DES MOINES, Iowa (January 4, 2018) – Kemin Industries, a global nutritional ingredient manufacturer that uses science to touch 3.8 billion people every day with its products and services, will host a monthly webinar series in 2018 to share the latest scientific insights on equine gut health.
“We’re thrilled to partner with experts across the equine gut health industry to share new, cutting edge research and findings within the equine industry,” said Rebecca Casey, Product Manager for Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health, North America.
Through the webinar series, attendees will have the opportunity to expand their understanding of equine gut health, learn the effects of a compromised gut barrier and interact directly with the presenting researcher.
The first webinar will be held Friday, January 19, at 9:00 a.m. CST. It will feature Dr. Liara Gonzalez, Assistant Professor of Gastroenterology and Equine Surgery at North Carolina State University. During the webinar, she will present her newly published research, Alterations in Intestinal Permeability: The Role of the “Leaky Gut” in Health and Disease.
“Since our founding in 1961, Kemin has strived to improve the health and performance of animals worldwide,” said Casey. “Building on the science and product success forged in the dairy, beef, poultry and swine industries, Kemin brings that same spirit of science and innovation to the equine performance market. And while “performance” can be defined differently across species, the Kemin commitment to bringing the very best science and nutrition to those who care for, love and feed the animals they keep will always continue.”
