Summary

FFTC-TLRI Symposium on Innovation and Application of Animal Vaccines and Health-Promotion Feed Additives for Antibiotic-Free Era in Livestock Industry

Date:

11-12 November, 2021

Organiser:

Taiwan Livestock Research Institute, Council of Agriculture (COA), Taiwan

Food and Fertilizer Technology Center for the Asian and Pacific Region (FFTC / ASPAC)

Rationale:

Global consumption of animal products continues to increase sharply along with the growth of population. In the livestock framing, antibiotics are usually used for growth promotion or better feed efficiency, thus leading to the prolonged dose exposure of animal gut bacteria to these drugs. However, the treatment of antibiotics to animals is approved by FDA1 only for: (1) diseased animals, (2) disease control, and (3) disease prevention. The antibiotic-resistant bacteria could potentially infect people via routes such as raw/undercooked meat, vegetables/fruits contaminated by livestock wasted waters, or personal contacts without suitable hygiene. Meanwhile due to the increasing consumers’ concern on food quality and safety, the trend of an antibiotics-free feeding model of livestock is requested. The innovation of animal vaccines and health- promotion feed additives for livestock animals becomes an important challenge of the industry. Health-promotion feed additives include probiotics, phytogenics, fungi, micro- nutrients, and peptides etc. The two-day symposium held in Taiwan will invite local and foreign scientists and experts to share their research achievements regarding animal vaccines and the health-promotion feed additives. It is expected that through this seminar, the utilization of animal vaccines and health-promotion feed additives in livestock industry will be elevated so as to up-grade the industry for a healthier level. Also, the technology exchanges could stimulate the vigorous development of animal vaccine and health-promotion feed additive industries in the Asia-Pacific region. The export competitiveness of Taiwan’s animal vaccine and feed additive industries could be promoted.
