GfE Annual Meeting in Göttingen
took place in March 2015 (Gesellschaft für Ernährungsphysiologie). An overview was presented on all hot topics in academic animal nutrition research in German speaking countries. The following issues were addressed: Feed stuff evaluation and feeding, digestion, feed additives, environment, energy, undesirable substances, fatty acids, amino acids and nitrogen, transport and epithelial physiology and minerals. Participants unanimously agreed: “Knowledge exchange on scientific methods is THE link between academic research, industrial research and competent authorities.”
