10 - Anne-Sophie Valable & Jean Pascard - CCPA - Heat stress in animal production: causes and management
uIn today podcast we are speaking to Anne Sophie VALABLE and Jean PASCARD, respectively product manager monogastric and ruminant feed Solutions at CCPA, a union of agricultural cooperatives, specialized in animal nutrition and health whose headquarter is in Brittany, France.
CCPA offers its customers a wide range of innovative product solutions (premixes, piglet feed, adjuvants, additives, nutritional specialities, hygiene products, etc.), services and expertise.
Both cover the topic on how to mitigate the impact of heat stress in animal production, reminding the changes in some physiological parameters that affect animal performances and bringing some tools and recommendation to smoothen the challenge.
9 - Amine Bernarbia - Norfeed - Developing alternative COCCIDIOSTATS from natural feed ingredients
Amine Benarbia is R & D Manager at Norfeed, a premier French company developing vegetal based feed additives. Amine is a Doctor of Veterinary medicine. He is an expert in developing alternative coccidiostats based on natural feed ingredients. That is the main topic of that episode.
Amine completed his PhD in 2012 from Angers' University and Postdoctoral studies from INSERM, a french public body involved in biotechnology and medical research. Amine is Leading a team of 6 teammates to make R&D for solutions to Norfeed customer’s challenges.
After introducing the present options to fight coccidiosis for the feed industry, Amine explains how some selected botanicals molecules could offer a flexible option in shuttle programs, rotation programs or in combination with vaccines. He explains the limits of using such molecules in terms of regulation and assessment of their efficiency.
8 - Wahaj Ahmed - UM Entreprise - Detection of Mycotoxins in raw materials
Dr Wahaj Ahmed, DVM from UVAS Lahore main campus, Pakistan. Wahaj is cluster sales & product manager at UM Enterprises that is a commercial importer of feed additives for poultry and dairy.
Wahaj is dedicated to cater for veterinary diagnostics which include feed, food, poultry and dairy segments. One of his main responsibilities for feed is “Mycotoxin management” that will be the topic of our discussion.
After reminding that detection of Mycotoxins started in Pakistan a few time ago, Wahaj explains what laboratory technologies he is using to detect pathogens. He stresses out the importance of early detection of Mycotoxin in raw materials.
7 - Aurélie Wilfart - INRAe - Using LCA and EA in environmental analysis
Aurelie Wilfart is a researcher at the French public research center INRAe. She is in charge of the environmental analysis of animal production systems. Aurelie’s research activities focus on improving environmental assessment methods, such as Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and Emergy Accounting (EA) in order to adapt them to the specificities of agricultural systems.
She apply these environmental analysis methods to assess the environmental impacts of agricultural systems related to animal husbandry and aquaculture systems. A part of her research activities relies on designing and developing environmental analysis tools based on LCA and EA.
Aurelie is also the main Editor of the French LCA database for animal feedstuff (Ecoalim Database) and the co-animator of the “tools for analysis of territorial flows” axis of the mixed technological network MAELE.
6 - Rui Alexander Gonçalves - Lucta - Future challenges in aquaculture
Rui Alexandre Gonçalves is currently the Global Aquaculture Business developer and innovation manager at Lucta, Spain. He gained his BSc degree in marine biology and biotechnology in 2006 and further increased his education by performing a MSc in Aquaculture and a post graduation degree in pharmaceutical sciences (University of Algarve, Portugal).
Rui obtained his PhD at the University of Stirling, studying the impact of mycotoxins in aquaculture, namely in rainbow trout. He is author/co-author of more than 70 articles in international peer-reviewed journals and magazines. In 2019, Rui led the publication of the book entitled “Mycotoxins in Aquaculture”, where he was also author of several chapters.
Aquaculture is still a young science in controlling pathogen challenge. Rui bring insights about the future challenges in the sector.
5 - Vincent Doumeizel - UN Global Compact - Seaweeds, tomorrow's solution in the feed industry but not only
Vincent Doumeizel is a Senior Advisor at the United Nations Global Compact, which support a food revolution of fossil-based solutions, notably seaweed, for many years now. He has been trying to address some of the world challenges such as hunger, plastic pollution, global warming, but also antibiotic replacements and restriction of immunity in animal protection. He also led a global seaweed coalition to enable collaboration, and neutralize a need for regulation and certifications, then compare standards of food prediction and other human safety. A very interesting interview that try to convince us that seaweed can help to address the big challenge of our generation but also of the feed industry.
