Hamlet Protein relaunches its Feed Your Brain seminars

Two sessions were held in Germany

Hamlet Protein, global expert in solutions for young animal nutrition, relaunched its well-known Feed Your Brain seminars in Germany. Two sessions were held, focusing on nutrition and health challenges in swine and ruminants (piglets and calves) and poultry (chicks). The Feed Your Brain seminars are a unique platform that facilitates information exchange between Hamlet Protein nutritionists, industry experts and local producers.

The Covid-19 pandemic saw many events canceled or postponed. Even though Hamlet Protein organized several online seminars, customers showed a clear preference for getting back to face-to-face meetings again. The line up for both events included international experts in animal rearing, nutrition and markets.

“We are very happy to be able to meet with our customers again and exchange ideas on the latest developments in the German market as well as global markets. Hamlet Protein has made significant investments in product development and scientific research in the past year. The Feed Your Brain seminars are an excellent platform to share our latest insights with customers and industry partners,” said Hamlet Protein EMEA director Jan Kamphof.

The Feed Your Brain seminar on poultry nutrition was moderated by Robert Pottgüter, nutritionist with Lohman Breeders. Prof. Elizabeth Satin presented an inside view of gut health to improve sustainability in poultry production; Dr. Maarten de Gussem spoke about Supporting coccidiosis vaccine side effects through nutrition in broiler chickens; Wu Meng discussed Outlook of China’s Feed Industry and finally Dr. Alfred Blanch, Category Manager Poultry with Hamlet Protein, shared Recent Findings on the Impact of dietary anti-nutritional factors in chickens.

The Feed Your Brain seminar on swine and ruminant nutrition was moderated by Dr. Heinrich Roling (Herocon Unternehmensberatung). Robert Marani presented on Trace Minerals Latest Generation; Wu Meng spoke about the Development of China’s Pork Industry; Eva-Maria Saliu PhD Berlin University addressed Piglet Gut Health and Albert Hortmann Scholten (Landwitschaftskammer Niedersachsen) discussed Economic Aspects of Calf Feeding Strategies in relation to Volatitliy in Feed Ingredients Market.

“Research shows that the inclusion of high-quality ingredients in starter and pre-starter feeds results in improved gut health, better digestion and absorption of feed components and a stronger immune system. That in turn leads to better economics for producers. The attendees of our Feed Your Brain seminars show a lot of interest to learn more about that,” concluded Kamphof.
