MARLBOROUGH, UK, 27 October 2015 – At a time when the poultry production industry is under increasing pressure to produce safer food with reduced antibiotic growth promoters(AGPs) - or in some instances no AGPs at all - the animal nutrition division of DuPont Industrial Biosciences is running a webinar to help poultry producers distinguish between myths and evidence-based facts regarding feed additive alternatives and their impact on healthy bird performance.
The webinar, which will feature recent PSA award winner, Mingan Choct, Chief Executive Officer, Poultry Cooperative Research Centre and a professor at the University of New England, and Beth Galbraith, Senior Group Manager & Site Leader, BioControl Technology at DuPont,will cover the following points:
Alastair Thomas, Business Development Manager for poultry gut health solutions at Danisco Animal Nutrition commented, “Research has shown the significant role that nutrition can play in improving gut health, and thereby positively impacting growth performance and liveability, especially where AGP usage needs to be reduced. We aim to share that research with the webinar attendees so they can begin to separate fact from fiction and understand how achieving animal gut health can positively impact their profitability.”
Attendees at the live webinar will be able to address questions directly to the speakers and will have the opportunity to download the speaker presentation deck. The registration form for both the live and on demand webinar can be found at http://www.wattagnet.com/events/1204-poultry-gut-health-sorting-the-myths-from-the-facts.
