Alcorn scientist presents at World Agriculture Conference in Qingdao, China

Dr. Michael O. Ezekwe, animal science professor and director of School of Agriculture, Research, Extension and Applied Sciences’ Swine Development Center, has been invited to present a paper at the 2015 World Congress of Agriculture.

The presentation was a part of the parallel forum of the 6th Annual World Gene Convention held November 12-15 in Qingdao, China. Dr. Ezekwe’s presentation was entitled, “Considerations for a Successful Swine Feeding Program for a Small Scale Production.” He also chaired a conference track entitled, “Feeding Technology and Feed Production.”

“This invitation provided an opportunity to discuss some of the research we have done at Alcorn addressing problems of sustainability of swine production,” Ezekwe said. “Feed inadequacies are the limiting factors to sustainability among small-scale producers.”

“At the conference, attended by scientists from all over the world, opportunities to cross-share information and experiences in dealing with problems of increasing production and maintaining sustainability were of major importance,” he added.
