This free virtual forum includes five world-class presentations and live Q&A sessions on poultry nutrition and health issues.

Presentations will cover gut health, leg problems, identifying and dealing with sub-clinical necrotic enteritis, and the effective use of enzymes, prebiotics, probiotics and competitive exclusion. A panel will also examine runting-stunting and malabsoprtion syndromes.

Forum line-up 
Don’t miss the following presentations by world-renowned experts:

  • Sub-clinical Necrotic Enteritis: Identification, Prevention and Treatment:  Sub-clinical necrotic enteritis, which can cost producers as much as 5 cents a pound in grow-out, may go unrecognized and untreated.
