Lumis Enzymes organized Seminars in South East Asia Lumis Enzymes organized multiple seminars in South East Asia that covered various key topics like the El Nino challenges which has globally impacted the climatic conditions, the variability and non-availability of essential ingredients due to reduced harvests and the inflation of ingredient prices. The seminars also addressed the various geopolitical issues causing widespread implications on the international trade and also trade ban on certain key ingredients. The seminars highlighted the need of sourcing alternate ingredients and the adoption of sustainable practices to minimize the environmental impact. The seminars were led by eminent speakers with extensive knowledge and several years of experience in the feed industry.

At the outset and on behalf of Lumis Enzymes, Mr. Nicklas Jonow delivered a welcome note to the speakers and the attendees of the seminars. He provided an overview of the agenda and also highlighted the importance of the topics covered in the seminars.

Mr. Lesley Nernberg, respected poultry and swine nutritionist presented useful insights about alternative feed ingredients and extracting their nutritional values. He provided very relevant information on the nutrient composition of the conventional and alternate feed ingredients while also suggesting valuable information on the utilization of alternative feed ingredients. He also highlighted that Lumis has been proactively researching on these alternate ingredients, recognizing their potential as essential or mandatory ingredients in the near future. He further discussed on the technological features of the unique enzyme combinations from Lumis, that would play a very vital role in optimizing feed efficiency and maximizing economic benefits through the use of these alternate feed ingredients.

Assoc. Prof Dr. Yuwares Ruangpanit, a distinguished animal nutritionist delivered a presentation on the importance of effective feed ingredient management. She gave a detailed explanation on how low protein diets would not only help to reduce the water consumption, nitrogen excretion, ammonia emission and enteric pathogens but also help to substantially reduce the feed production cost. She also emphasised on the significance of precision nutrition and feeding practices in promoting sustainable poultry/animal production.

Mr. Panu Nuangjamnong who has several years of experience at GISTDA, a well-known space agency in Thailand presented several geospatial data based on the highly advanced space technologies. He elaborated on the critical parameters that influence a given crop cultivation and harvesting, including the effects of current climatic changes causing droughts, flooding, temperature shifts etc. According to the comprehensive data provided by Panu, these variations in climatic conditions are leading to drastic drop in the crop production. He underlined the need of the feed industry to prioritize on the use of alternate ingredients over the conventional ingredients.

Dr. Ekalux, provided very valuable insights on the global feed ingredient price trend over the past few years and also projected the future price inflations. He presented several dynamics on how the use of alternate feed ingredients would help in reducing feed production costs while also improving return on investment (ROI).

Dr. Tanadon furnished detailed information on the role of Lumis enzymes while making use of alternate feed ingredients. He emphasised that due to the broad substrate specificity of
Lumis Enzymes, it provides the customers flexibility to use a wide range of ingredients. He also mentioned that use of Lumis enzymes helped in overcoming the ingredient variability, improved animal performance and resulted in lowering feed production costs. He further added that the exceptional technical features of Lumis enzymes have set new bench marks for other enzyme manufacturers in the feed industry.

Overall, the seminars arranged by Lumis Enzymes, provided valuable insights into the feed industry's challenges and opportunities. The seminars were well-received by the attendees and showcased Lumis' commitment towards the industry, its customers and stakeholders on the latest developments and best practices.
