Turning subjects that matter to animal and food production systems into topics of lively conversation with #ScienceHearted experts.
Fighting Mycotoxins at the Cellular Level with Dr. Sangita Jalukar
How widespread is the threat of mycotoxins in animal feed? Is feed testing consistently effective in addressing this ongoing challenge? What other approaches have proven even more successful? Using recent groundbreaking research on cytotoxicity, Dr. Sangita Jalukar discusses the new Prevent-Protect-Resilience (PPR) approach that helps animals battle multiple mycotoxin challenges from the inside out. If you’re interested in defeating mycotoxins you won’t want to miss this #ScienceHearted discussion with host Andy Vance.
Antimicrobial Economics with Dr. Glynn Tonsor
How much are you “saving” with one antimicrobial over another? What are other costs to consider, including equipment and supply chain challenges? Drawing on firsthand research and his experience as professor in the Department of Agricultural Economics at Kansas State University, Dr. Glynn Tonsor discusses a recent report, published by him and his team, on the true cost of equipment ownership when using PAA antimicrobials compared to DBDMH technology in food production.

Food Safety in Focus with Dr. Jack McReynolds and Dr. Christine Alvarado
How does biomapping help address FSIS standards and reduce pathogen loads at meat processing facilities? Why is understanding the science behind any food safety approach important when planning a multi-hurdle, multi-technology strategy? What are the best applications and synergies for some of the most common antimicrobials? Tapping their extensive hands-on expertise as part of the Arm & Hammer Animal and Food Production team, Dr. Jack McReynolds, Director of Research and Development, and Dr. Christine Alvarado, Technical Services Director, discuss some of the most pressing food safety topics.

Inside the Rumen with Dr. Tom Rehberger
Why is the rumen so important to dairy cattle production and reproduction? What are some practical ways to keep it functioning at a high level? What is feed hygiene and how can it lead to better results on a dairy farm? Tapping his years of experience developing customized microbial products, Dr. Tom Rehberger, Director of Innovation and Product Development at Arm & Hammer Animal and Food Production, discusses optimal rumen function and the role that products like CERTILLUS™ can have on ultimate success.

Building Resilience in Beef Cattle with Dr. Elliot Block
What are some of the latest, research-proven strategies for helping beef cattle deal with transportation stress and other challenges? How can building resilience in cattle reduce the chance of Bovine Respiratory Disease (BRD)? Why does the G.I. tract play such an important role in immune function? In this practical, wide-ranging conversation, Dr. Elliot Block, Research Fellow and Director of Technology at Arm & Hammer Animal and Food Production, talks about the role diet can play in helping beef cattle when they need it most.
