Hungarian dairy farmers learning how to keep cows agile

Anco presented a nutritional solution to support agility in cows to Hungarian dairy farmers at a customer seminar organized by Anco FIT distributor Noack in Hungary.

Takács Tamás, sales manager at Noack comments: ”We introduced Anco FIT to dairy farms in Hungary last year. Since then we have seen a good acceptance of the product and have customers that have been using it repeatedly for quite some time now for more stable performance. Dairy farmers with Somatic Cell Count problems related to nutritional stress factors saw an improvement in response to adding Anco FIT to their dairy rations.”

During the presentation, Gwendolyn Jones from Anco Animal Nutrition Competence highlighted the benefit of more resilient cows with the gut agility activator Anco FIT, as animals that are easier to manage, which again helps to save labour costs. More resilient cows can therefore support higher milk profits, at a time where good labour is becoming scarce on farms, and at the same time there is a need for reducing the use of antibiotics and farms are keeping a greater number of animals.

Application of Anco FIT to dairy cow rations, helps to reduce stress reactions, like oxidative stress, inflammation and reduction in feed intake normally seen in response to stressors like, energy deficiency in the transition period, heat and mycotoxins. The adaptive capacity of the animal and hence its resilience is thereby improved, meaning the negative impact of stressors is much smaller on milk performance and quality. The cow returns more rapidly to her previous state and performance is much more stable even in the face of challenges.

Several other markets, like the USA, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic and Slovakia reported positive responses to Anco FIT in dairy cows in milk component yield and quality.

Born Global Champion Award for ANCO – 4Gamechangers Festival

The Austria’s Born Global Champion prize recognizes ANCO’s success in rapid global expansion and incorporating globalisation into their business strategies from the very beginning. ANCO collected the prize from the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber at the 4Gamechangers festival that took place in Vienna, Austria.

Margarete Schramböck, Austrian Minister of Economic Affairs and Digitization and Harald Mahrer, President of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber, who presented the award said during the ceremony: “We commend the Austrian startups, who have such courage to take on the risk not only to create a new business, but to also carry it out into the world at such an early stage. This contribution from the get-go to our export trade deserves a special thank you and support from us.”

ANCO launched in 2016 and was first to market in the animal feed industry with their gut agility concept. Since then the company gained access to markets of 36 countries through local distribution partners across the globe.

Andreas Kern, managing partner at ANCO responsible for product development explains: ”The novel concept of the ANCO feed supplement range increases resilience to stress factors in pigs, poultry and ruminants by natural means with an agile approach. The gut agility activator products Anco FIT and Anco FIT Poultry, convinced a rapidly growing number of customers including some of the world’s top 10 animal producers to add value to their feed and agility to their production system for safe food.”

Michael Eder, managing partner responsible for business development at ANCO comments: “We are very honoured to receive the prestigious Born Global Champion award and would like to thank all our distribution partners who contributed to our international success. We are expecting further growth to our international platform this year and look forward to continue contributing to sustainable agriculture globally on a larger scale”

Anco FIT on the roll in Asia

At this year’s VIV Asia in Bangkok, you could see that Anco already has a lot more presence in Asia compared to last year. All 8 distributors were actively promoting Anco FIT and Anco FIT Poultry to their contacts at VIV.

The Anco team had new data to share in broilers, layers and pigs. Visitors took note that Anco FIT Poultry repeatedly showed improved laying persistency in layers and layer breeders under commercial conditions.

New scientific data in broilers provided more information on the mode of action Anco FIT Poultry and how it reduces stress reactions that would otherwise have a negative impact on performance and efficiency.

Michael Eder, managing partner at Anco comments: “Asia is a very important market for us and moving forward we believe we will see a lot more activity with Anco FIT products in the months following VIV Asia. We had very interesting discussions and useful feedback, which we will use to optimize our offering. It was great to see so much interest in our gut agility concept.”

IPPE 2019 feedback: How did the Anco booth rate?

This year the Anco booth had a great location at the IPPE trade show in Atlanta. This meant we received more traffic. Here is a short summary of what people thought of the Anco booth:

People were attracted by the backlit Anco logo, which they could see glowing from afar. The big open space of the layout of the booth felt welcoming.

A huge plus for many of the visitors from Latin America, was that most of the Anco team members spoke their language. So, it was almost like coming home, because conversations could be held in Spanish and Portuguese.

In the past year Anco grew a lot and the company has now distribution partners for Anco FIT in more than 30 countries. This means there is a lot more experience with Anco FIT products that can be shared, which was valuable to people that are still new to the products.

Anco FIT Poultry news

Some customers just stopped by to tell us that they fell in love with Anco FIT Poultry, because of the positive experience they had with it on their farm.

Science and proof behind Anco FIT Poultry increased considerably in the months running up to the trade show. Existing and new customers were eager to hear about the latest trial results in broilers and layers from different countries, that we are now able to share.
