Webinar to Discuss Optimising Performance through Micronutrients

04 March 2015

Novus International

US - Novus International is to sponsor a webinar to discuss optimising performance through micronutrients on 12 March.

There is no doubt that the cost of production is always an obstacle, and increases in feed ingredient costs have nutritionists closely monitoring every feedstuff put into a diet.

Micronutrients such as trace minerals are often overlooked, or discounted in value, due to their low inclusion levels. Trace minerals have been known to play a role in tissue and structural health, enzyme activity, immune function and oxidative status. However, today’s research shows that when the right source of organic trace minerals are considered, they can have a direct impact on production parameters that directly increase profitability.

On Thursday 12 March at 9:00am Central Standard Time (CST), Novus International, Inc., in collaboration with Watt Global Media, will host a webinar entitled, 'The Real Value of Trace Minerals in Driving Performance'.

This free webinar will:

  • explore undefined mineral requirements and challenges with trace mineral nutrition and how these can be overcome
  • discuss challenges in production and how they can be addressed with trace mineral nutrition
  • examine how chelated trace minerals can be used as a tool to improve animal productivity and performance, and
  • link chelated trace minerals to actual return on investment.

Featured speakers for this webinar will be Dr Merlin Lindemann, Professor of Swine Nutrition and Management at the University of Kentucky and Cassio Villela, Swine Marketing Specialist at Novus.
