PROHEALTH aims at improving competitiveness and sustainability of modern pig and poultry farming in Europe.
Production diseases compromise health and welfare of pigs and poultry, generating inefficiencies which reduce profitability and product quality, and increase environmental footprint and antibiotic use.
The PROHEALTH project developed an understanding of the multi-factorial dimension of animal pathologies linked to the intensification of production and used this to develop, evaluate and disseminate effective control strategies to reduce impact.
PROHEALTH involved 22 partners from around Europe with expertise in veterinary science and epidemiology, physiology and immunology, genetics, nutrition, socio-economics, welfare and production science of pigs and poultry.
