Vitamex Technical Seminar – sow nutrition and management a topic

07-09-2010 | | |

Vitamex Group has organised an International Technical Seminar to take place this month for its distributors and customers in the heart of Bruges, Belgium.

This ‘Get More Than Expected’ Masterclass will be attended by over 100 attendees from 25 countries and covers the latest insights on Vitamex’s nutritional research and product development. Topics include amongst others the latest results on Aromabiotic® MCFA in cattle, Vitadys against dysentery in pigs and Shellbiotic for better quality eggs.
Vitamex Group focuses on ‘safe & innovative’ nutrition and strives to expand continuously its nutritional knowledge on pigs, poultry and cattle. Masterclasses are organised on a regular basis for distributors and customers to share good ideas and to transfer this build-up and result-driven know-how in an optimal manner.
Next to its expertise in premixes, concentrates and feeding concepts for piglets and sows, which are built on nutritional knowledge, Vitamex is also an innovator in functional feed ingredients. Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFA) are the key alternative to antibiotic growth promoters and Vitamex is expanding its Aromabiotic MCFA product range with dedicated formulas for cattle and layers. Vitamex’s innovation focus is to have outperforming positive effects on the gut health of animals. Healthy guts guarantee less sickness and mortality, stronger animals, faster growth and a better feed conversion rate.
The program covers the mode of action of MCFA’s, provides detailed information on sow nutrition and management, gives practical insights on the use of the prestarter concepts and will give recent background information on pig and poultry genetics. The poultry program will be given in French and English and will focus on the importance of nutrition through some customer testimonials. Finally the cattle program will include a guided dairy farm visit where theory will meet application.
Participants for this Masterclass are mainly from Eastern Europe, Middle-East, Africa and Asia. Other Masterclasses are planned in 2011 for other regions.
Date of seminar: 21st – 23rd September 2010
