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.
