Novus Works, Plays Hard at PSA Meeting

US - The Poultry Science Association (PSA) annual meeting was an opportunity to work hard and play hard, according to Novus International.

Two oral presentations were given by Dr Frances Yan on 24 July:

  • Comparison of DL-methionine with other sources of selenium on performance, glutathione peroxidase activity and tissue selenium concentration in young broilers. To find out more about this presentation, visit
  • Evaluation of an essential oil blend in young broilers fed rye wheat based diet. To read the entire abstract, visit

On 25 July, Novus hosted a party at the San Diego House of Blues. There were more than 330 attendees who enjoyed great company, food and music!

The night began with a special reception for PSA Foundation donors, and a touching video in memory of former PSA President, longtime Novus employee, and friend to all of poultry science, Dr. Andrew Giesen III [click here to view video].
