Setting a High Target
Jongju Institute of Biological Medicine for Poultry is proud of its great contributions made to the progress of the country’s poultry farming.
The institute, since its founding in the 1960s, has been devoted to the development of preventive medicines for poultry diseases, thus solidifying the foundation for poultry farming of the country and increasing egg and meat production.
Most of the vaccines for poultry diseases being used across the country are products of the institute.
When the outbreak of bird flu presented itself as a difficult problem worldwide, the institute succeeded in developing vaccines in a short span of time and guaranteed the safety of the poultry farming in the country.
Keenly aware of the importance of poultry farming in improving the people’s standard of living, scientists and technicians of the institute are directing their efforts to develop several kinds of vaccines that suit the specific conditions of the country and are highly efficacious.
Researchers at the tissue culture department including its head Dr. Hong Thae Sik, visited several chicken and duck farms to analyze scientifically the origins and characteristics of poultry diseases. In the course of this they found out the reason for decline in egg laying and conceived the idea of the vaccine against it. After pooling their creative wisdom and efforts and conducting dozens of experiments, they successfully made the vaccine against the syndrome of laying decline. It is highly efficacious for preventing the decrease in egg laying by 30-40 %, thus enjoying popularity at chicken farms.
The institute has made considerable progresses in the research into making all the preventive medicines with SPF germ-free hatchery eggs and raising their qualities in recent days.
Along with this it has streamlined and normalized the production of vaccines for bird flu so as to provide them with poultry farms to prevent the occurrence of the disease.
With high patriotic zeal to render greatly to the country’s poultry farming by developing highly-efficacious vaccines and medicines all the scientists and technicians of the institute are making new successes.
