In this interview, Matthew Bekker, Novus International Oceania - Technical Services Manager, describes the role that essential trace minerals play in the development and performance of modern birds, some factors that affect epigenetics, and how bioavailability of minerals support breeder hens.
Novus International recently organized four webinars under the Young Animal Nutrition Series. The objective of these webinars was to share the importance of focusing on early animal production stages and the nutritional practices suitable for young animals. The key industry opinion leaders who were speakers during the webinars included Dr. Francesc Molist from Schothorst Feed Research, Dr. Rommel Sulabo from the University of the Philippines Los Banos, Dr. Megan Edwards from Integral Nutrition, Rick Kleyn from Spesfeed Consulting and Peter Chrystal from Poultry Research Foundation.
The Nutra Blend Animal Agriculture podcast episode "Chicken or the Egg, Which Came First?" with Melanie Roux, Sr. Technical Services Manager for Novus, is now available on Spotify, iHeart Radio, Google Podcasts or Apple Podcasts. Melanie talked with John Ratzenberger about maximizing the potential of broiler breeder flocks through flock management.
In the United States, the largest poultry-producing country globally, broiler production decisions are based on the smallest of margins, often as little as a fraction of a penny per pound. With such thin margins separating producers, bird performance is a key indicator of success.
Teera Tiyasatkulkovit, Technical Services Manager, Novus Southeast Asia and Pacific shares in his technical article published on Asian Poultry September issue 2021 that feed supplementation with Essential Oil containing a combination of thymol and carvacrol enhanced digestive enzyme activities, and improved immune response of broilers.
