US - Novus to introduce latest innovative research on minerals and enzymes

Novus researchers will present five technical abstracts at the 2016 Poultry Science Association (PSA) annual meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana. This event acts as an incubator for academics, scientists and technical professionals to gather and present solutions in the poultry industry. The discussions, symposia and presentations held during the event will revolve around ways to improve the efficacy, sustainability and profitability of global meat and egg production.

Novus’s oral presentation schedule kicks-off on Tuesday, July 12, at 4:30 p.m. with Dr. Frances Yan, Senior Research Scientist in Poultry Nutrition at Novus, leading a discussion entitled “Evaluation of xylanase form and dose in broilers fed wheat-based diets”, as well as Dr. Megharaja Manangi, Senior Research Scientist in Poultry Nutrition at Novus, presenting a poster entitled “Efficacy of a next generation microbial phytase in laying hens fed corn-soybean meal-based diets” from 4:30-6 p.m.

Additional presentations are scheduled as follows:

  • ORAL PRESENTATION: “Evaluation of CIBENZA® DP100 protease enzyme on apparent illeal amino acid digestibility.” (Wednesday, July 13, 2:45 p.m.)
