– M

r. Dzhavadov, what veterinary

preparations are used by poultry factories

in Russia today?

– Speaking on the preparations of

immunobiological sphere which in-

cludes vaccines, it should be noted

that they account for over dozen at

the moment, especially those that are

in use in egg production and parental

stock breeding.

And number of these medicines will

grow from year to year while every year

brings new deceases to prevent which

it is necessary to develop vaccines.

– What new deceases of birds have

appeared in the world lately? What are

the risks that Russian poultry farmers will

face them?

New infectious deceases are appearing

constantly. It is associated with new

variant strains, new Gumboro disease

virus, new adenovirus infections af-

fecting liver. At the moment the birds

in Russia do not suffer from the above

infections, however one cannot ex-

clude that soon our poultry farmers

will face the above infections. Poultry

and eggs are supplied to Russia from

the foreign countries as well and many

infections are transmitted in a trans-

ovarial way, i.e. through eggs.

– Do you consider numerous emerging

infections a serious problem of the industry?

– A very serious one. Today many vac-

cines are implemented already and

physicians have forgotten about the

principle of interval between vacci-

nations which is unacceptable. We

keep poultry, especially meat one,

for a limited time – breeding period

in contemporary farms makes 32–35

days: this time is enough for a broiler

to gain slaughter weight of 1.5 kg and

it can be forwarded to processing. As

a result, we have to vaccinate a bird

up to 7 times, and immunology laws

requires that period between vaccines

should be 2 weeks ideally and 5 days

«Future belongs to complex engineered

vacc ines. Some exper ts foresee a com-

ing invent ion of a preparat ion that wi l l

unite al l the vacc ines».
