Central theme of Poultry Worlds hybrid seminar during VIV Europe will be how we can achieve healthier poultry through a balanced gut health and supplying the bird with all the necessary nutrients its requires. Learn from our experts how to cope with, or even anticipate on health challenges, how to choose the right ingredients and additives and last but not least how to get the best performing flock with the least of worries. The hybrid seminar will highlight the interactions feeding strategies have on the gastro intestinal tract and hence the overall health of the bird.
