VIV Asia sets stage for Biomin’s 2nd mycotoxin conference

Biomin partners with AllAboutFeed, Pig Progress and VNU Exhibitions to bring the latest information on mycotoxins to VIV Asia.

It is the second edition of the “Mycotoxins in Focus: Trends, Facts, and Effects” conference and will be held on 12 March 2015 in the afternoon. This edition builds upon the success of the inaugural edition held at VIV Europe 2014 in Utrecht, The Netherlands.

The educational presentations from Biomin experts and renowned academics from Asia will provide new insights into mycotoxin risk management, an overview of developments on mycotoxin occurrences in Asia over the last decade, and their effects on animal production.

The conference begins at 2 pm with opening remarks from Dr. Jan Vanbrabant, Managing Director of Biomin Asia Pacific. Dr. Shu Guan of Biomin Singapore will present key points from the latest mycotoxin survey, including trends in mycotoxin occurrence and the proliferation of mycotoxins in feed and feed raw materials in Asia.

Next, renowned industry experts from Asia will deliver species-specific presentations. Dr Pariwat Poolperm, from Kasetsart Univeristy, Thailand, will discuss the economic impact of mycotoxins in swine farms. Prof Dr Charles Rangga Tabbu from Universitas Gadjah Mada, Indonesia, will present on the common pathological lesions of mycotoxicosis in poultry.

The presentations will be followed by an open Q&A session. The afternoon conference will conclude with an Austrian wine tasting.
