For the modern producer, chronic low-grade gut inflammation has a negative impact on the productivity of the operation. Often unseen clinically, but definitely felt economically, it impairs the animals’ ability to absorb nutrients, grow and reach their genetic potential. In this webinar Innovad is proud to share their own cutting-edge research on this important topic and their novel model to demonstrate chronic gut inflammation and how it can be tackled. Dr. Mike Kogut from USDA will also share his findings on the patterns and biomarkers of chronic intestinal inflammation using this model.
