What is the impact of in-ovo vaccination on your business operations

The hatchery is a central link in the poultry chain, also when it comes to successfully combating poultry diseases. That is why hatchery vaccination is increasingly being used. Whether vaccines have an optimal effect strongly depends on correct administration.

Royal Pas Reform’s new SmartVac™ technology enables 100% safe, consistent and accurate in-ovo vaccination. The system enables the hatchery to apply a wide range of vaccines in-ovo, including Gumboro, Marek, ND and coccidiosis vaccines. The vaccine is injected only into the amniotic fluid, preventing possible injury to the growing embryo.

Together with the newly developed HIPRA vaccines against coccidiosis and Gumboro, the system is the guarantee for a correct build-up of immunity per individual chick. For the poultry farmer it not only provides more ease of use, but also the certainty that broilers can achieve maximum results in terms of health presentations.

During the knowledge session at Dutch Poultry Expo, the impact of in-ovo vaccination on your business operations and the importance of a good planning process for the hatchery will be discussed in more detail.
