Nearly 300 pig farmers attended the conferences, which were hosted by Kiotechagil China, part of Anpario and its distributor YueXing Biotechnology.
Commenting on the events, Murray Hyden, speaker at the conference and director of biosecurity for Kiotechagil, said: “These conferences provided perfect opportunities to keep local farmers in China in tune with current European farming practices and also the implications of the 2013 regulation change with regards to group housing of gestating sows.
“We also covered the trend towards outdoor pigs in the UK, the reasons behind the banning of antibiotics for prophylactic use, the benefits and pitfalls of liquid feeding and an introduction to the advantages of protected acid systems,” he added.
Other speakers included Kiotechagil China technical director Dr Wang, and the president and manager of Mei Ligao.
A new product that works as a calming effect on piglets, Clean’n Dry, was introduced to the pig farmers at the conferences. The product acts as a drying agent for piglets, with essential oils and emollient.
Additionally, Kiotechagil’s mycotoxin binder, Netox, was introduced to the attendants at the conferences, held recently at Zhao Qing and Foshan City.
