Pronutrients, protagonists of two sessions at the XXXI Biovet International Symposium in Tarragona
Producers and distributors of the poultry and swine sector participated in the event
Pronutrients were the protagonists of the second and third session of the XXXI Biovet International Symposium, which was held from May 26 to 29 in Tarragona, with the assistance of producers and distributors of the poultry and pork sector, from all over the world: China, Mexico, Azerbaijan, Ukraine, Romania, the United States, Peru, Guatemala, Ireland, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Bangladesh and Argentina. Specifically, the conferences were held at the Chamber of Commerce of Tarragona.
During the two sessions focused on pronutrients (micro-ingredients of botanical origin), which were held on May 28th, professors from universities and experts from several countries explained their function to improve the physiognomy of animals, through of in-vivo and in-vitro trials. These sessions dedicated to pronutrients were moderated by Dr. Eduardo Torres.
So, the head of the Biovet technical team, Dr. Julia Pié, gave a lecture on the effects of the Alquernat Nebsui product for layers. "Alquernat Nebsui contains pronutrients that act within the digestive tract, with intestinal conditioning function, so, thanks to the stimulation of regeneration and physiology, they optimize the regeneration and physiology of the digestive mucosa, inhibit the proliferation of pathogens and improve the absorption of nutrients. Therefore, this product replaces the Antibiotic Growth Promoters (AGPs)", highlighted Dr. Ms. Pié.
Dr. William Ruiz, from INPSAS-Colombia, showed the results of numerous trials carried out with the products Alquermold Natural (natural preservative) and Alquernat Nebsui (pronutrients) to replace AGPs in broiler chickens.
During the third session, Dr. Cristina Latasa, from Recombina, presented the results of a bioassay with Alquernat Immuplus. On the other hand, Dr. Maria Peñas, from Recombina, highlighted the mechanisms of the action of the Alquernat Magacal. Recombina is an expert company in the design and development of bioassays, which provide information in the process of functional characterization of new molecules and formulations.
Next, the rector of the Scientific University of the South (UCSUR, by its initials in Spanish), Dr. Manuel Rosemberg, emphasized the prevention of necrotic enteritis, with the application of Alquermold Natural: "It is a preservative, bactericide and fungicide for raw materials and compound feed, within which the action of an active principle of natural origin, cimenol ring, is combined with citric acid. Its incorporation into drinking water allows the control of the main pathogenic colonizing microorganisms of the intestine, such as Salmonella, E. coli, Clostridium, Staphylococcus, fungi and yeast”.
The last presentation of the day was given by Dr. Alfonso Díaz, from INPSAS-Colombia, who described field trials of the use of pronutrients in birds and pigs in Colombia. This dissertation generated far more interest among those attending when it comes to in-vivo research, which highlighted the results in improving the physiognomy of the animals and, therefore, in improving the productive parametres of the farms.
Once again, this international forum, created to optimize the quality of animal feed for human consumption, concluded with successful participation. Every year, Biovet S.A. organizes at least two international events in the countries where it sells its products. During these events, specializing in development, Biovet S.A. exposes the innovations made in its Research and Development Department, in products related to animal nutrition.
