US market leader and the AASV

March 7, 2012

Since the launch of Uniferon® 100 and Uniferon® 200 on the US Market in April last year, Uniferon has grown to become the no. 1 injectable dextran iron supplementation on this important market.

This positive development is not least due to the diligent work of associated partner Ivesco, but must also be seen in the light of the sheer ability to provide a consistently high quality product to swine producers all over the US.

The AASV - staying at the forefront
The American Association of Swine Veterinarians (AASV) hosts  one of the most important conventions within the international pig farming community. From the 10th-13th of March, we will therefore be present at the convention in Denver, Colorado.

The topic of this year's convention is: "Integrating Science, Welfare, and Economics in Practice".

AASV's own Tara Donovan writes in the preface to this year's program: "With the turbulent economic situation in our country, improving business viability is the key to success. In pork production, business viability is directly influenced by the health and performance of the pig."

At Pharmacosmos, we are present at the AASV to ensure that Uniferon continues to play an important role in the health and performance of US pigs.

The AASV is an excellent opportunity to meet and network with some of the most important industry members, and it is also a chance to stay at the very forefront of developments within the areas of pigs' health and growth. We will actively participate by presenting a poster and address issues of importance directly to the pig farming community.
