ISNH 2018

Acidosis & Rumen Health Satellite



At the end of the symposium ISNH at Polydome, on Thursday September 6 from 13:30 to 18.30, a satellite conference is organized by Lallemand Animal Nutrition.

Many factors, such as environmental, or diet changes, can affect the fermentation profile of the rumen. The consequences of this unbalance can become crucial for the animal health, welfare, and performance, and thus profitability in dairy cows and beef cattle.

During this complementary satellite conference, a selection of prestigious international ruminant experts will surround multi-dimension of acidosis and rumen health.  They will discuss the risk factors linked to feeding management and the strategies to limit these factors. Taking a microbiologist approach, the conference will then demonstrate how the invisible can become visible, by looking at the rumen microbiota modes of actions and interactions, and direct and indirect consequences on animal health and behavior.

All ISNH attendees can attend for free to these conferences.
