Evonik to present precision livestock farming solutions at VIV Asia

EvonikEvonik Industries AG, Germany-based specialty chemicals company, will be promoting its holistic approach to livestock management at VIV Asia in Bangkok, Thailand, from 13-15 March 2019

“Managing livestock is getting more complex and traditional approaches are no longer sufficient. Technological developments now allow producers to use sensors and software to help them better understand the condition of their flocks, helping increase the performance or improve uniformity,” Johann Fickler, animal nutrition’s vice-president know-how, services and digitalisation, explained.

“Precision livestock farming is about going beyond just gathering data. It combines science-based know-how with proven amino services, and innovative nutritional and health concepts, all embedded into specific digital solutions. This holistic approach means growers can better understand and optimize the status of their animals and take appropriate action, including early preventative measures,” he added.

During VIV Asia, Evonik will be presenting a technical session on ‘Introduction to Evonik Precision Livestock Farming’ to discover the latest information on the sector. Attendees at VIV Asia can meet the Evonik animal nutrition team to learn about how the feed additive specialist company is ‘sciencing the global food challenge’ through the development of a range of products and services.

This includes PROXYMet, a MetAMINO-based product which achieves the same bioefficacy as MHA-FA, and which has had many successful trials in India and Asia South. There are also services such as AMINONIR, which assists with specific calibrations for the prediction of crude protein, dry matter, essential and non-essential amino acids for all major feed ingredients, and AMINOSys, which comprises consulting, hardware and software solutions for micro-ingredient handling and dosing in feed mills.

Evonik will be present at the 6th Global Feed and Food Congress (GFFC) which will be held in Bangkok from 11-13 March.
