Start Time:4:00pm CET (Paris) | 10:00am ET (New York)

Duration:60 minutes


Reaching a beneficial intestinal microbiota early in life is desirable for piglets, as microbiota will impact their future health.

The contribution of gastrointestinal tract microbiota to pig health and performance, including metabolism of nutrients, stimulation of immune response, and protection is becoming increasingly evident.

Researchers are exploring how to start the piglet off well, through sow nutrition and setting the gut up well, to improve weaning and then rely less on antibiotics. Then, they say, it is about finding ways to alleviate some of the stresses and pressures on the animal, and look after them during the challenged times as well.

Our webinar will explore the latest insights on this subject with some of the world's leading experts.


Nuria Canibe

Senior Researcher
Aarhus University

I got my veterinary degree in 1990 at the University of Zaragoza, Spain, and in 1995, my Ph. D. degree at The Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University in Denmark. My main research activity during the last years has been microbial ecology of pigs, with focus on the impact of feeding strategies like fermented liquid feed, addition of organic acids, plant materials or probiotics to the feed, and changes in feed processing on the gastrointestinal ecology and growth performance. Strategies like microbiota fecal transplantation have also been a part of my research.

Currently I am working as a technical support for global market in a leading Finnish feed company. I am also involved in different research project as a visiting researcher in University of Helsinki, where my PhD thesis is under evaluation, topic “The role of colostrum quality, development of intestinal microbiota and immunocompetence, in neonate piglet mortality”. I have an expertise in sustainable animal production, animal nutrition, and functional feed development, sales and marketing. Our current research focused on gut microbiota development and immune modulation in neonatal piglets, and finding antibiotic alternative for monogatric animals. I am an entrepreneurial-minded with a long-term plan, focused on the utilization of my research knowledge in the business development.
