A special feature of VIV Asia 2013, being held March 13–15, in Bangkok, Thailand, is the VIV Animal Health Summit on March 14 that will focus on reducing the use of antibiotics in livestock production. 

Antibiotics are still widely used in food animal production in many parts of the world. Their use includes the prevention of bacterial infections and because of low costs and availability of some without prescription, antibiotics can be an often used medication. The widespread occurrence of multi-resistant bacteria is becoming a threat for future human and animal health. One consequence of this is that humans get scared and question whether it is safe to eat meat and eggs.

  • Nutristar – health and nutrition
  • Key points to secure demedication approach – From challenge model to feed formulation
  • Antibiotic-free production – 15 years of lessons learned
  • Brooding for robustness with Patio
  • Reducing the amount of antibiotics at poultry by controlling the quality of drinking water
  • Phytogenic feed additives – A holistic approach to reduce antibiotics in feed
  • Natural concept – biology serving life
  • Framelco's BioMolecular approach towards replacing antibiotics
  • Antibiotic reduction & decreased 1st week mortality by improved brooding
  • The use of organic acids in animal nutrition as replacements for antibiotics under European and Asian conditions
  • Alternatives to antibiotic growth promoters 
  • New applied nutritional technology for prevention of necrotic enteritis in broilers
