Nutriad hosts conferences at VIV Europe
Nutriad hosted scientific presentations at the various conferences and seminars at the VIV Europe in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
While technical and commercial staff attended to industry professionals, the media and academics at the Nutriad booth, Nutriad's business development managers hosted scientific presentations at the various conferences and seminars.
Olga Averkieva, Business Development Manager Mycotoxin Management, presented at the Smart Pig Farming seminar where she summarised the latest insights into mycotoxin risk management of pigs. Mrs. Averkieva explained how pig producers can minimise the risk associated with mycotoxins by analysing weather data and assessing newly harvested grains. She shared the latest technology that allows the use of smartphones to measure mycotoxin levels in grains and mobile applications to calculate the right dosage of the mycotoxin deactivator. Averkieva introduced the Nutriad application Mycoman® that is available free-of-charge and has been well received by producers.
Daniel Ramirez, Business Development Manager Digestive Performance, presented on how feed additives can be used in an optimal way in specific programmes, allowing nutritionists to achieve their targeted effects. Mr. Ramirez highlighted that besides the application of specific feed additives, a broad number of strategies including farm management, hygiene, nutrition and preventive medicine need to be applied to ensure optimum results. An integral approach will ensure a positive return on investment by decreasing risks at the farm level whilst increasing the health status of the animals. Nutriad's Adimix® - sodium butyrate portfolio has for example been proven to fit into a AGP-free strategy, and is supported by strong scientific data.
