This summer, Novus put in the next generation of tank telemetry at mills that include enhanced features. Our systems manager, Dr. Johnny Wilson, takes us through what makes Novus unique:
Diets include supplemental zinc (Zn), copper (Cu) and manganese (Mn) - often as inorganic salts or inorganic
crystalline forms. The disadvantage of these inorganic sources is the mineral is unprotected from numerous
antagonisms and interactions in the digestive tract. Consequently, the mineral can bind to these antagonists,
preventing absorption. This can result in mineral inadequacies for achieving optimum health, performance, or
structural integrity or extra costs to over-feed minerals that aren’t utilized by the animal.
MINTREX Cu provides less reactive copper (Cu) in the diet reducing the risk of oxidation of fats,
leaving more energy for the piglet. Additionally, delivering more Cu to absorption sites in the intestine allowing
for more uptake, a lower excretion and environmental impact and provides improved nursery performance at
lower Cu inclusion rates compared to ITMs.
Heavier pigs can generate more profit. Several factors can limit or inhibit the amount a pig gains
during grow-out. Optimizing factors such as genetics, management, environment and nutrition
all play a role in the growth and performance of the animal; by optimizing just one of those
factors such as copper (Cu) availability, more weight can be realized.
Novus helps producers manage the high cost of feed ingredients without sacrificing performance.
Novus has options to support gut health and manage gut flora, which helps maximize profitability.
Novus has developed a broad portfolio of solutions built around your challenges and needs.
Novus provides you with the tools to manage microbial contamination and feed oxidation.
