New media platforms have intensified communication and information sharing over the Internet. Capitalizing on this modern mode of interaction, BIOMIN will be making its first online presentation at the WATT Online Feed Forum, scheduled for June 24, 2010.

By increasing its sponsorship from last year’s Silver to Gold, BIOMIN will fully support the dissemination of information and educational material for the industry through new means. Opening the forum at 0330-0430 hours (GMT -0500) with his presentation and with a second at 1100-1200 hours, BIOMIN’s Research Director, Gerd Schatzmayr, will present strategies for effective mycotoxin risk management in a presentation titled “Present and Future choices for controlling Mycotoxins in Feed.”

Dr. Schatzmayr oversees BIOMIN’s global R&D activities, and has over 10 years of experience with the R&D team in the area of mycotoxin control and deactivation. He has co-authored over 100 publications and papers and lectured at over 40 scientific forums worldwide.

Hosted from 0300-1800 hours Central Daylight Time (GMT -0500), the WATT Online Feed Forum offers virtual networking possibilities and the chance to gather educational information on the latest in feed and nutrition. As Gold Sponsor, BIOMIN will be present at the forum with a virtual booth. Participants can engage in individual or group chats with BIOMIN staff here or at the Virtual Networking Lounge, in a language of their choice.


Attendance is fully flexible and participants may log in at any time for real-time discussions with other attendees and BIOMIN experts through emails and chats, and exchange electronic business cards.

With its strength in R&D and science-based solutions, BIOMIN carries one of the industry’s foremost brands for acidifiers, probiotics and phytogenic feed additives. Information on these BIOMIN products and services would be made freely available at the virtual event. Participants may access BIOMIN presentation material, webinars and content from the Resource Center, and download these into their electronic briefcases.

The WATT Online Feed Forum 2010 is entirely free-of-charge for all participants. Registrations can be made online.
