PROHEALTH aims at improving competitiveness and sustainability of modern pig and poultry farming in Europe.

Production diseases compromise health and welfare of pigs and poultry, generating inefficiencies which reduce profitability and product quality, and increase environmental footprint and antibiotic use.

The PROHEALTH project will develop an understanding of the multi-factorial dimension of animal pathologies linked to the intensification of production and use this to develop, evaluate and disseminate effective control strategies to reduce impact.

PHS have been a part of this EU funded product which is culminating in the PROHEALTH Industry Workshops and Scientific Symposium, taking place in Ghent, Belgium on 27th & 28th November.

Sarah Perez will be speaking at the symposium on the development of new biosecurity protocols in poultry farms.
