This is an introductory video to the EU funded project called ECO-FCE. Through a better understanding of the interactions between animal genetics, gut characteristics and the attributes of feed, ECO-FCE will propose strategies to improve feed use efficiency (FCE) in pigs and broiler chickens whilst also reducing their ecological footprint.
Smart ideas for sustainable poultry disease management were the focus of a special PROHEALTH workshop during VIV Europe. Featuring talks from leading poultry scientists and experts from across Europe, the workshop focused on a range of major health and welfare issues that are critical to making broiler production more sustainable as the industry comes under pressure to produce more with less.
