The use of antimicrobials as performance enhancers for poultry and pig production is the subject of worldwide discussions will be the central theme of the International Poultry and Poultry Show (SIAVS) in Brazil.

Taking place 27-29 August at Anhembi Parque in São Paulo, the panel will focus on the ‘Production of chickens and pigs without the use of performance enhancers’.

It will address the influence of pre- and probiotics on immune reaction and health the use of organic and phytogenic acids in the production and cost-effectiveness of the production of chickens without antibiotics.

"Today there is a trend in many countries around the world to ban the use of antibiotics as performance enhancers. This SIAVS panel will be an opportunity for technicians and producers to learn about alternatives to the issues of this production model,”​ said Ariel Mendes, director of SIAVS programming.

Also participating in the panel will be the technical director of PIC-USA, José Henrique Piva, the consultant in animal pathology and animal disease control programs, Edson Bordin and the representative of the Vibra Group, Irton José Boni.
