Feedinfo spoke with Ermin Magtagnob, Technical Services Manager-Philippines & Vietnam at Novus, to discuss market conditions in Southeast Asia, and find a bit more about the role ACTIVATE® DA can play to mitigate ASF, which continues to spread throughout the region.
Since the African Swine Fever virus (ASF/ASFv) reached China in August of 2018, articles have been published and
seminars held on “what to do next” to improve biosecurity in an effort to prevent the spread of the disease. With
the absence of an available vaccine, ASF has continued to jump from one farm to another in affected countries.
The question seems to be, are we missing something to help manage the spread of ASF or is the spread of ASF
beyond our control?
Novus International recently completed a trial at a Key Laboratory in Vietnam to evaluate the efficacy and dose requirement of its nutritional feed acidifier, ACTIVATE® DA, to reduce the survival rate of ASFv in feed.
In 1991, Novus International, Inc. was founded with a mission “to make a clear difference in sustainability meeting the growing global need for nutrition and health.” The outcome of Novus’s mission statement is clear – the availability of healthy and affordable animal protein can positively impact populations, particularly when produced with regard for environmental impacts, feed costs and animal performance. Looking back at the last three decades, Novus President and CEO Dan Meagher said the company has always endeavored to offer solutions for the industry’s biggest challenges.
