Dr. Bruzual links regular health evaluation with optimal poultry health and livability
Dr. Jose Bruzual of leading global poultry breeder Aviagen® will address critical poultry industry health issues at the American Association of Avian Pathologists (AAAP) annual meeting, Aug. 5-9. The AAAP meeting will be held during the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) convention, Aug. 6-9, in San Antonio, Texas.
During his presentation, Dr. Bruzual, who is currently Regional Technical Manager for Aviagen Latin America, will underscore the importance of regular, proper broiler breeder health evaluations to maintaining optimal bird health and quality. Broiler breeder reproductive physiology as it relates to preventing poultry health issues, as well as the correlation between body weight uniformity and poultry health and performance are other critical health topics that Dr. Bruzual will explore with his audience.
He will also explain the importance of post-mortem pathological examinations, to disease identification and prevention. These examinations serve the poultry industry by pinpointing the underlying causes of diseases in general. Once causes are understood, avian illnesses can be minimized or even prevented, thus improving livability in future birds.
According to Kevin McDaniel, president, Aviagen North America, Aviagen veterinarians, geneticists and nutritionists regularly take part in key industry events such as the AAAP/AVMA convention. “We believe that our involvement in these meetings adds value to the poultry industry at large. When we share our knowledge and discoveries with our colleagues and customers in the industry, we make a useful contribution to broiler breeder health and customer productivity. Experts at Aviagen remain committed to the health and well-being of the birds in our care and to the success of the global poultry industry.”
