Advance Poultry Nutrition and Feed Milling

Continue Education on "Advance Poultry Nutrition and Feed Milling" for Veterinarians

3-7 Dec. 2018 | Chitwan, Nepal

Introduction:

Veterinarians are the key technical expertise involved in feed manufacture, feed formulation and marketing services. Approx. 50 vets are directly involved to this industry and these technical persons are the strong boon to serve.  In present scenario, approximately 160 veterinarians are graduated from Nepal each year, among which 30% of them get engaged directly in poultry sector as a field practitioner, farm manager or be involved in the feed formulation, management and post-sales service for the feed mills. In spite of good acquaintance of new veterinarians on nutrient and nutrition, they lack the practicability of their knowledge. The working efficiency of the veterinarians can be sharpened through this type of hands-on training and practical implications of their knowledge in the way that can be more functional for the growth of Nepalese poultry industry.

With immense motive to train the registered veterinarians working in feed industries, the 5-days intensive hands-on training as “Continue Education on Advance Poultry Nutrition and Feed Milling” has been planned to be organized by Nepal Veterinary Association (Province # 3) and Nepal Veterinary Council (NVC) from 3 - 7 Dec., 2018 (17-21 Mansir 2075) at Bharatpur, Chitwan. The event’s participants will be veterinarian working for commercial feed industries or working as nutritionists of key poultry industries/farms whereas the resource persons will be the renound nutritionists, scientists and feed engineers from aboard and Nepal. The training will focus to train one batch of 25-30 vets who are already engaged in the feed industries and another batch of 25-30 vets (new comers) who are willing to join the industry.
