DSM Nutritional Products, a leading supplier of vitamins, carotenoids, eubiotics and enzymes to the global feed industry, showcased innovation with global products and local solutions at VIV Asia 2015. Asia Pacific is one of the fastest growing geographical regions and DSM is committed to supporting this growth with continuous investment in the expansion of their regional premix network and technical team that will continue to innovate with local solutions, backed up with global products and decades of extensive research.
As part of DSM’s continuing support to valued customers in the region, they hosted a technical forum on ‘Broiler Performance and Uniformity’ a day before VIV. It was well attended with about 150 participants and received good feedback from attendees. Forum topics were integrated management approach to improve broiler breeder performance (Prof.J. Brake), early broiler nutrition (Dr. P.Langhout), vitelline membrane and antioxidants in eggs (Dr. F. Cisneros), maximizing amino acid utilization from feed ingredients (Dr. R. Perez) and effect of protease on amino acid digestibility of regional feed ingredients (Dr. S. Bootwalla).
At VIV Asia, DSM showcased the theme ‘Innovation with Global Products and Local Solutions’. With the unique diversity of Asia Pacific region, DSM believes that innovating should be done with diversity in mind. There is no ‘one size fits all’ solution. Every market needs local solutions that will meet their unique requirements and DSM is uniquely placed to do just that, being the only ‘backwards-integrated’animal nutrition company in the world today.Demonstrations of these global products and local solutions were one of the highlights at the DSM Booth such as the 3D demonstration of the enzyme mode of action, iCheck demonstration and egg survey.
Equipped with their broad enzyme product range (RONOZYME®), DSM is now focusing on developing enzyme solutions catering to the local needs with particular focus on raw material usage, hence, substrates present for the enzymes to act upon in monogastrics and warm water aquaculture. RONOZYME® VAX is a very good example of such solution. It was developed for South Asia with special consideration of the broad range of raw materials used in this region. Meanwhile, RONOZYME® ProAct, besides the improvement of feed costs, proved to be a vital contributor of solutions for some issues like gut health, poor litter quality and welfare issues (i.e. footpad dermatitis, hock burns, cellulitis, etc). RONOZYME®HiPhos with the release of myo-inositol and its extra phosphoric effects also plays anessential role for all life stages in poultry and swine.
Another good example of DSM local solutions is the bright yolk concept developed in Australia. Bright Yolk is a solution that seeks to improve egg quality as end product quality remains at the forefront of DSM activities and they continue to look for solutions to cover the consumer needs on this front.
MaxiChick™, DSM’s patented solution to boost the production of breeder flocks,is the world’s first proprietary blend of vitamin D metabolite and antioxidants designed to give the best to both parental breeders and their offspring –more quality chicks per housed hen!
For DSM, innovating with global products and local solutions is not just limited to poultry.Across species, young animals require specific and tailored nutritional support as they are introduced to new diets and progress through critical early growth stages. In swine, a research conducted in 2013 has indicated that newly weaned pigs fed diets containing Rovimix Hy•D® had significantly higher numbers of immune cells, as well as increased viability and phagocytic activity within those cells. In ruminants, feeding eubiotics to young calves has been shown to reduce incidences of digestive upsets, especially diarrhea from E.Coli infections.
With the world’s population continuing to expand and demand for seafood increasing,commercial aquaculture is the only way that the global requirement for seafood can be met.As such, aqua is an important species in DSM’s portfolio. Thus, DSM strives to progressively develop their aquaculture solution portfolio to help optimize improvement in aqua performance, sustainability, health, product quality and profitability.
With decades of experience and extensive tradition of ground-breaking innovation, DSM Nutritional Products continuously develop solutions that make for feed efficient, costefficient and environmentally efficient animal production. Their safe, sustainable and reliable products and services help to deliver higher productivity in combination with reduced environmental impact. That’s good for animals, good for producers, and good for the consumers too.
