Coming soon: special on intestinal health

The efficiency with which an animal converts food into energy is of vital importance. The gastrointestinal tract, or “gut” as it is otherwise known, is where this magic happens.
Intestinal health issues compromise animal performance and profitability, with infections being a major source of lost feed efficiency, downtime and additional costs for veterinary treatments. Certain food components and food additives can positively influence the microflora of the intestine and, in turn, improve intestinal health. These ingredients often contain immune-boosting compounds, antioxidants, and other innovative solutions.

About the special

A healthy gut means the animal can process its feed more efficiently, has a better immune system and is less susceptible to pathogenic bacteria and viruses. In this special edition, we take a closer look at feeding solutions and management practices around gut health and how they can positively impact animal health, performance and farm profitability.

Topics will include:

  • The use of new ingredients/additives to boost gut health.
  • The immunomodulatory effects of food ingredients.
  • New strategies for testing and monitoring gut health in animals.
  • And much more

Print, digital and online possibilities

The special will be included with the #9 regular print magazine issue. All articles will be published online and highlighted in specific e-newsletters.
