Multinational feed specialty additives producer Nutriad was a prominent participant at the VIV Europe in Utrecht (the Netherlands). Technical- and commercial staff attended industry professionals, media and academics at the Nutriad booth while business development managers hosted scientific presentations at the various conferences and seminars.
Olga Averkieva, Business Development Manager Mycotoxin Management, presented at the Smart Pig Farming seminar where she summarised the latest insides into mycotoxin risk management in pigs. Mrs. Averkieva explained how pig producers can minimize the risk associated with mycotoxins by analysing weather data and assessing newly harvested grains. She shared the latest technology that allows the use of smart phones to measure mycotoxin levels in grains and mobile applications to calculate the right dosage of the mycotoxin deactivator. Averkieva introduced the Nutriad application Mycoman® that is available free of charge and has been well received by producers.
Daniel Ramirez, Business Development Manager Digestive Performance, presented on how feed additives can be used in an optimal way in specific programs, allowing nutritionist to achieve the targeted effects. Mr. Ramirez highlighted that besides the application of specific feed additives, a broad number of strategies including farm management, hygiene, nutrition and preventive medicine need to be applied to ensure optimum results. An integral approach will ensure a positive return on investment by decreasing risks on farm level whilst increasing the health status. Nutriad’s Adimix® - sodium butyrate – portfolio has for example proven to fit in a AGP free strategy, which is supported by strong scientific data.
