November 01, 2023

Necrotic enteritis, caused by Clostridium perfringens, can lead to poor gut health and decreased broiler performance. With the poultry industry moving away from the use of growth-promoting antibiotics, new strategies need to be developed to address this disease.

On November 1st at 10:00 am MST, the Poultry Innovation Partnership (PIP) is hosting a webinar with Dr. Greg Page, technical service manager – Canada with Huvepharma, as part of its Innovation Showcase series.

Page will discuss some nutritional and management-related approaches to reduce the risks of necrotic enteritis. He will also explore the benefits of vaccination as an innovative tool in the fight against that disease.

PIP’s Innovation Showcase is a monthly webinar series featuring poultry researchers and their newest work. Held monthly on the first Wednesday of the month at 10:00 am MT, the series is hosted by PIP knowledge mobilization officer Brenda Reimer and PIP lead Valerie Carney.
