Special Guest John Ratzenberger and Kemin's Technical Services Manager, Dr. Tom Marsteller

On today's episode, John Ratzenberger sits down with Kemin's Technical Services Manager, Dr. Tom Marsteller. They discuss how beta glucans have been used in humans and livestock to enhance host protective immunity. Minimizing the impact of disease challenges early on in an animal’s life can improve its ability to gain weight faster, increase feed efficiency and reduce its likelihood to spread disease. They will also review outcomes from a PRRSv-positive nursery trial and demonstrate applicability across other species. Join us for this week's episode of Nutra Blend's Animal Agriculture podcast!
