Mixing processes, mixing equipment and typical nutrition-feed technology interaction were key topics at a successful seminar held at the Dusit Princess Hotel, Bangkok recently.
Forberg International together with its representative in Thailand, KM.18, hosted the event. Guest lecturer was Professor Birger Svihus, Professor of Nutrition at Norwegian University of Environmental and Life Sciences. Various scientific topics and valuable analyses were presented.
Professor Svihus lectured on the extent of grinding raw materials in relation with optimal pelleting process and consequently with nutrient digestibility and poultry health.
He has identified the crucial role of structural materials in the diet on proper development of digestive tract and maximised digestibility of diets for broilers and layers.
