GUT HEALTH - PIG PROGRESS
The theme “Gut Health” has only grown in importance in recent years. Knowing what is happening inside the pigs’ gastro-intestinal tract has become a truly hot topic for the swine industry. Worldwide, the usage of growth-promoting antibiotics is being discouraged, followed by increasing debate on the use of high-level amounts of zinc oxide. At the same time, gut health problems continue to exist. More than ever, therefore, knowledge is needed how to better prepare and help the pigs get through weaning smoothly – and beyond. This seminar at VIV Asia in Bangkok will address various lines of thought and present strategies.

GUT HEALTH - POULTRY WORLD
The seminar will focus on keeping the birds gut healthy, which means that the animal can process the diet more efficiently, has a better immune system and is less susceptible to pathogenic bacteria and viruses. The veterinary, feed and management aspects of nurturing the birds from the time they hatch until they are well settled in the broiler house are put central. The seminar will provide participants with the latest insights into knowledge of the inner workings of the gut and the effects of management- and nutritional interventions.
