Salmonella Typhimurium
, Gumboro, Ma-rek’s disease and Chicken Anaemia is oneof the roles of Pacificvet. An independentoperator, Pacificvet was established in 1993by Bruce Graham and Kent Deitemeyer,who have since become the market lead-ers in supply of vaccines and veterinaryimmunology products for the poultry in-dustry in New Zealand and through thePacific Islands.The company has been working with someclients in one guise or another for up to 30years. This all happens from a modestbase in Christchurch, with just six otherstaff besides themselves.With the help of veterinarian and generalmanager Julie Wagner, Pacificvet has alsoembarked on an outreach education pro-gramme designed to update the veterinarycommunity and other client groups onprinciples of applied veterinary immunologyand on the contribution of the poultry in-dustry towards food safety, especiallywhere Salmonella control is concerned.Pacificvet's future growth continues to liein prevention, not cure, and the focus stayson primary sector clients and updatingtheir product range with new productsaimed at preventive vet care.

In order to catch up with Euro-pean Union requirements forSalmonella control, Portuguese poultryproducers have embraced AviPro
SAL-MONELLA VAC E and T as part of theirprogrammes. Keeping up with the demand,Lohmann has concluded an agreementtherefore with a new distributor, TLH, anew enterprise which will distribute the AviPro
range of poultry vaccines in Portu-gal with the help of two “lobos” (wolves):General Manager Luis Costa (left), whohas been with LAH poultry vaccines forfive years; and newly appointed veteri-narian Luis Piçarra (right), as TechnicalDirector. The “lobos” nickname comes fromthe fact that both are rugby players, havingplayed for the Portuguese national team,known also as the “Wolves”. Costa has re-tired from the sport, and Piçarra is current-lythe vice-captain of the brave squadronwhich, for the first time, represents thecountry at the Rugby World Cup finals(France, September 2007). We will be cheer-ing for them on both endeavours!
24 and 25May, Lohmann Ani-mal Health organised, for the 4thtime, its breeder dinner and clay-pigeonshoot in Shropshire, central England.Matthias Mangels, LAH, opened the tra-ditional dinner with a welcome speechto the highly interested audience, whichrepresented approximately 80% of theUK broiler breeder industry.The dinner was followed, on the next day,by a perfectly organised clay-pigeonshooting competition, which was only dis-turbed by the arrival of our UK agentfor Lohmann vaccines, David Hodson,arousing the crowd as he drove in his vin-tage 1934 Alvis two-seater.For those petrol-heads (“car enthusiasts”)the model is a 12/70 special with a 2.0-litre engine.
