Just like humans, livestock have certain conditions in which they thrive. When temperatures get too high (or too low), they are likely to perform suboptimally. Growth will be slowed down, feed intake will drop, animal welfare and ultimately health are compromised. In the context of global warming, it is likely that the topic of “heat stress” therefore will gain in importance in the years to come.
In a special webinar, broadcasted on Wednesday, March 24 at 3pm Central European Time, we will touch on heat stress for poultry, pigs and dairy cows. Various methods will be discussed how to be better prepared for hot circumstances. First, Prof Bruno Silva of the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Brazil, will share how to mitigate the impact of heat stress using management strategies.
His presentation will be complemented by two speakers zooming on nutritional solutions to heat stress. Wim Wanzele, on behalf of Nuscience, Belgium, is nutritionist in the market support team – his approach covers all species. Next, Dr Mohammed Mammeri will address the audience. He is global program manager at Phileo by Lesaffre and will discuss the use of yeast solutions to alleviate heat stress in dairy cows.
