AB Vista to feed avian science debate down under

22-08-2011 | | |

AB Vista, a global supplier of new generation micro-ingredients for the animal feed industry, is lending its name and its voice to the 23rd Australian Poultry Science Symposium (APSS). As well as being one of the main sponsors of APSS, the company has been invited to share its expertise in the field of avian science – with a speech by Research Director Mike Bedford.

Mike has a PhD in poultry nutrition and biochemistry, and has published more than 200 papers on related topics. At AB Vista he oversees the research and development of enzyme and yeast products for use in ruminant and non-ruminant feeds.

Hosted and organised by the Poultry Research Foundation and the Australian branch of the World’s Poultry Science Association, APSS 2012 promises to attract delegates and speakers from around the world. Themes and topics under discussion will include a ‘myth-busting’ approach to feed additives and recent research into nutrition for laying hens.

Mike Bedford said: “AB Vista is delighted to be sponsoring and attending Australia’s top avian science conference. I look forward to joining a strong line-up of invited speakers from the world of animal nutrition – and contributing to some important debates.”
