Feed Strategy Events

Feed Strategy Events cover the ingredients and additives used within the formulation of animal feeds and are attended by senior executives from all over the world. Feed Strategy Events are geared toward the interests of nutritionists, veterinarians, feed formulators, CEOs, feed mills directors, integrators, co-operatives and hatcheries.

Feed Strategy Events provide animal feed stakeholders the tools they need to maintain productivity and profitability in a changing production landscape.

Feed Strategy Seminar Series @ EuroTier 2022 | Feed additive solutions for reducing emissions in livestock & poultry production

>> The 2022 Feed Strategy Seminar series, held at EuroTier 2022, will provide insights into feed additive solutions for emission reductions in animal production. The presentations will focus on practical, non-commercial, science-based approaches to improving livestock and poultry’s environmental impact through feeding. Three species-specific tracks will span three days. Each seminar session will feature two speakers presenting the latest research and thought-leadership in the use of animal feed additives to reduce emissions.

Admission is free.

Feed additive solutions for reducing emissions in dairy production

Dairy Presentation #1: Precision feeding and amino acid balancing for improved dairy production

Speaker: Dr Christophe Paulus, ruminant sales director – EMEA, Adisseo

Description: Precision feeding in dairy cows requires a better balance between the nutritional needs and the levels in their ration, specially balancing amino acids, which effect dairy performance. The creation of diets balanced for amino acids reduces nitrogen intake and improves nitrogen efficiency, therefore reducing urinary nitrogen emissions and the carbon footprint per liter of milk. The second benefit is the direct reduction of the carbon footprint of the ration due to a change of ingredient composition and less imported feed protein. This method also improves the longevity of the cows, as balancing amino acid levels has been shown to improve health and reproduction. Practical examples will be presented.

Dairy Presentation #2: Feeding strategies to improve resilience, efficiency and sustainability in dairy cows

Speaker: Luis Tamassia, global innovation – ruminants lead, DSM Animal Nutrition and Health

Description: 80% of the world’s population regularly consumes dairy products. Ruminants have a key role to plan in sustainable food systems by turning inedible materials into highly nutritious foods, enhancing the productivity of marginal land, and contributing to the socioeconomic development of rural communities. However, ruminants account for a portion of the greenhouse gases emitted by livestock, which across species represents on average 14.5% of total GHG emissions. To meet the nutritional needs of a growing global population while remaining within planetary boundaries, dairy farmers must leverage data and innovative technologies in order to improve the efficiency and sustainability of their operations. This presentation explores proven feeding strategies to improve dairy production in terms of healthy animals, healthy incomes for farmers and a healthy planet.

Feed additive solutions for reducing emissions in swine production

Swine Presentation #1: Economical and efficient ways to run an ecological friendly and sustainable swine business

Speaker: Bart Matton, technical marketing manager – research center, CJ Europe

Description: Sustainable pork production is a key challenge for the feed industry. Reducing nitrogen excretion plays a huge role in this endeavor. Improving nitrogen efficiency can be obtained by applying different strategies in farm management and nutrition. The presentation will highlight some key elements how the feed industry can contribute in an effective way to a more sustainable animal production. Learn how ‘less is more’ when talking about nitrogen efficiency.

Swine Presentation #2: Feeding strategies for reducing emissions, protein usage in piglet diets

Speaker: Dr. Carlos Dapoza, senior business manager – Mediterranean, EVONIK

Description: TBD

The full program will be posted in early October.
