We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
In the last week of September, the second visit of veterinarians from Bulgaria took place in Bioveta. They are clients of the company Lekoom, which is the main partner of Bioveta in this Balkan country and at the same time it is one of the largest and traditional Bulgarian distribution companies of veterinary medications. At the same time, Lekoom is also one of the first foreign partners of Bioveta.
As we had announced recently, Hannover (Germany) hosted in mid-November one of the world's largest trade fairs focused on farm animals’ husbandry, breeding, and care for their health & welfare. Our company was represented by three colleagues from the marketing and sales section (Marek Vystavěl, Věra Chlupová, Jiří Vojtěch), our representative for Hungary Zoltán Szakács, and our business partner from the United Arab Emirates Samy Shazly. All five of them barely had a minute to spare – the fair was a four-day marathon of negotiations with business partners from all over the world. Big part of it were discussions about new contracts; but due to the uncertainty prevailing in virtually all markets, meetings with current business partners focused on the coming year were frequent, too. We would like to thank all visitors to our stand for their interest and trust; please let us wish everyone a peaceful end of the year and a successful start of the new one!
On November 25 and 26th, a seminar was held in the university town of Stara Zagora, organized by the Bulgarian Association VL for Farm Animals (BAVFA) in cooperation with the Lekoom company. The seminar also took place thanks to significant sponsorship from the management of Bioveta. Among the main speakers was MVDr. Pavel Raška. In his presentation he focused on vaccination programs for cattle and their importance in the prevention of diseases of calves. Another important topic was the therapy and prevention of mastitis of cows. The second main speaker was MVDr. Josef Zajíc. His lecture was mainly focused on the reproduction of animals and potential complications of the cows' health status after parturition. Doc. Dr. Chavdar Filipov, the company Lekoom associate, also introduced participants to the new trends in veterinary immunology.
The summit was held on 11.11. 2022 in Kyiv, despite the state of war in Ukraine. At this long-awaited meeting, the main paths of development of individual areas of animal production were discussed, as the seed of the reconstruction of the Ukrainian countryside. Bioveta Ukraine also presented itself at the meeting, as a stable and trustworthy partner of farmers, which, despite the difficult conditions this year, helped manage difficult situations in livestock farms. Since Bioveta Ukraine wants to be involved in the poultry industry, our presence at the event was well received by poultry farmers. We hope that our activities, even in times of war in the country, will help to push the Bioveta brand in Ukraine a little higher.
