Poultry World hosts 2nd 'Nutrition & Health' webinar

After the amazing success of its first ‘Nutrition & Health’ webinar, Poultry World will host a 2nd – on the 19th November at 14:00 hrs CET.

This webinar will highlight the interactions feeding strategies have on the gastro intestinal tract and hence the overall health of the bird.

 

Speakers:

Naomi de Bruijn – GD researcher

Specialist in veterinary pathology at GD Animal Health in the Poultry Department. Her field of expertise is diagnostic pathology of poultry and mammals. Poultry research on intestinal health of layers and broilers, Clostridium perfringens related intestinal disease. Teaching of veterinary students and poultry veterinarians. She will explain the inner workings of the gut.

Dr Kirsty Gibbs – PhD, Poultry Lead, DuPont Animal Nutrition Innovation

The pressure to remove antibiotic-growth promoters and reduce therapeutic use in animal production has paved the way for feed additive suppliers to come with alternative solutions. At the moment, when producers remove antibiotics from production, a combination of antibiotic alternatives (e.g. probiotics, essential oils, acidifiers) are used to fill the void. This multi-pronged approach can be both confusing and inconsistent, leaving question marks around the value of certain alternatives. Nutribiosis and fundamental science allow us to understand how feed solutions can be used to address current challenges and make reliable recommendations.

Christophe Bostvironnois – DVM, Sr. Global Product Manager Poultry, Chr. Hansen
