The Seminar “Alternatives to feed Additives: Pronutrients” was held in April in Dhaka (Bangladesh)
The event sponsored by Biovet S.A. and its distributor in the Asian country, brought together the main agents of the agricultural sector
More than a hundred producers and technicians of the agricultural sector of Bangladesh attended the Seminar "Alternatives to feed additives: Pronutrients", which was held on April 16 – 19 in Dhaka (Bangladesh), sponsored by the manufacturing company of additives of natural origin Biovet S.A. and its distributor in the Asian country. Among the attendees were the main agents of the poultry industry in the country, feed producers, poultry companies and specialized consultants.
On the other hand, the list of participants of the seminar was filled up of members of universities, laboratory technicians of biotechnology research centers and a technical and commercial team of Biovet. Among the speakers, the following were highlighted: the Veterinary Doctor and spokesperson of the Technical Department of Biovet, Elvira Cano; Dr. in Biotechnology and CEO of Recombina, Cristina Latasa; the head of the Department of Poultry at the Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU), Dr Shubash Candra Da, and the Economist and Area manager of Biovet, Víctor Huguet.
As summarized by Huguet: "Due to that the use of Antibiotics Growth Promoters (APC) has been banned and that there is increasing awareness to avoid the use of chemical additives, companies like Biovet, focused on natural alternatives, always attract a lot of attention in the sector. So I can conclude that the seminar has met expectations."
The seminar started with a presentation of the company Biovet where its history, philosophy, products and services offered, based on the research lines developed by the company, were explained. Afterwards, Drs. Cano and Latasa explained the mechanism of action of pronutrients, a natural alternative for feeding in poultry, and showed the results of in vitro and in vivo tests of Alquernat Nebsui (Intestinal conditioner), Alquernat Livol (Hepatic regenerator) and Alquernat Zycox (intestinal optimizer).
In addition, during the seminar the mechanism of action of the natural preservative Alquermold Natural was also presented and the results of several in vitro and in vivo tests. Specifically, attendees showed interest in the trial conducted at the University BAU, which shows the effectiveness of the product under the adverse weather conditions of Bangladesh, due to its high humidity.
