What is it?
Once upon a time, antibiotic growth promoters were considered a giant step forward for the pig industry. Although their benefits are still undisputed, nowadays growing numbers of scientists ask questions about the emergence of antibiotic resistant bacteria. Therefore, a host of alternatives has flooded the market in recent years, conveniently summarised as ‘natural growth promoters’.
This special issue hopes to unravel some of the mysteries of this growth market. We will take a look at the different types of products that are used and being developed. What is their proven efficacy? Which animal species do they benefit? What is their mode of action and are they effectively good alternatives to antibiotic growth promoters?
In this special we offer sponsors, experts, consultants, researchers and other independent authorities the opportunity to show their expertise on this subject. Together with recent data, research and solutions they will make this Pig Progress special an actual and useful source of information.
