Hamlet Protein's Feed Your Brain seminars return to Germany



Hamlet Protein recently relaunched its Feed Your Brain seminars in Germany.


Two sessions were held, focusing on nutrition and health challenges in swine and ruminants (piglets and calves) and poultry (chicks). The seminars are a unique platform that facilitates information exchange between Hamlet Protein nutritionists, industry experts and local producers.


Although Hamlet Protein organised several online seminars during the pandemic, customers showed a clear preference for getting back to face-to-face meetings again, the company said. The line up for both sessions included international experts in animal rearing, nutrition and markets.


"We are very happy to be able to meet with our customers again and exchange ideas on the latest developments in the German market as well as global markets. Hamlet Protein has made significant investments in product development and scientific research in the past year. The Feed Your Brain seminars are an excellent platform to share our latest insights with customers and industry partners," said Hamlet Protein EMEA director Jan Kamphof.

Dr. Maarten de Gussem spoke about supporting coccidiosis vaccine side effects through nutrition in broiler chickens. Wu Meng discussed the outlook of China's feed industry. Dr. Alfred Blanch, category manager (poultry) with Hamlet Protein, shared recent findings on the impact of dietary anti-nutritional factors in chickens.


The Feed Your Brain seminar on swine and ruminant nutrition was moderated by Dr. Heinrich Roling (Herocon Unternehmensberatung). Robert Marani presented on "Trace Minerals Latest Generation".

"Research shows that the inclusion of high-quality ingredients in starter and pre-starter feeds results in improved gut health, better digestion and absorption of feed components and a stronger immune system. That in turn leads to better economics for producers. The attendees of our Feed Your Brain seminars show a lot of interest to learn more about that," said Kamphof.
