It will provide pig farmers with an opportunity to learn about vaccine development, administration methods, best practice and more, from some well-known pharmaceutical companies.

Correct handling, storage and administration is key to vaccines working effectively. They are expensive, technical products which need to be treated as such. Vaccines can have a big impact on pig production, but it is important to remember that they are not a silver bullet to control all disease.

AHDB’s national pig club meeting from 3.30pm to 5.30pm on April 20 will feature discussions with international experts who want to help producers get the most from their vaccines.

Pharmaceutical companies spend millions getting vaccines onto the market but what happens once they leave their hands can make or break the success of them on-farm.

With margins so tight, producers can’t afford not to look after and administer vaccines correctly, which is why we are holding this webinar. We want to tell the whole story, from development to administration, and give people the opportunity to ask questions to help them get the most from them.
