Multinational feed additives producer organized a symposium during the 2017 Midwest Poultry in Minneapolis (USA) facilitating a discussion amongst industry leaders on addressing current poultry production challenges, including the best way to tackle the new Veterinary Feed Directive and raising poultry without antibiotics.
The meeting was attended by representatives from the top poultry producers and feed producers in the country. Staff from the top 2 turkey producers, with a combined volume of over 2.5 billion pounds of turkey meat a year, participated, the top 3 broiler producers, responsible for over 35 million birds processed a week, were present as well as was the largest brand on the egg industry in US.
Senior management from participating companies highly valued the input on the topics discussed and the opportunity to interact with industry colleagues.
Safety studies (GRAS) on feed additives used in the industry, such as Nutriad’s precision delivery coated Sodium Butyrate (ULTRAMIX®) were largely discussed and considered to be the best path for feed additives suppliers.
The meeting covered the nutritional directions, presented by Jim Plyler, a discussion on the veterinarian view on the VFD, presented by Dr. Eric Gonder and the market approach of feed additives suppliers, covered by Dr. Haitham Yakout.
During a panel discussion, led by Dr. Simon Shane, the attendees were given the opportunity for further interaction which generated some interesting ideas based on information shared by technical industry leaders.
Both attendees and Nutriad indicated to be looking forward to repeat the symposium during Midwest Poultry in 2018 and make it a returning event to support the poultry industry in reaching even higher goals and meeting the consumer’s requirements in a better way.
