Titled ‘Breeder Management and Nutrition: Moving the industry forward’, Novus International’s latest book has been written over 14 chapters, curated to serve as a reference for current broiler breeder production best practices and considerations as well as to be a catalyst for new ideas in management, nutrition, and industry sustainability.
As it is written in the preface of the book, “This book is perhaps needed now more than ever as we see the escalating increase in meat protein production and consumption worldwide.”
The co-curator of the book is Sandrine Durox, Novus International poultry solutions manager, together with the company’s executive regional technical services manager, Silvia Peris and Professor Johan Buyse of KU Leuven, who served as scientific coordinator. “This book brings together the knowledge and know-how of academics, researchers, industry leaders, breeding companies, nutrition companies, veterinarians, and nutritionists to consider how each part of the broiler breeder’s lifecycle can be impacted to optimize performance and positively impact the producer and the industry,” they write.
Novus will host the official book launch on 8 August during World’s Poultry Congress 2022 in Paris.
