BEC Feed Solutions Breakfast Seminar on optimal nutrition solutions for swine production
BEC Feed Solutions recently hosted a breakfast seminar on 23 August 2018 at the Rydges South Bank Brisbane where attendees heard from key industry experts who discussed optimal nutrition solutions for swine production.
Agromed R&D Director, Dr Christine Potthast, kicked oﬀ the seminar with a discussion on ﬁbre as a key for gut health management. Dr Potthast spoke about the beneﬁts of adding ﬁbre to the diet of gestating/lactating sows as well as piglets. When considering traditional ﬁbre sources, it is important to note the ﬁbre properties (soluble, insoluble, fermentable). Agromed’s OptiCell® is one such second-generation lignocellulose that harnesses a synergistic combination of fermentable and non-fermentable dietary ﬁbre. Other speakers spoke on topics on antibiotic dependency and feed enzymes for pig gut health.
