Novus to host breeder nutrition and management webinar series

The free online event for the poultry industry is scheduled for 17-20 October 

SAINT CHARLES, MO (28 September 2022) – Novus International will host a four-day global webinar series called Breeder Management & Nutrition from 17-20 October. This live digital event will feature 11 authors from the company’s latest publication titled Breeder Management and Nutrition: Moving the industry forward, which debuted at the World’s Poultry Congress 2022.

“The response to the book was really overwhelming. We had a standing-room-only crowd at WPC in Paris that solidified breeder nutrition and management information are topics the industry both wants and needs,” says Sandrine Durox, Novus poultry solutions manager for EMEA and book co-coordinator. “We want to extend the energy and knowledge sharing with people around the world. A webinar was the perfect answer.”

Each day features a different topic from the book presented by the researcher, academic, industry expert, or breeding company representative that wrote the corresponding chapter.
