Nor-Feed launches 2016 Veterinary Award

The honor distinguishes a thesis based on the functional properties of plants in animal health

Nor-Feed, the French company that specializes in plant-based natural additives for animal nutrition, launches the second edition of its Veterinary Award. The honor rewards a recent veterinarian thesis (or a thesis of veterinary interest) on the functional properties of plants or plant extracts and their application in animal health and/or animal production.

Launched in 2015, the first edition had met a significant success in the scientific and veterinary community by attracting 26 high-value applications from four continents. Karthivashan Govindarajan, PhD candidate, won the award for his work on the nutritional role of Moringa oleifera extracts on broilers.

To participate, candidates must submit their dossier by June 30. The Nor-Feed prize will be awarded in September 2016. Application and information may be found at www.nor-feedsud.fr under R&D > Nor-Feed Award section.
