Nutriad presents research data on sensory imprinting of piglets

Dr. Bruno Silva presented at the Pig Feed Quality Feed Conference

Nutriad, a multinational feed additives producer, was a Gold Sponsor of the recently concluded Pig Feed Quality Feed Conference (PQFC) in HoChiMinh, Vietnam. The annual PQFC is Asia’s leading conference and scientific forum for pig and feed industry professionals. This year, the meeting drew a record number of delegates.

Dr. Bruno Silva, Professor in Swine Nutrition and Production, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Brazil, presented "Nutritional solutions to alleviate heat stress in pigs."  He went into depth about his work on evaluation of feed flavor (KRAVE - Delistart-K Link) supplementation on the performance of lactating sows and sensory imprinting on piglets post-weaning in hot and humid climates.

B.K. Chew, APAC Director, said, “Dr. Silva’s presentation of the latest research on sensory imprinting or linking sow diet to that of her litter, was well received by the delegates. The presentation was a good fit for the PQFC theme, "Translating Pig Nutrition Research into Practice."

Ab Greven, APAC Palatability Manager, added, “The conference provided an excellent platform for Nutriad to showcase the latest scientific findings of our feed flavor applications, particularly on KRAVE and Delistart K-link, which incidentally was registered this month in Vietnam. Our palatability range also includes the well-known Optisweet and Maxarome.”
