How do we feed the world’s future population and the growing global demand for protein?
A key part of the answer is through unlocking efficiency of feed ingredients and in lowering the challenges of anti-nutrients found in some non-traditional feedstuffs. Enzymes not only help to increase the availability of costly nutrients, but also support animal performance by way of reduced damaging effects of anti-nutritional factors, in turn contributing to reduced animal production costs.

80-85% of all nursery pig producers use a form of copper as a growth agent and gut health strategy. So what separates one form of copper from another? Inorganic copper has to be fed at higher levels due to low bioavailability and also often becomes bound to antagonists in the GI tract making most of the mineral unavailable. The wasted mineral is excreted. By supplying a highly bioavailable organic form of copper, piglets absorb more mineral and have higher ADG. MINTREX® chelated trace minerals offers organic copper that is proven to improve ADG and feed conversion compared to inorganic copper.
