VISION OF ESPHM 2022

I work with sows, weaners and finnishers and is very concerned about the importance of what drives the farmers. I think that most vets are very good at diagnostics; health management and eradication of different diseases, but how do you make farmers do as you tell? Especially according to eradication programmes the importance of knowing what is going on in the farm when you are not there is important – and the way to know that is to have a confident relationship with the farmers and the workers in the farm.

My main interest according to diseases are eradication programmes concerning PRRS.

My vision for the ESPHM 2022 is to be part of a physical congress delivering new aspect of diseases in swine concerning treatment, eradication and general management advicing. In the congress room and by socialising.
Looking forward to se you all!
