Feed and health experts descend on Kentucky

Experts in the animal health and feed industry are gathering to discuss what new technologies, solutions and leadership is required to produce more food while resources become increasingly scarce.


Maintaining profitability while increasing output and limiting inputs will be one of the critical topics discussed at the 2011 27th Annual Alltech International Animal Health and Nutrition Symposium in Kentucky, USA.

“Sustainable profitability must be our byword and we continue to explore ways in which new technology, the innovative use of new raw materials and adding value to conventional agricultural products can reduce the impact of agriculture on the environment,” said Ian Leach, regional director of Alltech UK.

The symposium will be made up of roundtable discussions, seminars and breakout sessions focusing on all livestock sectors, from poultry to beef and dairy, pig, equine, aquaculture and pets.

Specific topics will be:

• Programmed nutrition to maximise calorie conversion and meat quality

• Technology to maximise release of nutrients from DDGs and other feedstuffs

• Formulation to minimise nutrient waste in the diet

• Using branding to communicate the power of good nutrition to consumers

• Strategies to optimise resources, reduce environmental impact and drive new energy efficiencies

• Using new media to communicate directly with consumers
