Compound feed manufacturer, ABN, has added Brian Kenyon to its team as a senior poultry nutritionist.
Mr Kenyon, who joins the poultry and pig feed specialists after a 20-year career at Cherry Valley Ducks, will be working alongside Dr Ade Adebiyi within the poultry nutrition team.
“The experience I’ve gained means I fully understand the challenges facing producers today, and the vital role that nutrition plays in helping overcome these,” said Mr Kenyon.
“I enjoy problem solving and hope that the combination of my technical and commercial knowledge will help me deliver nutritional solutions for our customers.”
Commenting that he believed there are huge opportunities within the poultry industry at present, Mr Kenyon added that he also recognised that the industry has “hurdles to overcome”.
“There’s mounting pressure on the use of antibiotics in diets, and addressing campylobacter and salmonella remains high on the agenda, but this is something ABN are researching to help support their customers,” he said.
