"Poultry Gut Health" seminar

Our contract research facility has been active for some years now. In this period we have performed several interesting trials. We are glad to present some of the results of these trials at the annual seminar “Poultry Gut Health”. Last time we organised this seminar in cooperation with our business partners Biomin, Trouw Nutrition, HatchTech and DSM Animal Health.

*) Prof. dr. Bob Wideman began his career as a poultry physiologist at Penn State University. Twenty-one years ago he moved to the Center of Excellence for Poultry Science at the University of Arkansas, where he continues to conduct research and teach physiology. He also serves as Associate Director for the Poultry Center. Bob and his students have made major contributions to our understanding of several problems caused by organ system dysfunction, including kidney damage in laying hens and ascites syndrome in broilers. For the past 5 years Bob’s primary research focus has been on lameness associated with micro-trauma and bacterial infection in broilers. The title of his presentation is “BCO: pathogenesis, epedemiology and prevention”.
