China Stages Animal Husbandry Expo


The Seventeenth China International Animal Husbandry Expo was held September 4th - 6th in Changsha, the capital of Hunan Province in south central China.  This is the first national meeting since the advent of COVID-19.


Elimination of antibiotics from livestock feed, as proposed by the central government, represented an important topic considered at the meeting. Withdrawal of antibiotics creates opportunities for alternative feed additives including prebiotics and probiotics. Among the participating international suppliers, Hamlet Protein generated interest in early feeding of piglets and chicks to achieve optimal performance.


The CIAH Expo was held under the reality of continuing African swine fever that is yet to be controlled by an effective vaccine.
