ST. LOUIS, Oct. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The World Conference on Animal Production (WCAP), organized by the World Association of Animal Production, is held once every five years, so it is with great anticipation that the 11th WCAP kicks off in Beijing, China on October 15th. Novus is honored to once again participate in this important event dubbed the "Olympics" of animal science by the industry. In addition to Diamond sponsorship of the six-day conference, Novus is hosting an informative half-day seminar entitled, "Gut Health: Creating New Value for Food Safety."

"Good gut health builds a strong foundation for animal performance and food safety," notes Dr. Chris Knight, Senior Vice President, Research and Development for Novus. "When infections occur in the intestinal tract, the intestinal barrier against pathogens and the nutrient absorption process is greatly impaired. Animal performance and producer's profitability are reduced, while consumers are left worrying about the resulting product quality. Novus's health and nutritional solutions are designed to help producers manage animal gut health and add new value to food safety."

Novus's Gut Health seminar will be held on Friday, October 18th from 8:30 a.m. until noon at No. 2 Convention Hall and will feature key industry experts from Novus and leading international universities discussing the importance and relevance of animal gut health and its impact on food safety. To see a complete agenda please visit www.novusint.com/wcap2013.

Also, Novus has organized two speakers at the plenary session on Saturday, October 19th. The first, "Is the rising demand for animal protein fueling climate change?," will be led by Dr. Frank Mitloehner of the University of California, Davis, and the second, "Structural integrity challenges in production animals," will be led by Dr. Mercedes Vazquez-Anon, Director, Nutrition Research for Novus.

For more than 20 years, Novus has been developing science-based nutritional solutions and services to support producers in achieving high animal performance with sustainable profitability. For more information about Novus's complete portfolio of products and programs designed to support producers in all aspects of production, visit the corporate web site at www.novusint.com.
