Heidi Hall, Anpario’s global technical manager for swine, has been awarded a Nuffield Farming Scholarship to study “The Power of the Microbiome to Produce Happy, Healthy Pigs”.
Hall explains, “The gut contains billions if not trillions of bacteria, fungi and protozoa and is the site of 70% of the body’s immune cells. Managing this population, which is collectively called the microbiome, is essential in optimizing gut health, immune function and animal productivity. I am keen to explore the interaction between nutrition and animal health to fully understand how we can better raise animals for the future in a sustainable way.”

Hall says, “I am thrilled to be awarded a Nuffield Farming Scholarship and planning to travel to USA, China, Denmark and Italy to look at different production systems, discovering novel initiatives to learn how best to produce pigs. I firmly believe in bringing innovative natural solutions to farmers, helping to produce healthy food in a world with growing populations and finite resources without the use of antibiotics in a sustainable and natural way.”
