The first International Scientific Symposium on Trace Elements in Animal Production Systems (Oteane) attracted around 200 delegates.
Frans Verstraete from the European Commission made it
clear that the Commission’s intention was to reduce maximum permitted levels of
legitimate trace elements and contaminants in animal feeds, thereby reducing
Stéphane Durosoy, president of the organising committee
and director of event sponsor, Pancosma, said: “The raison d’etre for this and
future Oteane symposia is a sustainable trace element footprint for animal
production, consistent with good animal health, welfare and performance through
appropriate use of organic trace elements.”
Proceedings from the
symposium will be published later this year. An abstracts booklet is available
now from www.pancosma.com.
A complete review article on
this symposium can be read in the next issue of Feed Mix (Volume 15.4) and Pig
Progress (Volume 23.6).
