Animal health and nutrition company Alltech invited producers to view its latest developments in nutritional technology at the 2013 ILDEX Indonesia. The company showcased its investments in aqua, algae, nutrigenomics and its renewed focus on mycotoxin and mineral management.
"This year Alltech is focusing on the idea of a 'Pathway to Profit,' exploring solutions that will reduce feed costs while at the same time, increase performance and profitability," said Matthew Smith, director of Asia Pacific for Alltech.
Alltech provided an interactive display, technical talks from experts, games and quizzes at the international livestock and dairy exposition. Technical advisors delivered presentations, answered questions and discussed Alltech solutions with attendees. ILDEX Indonesia also gave the company an opportunity to launch the Asia Pacific Mycotoxin Management Program, a program that the company says is "revolutionizing the mycotoxin management battlefield."
Alltech speakers addressed topics in several ILDEX sponsored sessions. Dr. Nattawadee Jantasila, technical support for the Alltech Asia Pacific Mycotoxin Management Team, presented "The Three Pronged Approach to Mycotoxin Management." Aziz Sacranie, technical director of poultry for Alltech, discussed "Managing Layer Body Weight for Maximum Performance."
The company recognized two Indonesia students who won local and regional awards in the Alltech Young Scientist Award (AYS) global education support program. Alltech created AYS to promote research and discover talent among university students from around the world. Students are encouraged to join the company in the search for natural solutions in animal production and gain experience from the company.
Khoerotun Nisa from Agricultural University won second place for the Asia-Pacific undergraduate competition and first place for Indonesia undergraduate competition. Moh Fikri Pomalingo from Hasanuddin University took second place in the Indonesia undergraduate competition.
"We were delighted to welcome so many customers, partners, Alltech friends at our booth at ILDEX Indonesia. Our ultimate objective is to work together with every stakeholder of our industry by being relevant and adding value," said Hery Santoso, Alltech Indonesia business development manager.
