International Feed Technology Conference

Organized by Wageningen University and the VICTAM Foundation


1st International Feed Technology Conference

Wageningen University and the Victam Foundation will host the 1st International Feed Technology Conference (IFTC 2019) directed towards the evolvements in animal feed processing. The conference will take place on June 12 & 13 during VICTAM International 2019 at the KoelnMesse in Cologne, Germany.

Join IFTC 2019Join IFTC 2019

The 1st International Feed Technology Conference will bring together people from the universities, the animal feed industry as well as international researchers in order to exchange their knowledge and expertise, to share technical and scientific developments in the fields of animal feed technology and to discuss research results. The organization sincerely hopes that the Feed Technology Conference will serve as a medium to enhance the cooperation between industry and universities to create innovative projects and collaborations.

Program IFTC 2019Program IFTC 2019

The 1st International Feed Technology Conference will see thematic presentations with the themes of raw material valorization, formulation and technology and process developments. 

At the first day of the Congress (12 June 2019) Prof. dr. Jürgen Zentek (University of Berlin, Germany) will speak about the use of technologically and fermentatively processed proteins in monogastric animals in the first theme: ‘Valorization of raw materials by technology’.  We expect to discuss a further item on changes in molecular structures induced by feed processing (Prof. dr Peiqiang Yu, University of Saskatchewan, Canada) and nutritional changes in cereals and roughage induced by novel technologies.

The theme of ‘Feed formulation & technology’ will be introduced by Prof. dr. Hans H. Stein (University of Illinois, USA) who will speak about the interaction between feed formulation and feed technology in diets fed to pigs. A further subject is the interactive effect of nutrient density and feed form on the growth performance and feed efficiency in broilers, that will be presented by Dr Reza Abdollahi (Massey University, New Zealand).

The final theme ‘Process developments’ will be given on the second day (13 June 2019) of the Conference and will be introduced by Dr Menno Thomas (Zetadec, Netherlands). His talk is about fundamental factors in feed manufacturing aiming towards a unifying processing framework. Further subject are recent developments in the carry-over in feed ingredients (Dr Fabrice Putier, Tecaliman, France) and a presentation on novel technologies on unicellular organisms to result in sustainable production of animal feed by Dr Dejan Miladinovic (Centre for Feed Technology, Norway).

Currently, the Scientific Committee is active to make final decisions about the subject and speakers for a final program. Since more than 30 Abstracts were received for the International Feed technology Congress, we can already mention that the Congress is a broad oriented and will have a very interesting program, directed to animal feed technology.

Speaker(s):
Prof. dr. ir. Leo den Hartog VICTAM Foundation
Prof. dr. ir. Leo den Hartog

Leo den Hartog is member of the board of the VICTAM Foundation and director of R&D at Trouw Nutrition . He is also part-time professor in Sustainable Animal Nutrition in Production Chains at Wageningen University. It was from this same university that den Hartog graduated in Animal Sciences in 1978, and where he obtained his PhD on the relationship between nutrition and fertility in gilts and sows in 1984. 

In 1989, den Hartog received the Henneberg Lehmann Award from the University of Göttingen, Germany. In 1999, he accepted an honorary PhD from the University of Kaposvar, Hungary. In 2014, he was given the Molenaar Award from the Animal Nutrition magazine in the Netherlands and Belgium. This award is given every two years to a person for his or her contribution to the animal feed and additive industry. 

Den Hartog’s extensive experience in animal production is reflected in over 450 scientific and applied articles and seven books as author or co-author. To date, he has given more than 600 lectures in over 35 different countries. He has also been chairman of Dutch trade missions on behalf of the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality to China, Taiwan, South Korea, Brazil, Argentina, Chile and South Africa.

Prof. Jürgen Zentek Freie Universität Berlin, Germany
Prof. Jürgen Zentek

Prof. Zentek received his degree as veterinarian in 1985 from the Veterinary school of Hannover. He received his doctoral degree in 1987 and the degree as specialist in animal nutrition and dietetics in 1993.

The habilitation (venia legendi at the Hannover Vet School) was finalized in 1994. He had an extraordinary professorship at the Hannover vet school from 1999-2001. After one year as research scientist in Bristol/UK, school of veterinary science, he was appointed on the chair of clinical nutrition at the Veterinary University of Vienna where he became the head of the institute of nutrition. In 2005, he was appointed as professor at the Institute of Animal Nutrition, Freie Universität Berlin.
