--The Nutritionist's Role in Poultry Industry Profitability Becomes More Evident When Processing and Consumer Needs Are Considered--

ST. LOUIS, Jan. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Building on the annual tradition discussing topics challenging the entire poultry industry over a free lunch, the Novus luncheon at IPSF brings expert Dr. Shelly McKee of Auburn University to present "How Consumer Preference Drives Poultry Processing." The Novus luncheon at IPSF starts at 12 Noon ET in the Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC) Room B401 and 402.

Dr. Shelly McKee of Auburn University will discuss current challenges along the poultry value chain, and how poultry science can impact consumer satisfaction. As a global leader in poultry nutritional solutions, Novus aims to understand the connections between the science in the lab and the product on the shelf. By thinking of the end product with the beginning nutrition in mind, our industry can improve quality and return on investment throughout the supply chain.

Shelly McKee is a native of Texas and is an Associate Professor in the Auburn University Department of Poultry Science, The Poultry Products Safety and Quality Peak of Excellence Program. Prior to arriving at Auburn University, Dr. McKee was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Food Science and Technology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Shelly taught Food Product Development and Egg Processing at UNL. Her program at Auburn includes research on poultry meat and egg quality and safety.

"Taking processing challenges and connecting them to front-end nutrition is common sense for the poultry industry," says Michael Whitmer, Novus Global Poultry Market Manager. "Providing this platform for industry representatives, researchers, academicians and students at IPSF, highlights the many opportunities that nutritionists have to influence the profitability of the entire integrated complex from the very beginning."

operations aren’t merging to become one discipline. Nor is operations simply going away. Rather, DevOps is leading software development and operations – together with other practices such as security – to collaborate and coexist with less overhead and conflict than in the past. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will discuss what modern operational practices look like in a world in which applications are more loosely coupled, are deve...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
