Novus International at the 2013 World Veterinary Poultry Association Congress

Scientific Research Will Underscore the Importance of Gut Health as the Foundation for Performance and Quality Results

St. Louis – August 14, 2013 – It has been nearly 50 years since the last World Veterinary Poultry Association (WVPA) Congress was held in France. Novus International, along with specialists representing all areas of poultry production from around the world will be participating from August 19th through 23rd in the 18th WVPA Congress in Nantes.

“Gut health is instrumental for improved performance and higher quality results no matter which step of the production process you’re talking about,” notes Marc Decoux, Executive Manager, Global Poultry Marketing for Novus. “Novus specialists look at flock health through the lens of nutrition planning and ingredient management. The best offense is a good defense and Novus can provide solutions that target all the issues that will ultimately improve poultry health and productivity.”
