9:30 - 12:00 Gut Physiology Development in Young Pigs – Why is Weaning Age and Digestibility So Important?
Sponsored by: HAMLET PROTEIN

HAMLET PROTEIN is hosting a Feed Your Brain seminar where experts in piglet nutrition and gut health will explore the theme of gut physiology development in young pigs – why is weaning age and digestibility so important? The program will discuss the biological reality of post weaning gut development and the implications on ingredient selection and whole diet formulation targets for optimal performance.

  • Age and Nutrient Digestibility - Potential Implications. Speaker: Gary Fitzner, Ph.D., HAMLET PROTEIN
  • Nutritional Factors and Piglet Intestinal Development. Speaker: Sheila Jacobi, Ph.D., The Ohio State University
  • Specialty Proteins in the Weaning Diet. Speaker: Casey Neill, M.S., The Pipestone System
  • Implication of Piglet Development to Diet Design. Speaker: Mark Newcomb, Ph.D., HAMLET PROTEIN

          

1:00 - 2:00 Oink. Sip. Love. The Science Behind Getting Baby Pigs to Drink from Day Two.
Sponsored by: Tonisity, Inc.

Weaning is a critical turning point that has an effect on a pig's long-term performance. What if you could get ahead of this stressful period starting at birth? Learn about a first-of-a-kind isotonic protein drink that encourages fluid intake to improve hydration in suckling pigs while delivering necessary nutrients to improve pig health. Results will be shared from on-farm trials that show this new isotonic formulation decreases pre-weaning mortality, increases weaning weights, reduces the number of fall-behinds/removals while improving gut function and digestion. Fewer mortalities plus increased weights = more profit. 

Tonisity will host two sessions with plenty of time for Q&A. All swine producers, veterinarians and industry members are welcome to attend! 

Speakers Include:

  • Bill Barr, North American Director of Sales, Tonisity, Inc., has more than 30 years of animal health and pharmaceuticals experience at companies including Med-Pharmex Animal Health, AgriLabs and Vet Pham, INC.
  • Alberto Morillo Alujas, Ph.D., DVM, Technical Consultant, Tonisity, Inc. has more than 32 years of food animal health, nutrition and production experience, including starting his own contract research organization, Test & Trials.
