GLOBAL - Novus International will present a landmark keynote presentation at the seventh biennial World Agricultural Forum's Congress in Brussels this week.

Novus International, a leading innovator of animal health and nutrition programmes, will present a landmark keynote presentation at the seventh biennial World Agricultural Forum’s Congress where the future of agriculture, broader application of existing technologies and innovations will be discussed by industry, government and civil society.

Company President and CEO, Thad Simons, will address how the intersection of animal health and nutrition will be a key driver to sustainably meeting future food production demands.

“Future growth in production eficiencies will be achieved through a focus on animal health that delivers improved performance and addresses multiple dimensions of sustainability,” states Mr Simons.

“That includes identifying best management practices through a combination of genetics and nutrition.”

The Congress is the leading platform to develop coalition support for priority solutions to global challenges linked to integrative role of agriculture -- the economy growth, energy cost and availability, climate change, jobs and hunger.

“As a global leader, we are positioning ourselves to provide sustainable solutions to meet the world’s food demands,” says Mr Simons.

“We work with our customers, both large and small; to optimise production eficiencies which means that population pressures on land, water and air quality are reduced.”
