Gut Health
Poultry World is proud to announce that it will host 2 seminars on Gut Health, which will take place on Thursday 15th of November, live from the Eurotier tradeshow. This biggest show in Europe will highlight the latest developments in animal husbandry.

The seminars on Gut Health will be held on the 15th of November, at 10.30 and 14.00 am Central European Summer Time. This 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.

However, there is a fine balance in feeding for optimal performance and overfeeding, hence disrupting the balance. Certain feed components and feed additives can positively influence the microflora in the gut and in turn boost intestinal health. The seminars will provide you with the latest insights in knowledge of the inner workings of the gut and the effects of management- and nutritional interventions.

Gut integrity and performance, the key message from Phytogenics use
Francisco E. Dias DVM, Customer Technical Service Manager Poultry, Delacon

  • The role of phytogenics is an important option for improving gut health in modern poultry production nowadays; by better control of the inflammation, reducing pathogenicity of clostridium perfringens and alleviating severity of coccidiosis infections

Strategies to support the gut health and early development of broiler chickens
Dr. Hagen Schulze, Head of Innovation, Agilia

  • The modern broiler has achieved a dramatic growth rate and is expected to increase its body weight by nearly 4 times in the first 7 days post hatch, what does this mean for the gut health?
  • The gut is underdeveloped and enzyme production is low and on the increase. Post hatch and transport stress may exist and feed intake may be low.
  • How can we maintain maximum performance and bird health?
