BAVI was represented by Myla Rose B. Ocleaza, BAVI Animal Nutritionist for Mindanao Operations.
Studies on enzymes and its real-world application were also discussed during the summit. Also highlighted in the event are latest advances in diet formulation to combat the anti-nutritional effect of phytate.
According to Ocleaza, these new developments in animal nutrition have a significant impact on feed formulation. “Understanding phytate destruction is significant to achieve better nutrient utilization resulting to optimum animal performance and reduction in the excretion of phosphorus in the environment,” she said.
To keep its employees up-to-date in their respective fields, BAVI regularly sends them in trainings and workshops that contribute in their personal and professional development.
