Ross Kelly MRCVS, until recently a partner with the Stowe Veterinary Group in Suffolk, has been appointed as pig products veterinary adviser. Using his broad experience in pig practice Ross will be supporting the company's expanding client base and pig team.

Experienced pig health professional Russ Warin joins directly from Pfizer Animal Health and will manage the company's Northern veterinary and pig producer customer base. David Bailey, currently Central Business Manager with Schering-Plough Animal Health, will take responsibility for the South and Eastern Counties. Sam Gayton, an experienced member of the Schering-Plough livestock business unit, has been appointed as brand manager for the pig portfolio.

Announcing the team expansion, Livestock Business Unit Director Bob Parmenter underlined the company's strategy for the pig sector: " These appointments are key as we build on the success of our established pig portfolio. Our aim is to provide the very best assistance in partnership with vets and their clients. Ultimately the pig producer should reap the true benefit of health management, and in support we are working on a number of key initiatives to communicate our product advantages and technical expertise," he says.

"The industry already recognises the success of our M+Pac M.hyo and Gletvax 6 vaccines, and with a pig licence recently granted for Nuflor, we are looking to build on our customer relationships to become the chosen provider of Pig Health products in the UK."
