2nd Annual Animal Microbiome Congress
Kansas City, MO, 13/03/2019 - 14/03/2019
“In 2050 the world will require 100% more food and 70% of this must come from efficiency improvements.” - International Feed Industry Federation
Following recent bans and restrictions on the use of antibiotic growth promotors in animal feed in both the E.U. and the U.S., a huge movement to find their alternatives has begun. With evidence emerging to support the beneficial effects of microbiome manipulation through prebiotics, probiotics, and other alternative strategies, it is more important than ever to form collaborations to explore how to translate research into commercially viable products, to promote health and improve feed efficiency of livestock animals.
“International feed tonnage has exceeded 1 billion metric tons for the second consecutive year, with a total of 1.07 billion metric tons of feed produced in 2017” - The 2018 Alltech Global Feed Survey
The Animal Microbiome Congress will bring together leading experts including veterinary researchers, animal producers, food retailers, feed and strain manufacturers and animal nutrition and pharmaceutical companies, to showcase unpublished and translatable research, changing consumer priorities, and evidence-based case studies from emerging biotech companies.
