Climate change affects animals in a number of ways; this is happening in all parts of the world, and especially in a tropical country like Cambodia. The rainy season, which is upon the Kingdom now, is the worst season for conducting animal husbandry.
Seasonal and natural health problems such as respiratory and gastro-intestinal diseases in their animals are the most worrying factors for farmers. As a result, the growth rate and efficiency of production would be significantly reduced during this period. This then leads to a reduced quality and quantity of meat in the market, which affects many end-consumers.
Therefore, taking extra care of animals on the farm this season is the best way to protect the health and livelihoods of the animal farming business. Charoen Pokphand Foods Public Company Limited (CPF) - Animal Health Service department has a commitment: “We provide animal health solution, We protect your food.”
The past twenty years have seen CP develop the competence of animal husbandry within the country. Most animal farmers now trust CP Veterinary Drug consultants under the supervision of its own Animal Health Service.
CP strictly follows five standards in animal farming to maintain standards and the quality of our products in the swine and poultry market in our company farms and contract farming. These are:
(1) Excellent animal housing and barns
(2) Excellent animal breed
(3) Excellent management
(4) Excellent feeds
(5) Disease prevention.
The CP animal health department goes a step further and provides veterinarian technical service and training programs for the farmers in farm management.
Bio-security is one of the major concerns of the animal health department, especially this season. This is the first screening on how to protect animals from contracting the virus and reduce the risk of spreading disease agents within the farm.
Bio-security also requires the adoption of meticulous attitudes and proper protocol behavior of the farmers to lessen the risk of virus or disease. It contributes to the better health of animals.
Dr Kriangsak Laosakul, a veterinarian from CP, says, “Your good food begins with a good farm.”
Part of having a good farm is the prevention and control of diseases, which is strongly recommended by CP Vets. The CP Vet Drugs team has its own laboratory to check animal health and disease, and handles and manages all medicine and vaccine programmes needed for the farms.
Its Technical Sales team provides support and researches for the best medicine from international suppliers that are suitable for different kinds of animal situational disease on the farm. We have eight categories of Vet Drugs to support animal health and these are vaccines (for poultry and swine), antibiotics, support-drugs (such as vitamins and minerals), alternative medicines, insecticides, disinfectants, pest control and miscellaneous. This ensures that CP Vet Drugs can cater all your animal health issues.
“Your animal health is my job,” says Dr. Dedduang Ondum, Assistant Vice President for Vet Drug Business.
The CP Animal Health Department is more than willing to engage Cambodian farmers in the overall animal husbandry industry, and will be glad to get you started on your animal husbandry business. Our animal health technical team experts are available to provide you with advice and consultations. In this way, Cambodians will stand to gain more knowledge in animal health, and produce quality meats for the good of the country.
