Faculty of Animal Science and Veterinary Medicine belonged to Nong Lam University in Ho Chi Minh City, does not only supply training mission for BS of animal science, Doctor of veterinary medicine, master and Ph.D. program in the field of animal science or veterinary medicine, but has also conducted the research work, transfer of science technology to related producers throughout the country.

Making of this direction and going together with ILDEX Vietnam for years, in this seminar, the teaching staff of the Faculty look forward to referring to the most issues from livestock production through the reports concerning the feed quality in general or in advanced topics such as the risk of mycotoxin and also those very practical issues related to real production in Vietnam as reporting on “evaluation of metabolisable energy of common feed ingredients for broiler duck” or a report about breeding selection could be needed to concern.

In another hand, some reports in this seminar will mention on very current issues about veterinary practice in Vietnam as the occurring of Balantidium coli, spreading fungal infection in poultry production as well as issues related to usage of antibiotics in livestock which had been interested in throughout the world as well as in Vietnam.

Two conferences present specialists in milling, genetics and aqua

ILDEX Vietnam 2016 offers visitors an opportunity to hear and learn in detail the background to some exciting new technologies during the three-day exhibition.

Two half-day conferences will be held on March 25, 2016, one on Milling and Genetics and the other on Aquaculture. The Milling and genetic conference will present presentations which will look at the global feed industry and its role in meeting the needs of a modern industry followed by two presentations on pig genetic developments and pig farm management.

Mr. Roger Gilbert, with a background in global feed industry, and after serving 22 years as the secretary general of the International Feed Industry Federation and as publisher of the oldest milling magazine still in print – Milling and Grain – will present his views on livestock feeding and what the future holds for feed manufacturers in a world where feed is still not considered central to safe and affordable food production.

He will be followed by Mr. Chris Jackson the export manager for the British Pig Association who will trace the genetic development of the major breeds and how genetic improvement has assisted farmers in reducing their costs of production while improving meat quality. Mr. Jackson is the winner of the VIV Asia ‘Pig Personality of the Year Award 2014’ and is widely respected expert on pig genetics throughout Asia.

Mr. Roger Parfitt is the technical solutions chief for Famsun’s animal farm division and will be reviewing pig farming and management systems where modern equipment plays a vital role.

The Milling and Genetic Update Conference will begin at 10:00 in Meeting Room 3 on the third floor of the SECC in Saigon on Friday March 25, 2016. There is onsite registration of 1,200,000 Vietnamese Dong (US$52).

The second half-day conference is on aquaculture and is called ‘The Aquatic Review Conference 2016’. It will begin at 13:30 and finish at 15:30. Mr. Roger Gilbert will continue from his morning session and address aqua feed production, looking at the issues it faces in the 21st Century. He is also the publisher of International Aquafeed magazine.

Two other presentations will bring nutrition and processing to the attention of delegates. Quick Trieu Nguyen, the aquaculture coordinator of Olmx, a French company specialized in algae products for the industry and strongly represented in Vietnam, will look at ‘Sustainable solutions for optimizing aquatic diets’ This is a must-hear presentation as it is now common knowledge that the industry is actively moving away from fishmeal inclusion and this presentation will look at what’s involved in seeking alternatives.

The final speaker of the day is the globally-renowned Dr. Mian Riaz from Texas A&M University who will address the topic of ‘How to process quality feed using extrusion technology for aqua feeds.

Dr. Riaz is the Director of Food Protein R&D Center, Head of Extrusion Technology Program and graduate faculty in the Food Science and Technology Program at Texas A&M University, USA.
He has published five books, 20 chapters and more than 100 papers on extrusion and other related topics. Three of his books are in the area of extrusion, Extruders in Food Application, Extruders and Expanders in Pet Food, Aquatic and Livestock Feeds and Extrusion Problem Solved.

Dr. Riaz is a frequent speaker at international and national conferences and meetings and so far he has delivered more than 200 presentations in 52 countries. Every year he organizes four courses in the area of extrusion. He has been with the Texas A&M system for 18 years. He also has a teaching appointment in the Nutrition and Food Science Department.

The Aquatic Review Conference 2016 will begin at 13:30 in Meeting Room 3 on the third floor of the SECC in Saigon
On Friday March 25, 2016. There is onsite registration of 1,200,000 Vietnamese Dong (US$52).

Biosecurity and Health Assurance at a Boar Station

Preventing the introduction of disease agents into the farms is a continuous challenge for pork producers and veterinarians.

Is well known that the main route of disease entry to a farm is through introduction of genetic material. The replacement of live animals offers the greatest risk of disease transmission. Artificial insemination decrease this risk; however, biosecurity still is very important because bacteria and viruses can be spread from infected boars to females through semen.

Moreover, the presence of bacterial contamination in semen will decrease the fertilizing capacity of the spermatozoa.

Consequently, it is recommended  an efficient biosecurity protocol  in all the process of boar management, from replacement of new boars, housing and from production to delivery of semen to the farms.

In this paper we will go over the most important concepts of biosecurity for an insemination stud.
