NOVUS to share innovation supporting the poultry industry at IPPE in Georgia, US




NOVUS poultry experts will share the latest research in trace minerals, footpad health and carcass quality at the International Production and Processing Expo (IPPE) held between January 30 and February 1 next year in Atlanta, Georgia, the United States.


The experts will present four abstracts as part of the International Poultry Scientific Forum (IPSF), which is held in conjunction with IPPE. The poster and oral presentations take place on January 29-30 at the Georgia World Congress Center.


"IPSF is the premiere event to learn the latest research on environmental management, nutrition, physiology, pathology and disease," said Gonzalo Prat, NOVUS' senior director and managing director for the Americas. "We are honored to participate in the forum to share how intelligent nutrition is supporting bird health and producer goals."


The NOVUS abstracts are:


    - "Effect of Chelated Trace Minerals in Laying Hens during a Second Production Period after Molting": An oral presentation by Hugo Romero, PhD, global poultry technology executive manager;


    - "Feeding Methionine Hydroxy Analogue Chelated Trace Minerals Reduces Mineral Excretion to the Environment in Broiler Chickens": An oral presentation by Frances Yan, PhD, global poultry research senior manager;


    - "Supplementation of Cu Methionine Hydroxy Analogue Chelate Maintains Chickens' Performance and Reduces Mineral Excretion and Footpad Dermatitis": An oral presentation by Kelen Zavarize, PhD, technical services manager for Latin America North;


    - "Evaluation of Zn, Cu and Mn Methionine Hydroxy Analogue Chelate associated with Benzoic Acid and Essential Oils on Performance, Incidence of Footpad Lesions and Carcass Quality in Broilers": A poster presentation by Kelen Zavarize, PhD, technical services manager for Latin America North.


Dr. Zavarize said the abstracts from NOVUS showcase the importance of highly bioavailable trace minerals in poultry production.


"The poultry industry recognises that trace minerals support health and performance but not all minerals are the same," she said. "Research like this showcases the difference mineral source can make, both on its own and in combination with other products."


One of Dr. Zavarize's abstracts looks at the results of feeding broilers zinc, copper and manganese as MINTREX® Bis-Chelated Trace Minerals in combination with benzoic acid source AVIMATRIX® Feed Solution and NEXT ENHANCE® 150 Feed Solution, a microencapsulated source of thymol and carvacrol.


"The results showed this combination improved overall performance, and footpad and tissue health in field conditions, thereby producing more high-quality broilers for our customers," Dr. Zavarize said.
