11-12August 2015. Frankfurt, Germany. The Livestock Nutrition-2015 Conference focused on the theme “Determining New Sustainable Feeding Strategies and Nutrient Standards”.

Livestock contributes directly to the livelihoods and food security of almost a billion people and affects the diet and health of many more.

The livestock sector directly influences agricultural sector and therefore it targets a wide range of audience such as Livestock Feed manufacturing industries, RandD scientists in the field of Livestock Science, Veterinarians and Animal Health experts.

The scientific sessions focued on livestock nutrition and health, animal husbandry and modern agriculture, animal diseases, animal feed industries and the products manufactured, environmental impact of meat production and various other aspects directly concerning livestock science.
