Pig Solutions Seminar 2012 Global feed prices continue to soar and pig producers on all continents are feeling the strain. Many have expressed fears and some have requested government action to tackle the unsustainable cost to their business. Alltech’s Pig Solutions Seminar, “The production efficiency and food safety puzzle – where to now?” will take place on the 12th of November 2012 in the Copthorne Hotel, Hannover, Germany. Here this issue will be addressed while eminent figures in the pig industry will discuss the added cost of new food safety initiatives. “Food safety is paramount in the

agriculture industry. With continually increasing demand on global food supplies it is critical that the industry adopt scientific standards for traceability and safety,” said Jules Taylor-Pickard, Alltech’s solutions deployment team manager. “The best approaches involve prevention and adequate response and are continuous from farm to fork.”

“This heightened feed cost is

unsustainable for many pig farmers and has led to warnings from the UK’s National pig Association of a shortage of bacon and pork next year,” said Alltech vice president Patrick Charlton. “A separate meeting of pig industry leaders this year in London confirmed this, reporting that herds are being sold because supermarket prices are not rising fast enough to match rising feed costs. Something needs to be done.” A panel of renowned experts will present

their views and participate in question and answer sessions on the following topics:

Nutrition, Health and Immunity Prof . Denise Kel ly, Head of Gut Immunology Group, Rowett Research Institute, UK

Ca and P Nutrition in Pigs, where to now? Prof. Hans Stein, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, USA

New Frontiers in Programmed Nutrition Dr. Kate Jacques, Director of Nutrition, Alltech , USA

Systems of Production - How do we produce the pig of the future? Prof. Michael Brumm, Brumm Swine Consultancy, Inc., Minnesota, USA

Lifecycle Analysis – A roadmap for future pig production Nigel Penlington, Environment Programme Manager, BPEX, UK

Chairperson: Jules Taylor-Pickard, Alltech Solutions Deployment Team Manager, Alltech


FOOD SAFETY As the poultry industry faces into a period of further hikes in feed costs, feed efficiency is more important now than ever, but what does this mean for food safety? Alltech’s Poultry Solutions Seminar, “The production efficiency and food safety puzzle – where to now?” will take place on the 12th of November 2012 in the Copthorne Hotel, Hannover, Germany. Join eminent academics and industry experts for a discussion of new, smarter feeding programmes such as the use of econometrics to control costs and programming birds for greater efficiencies in later stages of life, through the use of early nutrition. “In an effort to curb losses, many diet

formulators are forced to pursue ‘lowest-cost feed’ policies. However, poultry diets must support intestinal health to allow the bird to get the most out of it,” said chairperson Dr. Peter Spring. “Producers must examine what options can best help them to balance these objectives.” “The aim of the 2012 Poultry Solutions

Seminar is to look at the different options in the industry that limit the effects of pathogens, while retaining productivity,” said Alltech vice president Patrick Charlton. “Addressing this complex challenge is essential now, as the demand for poultry products will continue to increase and feed costs look to remain unpredictable.” A panel of renowned experts will present

their views and participate in question and answer sessions on the following topics:

Early Feeding and Nutritional Programming using Phosphorus: Lining up the bird for the grower and finisher phase Prof. Roselina Angel, University of Maryland, USA

Meeting Stringent Antibiotic Reduction Targets: the Dutch model Dr. Marcel Boereboom, Royal Dutch Society for Veterinary Medicine, The Netherlands

Campylobacter Control during Primary Production: a feasible option? Prof. Frank Pasmans, Ghent University, Belgium

Econometric Feeding of Layers: optimising nutrition economics in a highly competitive market Prof. David Roland, Department of Poultry Science, Auburn University, USA

Disease Management: seed, feed, weed Dr. Steve Collett, Poultry Diagnostic Research Center, Georgia, USA

Chairperson: Prof. Peter Spring, Swiss College of Agriculture, Switzerland
