Specialist of the hygiene and sanitation department, Candidate of Veterinary Science Mark Ivanov reported on a topic relevant for many farms – "External and internal bioprotection as the basis for favorable environment at a poultry enterprise". He emphasized the need to ensure maximum biosafety of the pig complex, which reduces the consequences of possible contagion inside the complex and prevents carrying of infection from the outside. It was important for the undergraduates to see the practical application of the acquired knowledge, which in future work will allow them to build a high-quality prevention system aimed at preventing contact of pathogens with poultry. Further in his speech, Mark Ivanov spoke about deratization and disinsection, about tools, rules, documentation, issues related to vermins, and methods of their successful control in practice.

The presentation considered in detail the etiology, pathogenesis, clinical progression of diseases, pathoanatomic changes, as well as the main aspects of diagnosis, prevention and therapy for these types of pathology. Emphasis was placed on the features of infectious diseases in piglets and the main factors affecting the epizootic process progression. The Academy undergraduates listened with interest and made notes of the main presentation points, which could be useful straight away at the training practice in farms. It's worth noting that in their presentations, the specialists of the VIC Group talked not only about diseases and biosafety, about practical schemes and methods of work, but also focus the students' attention on the fact that the veterinary profession is currently in high demand, that it is an advanced professional field that requires serious fundamental knowledge. At the end of the seminars, the advisors showed a film about the modern pharmaceutical plant and the operation areas of the VIC group.
