“Lallemand’s products, with their track-record of scientific and field evidences are well adapted to answer the needs of today’s animal producer in Asia...”
Over the past few weeks, Lallemand Animal Nutrition has strengthened its visibility in Asia with its participation to Dairy Focus Asia 2008, Asia’s independent technical conference for progressive dairy farmers, nutritionists and veterinarians, that took place in Bangkok, Thailand, as well as products advert campaigns in leading professional journals. To answer the rapidly growing consumer needs and important government pressures in major Asian markets, animal production methods are quickly evolving in China, India, Japan, Thailand, Taiwan, Vietnam… The main objectives of today’s farmers are performance, quality, and safety (pathogen control). In this context, Lallemand Animal Nutrition proven solutions (probiotics, microbiological silage inoculants, highly bioavailable Selenium yeast, prebiotic fibers) are particularly well adapted to the market’s expectations, which drives the company’s development in Asia.
Bruno Rochet, in charge of the Asian market for Lallemand Animal Nutrition, who was invited to speak at Dairy Focus Asia 2008, focused his intervention on the use of ruminant specific live yeast and selenium enriched yeast to manage heat stress in dairy cows and limit its impact on dairy production and cows health (control of sub-acute acidosis and reproductive health), a very common issue in areas of hot and humid climates.
Bruno Rochet comments: "Following recent changes in consumers habits, dairy production has now became a priority in countries were milk consumption was traditionally scarce. Today’s dairy farms turn towards technicality while under pressure from their governments and the industry to maximize both milk yield and quality. Our natural zootechnical feed additives and silage inoculants, supported by sound scientific and field-based evidences of their efficacy and modes of action in dairy cows have been particularly well-received in Bangkok as they can participate in meeting these production objectives."
A participant from Taiwan, Peter Wang (ASPI), added: "In the actual animal production market, producers need to implement safe, natural and environment-friendly production methods which ensure optimal productivity, and solutions such as antibiotic growth promoters are no more acceptable in Asia. In this context, Lallemand’s products, with their track-record of scientific and field evidences are well adapted to answer the needs of today’s animal producer in Asia."
