The French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (ANSES) will be at the International Livestock Trade Faire in Rennes from 11 to 14 September 2012.

The event will once again be an opportunity for ANSES to strengthen its pivotal ties with farming sector professionals.

During the event, ANSES will present its work on antimicrobial resistance and epidemiological surveillance, two essential topics for the Agency. The missions and activities of its laboratories in western France, Ploufragan-Plouzané and Fougères, as well as those handled by the French Agency for Veterinary Medicinal Products, will also be highlighted.

These ANSES laboratories are specialised in the study of poultry, pigs and farmed fish, and have authority in the field of veterinary medicinal products. They contribute both to improving the health and well-being of animals and to a better understanding of the issues involved in health risk prevention.

ANSES will hold a conference on the prioritisation of animal diseases on 12 September in Room 1 of the "Espace région Bretagne" (Brittany region area) from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm. The conference will present the results of a recently-published fundamental work that offers a tool for ranking the animal diseases found in France in order to establish priorities for the implementation of animal disease control and prevention measures.

You will find ANSES at the Saint Brieuc–Ploufragan Zoopole stand:

Hall 4, Aisle A, Stand 36
