Evonik Animal Nutrition to offer EuroTier visitors a free trial of PROXYMet™

At EuroTier 2018, November 13-16 (Hall 22, Booth C23) Evonik Animal Nutrition will promote its newest concept, PROXYMet™ designed to confirm the superior nutritional value of MetAMINO® versus methionine hydroxy analog.

PROXYMetTM allows customers, for the first time, to verify the results of published studies and trials at their own livestock operation without any need to change their feed formulation in use. With only 65 per cent of MetAMINO®, the same nutritional value is achieved as with 100 per cent MHA-FA.

“Switching completely to MetAMINO® makes it possible to achieve optimal results and realize lasting savings,” says Dr. Alfred Petri, Senior Vice President Sales Animal Nutrition. “And this is in addition to the other advantages of MetAMINO® – like ease of handling and improved mixability.”

Evonik will also showcase their probiotic products, Ecobiol® and Fecinor® with a scientific proven mode of action. Ecobiol® adds value by improving animal uniformity, performance and welfare of the flocks through optimized nutrient utilization.

At Evonik’s booth, visitors will also learn about AMINONIR® Advanced, Evonik’s service evolution for enhanced raw material analysis. Measuring unground samples at the point of delivery, the service improves handling and shortens time of analysis substantially. Claimed to be fast, accurate and reliable, it covers the most comprehensive number of feed ingredients in the industry.

Global Swine Expert Dr. John Htoo and Dr. Mario Müller will present on the ‘Potential and implementation of low protein diets in swine feeding’ at 3.30pm on November 13, DLG Pig Forum, Hall 16, Booth D26.

Visitors are invited to join the team for a prize draw to support Evonik’s corporate social responsibility project Utho Ngathi in South Africa. The project assists Eastern Cape Province communities through a home-based care programme and provides employment with the construction of new poultry housing and a greenhouse.
