Novus showcases new findings in improving of sow lifetime productivity
REUS, SPAIN (March 25, 2021) – Novus International, Inc., a global leader in health and nutrition solutions for the animal agriculture industry, recently presented the latest findings of feeding sows with bis-chelated trace minerals during the Annual Meeting of American Association of Swine Veterinarians (AASV).
Novus’s Dr. Bradley Lawrence, senior technical services manager, presented new data from a one-year commercial trial showing that sows fed MINTREX® chelated trace minerals had more piglets per sow lifetime associated with improved longevity, and improvements in reproductive efficiency compared with sows fed only inorganic trace minerals.
“Novus aims to boost animal performance and producer profitability,” said Lawrence. “MINTREX® has demonstrated that is a relevant tool to improving sow performance and profitability.”
Since 2012 (Publication of Zhao et al. Carthage trial results in Feedstuffs) trials have demonstrated enhanced reproductive performance and progeny development when using MINTREX® chelated trace minerals in sow diets. These results are indicative of the critical role trace minerals play in hundreds of enzyme systems from reproduction to structural integrity particularly when supplied in a highly available form.
This year the AASV Annual Meeting was conducted virtually and offered many opportunities to interact with fellow attendees in groups or one-on-one digital chats. Tech exhibits, poster presentations and the veterinary student oral and poster competition were important parts of the conference.
