At the most recent Fericerdos (INTA – Marcos Juarez, Córdoba, Argentina), on August 22 to 23rd 2019, MTS Argentina launched Anco FIT for the pig market in Argentina. MTS Argentina is the exclusive distributor for the Anco FIT product line in Argentina.
Visitors to the tradeshow were able to find out more about the application of Anco FIT in pigs at the MTS Argentina booth. On top of that they had the chance to listen to presentations made by Dr. Ismael Dolso (Veterinarian, Professor of Rio Cuarto, Cordoba University and consultant) and Dr. Marco Aurelio Stefanoviciaus Nunes (Veterinarian, Technical Manager Anco Latin), about the impact of stressors in swine production and how Anco FIT in the feed can help to reduce the impact.
Dr. Marco Aurelio commented: “Pig producers in Argentina are looking for solutions to maintain consistent performance and efficiency in high producing pigs, despite increasing restrictions on the use of antibiotics in feed.” He presented data showing the positive impact of Anco FIT during critical stages of pig production such as gestation, lactation and post-weaning, where pigs are generally more sensitive to stress.
Nicolas Castro Olivera, owner of MTS Argentina highlighted:” The launch of Anco FIT at Fericerdos, is opening the doors to introduce a novel concept with clear benefits for modern competitive pig farming. This comes at a time, when the pig market in Argentina is seeing significant growth due to the increase in local consumption and exports to Europe and Asia.”
The adaption formula in Anco FIT (a complex formula based on phytogenic active compounds) is specifically designed to enhance the animal’s agility (adaptive capacity) for greater resilience to stressors.
Feedback from the audience at this event indicated that the gut agility concept of Anco FIT was very well received.
Fericerdos is the most important event of the Argentine pig production sector. 1200 producers, entrepreneurs and various professionals from all over the country attended this year’s event. Today Argentina stands out as an important pig producer in Latin America, with more than 350,000 sows in production. Growth expectations of the pig sector are high due the current economic climate and opportunities that pig production presents.
