Livetec are thrilled to be attending this year’s Egg and Poultry Industry Conference (EPIC), held in the beautiful surroundings of the Celtic Manor Resort, Newport. One of the industry’s pre-eminent events, EPIC is a fantastic opportunity for a range of poultry-focussed businesses to reflect, share and be inspired by each other’s great practice whilst considering the future opportunities and challenges facing the industry.
This year’s conference theme, ‘Food Security – Poultry’s Place in a Sustainable Supply Chain’, could not be more apt or timely, given wider geopolitical contexts that influence supply chains, along with the challenges of inflation on all agricultural sectors. Let’s not also forget the devastating impact that avian influenza outbreaks are having on the poultry industry, adding yet further pressure on already stretched supply lines.
With speakers ranging from the Rt Hon Mark Spencer MP (Minister of State, Defra), and Professor Christine Middlemiss, the UK’s Chief Veterinary Officer to some of the industry’s top producers and academics, this year’s programme is sure to be a packed one, full of insights that will affect all who work in, and rely on, the UK’s poultry sector.
Julian Sparrey, Livetec’s Technical Director, Gordon Samet, Commercial Director, Grant Oliff, Director of Digital Transformation and Ruth Sparrey, Knowledge Hub Lead, will be in attendance, ensuring that Livetec’s passion for protecting livestock through powerful biosecurity solutions is represented and shared with other attendees, and shining a light on the pioneering work we are doing to help the country’s supply chain.
Livetec Systems offer a range of bespoke biosecurity measures and strategies to help all poultry breeders, regardless of the size of their operation. Passionate advocates for prevention being better than cure, Livetec’s Biosecurity Advisory Service can offer a comprehensive site audit of poultry premises, indicating strengths and highlighting weaknesses in a farm’s biosecurity measures.
Our intention is to minimise the risk as much as is possible of them falling victim to avian influenza in the first place. However, if the worst does happen, and AI strikes, Livetec has a range of solutions to help the nation’s farmers, producers and keepers get back on their feet as soon as possible and minimise the impact of an outbreak- keeping Britain’s poultry supply chain moving.
The Livetec team are looking forward to spending some quality time with their peers in the beautiful Welsh countryside and chatting all things chicken and sharing ideas with the industry’s brightest minds.
The Egg and Poultry Industry Conference 2023, takes place on 5th November, at Celtic Manor Resort, Newport, Wales.
