Ms García’s first speech was entitled ‘Marine-sulphated polysaccharides as a strategy to boost immunity and improve the digestive status in poultry’. Her presentation shed light on the high importance to keep different components in the intestinal barrier:
“A proper functioning of the intestinal barrier is essential to keep a high-level sanitary status in poultry farming. The MSP (Marine Sulphated Polysaccharides) help us to reinforce the intestinal mucosa and, in consequence, to activate the immune response and mucine secretion”, she said.
Besides, Ms García explained that “the use of polysaccharides that come from marine macro-algae is a very interesting strategy when it comes to mycotoxin risk control”.
On August the 18th the veterinarian focused her speech on the intestinal problems that poultry might experience during the production period as well as the strategies to face these key situations:
“Introducing products based on marine algal polysaccharides in management programmes is a very interesting strategy since it allows us to face the challenges of the production cycle”, she pointed out.
