During the past 22 to 24 August, the WPSA UK Branch held the 33rd Poultry Science Symposium at Clare College, Cambridge. This year the symposium was focused on “Pre-and Probiotics: Nutritional, veterinary and production perspectives.”
From aviNews International, we interviewed Dr. Helen Masey O’Neill to talk about specific details about the symposium and the WPSA UK Branch.
>>Why is the Poultry Science Symposium series important to the WPSA-UK Branch?
The Symposium happens every 3 rd year and is an opportunity for our Branch to develop an agenda on a specific area of interest to the community. We tend to use international invited speakers to cover the topic in detail with some submitted posters.
Our branch is a charity, and to run such events for the industry, we depend on our community and our supporters.
We don’t aim to profit from Symposia, but we do use some donations to enable community value, such as student and early career attendance scholarships.
>>Can you tell us a bit about the Agenda, Pre and Probiotics, Nutritional, Veterinary and Performance perspectives?
We haven’t had a nutrition-themed Symposia for several years. There is so much work ongoing in
