International FACTA Coccidiosis Symposium on October 7th - Image 1
Caring for birds’ health is an essential factor in achieving good production levels. When diseases such as coccidiosis afflict birds, they cause physical losses for the flock and economic losses for producers. Recent estimates show that annual losses amount to about US$ 14,8 billion across global production.
Coccidiosis is a parasitic disease that affects birds’ intestines, mainly causing productivity losses. The disease is caused by the Eimeria protozoan and affects birds’ development, causing diminished nutrient absorption and allowing for the development of other pathologies. Coccidiosis also causes enteritis, a disease that leads to delayed bird development and may be lethal in the more serious cases, such as necrotic enteritis.
To address this theme of great importance for global aviculture, the APINCO Foundation for Poultry Science and Technology (FACTA) will hold the International Coccidiosis Symposium on October 07, 2021, between 8:30 am and 5:30 pm, 100% online.
FACTA: International Coccidiosis Symposium
Even though it is widely known, coccidiosis is not an easy disease to control, considering the possibilities of failures in the utilized programs. A complete control and prevention program that makes use of different strategies is indicated.
In this context, the International Coccidiosis Symposium comes forward as a forum to develop strategies and therefore maintain the level that has been reached after years of scientific and technological development. With this objective, FACTA has put together a wide-ranging technical and scientific program that addresses the issues of producers from Brazil and other poultry meat producing countries.
Through the symposium, specialists from the poultry sector will debate various aspects involved in the poultry chain in regards to coccidiosis control. Other important themes for updating veterinarians and other professionals about the importance of coccidiosis will also be addressed, as well as biosecurity measures and production preventive practices.
Among the debated issues, some highlights are coccidiosis’ effects on microbiota, the role of the intestine in the immune response against coccidia, coccidiosis control, technologies for coccidiosis control, strategies for coccidiosis control and monitoring, among others. The views of the world’s main players will also be reunited in a panel to discuss the subject.
