Encouraged me to look carefully at the zinc recommendations

I have good memories of the first Animine Academy in 2015 in Paris. The program was well balanced in interesting scientific presentations by several speakers from  all sorts of different backgrounds and at different levels of expertise, lunch and coffee breaks. This academy with such a scientific approach encouraged me to look carefully at the zinc recommendations and way of application in the current feed formulation. The guidance of the organization staff was perfect, they were willing to help me in the registration for the Academy and finding the right accommodation. The accommodation was really good, and the diner on the river with a vision on the Eifel Tower was really impressive.
