Feed intake & Palatability

ESPN, the occasion to exchange on Facts and think about Future

Speaker: Prof Birger SVIHUS

A big challenge in today broilers: a huge intake and a short time to digest it. Enhancing as much as possible the digestibility is clearly an objective but we have to deal with the microbiota: how to stimulate the beneficial and reduce the harmful ones.

Prof Birger Svihus, President of European Federation of WPSA, illustrates the key issues of the feed form. He also believes in the young participants of such conferences to stimulate new research.
