  It is said that the dilemma of the modern era is not to find relevant
information, but rather to know what information can be safely ignored. I
attended the 19th European Symposium on Poultry Nutrition (ESPN) in
Potsdam (near Berlin) during August. Knowing what information is relevant
at a conference such as this is difficult, as so much information is
presented. In this the final edition of SPESFEED News for 2013, I have tried
to extract some of the relevant information from the meeting. The ESPN has
a unique format. Plenary sessions are themed, and each session is followed
by breakaway group discussion. The groups formulate questions for the
speakers, and these questions are discussed in a general forum. I will deal
with each of these sessions separately. Should you require more information
on any topic, please let me know and I will gladly pass on any information
that I can.
