WEBINAR: Biosecurity best practices for improving feed safety, pig health
June 18, 2020
Watch on-demand now to learn effective intervention strategies and hygiene management best practices.
Proper biosecurity protocols are as important in the feed mill as they are on the farm — as even the highest-quality feed can become a fomite for swine disease. This webinar will provide pig producers, nutritionists, and feed manufacturers with risk evaluation methodology and the evidence base for effective intervention. Hear experts Sofia Rengman, Perstorp Animal Nutrition, and Kurt Richardson, Anitox, provide an examination of published research for assessing the risk contaminated feed and feed ingredients can pose to the spread of porcine viruses. Gut health and feed hygiene are also key to a well-rounded strategy for reducing the use of antibiotics without impacting performance or animal health.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
- Explore effective intervention strategies and hygiene management best practices.
- Identify pathogen reduction techniques for safe feed production.
- Review the findings of leading-edge researchers in swine health.
- Examine how feed additives support pig gut health and productivity.
This is the third installment in a three-part webinar series, “Feed additive solutions for pig disease treatment, prevention,” focused on feed additive solutions for mitigating swine diseases.
This webinar is presented by Feed Strategy and WATT Global Media.
