Aviagen’s Central and Eastern (CEE) Team recently organised a special seminar with guest speaker Dr. Stephen R Collett, Clinical Associate Professor, Department of Population Health, Poultry Diagnostic and Research Center, Athens, Georgia, one of the world’s leading experts on gut health.

The seminar, which took place in Vienna and was attended by 15 veterinarians working for and with Aviagen customers in the region.
Dr. Collett updated the attendees on all areas of gut health, including anatomy, physiology and pathology, sharing latest information and practical advice. During the afternoon session, delegates had the opportunity to join in workshops to evaluate gut health.  

Neil Clark, Area Technical Manager, said: “We were delighted to have Dr Collett as a guest speaker at our special gut health seminar. I would like to thank him for his outstanding presentations and Prof. Dr. Michael Hess, together with his team, for assisting with the organisation of, and for providing the facilities at the Vetmeduni Vienna, for the event.
Gut health is such an important topic for today’s poultry industry that we felt it was beneficial to get together the veterinarians working in our region. Good gut health means efficient performance and less antibiotics used, so it’s a ‘win win’ situation all round.”
