“The combined role of genetics, nutrition, gut health as well as improved farm management is the first line of defence in keeping animals healthy and productive. Antibiotics should only be used when the animals are sick. This will drastically reduce the need and use of antibiotics in food production.”
“We are passionate about animal health, and we recognize the critical importance of serving animal health needs globally, with a special focus on prevention. We know that when animals are healthy, humans are healthier, too. Farmers can count on Boehringer Ingelheim to support them in raising and caring for animals in a healthy, sustainable and financially viable way, because we want to build confidence with consumers about the food they eat.”
“The excessive use of antibiotics as preventive therapy in animal production has contributed to the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Awareness of this problem is rising within the scientific community and governments, and consumers are becoming increasingly concerned about the food products that they consume: how they are produced and how safe they are. HIPRA, as the reference in prevention for Animal Health, believes that rearing animals without antibiotics is now possible.”
“Reduction of antibiotics can only be done if it hygiene and bio-security is controlled in the whole production chain. Healthy feed with the right ingredients and additives is proven to be a good replacement for antibiotic growth promoters. Introduction of harmful organisms in farms should be reduced to a minimum, not by people, equipment, rodents, insects, but also by feed. Bio-security therefore not only starts in the farm but already in the feed mill. We take care that our feed is not only free of risks but also had the possibility to reduce risks that are naturally present in farms.”
“Elanco is a global leader in animal health, based in Indiana, US. At Elanco, we strive to develop and deliver products safe for consumers, animals and the environment through innovation and a shared vision to enrich the life of people worldwide. Elanco’s poultry focus relies on 4 key pillars: Intestinal Integrity, Respiratory Integrity, Immuno-Suppression Prevention and Bio-protection and food safety. We do provide those who raise and care for animals with solutions that empower them to advance a vision of food and companionship enriching life.”
“Our mission is to provide products and services with the best guarantee of safety for people and the environment. It is crucial for safety that AGP alternatives, e.g. probiotics, should be compatible to other feed additives, and sensitive for antibiotics relevant in human medicine when used at therapeutic levels.”
“Alltech’s vision is to nourish the world’s plants, animals and people by providing practical and proven solutions to overcome agricultural challenges, including the reduction of antibiotic growth promotors (AGPs) in feed, improved feed efficiency and much more. We would like to take this opportunity to launch the Alltech Antibiotic-Free program within Indonesia, as part of our mission to support livestock producers’ reduction of AGPs while maintaining animal health, efficiency and profitability.
“Whether one believes that agricultural use of antibiotics in livestock production has fostered an environment that spawns antibiotic resistant super bugs or that excessive prescribing of antibiotics in human medicine has dealt us the same fate, our industry must take steps to mitigate the potential of a looming healthcare crisis. Nutriad supports producers around the world towards achieving a responsible use of anti-biotics. “
Microbial resistence is still an increasing problem. It is related to the use of several antibiotics in humans as well in animals but also importation from abroad by traveling of people plays a role. In 2010 politicians in The Netherlands decided that antibiotic use in animals should go down. A poultry project, advised by a team of experts on fields of reproduction, feed an drinking water, hygiene and health, climate and epidemiology was set up. Data in these fields as well as production data were collected. Bottlenecks in transparency, chicken quality, management and diseases were found. Results led to 20% less antibiotic use in 2012, 50% in 2013 and 70% in 2015. The effect of reductions in antibiotic use led to less microbial resistance in several antibiotic classes.
New developments by the poultry industry as for instance patio, hatchcare, precision lifestock farming and electronic noses might lead to a further decrease of antibiotics.
This conference is for anyone involved in ensuring that the Asian consumers are receiving the safest poultry meat of the highest quality that complies with the last rules and regulations. We will use recognised experts to give you the latest insight into this important subject. The programme follows a logical sequence on the key subjects of antibiotic resistance and biosecurity.
