Global consumption of animal products continues to increase sharply along with the growth of population. In livestock farming, antibiotics are usually used to enhance or promote growth or achieve better feed efficiency, thus leading to prolonged dose exposure of animal gut bacteria to these drugs and the increasing risks of building up anti-microbial resistance, a serious threat to human health. Therefore, the innovation and commercialization of animal vaccines and health-promotion feed additives as alternatives to antibiotics for livestock animals becomes an important challenge of the industry, in which the latter includes probiotics, phytogenics, fungi, micro-nutrients, and peptides etc.
In light of this scenario, TLRI and FFTC are co-organizing an online international symposium entitled “Innovation and Application of Animal Vaccines and Health-Promotion Feed Additives for Antibiotic-Free Era in Livestock Industry.” There will be 4 keynote speakers and 17 other speakers, who have been invited representing government, research institutes, and private companies from 6 countries, to exchange and share knowledge on the development and application of animal vaccines and health-promotion feed additives, aiming for global human health by ensuring food safety and reducing risk of antimicrobial resistance.
There will be 4 sessions covering various topics mainly related to animal vaccines and animal feed additives through 4 keynote presentations, 12 speakers who will deliver country reports and other technologies related to the topic, and 5 other representatives of private companies. Through this symposium, it is expected to increase and promote the awareness and application of animal vaccines and health-promotion of feed additives in Asia’s livestock industry.
We are cordially inviting all researchers, industry players, farmers and enthusiasts to register and join this video conference. We sincerely welcome your participation. For symposium information and registration, please click on the link:
