Registration is now open for the World Poultry / All About Feed webinar on how to overcome BCO lameness without antibiotics. Bacterial Chondronecrosis and Osteomyelitis (BCO) lameness is a growing problem in modern poultry that hampers bird performance and profitability. It restricts birds’ natural movement, often reducing feed and water intake, and constitutes a significant factor in morbidity and mortality. Fortunately, recent scientific research offers insight into addressing these issues, notably through better gut performance.
On the 18th of November, CET 16.00 – 17.00 pm, two renowned experts will share these latest scientific insights on this emerging topic.
1. Distinguished guest speaker, Prof. Robert Wideman of the Department of Poultry Science at the University of Arkansas, USA, will share results of a recent study on the development of lameness in poultry.
2. Dr. Wael Abdelrahman will share knowledge on research and application of probiotics / direct fed microbials, including PoultryStar® –the multi-species probiotic for poultry which recently received EU authorization extension for feed and drinking water application. Hosted by Emmy Koeleman, editor of All About Feed, the live webinar provides you the opportunity to exchange ideas with experts in real time. Attendance is free, join our experts online on 18 November 2015, CET 16.00 -17.00 pm.
