ANCO welcomes delegation from South Korea in Austria

Beginning of March ANCO welcomed a group of members from the National Agricultural Cooperative Federation of Korea on tour in Austria. The group was keen to learn more about animal feed production in Austria. Delegates received a short introduction to ANCO Animal Nutrition Competence and a quick tour around the production facilities.

Mr. Kyung Yong, Lee representing NHNongHyup, stated that efficiency of dairy production is currently a key concern in South Korea.

Another member of the delegation mentioned that he sees mycotoxin problems in silage on dairy farms in Korea.
The group took particular interest in ANCO® FIT ruminant, a product from ANCO specifically developed for high performing ruminants.

We now know how the Anco slogan What matters. What works translates into Korean : 문제점. 해결책.

ANCO presents competence in dealing with nutritional stressors

Anco Animal Nutrition Competence develops cost-effective feed solutions for pigs, poultry and ruminants to live up to their performance potential efficiently. One important competence we rely on at ANCO is the knowledge required to support animals successfully in coping with nutritional stressors in feed by nutritional means.

Many animals don’t reach their performance potential, despite carefully formulated diets. This can be due to management and/or environmental factors. But there are also nutritional factors, that we have less control over and which can lead to a whole host of stress reactions in the animal.

Nutritional stressors, e.g. mycotoxins, in the feed will lead to stress reactions such as oxidative stress, inflammation, reduced gut integrity and shifts in the gut microbiota in the animal. This again will make the animal more susceptible to disease and performance efficiency of the animal will be sub-optimal.
