The 9th European Equine Health and Nutrition Congress (EEHNC) was organized in the historic city of Utrecht (The Netherlands) at February 16-17, 2019. Orffa was again a proud sponsor of this two-day congress, in which representatives from all over the world participated. Specialists in nutrition, pharmacology and veterinary sciences were dedicated to contribute to the congress.
This year, activities revolved around the topic ‘Small things’. The latest scientific updates were given on themes like the role of microbes and nutrients in maintaining gastrointestinal health of the horse, and developmental programming (How nutrition of the mare can influence the foal’s health). Challenges such as obesity, insulin resistance, gastric ulcers and stress behavior can be related to these themes.
Orffa is glad to contribute to the development of knowledge on equine health and nutrition by being a sponsor.
