Kiotechagil updates Chinese farmers EU feed regulations

Kiotechagil China, part of Anpario plc and their distributor YueXing Biotechnology, recently hosted two conferences in Guangdong province where the latest EU feed and welfare regulations were discussed.

Nearly 300 local pig farmers attended and were addressed by Murray Hyden the director of biosecurity for Kiotechagil, Dr Wang, the technical director for Kiotechagil China as well as the president and manager of Mei Ligao.

Murray Hyden commented, “These conferences provided perfect opportunities to keep local farmers in China in tune with current European farming practices and also the implications of the 2013 regulation change with regards group housing of gestating sows.  We also covered the trend towards outdoor pigs in the UK, the reasons behind the banning of antibiotics for prophylactic use, the benefits and pitfalls of liquid feeding and an introduction to the advantages of protected acid systems.”

Kiotechagil’s mycotoxin binder – Neutox was also introduced.  Mr Hyden explained to the farmers the reasons behind using a combination product to tackle mycotoxins from both field and storage moulds and presented comparative studies using simulated gut modelling.
