunity,and thus improved field performance.
LOW VIR-CHECK SCORE =
BETTER CHICKEN GROWTH
Controlling, reducing, eradicating and receiving accreditation for specific viruses: the ultimate goal of any farmer who’s involved in disease control. Royal GD makes it happen with their disease control program including their latest innovation VIR-check.
It’s the best test for assessing the effectiveness of broiler house cleaning and disinfection. This test determines the viral pressure in a broiler house. Based on 10 swabs from 6-7 day old chicks, a quantitative multiplex PCR test assesses how many common resistant intestinal viruses the chicks picked up in the first days of life. The VIR-check score is easy to interpret with four colour coded categories (green, yellow, orange and red).
This tool shows the result of farm hygiene and disinfection and it also stimulates to continuously improve this process. Research shows that chicks with a lower VIR-check score grow faster.
If a farm improves from category red to category green, this will result in more than 100 grams of extra growth per chick in 6 weeks!
