SEMINAR: Low protein swine feeds: effects on performance, (gut)health and environment

The current extremely high prices of virtually all protein-rich feedstuffs raise the question; “How low can we go in crude protein without impairing performance?”. From a nutritional and environmental perspective, it is also advantageous to minimise the protein input in animal feed. Reducing the protein content can benefit the gut of young animals or animals with high disease pressure. Low crude protein feeds reduce the impact of heat stress and can help maintain performance. Governmental regulation might impose restrictions on the crude protein content of f.i. finishing feeds. How can this be achieved? What nutritional tools can be used in feed formulation? What feeding strategies can help reducing the protein levels? What are the pitfalls to be taken into account?


The detailed program will be communicated as soon as possible.


The seminar is organised at “De Reehorst” in Ede, The Netherlands, combined with a livestream. However, whether the event can take place on location depends on the COVID-19 restrictions at that time. If the restrictions do not allow on-site meetings, the seminar will be organised in an online platform.


The costs are € 498,- excl. VAT (or 3 consultancy hours).


You can register either to attend the seminar on location or the live stream.
