Milwaukee, Wisconsin – The first international seminar on "Probiotics in Animal Nutrition" will take place September 4-6, 2005 in Rome, Italy. The seminar is a part of the 3rd Probiotics, Prebiotics and New Foods Congress. As a member of the European Probiotic Association (EPA), Chr. Hansen is co-organizer of the seminar, which is a forum where the latest advances and updates in the field of microbials will be presented and shared.
Direct fed microbials are the solution
"The purpose of the seminar in Rome is to promote the direct fed microbial concept, and increase awareness and use in animal nutrition among producers and nutritionists," says Steve Johnson, Director of Marketing for Chr. Hansen Animal Health & Nutrition in North America. "The EU-registration of feed microbials is proof that these products can be a reliable solution to improving animal production."
The use of antibiotic growth promoters in animal feed will be banned in the European Union in 2006. Mr. Johnson further explains that it is important that the animal production industry is educated about direct fed microbials and can make an informed choice based on credible information.
"As the leading producer of microbials, it is natural that we support the seminar and that our company is present there as well," he concludes.
The 3rd Probiotics, Prebiotics and New Foods Congress takes place at Università Urbaniana, Terminal Gianicolo, Via Urbano VIII, 00165 Rome, on September 4-6, 2005. More info can be found at http://www.ideacpa.com/popup/5_3prob/index.html.
