The world class veterinary centre which will execute scientific research programmes, deliver quality diagnostic products, medicines and vaccines as well as carry out genetic tests, biodevices and a range of other animal care services was built under ZOETIS’s African Livestock Productivity and Health Advancement initiative (A.L.P.H.A.).

Supported by the ZOETIS/ALPHA Initiative, CHI Farm’s City Laboratory is being established with the purpose of improving livestock health in Nigeria through quality medical supplies and veterinary consultations to local farmers.

According to the General Manager of CHI Farms Limited, Dr. Tunji Olaitan, the laboratory will provide world class veterinary services, diagnosis and medicines for Nigerian farmers at affordable rates.

He further revealed that its partner, ZOETIS, will also support local farmers with all technical expertise as well as materials and equipment needed for education and training to help increase productivity.

“Access to the right medicines, diagnostics laboratory facilities and education nationwide will help farmers raise healthier animals and secure more sustainable revenues, which is critical to the health and economic development of the country. Only healthy animals can produce healthy food and that is what City Laboratory is all about” he said.
