Topics and session details:

World Feed Panorama: 2017 global feed production trends
Speaker: Jackie Roembke, editor, Feed International & Feed Management magazines
For more than 25 years Feed International magazine has gathered and published its survey of global compound feed production volumes. Feed International editor Jackie Roembke will kick off the 2017 FIAAP Animal Nutrition Conference with an exclusive sneak peek at the magazine’s 2017 survey findings and a look at the factors influencing world production.

Antibiotic replacement strategies

Reducing the need for antibiotics by means of animal nutrition
Speaker: Peter Radewahn, vice chairman of the animal nutrition committee, FEFAC
Animal nutrition and feeding is an essential part of the EU strategy to fight against antimicrobial resistance (AMR). In its “Vision on Animal Nutrition,” the European Feed Manufacturers’ Federation’s (FEFAC) illustrates the commitment of European compound feed producers to combat antimicrobial resistance by addressing animal welfare, animal health, economic performance and environmental impact. The plan requires the use of dynamic nutritional models, modern diagnostic tools and a variety of feed ingredients, including functional micro-ingredients, which prove to be effective in fostering and optimizing the composition of the gut microflora and the functioning of the digestive track. FEFAC’s animal nutrition committee chairman Peter Radewahn will discuss the scientific developments and research needed to support the innovation necessary to reduce the need for antimicrobials in the livestock sector.

Regional trends shape global phytogenic feed additives usage
Speaker: Michael Noonan, global product manager – phytogenics, BIOMIN Holding GmbH
Phytogenic feed additives are shown to provide numerous beneficial biological activities, including improved animal health and growth performance — but the speed to adopt has varied from region to region. BIOMIN’s Dr. Michael Noonan will explore the prevailing uses for phytogenic feed additives and examine certain barriers to PFA use.

How phytogenics support livestock gut health
Speaker: Dr. Jan Dirk van der Klis, director of products & innovation, Delacon
Livestock gut health is the key to efficient nutrient utilization and the production of high-quality animal protein; however, it is constantly challenged by internal and external conditions, including pathogens, stress and intestinal infections. Plant-based phytogenic additives have been shown to improve intestinal integrity and immune function; reduce the virulence of potential pathogens; and stimulate nutrient digestibility via the synthesis of endogenous enzymes and bile secretion. In this presentation, Delacon’s Dr. Jan Dirk van der Klis will explore the different modes of action and look at these effects in poultry and swine feeding applications

PANEL DISCUSSION – Antibiotic growth promoters: Feed additive alternatives & replacement strategies
Panel discussion will feature Dr. Phillip Smith, senior nutritionist with Tyson Foods and three feed additive suppliers to field audience questions on how nutritionists can utilize botanicals as part of their company’s antibiotic replacement strategy.

U.S. strategies & research on antibiotic alternatives in swine diets
Speaker: Dr. Dari Brown, senior director of lifestyle & livestock technical solutions, Purina Animal Nutrition
The U.S. FDA’s Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD), which bans the use of antibiotics for growth promotion in animal feed, has created economic, welfare and animal health challenges for U.S. swine producers. Purina Animal Nutrition’s Dr. Dari Brown will explore new alternative feeding strategies and related research for reducing and eliminating antibiotic use in pig feed.

Feed ingredients

Cassava as a surrogate for corn – how high can we go in broiler diets?
Speaker: Dr. David Akinde, feed nutrition services provider, Fusion Biosystems GmbH
Though cassava does have its strengths, poor nutrient levels and the presence of cyanogens, which causes cyanide poisoning in animals when present beyond threshold limits, present a challenge for animal feed formulators. To overcome these issues, recent studies look at the use of free methionine as thiol precursor for in vivo cyanide detoxification. The research suggests no negative effect on growth, carcass yield and meat quality parameters when corn was completely replaced in the presence of increased ingestion of methionine. Could cassava completely replace corn under practical feed formulation? Dr. David Akinde will explore this possibility.

Effects of processed proteins on swine nutrition
Speaker: Lars Sangill Andersen, nutritionist, Hamlet Protein A/S
From raw soy bean to soy protein isolate, the various steps of processing affect the character of the end product. To understand the influence of the various steps in processing enables the feed formulator to better create a diet with the necessary dietary benefits for the animal in question. Digestibility of the protein is not merely a calculation factor to be used in formulation to obtain the correct level of digestible amino acids, but also a tool to reduce undigested protein and reduce gut health stress. This approach enables removal of causes for gut health issues, which in turn does not have to be treated by antibiotics or overcome by addition of other perhaps expensive solutions. Dr. Lars Sangill Andersen, a nutritionist with Hamlet Protein A/S, will discuss which approaches should be used when evaluating digestibility of raw materials for piglets.

Pre- and post-weaned piglet nutrition: a modern approach for tomorrow’s production landscape
Speaker: Dr. Mike Varley, director, The Pig Technology Company
Consultant Dr. Mike Varley will discuss the principles and practice of feeding pre- and post-weaned piglets, the elements of nutritional delivery and gut health management. Significant changes in these applications have altered feed ingredient utilized and the practice of formulation itself. The withdrawal of antibiotics, use of alternative energy ingredients and the introduction of novel protein and fiber sources offer nutritionists new opportunities and challenges. Varley will address these issues and speculate about the future of piglet diets.

Animal feed additives

Three drivers of animal nutrition innovation & the impact on your business
Speaker: Dr. Bernhard Eckel, vice president, Dr. Eckel Animal Nutrition GmbH & Co. KG
While the nature of the commodity feed additive business is very traditional and stable, the realm of specialty feed additives is characterized by the need for continuous innovation. In the near future, livestock producers will have to overcome several major challenges to meet the demand for animal products. Dr. Bernhard Eckel will examine how evolving additive categories will help nutritionists meet consumer expectations and advance modern feed formulations.

Thymol promotes the intestinal barrier function of Caco-2 cells
Speaker: Dr. Ester Grilli, professor, University of Bologna – School of Veterinary Medicine
Although anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial modes of action have been reported, new data connects thymol to a more general concept of intestinal health. A recent study conducted by the University of Bologna suggests that thymol was shown to improve the intestinal barrier function and play a role in intestinal sensory perception by reducing the expression of receptors generally upregulated during intestinal inflammatory status. Dr. Ester Grilli, a professor at the University of Bologna – School of Veterinary Medicine, will explore how this data can be used to support the “intestinal health-enhancer” mode of action of thymol-based products in animal nutrition.

Effect of in ovo supplementation of DL-methionine on the post-hatch performance
Speaker: Dr. Imdad Leghari, department of poultry husbandry, Sindh Agriculture University
Sindh Agriculture University researchers conducted a study to investigate the effect of in ovo supplementation of DL-methionine amino acid on the post-hatch growth performance and intestinal and pectoral muscle development in broilers at the end of the brooding period. Dr. Imdad Leghari will discuss the study’s findings which suggest that in ovo DL-methionine supplementation may reduce hatchability percentage, improve weight gain, promotes digestive tract development, increase pectoral muscle thickness, improves FCR and reduce mortality percentage.
