- Factors contributing to poultry gut health and the role nutrition plays in achieving it.
- Challenges posed by undigested feed substrates, production stress and the microbial overgrowth they can cause.
- The challenge of reducing Antibiotic Growth Promoter (AGP) usage, how AGPs work, and how overuse can impact food safety, bird health and human health.
- How feed additives can radically improve healthy performance in both challenged and unchallenged circumstances.
