FACTA Symposium addresses production without performance-enhancing antimicrobials

The technical vision applied to the new market guidelines will be on the agenda during the Facta Symposium, which will take place within the schedule of the International Poultry and Pig Farming Exhibition (SIAVS), the largest event in the sectors in Brazil, to be held between the 9th and 11th of August, at Anhembi Parque, in São Paulo (SP).

Scheduled for the second day of SIAVS (August 10), the Facta Symposium – promoted by the Apinco Foundation for Poultry Sciences and Technologies (FACTA) – will feature the participation of technical experts from supplier companies, agribusinesses and academic institutions, in a broad debate on the various topics that involve a productive vision without the use of performance-enhancing antimicrobials.

The first part of the symposium will be moderated by the professor at the Universidade Estadual Paulista (Unesp), Ibiara Almeida Paz. Among the speakers will be Fabrício Delgado, from Nutriquest, who will address the market vision (niche or consumer demand) for this new trend. There will also be presentations by Jean de Oliveira, from Cargill, on microbiota maturation as an indicator of healthy birds to avoid the use of performance-enhancing antimicrobials; and consultant Antônio Klein, on the feed manufacturing process, logistics and traceability in foods without performance-enhancing antimicrobials.

In the second stage, with the mediation of Eva Hunka, from Facta, there will be presentations on the management of matrices and hatchery in companies without the use of performance-enhancing antimicrobials, with Mário Sérgio Assayag (Aviagen); Management of broilers, with José Luís Januário (Cobb-Vantress); and the cost-benefit of using alternative products, with Ricardo Hummes Rauber, from Ventinova.

“In the context of the debates around the concepts of One Health, production without antimicrobial growth promoters has been gaining strength in the national market, generating new opportunities for the technical-scientific development of poultry competitiveness. We brought important names with the purpose of developing a plural vision of the future around these new demands”, evaluates Ariel Antônio Mendes, president of FACTA and coordinator of scientific programming at SIAVS.
