About this webinar:

After an amazing success of its first edition, Poultry World will now host a 2nd webinar on the topic Nutrition & Health. We invite you to register for this free webinar now! By registering now, you will be automatically reminded when we go live, on the 19th of November at 14.00 hours central European time.
The webinar will highlight the interactions feeding strategies have on the gastro intestinal tract and hence the overall health of the bird. Dr. Kirsty Gibbs, Poultry Lead at Dupont will explain about Nutribiosis as a tool to fully understanding the impact of feed additives and make reliable recommendations to remove antibiotic-growth promoters and reduce therapeutic use, without sacrificing performance. Veterinarian Christophe Bostvironnois, Global Product Manager at Chr. Hansen, will highlight the power of good bacteria in poultry. He will explain why microbiome agility in poultry is important, how to achieve that agility and what the profit to poultry production is.
This webinar is brought to you in cooperation with our partners Dupont and Chr. Hansen.

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. Currently, as 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.
