What is the animal miocrobiome and how will it affect agriculture in North Carolina? That’s the question that will be addressed at the ag Biotech professional for March 23 at the North Carolina biotech center. Speakers for the event have just been announced.

As we are learning more and more about how the microbes that live in us in on us impact human health, the same is true for animal agriculture. Animal health and nutrition are intrinsically tied to the microbes living in and around each animal.

This event features speakers from local universities sharing their academic research into the animal microbiome as well as from companies who have commercial technologies based on the animal micro bio community the stocks will include applications relating to the poultry and aquaculture.

Speakers include:

Matt Koci, associate professor, poultry science, North Carolina State University.

David Drahos, senior research scientist, Novozymes.

Paula Barngrover, marketing and sales director, Premex Inc.
