World Pork Expo 2018

It was a great time in Des Moines, Iowa, USA for World Pork Expo June 6-8, 2018!

Novus was proud to join the best in the swine industry in Des Moines, Iowa, to discuss the latest in an array of research, technology and solutions aimed at improving the efficiency, profitability and sustainability of global meat production. Working to help meet those demands, Novus is constantly working to educate and update nutritionists and producers on their latest research and product findings.

The value of MINTREX goes beyond usual trace mineral supplementation to outperform other inorganic and organic sources.


Gut health is a key factor affecting performance in the nursery and beyond. Reducing the number of factors negatively affecting the gut like anti-nutritive factors and a build-up of undigested protein can improve performance greatly. CIBENZA® DP100 works to break down the protein in feed to more usable amino acids allowing for increased digestion and a reduction in the negative effects associated with an unhealthy gut.


The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Often, the concept of feeding a combination product is overlooked because each of the ingredients can be purchased individually, often cheaper. The key to understanding why those products were chosen or the ratios in which they are included is the key to maximizing the benefits. Novus offers three organic acid products, ACITVATE® DA, ACTIVATE WD and ACIDOMATRIX ™ GH which are formulated to optimize gut health and animal performance.

Oxidative stress is a broad term used to describe the damaging effects of free radicals in the body. For pigs, this damage can have a profound negative impact on performance. Many factors can increase oxidative stress, including disease pressure, environmental extremes, and dietary challenges. Working with the Novus sales and technical service team can help identify if SANTOQUIN® feed preservative is needed in feed. Some of the key questions to consider when evaluating if SANTOQUIN is needed are:

    • I add supplemental liquid fat to my diets
    • I feed DDGS
    • My feeds do not contain a mycotoxin binder
    • My pigs are challenged with bacterial disease in the nursery or grow-finish phase
    • I add Vitamin E to my diets beyond what is considered the minimal level for growth
    • It is summer and my site is located in a hot climate
    • I use rendered animal protein products in my diets (fish meal, poultry meal, meat and bone meal, etc.)
    • I would like to use more ingredients other than corn and soybean meal in my diets without losing gain or feed efficiency
