14-06-2010 | | |

Biomin is pleased to be the main sponsor of this year’s European Poultry Conference. Over 1,200 experts in the fields of poultry science and nutrition from all over the world are expected to converge for the conference in the city of Tours, France from 23-27 August 2010.

Organized by the World Poultry Science Association, the 13th European Poultry Conference will cover a broad range of topics such as poultry nutrition, pathology, product safety, welfare and behaviour, economics and marketing, education, environment, genetics, product quality, production systems and reproduction. These seminars will be held from 23-26 August. Technical visits to farms and facilities will take place on the final day, 27 August.

BIOMIN will present 2 technical seminars on issues that plague the poultry industry. The first explores the topic of “Natural Growth Promoters: From the scientific concept to actual field application”, and will be held on 23 August. Pre-registration is recommended. More information about this session, click here.

Within the first seminar are 3 sessions that address the efficacies of natural growth promoters. Phytogenic applications in poultry nutrition will be the focus of the first session. The second session will centre on the role of probiotics in improving poultry performance, while the third and final session will look at additives and how combined applications can be utilized successfully in feed and water.

The 2nd seminar, to be held on 25 Aug, will highlight mycotoxin-related issues in poultry and the use of enzyme deactivation to counter these effects.

A long involvement in the European Poultry Conference notwithstanding, this is the first year BIOMIN is placing its biggest ever sponsorship for the conference. Alongside its commitment as Diamond Sponsor, BIOMIN will continue in its endeavour to being a reliable partner for its customers in the long term, by working to advance technical expertise in nutrition and providing solutions that meet the needs of the global poultry business.
