Alex Hintz

Dr. Hintz works with the North America Sales Team on initiatives that support veterinarians, nutritionists and producers to improve and optimize the health of their pigs. Since joining Novus, he has been instrumental in the company’s MINTREX® in Sows program, which is geared at maximizing lifetime sow productivity and profitability, as well as the Scale Up™ Program for nursery and growing pig performance via health through nutrition.

A native of Wisconsin, Dr. Hintz earned his doctorate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (U.S.). He is a member of the American Association of Swine Veterinarians, currently serving as chairperson of the Nutrition Committee. He’s also a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association.

“NOVUS’ focus on intelligent nutrition really encapsulates my focus and interests around the impacts of nutritional interventions for health and performance in pigs – like improving the immune response and helping pigs during disease challenges. I enjoy working with producers, veterinarians, and nutritionists to optimize the performance of their swine herd and uphold my veterinary oath to help each animal reach its full potential.”
