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.
Matthew Bekker and Ermin Magtagnob focuses on management strategies, including trace mineral nutrition to tackle the challenges of breeding from hyperprolific sows.
Intestinal health comprises a wide range of areas, but in this technical article published on Asian Pork, Annafe Perino, Product Manager, Novus Southeast Asia and Pacific focuses creating a good balance in the gut microbiome of young pigs.
