Locomotory Disorder in Poultry Seminar, 25th – 28th September 2018, Bruges, Belgium
The annual Huvepharma® Seminar for Locomotory Disorders in Poultry took place from September 25th to September 28th in the beautiful medieval city of Bruges, Belgium. The seminar attracted more than 100 participants from 27 different countries, who came to learn about the current status on locomotory disorders in poultry. Several international experts focused in their talks on topics such as footpad dermatitis, slaughterhouse condemnations, muscular abnormalities and locomotory disorders in chickens and turkeys. During the two days, different problems, their causes and the options for control were discussed, the team making sure that each participant would return home with new knowledge.
Participants were invited to share their experience by presenting case reports, adding extra practical relevance to the seminar. Half a day of the seminar was dedicated to a practical session at the University of Ghent: in this session participants had the possibility to see examples of several pathologies and perform themselves scoring for footpad dermatitis.
Besides the scientific part, Huvepharma® showed again how important good organization and hospitality is and tried to make it an experience to remember for the different participants.
