About this event
Endotoxins are widely regarded as a threat to farm profitablity. But do you also know that they can—and do—occur in the best-managed farms and are especially common in intensive farming? This is because diets rich in starch and protein which are fed to meet the energy and protein requirements for high performance most often lead to high endotoxin levels. These in turn impair animal welfare, health and performance. How is this possible? And what is the best way to counteract these effects and save business, profit and livestock from the endotoxin devastation? Find out. In our new Ecknowlogy® Webinar on
