Pathogen Control, Milling Efficiency under Expert Scrutiny at IPPE14 January 2015
US - Pathogen control and milling efficiency will take centre stage at IPPE, according to Anitox, as poultry producers respond to demands to further protect consumers against foodborne illnesses without compromising productivity.
Dr Steve Collett of the University of Georgia will address the prestigious Anitox IPPE Breakfast Seminar to consider feedborne pathogens and their impact on gut health and animal performance.
“There’s an increasing appetite for fact-based information on feed borne pathogenic contaminants that are potentially harmful to both food producing animals and humans,” explained Roger Mann, COO at pathogen control specialist, Anitox.
“Producers are working to ensure they have critical control points in place and Dr Collett’s insights will prove invaluable.”
Walmart clarified its position in mid-December last year, demanding that suppliers achieve prevention-based certification against one of the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) internationally recognised standards.
“Feed is a very achievable critical control point,” confirmed Mr Mann. “Treating rations with Termin-8, for example, offers residual protection against the risk of pathogens entering the food chain through feed, putting in place a critical control point and enabling producers to concentrate efforts on other possible sources of contamination.”
Anitox will have its full technical and feed milling technology teams on hand at IPPE.
“Pathogen control is critically important to our customers,” added Mr Mann, “as is milling efficiency and pellet quality. For that reason, we’ve invited Dr Keith Behnke of Kansas State University to take the stand at the Anitox Breakfast Seminar too. He’ll consider options for improving profitability and performance through feed milling optimisation.”
