World Pork Expo: Feedback on Anco FIT from US pig farms

Anco FIT was one of the key products at the ADM booth at World Pork Expo 2017 in Des Moines Iowa. ADM is the US distributor for Anco FIT and has been promoting Anco FIT to its customers since September 2016.

The commercial sales team at the ADM booth, which has been actively selling Anco FIT to pig farms reported some feedback from Anco FIT users on pig farms.

Feedback from pig farms using Anco FIT included
“Very pleasant to handle the product”
“I observed more pigs at the feeder and they stayed at the feeder longer. It seems Anco FIT encourages nursery pigs to eat more”

About Anco FIT

Anco FIT is a gut agility activator. designed to manage gut agility by dietary means and is applied as a feed additive to complete feed. Application of Anco FIT to pig diets empowers animals to adapt to nutritional stress factors more efficiently and live up to their performance potential. It relies on bioactive substances in the formula, that help to reduce negative stress reactions such as reduced appetite, oxidative stress, inflammation and reduced gut integrity in response to nutritional stressors, which increases the amount of energy available for growth. For the nutritionist, it provides greater control over the cost-effectiveness of diets.

Anco FIT launch in Chile

At the end of March 2 events were held as part of the Anco FIT launch in Chile. Feed millers, pig and poultry producers from Chile were invited to attend launch events in either Santiago or in Chillan, Chile.

The events were organized by Nutringen, distributor for Anco in Chile. Cristian Dasso, Managing Director from Nutringen comments: “Attendance at both events showed that there was high interest to learn about Anco FIT as a new concept to manage cost-effectiveness of pig and poultry diets through gut agility.”

Marco Nunes, Technical Manager from Anco presented the latest knowledge on practical aspects of corn quality control in animal nutrition, including managing gut agility. This was followed by an introduction to Anco FIT and Anco FIT Poultry from Cliff Hsun, Regional Director Anco Latin.

The Nutringen team invited everybody to network over a glass of cocktail after the event. Alvaro Villarroel, Sales and Marketing Manager at Nutringen was pleased with the outcome and says: ”We had a good turn-out at both events with key players from the pig and poultry industry in Chile expressing their interest in Anco FIT. I look forward to follow up on the interest we received and I am confident that we will be contributing to the cost-effectiveness of diets in Chilean pig and poultry production systems with this new concept.”

Webinar: Expected mycotoxin impact on animal feed and production due to current grain storage conditions

As part of a webinar hosted by Neogen, Anco Animal Nutrition Competence presented the latest knowledge on the economic impact of mycotoxins on animal production and pets. The focus was on deoxynivalenol (DON), zearalenone and T2-toxin, which are mycotoxins that, based on Neogen surveys, are currently seen at high levels in corn in several parts of the US.

To view a recorded version of the webinar, please click on the video link in the image below.

Dr. Gwendolyn Jones from Anco, highlighted: “Guidelines on mycotoxin tolerance in feed can help to assess the risk, but differ between countries and don’t consider the effect of co-contamination. Recent data from meta-analysis studies including up to 98 scientific trials per species can help to get an objective view on the commercial impact of mycotoxins. Negative impacts of DON on maintenance requirements and feed efficiency in pigs, poultry and ruminants should not be ignored.”

Dr. Duarte Diaz, Associate Professor, University of Arizona, presented information explaining the background to the trends showing increases in mycotoxin prevalence in grains.

Dr. Duarte Diaz is a well-known expert in the field of mycotoxins. His research for the past 15 years has focused on the effects of mycotoxins on agriculture. In 2005 he served as editor of “The Mycotoxin Blue Book”, a publication that focuses on the applied impact of mycotoxins on agriculture. The book has sold over 5000 copies and is widely considered an important reference on the subject.

Neogen is a leading company in the field of diagnostics for food and animal feed safety with a worldwide presence. The company now has more than 200 diagnostic tests to offer customers.

Pat Frasco, director of sales milling, grain and pet food at Neogen, reported during the webinar: “DON is currently very prevalent in corn at levels of 5, 10 ppm and greater. Iowa reported Zearalenone levels as high as 1300 ppb in corn.”
