How To Promote Good Footpad Health With Intelligent Nutrition

Structural health is important for animal well-being and to optimize performance. How can producers support leg health through intelligent nutrition?

In both swine and poultry, leg health is fundamental to allow animals to achieve their genetic potential. Intelligent nutrition, a combination of nutrition, knowledge, and resources, can help foster structural health, ultimately leading to the reduction of locomotion problems.

This webinar, featuring swine expert Roberto Barea, DVM, Ph.D., and poultry expert Mireille Huard will explore:

  • The mode of action behind nutrients like trace minerals so producers understand their options.
  • Types of locomotion issues in chickens and pigs.
  • How nutrition can help strengthen connective tissues (skin, cartilage, bones).
