Brian Kenyon has joined ABN as senior poultry nutritionist and will be working alongside Dr. Ade Adebiyi.

Before ABN, Kenyon had a 20-year career at Cherry Valley Ducks, where he started as assistant research manager. His last role was being responsible for the entire duck supply chain, managing all aspects of production, including breeding, hatching, growing and nutrition.

“The experience I’ve gained means I fully understand the challenges facing producers today, and the vital role that nutrition plays in helping overcome these,” says Kenyon. “I enjoy problem solving, and hope that the combination of my technical and commercial knowledge will help me deliver nutritional solutions for our customers.

“I’m really looking forward to returning to my nutrition roots. There are huge opportunities within the poultry industry at present,” he says. “There’s mounting pressure on the use of antibiotics in diets, and addressing campylobacter and salmonella remains high on the agenda, but this is something ABN is researching and will help support our customers.”
