What can you expect?

The main challenge for swine producers is to do more with less. They need to cope with higher feed costs, a responsible use of antibiotics and less zinc oxide, and at the same time, higher expectations from consumers.

Very soon a webinar will address this issue – to be held – on Wednesday May 27, at 11am Central European Time, organised by Phileo by Lesaffre in cooperation with Pig Progress and All About Feed. The webinar will present nutritional strategies with the use of yeast probiotics and their ability to modulate microbiota with a positive response on performance, animal health and immunity. Trial results will be shown demonstrating how yeast probiotics effectively work in diets with low use of zinc oxide and antibiotic replacement.

Adapting to the new challenges in young pig nutrition
Dr Megan Edwards, Independent nutritionist, Vietnam

  • Present the challenges facing the industry with focus on ATB usage and ZnO ban.
  • Focus on nutritional approaches implemented to replace ATB and ZnO –
  • Use of low protein diets
  • Use of high digestible ingredients
  • The importance of fiber and fiber nutrition for gut health.
  • Aligned to those topics, the alternatives available (Probiotics, Prebiotics, Eubiotics).
  • Focus on Yeast probiotic and functional proteins
