The marketing teams representing the National and Export Markets met last week in our facilities of LIVISTO in Cerdanyola del Vallés Barcelona, to analyse the last global marketing actions, foresee the future global and local actions and define the global strategy of the future launches for the Livestock portfolio. The meeting was an opportunity to share experiences and points of view of the different markets and align the strategy of all the teams.
The meeting was held on the 29th of October in Shibin el-Kom, a city located near the Nile river delta. More than 130 veterinary doctors attended the conference, that was a big success. We took this chance not only to introduce the company to the veterinarians but also to talk to them about our products and how to use them in order to improve the health and welfare of the animals.
Expoporcina is a yearly event on pig production with rotating location in the different areas of the country. The visitors – professionals from the pig sector- attend the exhibition to acquire animals, products, and services for their farms. LIVISTO was present with a booth in which our distributor in the area received the local producers in order to inform them about our products and how they can help them in their daily practice in order to raise healthy animals.
LIVISTO was present with a Corporate booth in which our team received our clients from Peru and also from all over Latin America. Members from LIVISTO teams in El Salvador and Spain travelled to Lima to attend the congress. Our team assisted the visitors during the three days of the show and informed them about the products for poultry included in our broad portfolio. Our participation in this kind of events helps us to reach veterinarians and local producers to directly explain them where does LIVISTO come from and everything we can offer them.
At the beginning of September we started a campaign to promote parasite control in El Salvador by raising awareness on its importance among the farmers. The main activity of the campaign were a series of technical talks held in three different locations in the country. In total, around 200 people attended the seminars that were held in San Miguel, Santa Ana and Chalatenango. At the talks, the audience –veterinarians, farmers and pharmacy owners- could learn the advantages of parasite control as well as the need for it in order to achieve good productive results and maintain animal welfare. We, at LIVISTO, are committed with our customers by bringing them updated information about our products and how and when to use them.
Monday’s subject was cattle farming. Our teams from Barcelona and Russia shared their experience in different fields regarding cattle farming such as reproduction programs, antiparasitic protection, or mastitis prevention and treatment. After lunch, we took a tour around the farm in order to learn the particularities of cattle farming in Spain compared to their countries. The farm we visited is certified for Animal Welfare thanks to the good conditions the animals are in. They even play relaxing music to the dry cows so that they are calm and spend more time resting before parturition. It is always interesting for the farmers and veterinarians from other countries to be able to visit farms in different areas in order to compare the different systems and equipments they have. On Tuesday, the topics were pig production and poultry production. During the day we reviewed the most relevant topics in both species and gave a range of solutions to the main pathologies affecting these animals. This kind of events help us to weave stronger links with our customers and also allow us to learn from their needs in their daily practice so that we can bring them new solutions in the future.
Our Technical Services department together with the Marketing Department shared their knowledge in a round table in which everyone could communicate their experiences with LIVISTO products.

Representatives of the national dairy industry and feed, machinery, and pharma companies from the sector were also present in the event.

As LIVISTO, we’re always by the side of the farmers and breeders in order to bring them solutions according to their needs.
