Nutritive and non-nutritive roles of fiber in the diet. Is there any good news?
Dr. John Patience, Professor, Iowa State University, Ames, IA
 
Fiber is often viewed as a negative in pig diets, because it acts as a nutrient diluent, reduces bulk density and impairs energy and nutrient digestibility. But fiber can also play a role in gut health and impact the severity of certain diseases. The past decade has seen tremendous growth in our knowledge about fiber, but what does it all mean, and how can these advances improve the way we feed pigs? This presentation will start with the best ways to analyze fiber, and go from there.

Livestock microbiota manipulation through nutrition
Dr. Dana Stanley, Associate Professor, Central Queensland University, North Rockhampton, Australia
 
In the last decade, we learned considerable about intestinal; however, despite all the new knowledge, we are still not able to control its colonization and maturation. This presentation will focus on ways to manipulate the development of intestinal microbiota of agricultural animals for better pathogen control and improved performance, control of antimicrobial resistance and alternatives to antibiotics.
