FeedNavigator’s webinar on poultry gut health will navigate current strategies targeted at microbiota management and will evaluate next generation approaches.

The event is live on November 4 at 4pm CET (Paris). You can sign up for it here​.

We are honored to have Mike Kogut presenting as part of our webinar. He is a research microbiologist and lead scientist within the food and feed safety research unit at the USDA Southern Plains Agricultural Research Center.

Dr Kogut’s research is centered on gut health of poultry and alternatives to antibiotics to control disease and increase production.

He has been investigating, among other facets, the role of dietary metabolites in promoting immune regulation and immune responses to pathogens, novel molecular targets that mediate the actions of dietary compounds and botanicals in inflammation and immunity and how diet modulates the gut microbiome and mucosal immune responses.

What difference will postbiotics make?

Dr Kogut’s talk will evaluate the use of biotics in the manipulation of the gut microbiota, analyzing the limitations of models based on pre and probiotics or synbiotics and looking to the future in terms of what postbiotics can bring to the table.  

Also joining the panel will be Dr Ganesh Saini, head of international business at Indian feed additive supplier, Natural Remedies. Dr Saini has a veterinary background; he will address the role phytogenic feed additives can play in managing gut health in birds.

The webinar will see presentations from both speakers, followed by a brief panel discussion and then it is over to you, the audience, for a live Q&A with the presenters. So register now ​to join the event.
