Mr. Matthew Clark, Director, FeedGuys Resources Pte Ltd. presented two technical papers titled “Economics and ROI of DDGS in Poultry Diets” and“Implications of changing Raw Material Quality – Nutritional inflammation influences” at the seminar.

Mr. Matthew Clark Said, DDGS is a good ingredient to demonstrate formulation technique. It’s a byproduct and can vary as it is not the primary process. New types of DDGS with additional fermentation emerging. But Important to know the type on offer from different suppliers. Frequent NIR analysis and data entry into formulation is also important here. ‘Need awareness of mycotoxin presence of risk’- he added.

Mr. Clark said, Feed cost reduction is a more effective commercial argument. He suggests to avoid the trap of paying less for an ingredient. Feed stability can be lost quickly from surges in gut challenges and inflammation. Farmers buy stability. We need farmers stability to collect on feed sales.

Dr. Christos Gougoulias, Head of Innovation, Innovad® was discussed titled “Anti-inflammatory Biomarkers of the Intestinal Track of Poultry – Tract of Poultry” in the program.

Dr. Christos said, any type of inflammation reduces animal performance. Discussing one of Innovad®’s unique products (Lumance®) in the country’s market, he said it enhances gut integrity, controls pathogens, improves flock uniformity, helps in increasing chicken performance and immune system.

Planet Pharma Director Mr. Shah Fahad Habib said, Innovad® created trust among their customers and in Bangladesh context Innovad’s products are already very popular. They have already created trust among our customer by supplying better quality products with consistent results that’s why they have been using Innovad’s product 3-4 years continuously.

“Another point I want to share with you, few of our customers have already done trial 2-3times consecutively and after receiving better results they started using Innovad’s products. So, it is a matter pride to become a partner of Innovad® in Bangladesh. Since the inception of our business relation, the cooperation from Mr. Ben Letor, CEO & team Innovad® have been very promising. I would really like to thank Mr. Bob for organising today’s seminar and created an opportunity for us to meet our customer and well-wishers at the beginning of this year” -added Mr. Fahad.

Mr. Shah Habibul Haque, Managing Director of Planet Pharma Limited delivered the closing speech in the seminar.

Every small and big farmer, feed millers, hatchery’s and all those related to the sector are suffering from losses. As the price of every essential raw material skyrocketed, it became difficult to sustain the business. To get rid of this situation all of us including the policy makers have to take the right decision at the right time.
