FEDNA will hold its annual congress on animal nutrition

FEDNA will bring the animal nutrition community together in Madrid.

The Spanish Foundation for the Development of Animal Nutrition will hold its annual congress on December 12, 13, and 14 at the Fundación Pablo VI Auditorium (Juan XXIII Street, 3. Ciudad Universitaria, 28040-Madrid).

This congress, as the Foundation explains, “…gathers a significant number of participants from the animal feed sector, encompassing both national and international representatives (400-500 attendees in recent editions).” The program features “approximately 14 presentations and roundtable discussions, overseen or moderated by prominent figures in the feed manufacturing industry and researchers in animal nutrition.”

The event will kick off with a focus on ruminant nutrition on December 12 with a session held in conjunction with ANEMBE. On December 13, the agenda will highlight discussions on pig nutrition, and on December 14, attention will be directed toward the poultry industry, complemented by presentations on raw materials and feed formulations.
