Triplex Swine Seminar
On July 10th, Innovad’s Ukrainian distributor Triplex organized a regional swine seminar with “Heat Stress” as the main topic. 30 participants (vets, managers, technologists) from 11 swine farms good for a total of 35 000 sows were present. Dr Milena Sevastiyanova talked about heat (and general) stress and Innovad’s solutions to alleviate its negative effects.
The attendees showed high interest in the Escent products. The combination of this interest and the special seminar offer from Triplex made the majority of the participating farms purchase Escent for trials. All efforts done by the Triplex team together with the recently published data showing a healthy swine market in Ukraine and the slowly stabilizing African Swine Fever situation give promising expectations for good 2018 Innovad sales in Ukraine.
