Nutriad showcases additive solutions for responsible antibiotics use at VIV Asia
by Aquafeed.com Staff
At the recent VIV Asia in Bangkok, Nutriad presented solutions for reduction of antibiotics usage in livestock production. This year’s VIV saw a record attendance and served as an excellent platform for sharing insights on how feed additives can help the reduction of non-therapeutic use of antibiotics. Nutriad attended industry experts from across the world at its booth and participated in several conferences and seminars during the week.
At the technical conference „Immunosuppression 2017“ which took place before the opening day of VIV Asia, Dr. Radka Borutova, Business Development Manager at NUTRIAD, presented on Mycotoxins: A gateway to infectious diseases. Consumption of some mycotoxins, at levels that do not cause overt clinical mycotoxicosis, suppresses immune functions and may decrease resistance to infectious disease. As Asia Pacific countries are still importing most of their raw feed ingredients, and since the mycotoxin situation in Europe and USA seem to be quite serious, APAC poultry, swine, ruminants and aquaculture producers are exposed to an increased mycotoxin risk in 2017”.
On the final day of VIV Asia, Dr. Tim Goossens, Business Development Manager at NUTIRAD, presented a talk on the challenges that producers of gut health promoting additives are facing.
