US – Novus is presenting evidence and scientific findings with a series of technical oral and poster presentations it has prepared for the annual Poultry Science Association (PSA) next week.

The annual Poultry Science Association (PSA), on 22 to 25 July in San Diego, California, provides the perfect setting to discuss the multiple and often contradictory challenges to profitability that producers today must overcome through scientific advancement. Novus is presenting evidence and scientific findings with a series of technical oral and poster presentations it has prepared for the event.

“From our unique position, we understand the perspective of many stakeholders and can facilitate the connections needed to solve problems and meet customer demands,” notes Marc Decoux, Executive Manager, Global Poultry Marketing at Novus. “It all comes down to working together, beginning with the end product in mind and finding the optimum places to invest in the production chain to gain the greatest return on investment. All it takes is a little conversation with solutions minded experts.”

Novus’s oral presentation schedule kicks-off on Wednesday 24 July at 10:45 a.m. with Dr. Frances Yan, Manager for Poultry Nutrition at Novus leading a discussion entitled, Comparison of DL-selenomethionine with other sources of selenium on performance, glutathione peroxidase activity and tissue selenium concentration in young broilers.
