Project Horizon

What Project Horizon Means for You

ph-infographic Novus’s rich history in science-based solutions and gut health expertise is being leveraged help address a major issue facing the US livestock industries.

Project Horizon brings dedicated resources, research and a customized approach to help customers in the transition to antibiotic-free (ABF) meat production. ABF can be defined as the goal of full antibiotic removal or the intentional reduction of the levels of antibiotics currently being used.

Project Horizon provides customers access to Novus’s internal and external network of industry leading experts in the fields of nutrition, animal health and management.

Our wide portfolio of technologies has been shown to support animal health through nutrition.

Our experts will work with producers to measure the shortcomings/shortfalls in production systems transitioning to reduced or full removal of antibiotics through a dedicated service and deliver recommendations to bring back to par (or to the new norm).



Novus has developed Project Horizon to assist our customers in meeting the complex and evolving antibiotic-free production process.
