The Fibre Frontier: nutrition for the second brain
Referred to by some as “the second brain”, the microbiome plays a crucial role in animal physiology. Stimulation of the gut microbiome is emerging as a nutritional strategy for improved animal performance.
As the main “feed” or substrate for bacteria to ferment, fibre is receiving renewed research interest due to its influence on the microbiome.
The International Fibre Summit looks to bring together experts in fibre understanding, animal nutrition and gut function to identify opportunities to exploit fibre to the advantage of the host.
