EAAP 2019: Ghent takes a glimpse into the future

Latest test results let Dr. Eckel’s Anta®Phyt deliver great performance at the EAAP conference

It felt like the future was upon us at the 70th annual meeting of the European Federation of Animal Science (EAAP), which took place in Ghent this year. Under the topic ‘Animal farming for a healthy world’, about 1,500 animal scientists from across Europe discussed the most important issues facing the industry: from resource efficiency to animal welfare. More than 700 lectures and 540 posters highlighted current findings and achievements aimed at advancing animal health, nutrition, production or breeding.

At the EAAP conference, Dr. Eckel presented its latest findings regarding a research study with broilers. These clearly show that the use of the phytogenic additive Anta®Phyt can markedly improve the performance and quality of broilers, while also providing the liver with a stabilized vitamin A and vitamin C content.

Apart from the scientific programme, industry networking and numerous on-site visits to farms were on the agenda, which culminated at the conference gala dinner.
