Nutriad sponsors 2017 Asia Layer Feed Quality conferences
As a sponsor of the recently held Asia Layer Feed Quality conferences in Jakarta (Indonesia) and Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), Nutriad also presented on antibiotic alternatives in poultry feed formulations.
The conference series focused on three key areas: translating the latest layer research into practice; reducing feed costs; and developing nutritional strategies to reduce or replace in-feed antibiotics.
Dr. Tim Goossens, Business Manager Digestive Performance, Nutriad Belgium, presented his paper entitled "Can Gut Health Additives be used as alternatives for Antibiotics? Limitations and Opportunities." Dr. Goossens highlighted the available options for AGP replacement and how to apply additives in a strategy to reduce the dependency on antibiotics in poultry feed. He also shared the latest research on the application of ADIMIX PRECISION® in layers and how its application supports feed and food safety. Responding to questions from the audience he explained the scientific data available on Salmonella and Campylobacter control.
