With Asean preparing itself for increased regulation on antibiotics use in animal feed, key decision makers of the poultry industry gathered at Broiler Feed Conferences held in Bangkok, Thailand (Augusts 16-17), and Jakarta, Indonesia (August 21-22).
Dr. Daniel Ramirez, Nutriad's business development manager (Digestive Performance), presented a paper on "Responsible use of antibiotics and the role of functional feed additives after the AGP ban".
"There is a need for a target-released, precision-delivered butyrate like ADIMIX PRECISION, not only for gut support, Clostridium control and gut healing, but especially for the extra benefit on the control of food safety associated challenges such as Salmonella and Campylobacter compared to other alternative products," Dr. Ramirez emphasised.
Nutriad also highlighted APEX 5, which contains a selection of botanicals, which utilise quorum sensing technology as a basal programme. APEX 5 can be used independently or in combination with sodium butyrate.
Dr. Ramirez added: "The Asia Pacific region is increasingly looking for natural solutions to improve animal performance and health. The Nutriad portfolio, combined with improved management practices, can support the reduction of AGP usage as we have seen in other markets across the world."
Chew Boon Kee, regional director for Asia Pacific, was pleased with the bigger attendance of both events in Bangkok and Jakarta. The company considers the conferences an effective way to directly interact with industry professionals and to show the market that Nutriad is able to provide proven solutions should AGPs be restricted or no longer allowed.
