ADM’s solutions platform, developed in alliance with Austrian-based ANCO Animal Nutrition Competence GmbH, is made up of the feed additive Anco FIT, which incorporates Gut Agility, an activator that empowers animals to be more robust and efficient in the face of dietary challenges and stressors, and CitriStim, an ADM proprietary, unique, whole-cell yeast product with scientifically proven efficacy, ADM said. These two additives are used in combination with an adsorbent to counteract a wide variety of on-farm nutritional challenges.
“Although grain crop challenges vary by climate and region, ADM’s vast network offers expert insight into the landscape of farms across the U.S.,” said Ruben Beltran, product manager for ADM Animal Nutrition. “This insight gives ADM the ability to identify specific nutritional stressors for individual farms and create customized feed solutions while making specie-based palatability adjustments that support optimized intake when grain or ensiled crop quality is potentially compromised.”
ADM said its customizable feed solutions platform is designed for the nutritional management of dairy cattle, swine and poultry. The product line is currently available in the United States.
This is one of ADM’s most recent projects in the feed sector. In June, ADM announced the opening of its new feed facility in Glencoe, Minnesota, U.S., with an annual capacity of 100,000 tonnes. The company also announced that it is investing to expand and modernize its pet food and specialty livestock feed operations in Effingham, Illinois, U.S. The Effingham facility is expected to be fully operational in late 2017 or early 2018.
“We are continuing to expand our capabilities to meet the needs of animal nutrition customers around the globe,” said Brent Fenton, president of ADM Animal Nutrition. “With these new plants, we will be positioned to grow with our customers, helping support them as they succeed. We are excited about these investments to grow and improve our ADM Animal Nutrition business, and we are looking forward to sharing the benefits with our customers.”
