The event was structured in three conferences that detailed important aspects to consider in poultry: avian pathology, the use of old foods and regulatory frameworks in the field of natural additives.
First, Dr. David Diez was in charge of the conference ‘Avian Pathology’. In it, he detailed the main diseases that can affect poultry farms and what mechanisms can be activated to prevent and treat them.
He was followed by the conference of Belén Folgueras, head of the animal nutrition section in the Generalitat de Catalunya. Her talk entitled ‘Use of old foods in animal feed’ dealt with the importance of reusing food for human consumption that can be used in animal feed. The use of these derivative products can help improve sustainability and reduce production costs on farms.
Finally, Roberto Minetti, from Senasa Argentina, was in charge of closing the conferences with the talk ‘Functional additives and their regulatory mechanisms’. It addressed the use of functional foods and natural additives and the current regulatory framework that is being developed to be able to legislate this novel trend.
