IDF World Dairy Summit 2018

Nutrition and Health, Animal Health and Welfare, Fermented Milk
The line-up for 18 October includes a series of parallel sessions.

“Do we really need to eat less dairy products to reduce fat, sugar and salt intake?” and what is the “Nutritional difference between milk and alternatives?” These issues will be discussed based on current scientific evidence and the results of epidemiological studies.

Recently, animal health and welfare issues have become very important for the sustainable development of the dairy industry for the next generation. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the most highlighted global issues on animal health and welfare with national action plans established in many countries to overcome AMR under the concept of One Health.

At the IDF World Dairy Summit 2018, the Animal Health and Welfare Conference will cover some emerging issues on infectious diseases in dairy farming, including paratuberculosis, AMR, animal health and welfare, and the health and safety of dairy workers. The conference will provide various insights on improvements in  animal health and welfare from the viewpoints of dairy customers and farmers around the world.

A symposium of Fermented Dairy and Health Benefits will focus on the health benefits of fermented dairy. The impact of gut
microbiota on human health and metabolic diseases, and strategies for the development of effective probiotics will be presented.
