Whilst antibiotic misuse continues to present itself as a problem in livestock production, domestic animals are suffering from increased chronic gut health issues. This has caused an influx of microbiome-targeted feed additives and therapeutics being accelerated to market to improve animal health, nutrition, performance and productivity. However, significant challenges remain in demonstrating the commercial value of these products, particularly when benchmarked against more traditional solutions. Returning for a second year, this is your chance to explore best practice in product development, covering: Causality of a healthy animal gut microbiome Antibiotic stewardship and microbial alternatives -omics approaches and data analytics IP and regulatory strategy Nutritional and therapeutic products in R and D How to design study programs that demonstrate product efficacy and more! You’ll learn how to streamline your product development process and deliver the needs of your customers, be they nutritional and therapeutic product developers, pet parents or livestock farmers.
