Diamond V celebrated the ribbon cutting and opening ceremony for the new Diamond V Layer Research Unit in the Animal Science Learning Center of the Department of Animal Science on the Kamphaeng Saen Campus of Kasetsart University in Nakhon Pathom, Thailand. Diamond V is the world's leading supplier of microbial fermentation products used to optimize digestive function and nutrition key to animal and aqua health, productivity, efficiency and profitability.
"This facility continues the well-established dedication of Diamond V to conducting high-quality research whose significant insights can advance the operations of livestock producers," said Mark Kujawa, Ph.D., vice president of international business development at Diamond V.
"This new Diamond V Layer Research Unit increases our ability to conduct research in a tropical environment with poultry indigenous to southeast Asia for the benefit of area poultry producers. The unit's sponsorship also expands our ability to conduct broiler and swine research in other units in the Animal Science Learning Center for the betterment of Asian producers," said Kujawa.
The Diamond V Layer Research Unit is located approximately 90 kilometers west of Bangkok. It sits next to new units for layer, broiler, swine and cattle research; a biogas unit; feed mill; laboratory and office in the expansive Animal Science Learning Center.
The center provides training for undergraduate and graduate students in livestock production under tropical conditions. It recognizes that trends in livestock production are directly influenced by changes in global economic, political, climate and consumer demands. Good training and preparation are seen as needed to establish a strong and sustainable livestock industry.
