Turning subjects that matter to animal and food production systems into topics of lively conversation with #ScienceHearted experts.
Strengthening Global Food Security
Every individual has a role to play in food security—a role that’s becoming increasingly important in our current climate. A healthy diet is out of reach for 3 billion people due to rising costs and 1 in 3 people are food insecure. Discover what role animal nutrition, food production, and food safety solution providers play in strengthening global food security from Dr. Scott Druker, general manager of Arm & Hammer Animal and Food Production, in this #ScienceHearted episode of Food Chain Chats.
Combating Salmonella in Breaded and Stuffed Raw Chicken Products.
As part of the FSIS’s broader effort to reduce Salmonella illnesses associated with poultry, the USDA recently announced they would be taking action to declare Salmonella an adulterant in breaded and stuffed raw chicken products. Discover what this important announcement means for poultry producers across the U.S. in this #ScienceHearted discussion with Dr. Steve Larsen and host Andy Vance.
Discover the power of a bacillus-based feed additive for dairy cows.
What effect does feeding a bacillus-based feed additive have on digestive health, ruminal bacterial populations, milk production, daily dry matter intake and milk production efficiency in dairy cows? Dr. Ben Saylor, dairy technical services manager, discusses the latest research, insights and upcoming research with host Andy Vance in this #ScienceHearted discussion on Food Chain Chats.
Improving Milk Yield and Revenue
From increasing productivity to increasing profits, improving milk yield is incredibly beneficial for dairy producers. Dr. Ruby Wu has the #ScienceHearted insights on what can be learned from recent research on improving milk yield, energy corrected milk and 305ME in lactating cows. Hear it all in this episode of Food Chain Chats with host Andy Vance.
Unlocking Opportunities at The ScienceHearted Center
Introducing The ScienceHearted Center—ARM & HAMMER’s research and technology hub! Dr. Xandra Smith, Director of Research and Innovation for Arm & Hammer Animal and Food Production’s state-of-the-art microbiology lab located in Waukesha, Wisconsin, joins host Andy Vance to discuss the lab’s role in identifying emerging issues, finding solutions and unlocking opportunities across the food system.
Non-Antibiotic Solutions for Health & Productivity
As FDA guidance #263 goes into effect, the animal production industry has been abuzz with discussions about antibiotic alternatives like pre and probiotics and how they can be used to maintain animal productivity. Dr. Ben Saylor and Dr. Sangita Jalukar have the #ScienceHearted insights on prebiotics, probiotics and how farmers can start incorporating them into their animals’ diets in the latest episode of Food Chain Chats.
