Webinar for poultry farmers in Nigeria – register here

Together with our Anco FIT distributor for Nigeria, Caesar and Jones, we are organizing a free educational webinar for poultry farmers in Nigeria.

Nutritional options for more stable and longer productivity in poultry

25th of September 2020

10am Nigerian time

How to register

This webinar is for free and you can register at the link below to join. We look forward to your active participation.

What to expect

Stability in farm income and adaptive properties are two key factors that have been linked to high resilience of poultry farms in Nigeria.  But what can poultry farmers do to support this cost-effectively by nutritional means to stay competitive and reduce the need of antibiotic growth promotors?

In this webinar Dr. Gwendolyn Jones will be looking at how novel nutritional concepts can support current efforts to increase the adaptive capacity of farms for resilience in Nigerian poultry production. This includes adaptation strategies of poultry farmers to rising temperatures in Africa.

The adoption of existing and new technologies for adapting to climate change and variability is a high priority for many ecological regions in Nigeria. Adaptive capacity is the ability of individuals and communities to adjust to changes, to take advantage of opportunities or to cope with the consequences.

The adaptive capacity of poultry farms starts in the bird. Find out how improving the adaptive capacity of the bird by nutritional means can lead to more stable incomes, maintain higher productivity for longer in laying hens and reduce the need for antibiotic growth promotors in broiler and egg production.

About the speaker

Gwendolyn is educated to PhD level in animal science in agriculture. For her animal science degree at the University of Edinburgh she carried out her undergraduate research project at the University of Zimbabwe, giving her exposure to challenges for animal nutrition in Africa. In addition, she gained a MBA from the University of Iowa in the US.

Anco Brazil poultry webinar has attracted great interest

In July Anco Brazil hosted a poultry webinar in co-operation with our distributor Evance, which caught the attention of an engaged audience in the Brazil poultry industry. The webinar aimed to provide inspiration for cost-effective poultry production in times of crisis.

Dr. Marco Aurelio Nunes, Technical Manager at Anco presented strategies to reduce production costs with the least possible impact on production indexes. This included nutritional solutions that can be used to increase resilience in birds and mitigate the impact of stressors on performance in poultry. He also shared some simple evaluation tools that can help egg producers determine, which strategy would be most cost-effective, based on their individual circumstances.

Marcelo Blumer, executive director at Anco Brazil commented: “We are excited about the amount of interest we could generate with our webinar and that attendees were fully engaged. The questions and answer session at the end showed us that people were following the webinar closely and were eager to learn more. As a result of the success, we are already thinking of a topic for a second webinar which we are planning for later this year. This is an important time to make every effort to stay connected, collaborate and to keep learning, so we can find ways to adapt quickly and together for profitable animal production.”

Kombikorma Russia 2020 – Anco FIT made a winning entry

Anco FIT was in two places at the same time this year. The Kombikorma in Russia was held in the same week as the IPPE in Atlanta. So, the spotlight was on Anco FIT in two continents in the last week of January.

Our distributor for Russia, Safeed part of Noack Group, entered Anco FIT in the traditional contest for best product of the show in the feed section and Anco FIT came out as a winner. Great start to the year in Russia, with hopefully more good things to come.

We like to thank everybody at the team Safeed for supporting Anco FIT at the booth at Komiborma and visitors showing interest.

About Kombikorma

The Kombikorma – Cereals – Mixed Feed – Veterinary (MVC) international trade show takes place in Moscow every year with more than 201 exhibitors.

Additional information

After the IPPE is before the next show

After the IPPE we are already planning ahead for EuroTier 2020, which is approaching fast this year.

However, first we would like to thank everybody who visited our booth at IPPE 2020 for your interest in our company and products. People just popping round to let us know how happy they are with Anco FIT Poultry in the diets for their birds were particularly encouraging and a real boost for us.

Despite the Coronavirus, people travelled from all over the world to come to the IPPE. We had people from at least 20 different countries come to our booth, which shows the international reach of this show. Still the majority came from Latin America and the US.

We hope everybody made it back home safely and is enjoying good health. In times like this we realize just how important health is too us. Thankfully currently health organizations across the world are teaming up to help us keep agile, i.e. increase our ability to adapt to the new virus.

2020 is going to be a very busy year and sets the foundation for a new decade. With that we would like to encourage you to

Keep your birds and yourself agile for more resilience in the face of the challenges the new decade may bring.

Hope to see you again at IPPE 2021.

2020 already – Anco is VIP guest at the New Year’s welcome in Vienna

This month we were invited by the Lower Austrian Federal Economic Chamber to their 2020 New Year’s Welcome as a VIP company for having received the Born Global Champion award in 2019. The event took place in the impressive Palais Niederösterreich in Vienna. We were excited to meet other prize winning and successful Austrian companies at the event and to be given a traditional token of luck for the New Year by the Austrian chimney sweepers. 2020 definitely will be a good year now.

Some of the cornerstone initiatives that were highlighted for the success of the Austrian business economy included innovative apprenticeship schemes and those supporting a cleaner environment, such as innovations for renewable energies.

The event also reminded us that we are already at the beginning of the 5th year of Anco being in business. As they say, time flies when you are having a good time. We have come a long way since the beginning of an idea. Last year in April we were awarded for Born Global Champion, which already marked many budding business relationships and partnerships on a global level. Fast forwarding 9 months on from that we can say that what was budding before has really started to blossom and new Anco buds appeared on the global map.

We would like to thank everybody that has supported us to get where we are today and hope that over the coming years of the new decade, we can celebrate new milestones, enjoy our current friendships and build new ones around the world.

IPPE 2020 – Visit the Anco booth for resilience in the new decade

Another year, another IPPE in Atlanta. However, what’s new is that IPPE 2020 is at the start of a new decade. Speak to the Anco team at booth A237 to find out how you can support your poultry production system for a more resilient decade.

The poultry industry is facing sweeping changes in climate, demographics, technology, markets and regulations. In the new decade change is most likely to happen even more frequently and faster. One of the big questions for the 2020s certainly will be how poultry producers can keep up and adapt to the rapid pace of change.

Developing greater resilience of a poultry production system to cope with challenges and change starts with the resilience of birds. Improved resilience in birds can be achieved through new breeding goals, but also by management and nutritional means.

More resilient birds will certainly be beneficial for profitability in the face of having to adapt to a hotter climate, a lack of qualified labour and a requirement to reduce the use of antibiotic growth promotors. For egg producers it can also help to facilitate longer laying periods to reduce production costs and environmental impact of the production system.

Come and see the Anco team and learn about how to keep your birds agile for greater resilience.

Where to find us

The Anco team will be present at the IPPE 2020 in Hall A booth 237. We look forward to welcoming you and learn about what matters most to you in the 2020s.

Thailand –Protech Animal Health seminar for egg producers

Egg producers in Thailand were interested to learn about the benefits of increasing resilience in laying hens with the gut agility activator Anco FIT Poultry. A seminar organized by Protech Animal Health co. ltd, Anco distributor in Thailand, was well attended.

Dr. Sasitorn Tungkanasing, product manager at Betagro comments: “We were happy to see such great interest in the gut agility concept from Anco. It gives us confidence for our plans in 2020. We are now following up with the leads from this event and looking forward to be a source of help to them to support laying persistence for more profitable egg production.”

The event included a presentation from Professor Dr. Theerawit Poeikhampam, Faculty of Agriculture Kasetsart University on Management and feeding techniques for laying hens in the summer season.

Michael Eder, managing director at Anco, introduced the science behind Anco FIT Poultry and practical experience with applying the product to laying hen diets. The data in his presentation demonstrated how Anco FIT Poultry can benefit laying hens in the critical early laying period and can help to sustain higher egg production in the later stages of egg production.

Thailand is the third biggest producer of hen and duck eggs in Southeast Asia, after Indonesia and Malaysia. Thai consumers prefer brown eggs, so brown laying hen breeds are predominantly used as the breed of choice for commercial egg production in Thailand.
