THAILAND - Industry experts to speak on enteric disease management

Amlan International will feature three presentations highlighting USA and Brazilian implementations and strategies for antibiotic-free poultry production at the VIV Asia conference in Bangkok, Thailand. The presentations will explore protecting livestock from enteric disease and improving production efficiency from the perspectives of a producer, a poultry processor and an in-field technical consultant of the company. Amlan is a global leader that develops innovative solutions that naturally defend animals, improve production efficiency and protect profits.

The Amlan-sponsored presentations will be held on Wednesday, 13 March, from 10am to 12:30pm in Room 213 of the Bangkok International Trade & Exposition Center. The featured speakers and topics are:

  • 10am: Dr Phillip Smith, Senior Nutritionist, Tyson Foods, Lessons Learned from Transitioning to Antibiotic-Free Poultry Production
  • 11am: Rovaldo Scariot, Sales Manager, BR Solutions, Results from the Brazilian Poultry Industry Using Varium, a Natural Performance Additive to Enhance Efficiency
  • 11:45am: Dr Maximillian Sim, South Asia Commercial and Technical Consultant, Amlan International, Anti-Virulence Strategies in Livestock Disease Management

“Poultry producers worldwide lose US $6 billion annually due to clinical and sub-clinical disease in their flocks,” says Flemming Mahs, president of Amlan International, a Nevada corporation. “We’re pleased to host these leading animal health experts for an in-depth look at best production practices, natural feed additive programs and pioneering innovation that can target virulence factors to enhance intestinal health and improve efficiency.”

Varium is one of the natural feed additives in Amlan’s portfolio of products that reduces the level of pathogenic challenges in the gut, strengthens the functions of the intestinal barrier and supports a healthy immune function. Over the last four years, the product has gained traction internationally as it has been trialed and adopted on commercial farms across Latin America and Asia.

VIV Asia is a biennial international feed-to-food trade event that covers all species and every part of the animal protein value chain. At the last conference in 2017, producers, processors and industry executives from more than 120 countries attended to discover the latest technological advancements in all aspects of animal protein production.
