The end of 2017 saw Feed Innovation Services (FIS) having a joint collaboration with Bioproton in one of the most successful workshops of the year. The workshop was attended by visitors from Egypt – feed producers, commercial farmers, abattoir owners and independent animal nutrition advisors.
The workshop addressed the latest developments in poultry nutrition and health, and feed processing. Presentations on several poultry nutrition topics were coupled by excursions to feed producers, feed analysis laboratories and animal health institutions.
Poultry nutrition and health
Several nutrition topics were covered including the present protein evaluation system for poultry, conversion of dietary apparent faecal digestibility to ingredient standardized ileal digestibility (SID), and new SID amino acid recommendations for poultry.
On poultry health, coccidiosis was the main target focusing on its causes, symptoms, risk factors, prevention measures, diagnosis, and treatment. Following the lectures, a visit to GD Animal Heath was made with the whole group.
GD Animal Health is a leading organisation in animal health and animal production.
