1 June 2018

Trouw Nutrition will demonstrate NutriOpt®, a modular precision-feeding system made up of proven components that offer the latest nutritional science data and technology, at the 2018 World Pork Expo (WPX)

St. Louis, June 1, 2018 – Trouw Nutrition, a global leader in animal nutrition, will showcase NutriOpt during WPX. Visitors can stop by the booth to attend a live demonstration of the NutriOpt precision-feeding system, which enables customers to make better business decisions, starting with a near infrared spectroscopy (NIR). The NIR machine at the booth will connect to the NutriOpt Nutritional Database, one of the largest calibration databases in the industry. The company’s team of swine experts will demonstrate the advantages and capabilities of NutriOpt at Booth J427 in the Jacobson’s Building at the 2018 World Pork Expo, the world’s largest pork industry-specific trade show, June 6-8, at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines.

“With the live NutriOpt demonstration, attendees will get the opportunity to see first-hand how quick and precise the technology is and how it could benefit their business,” said Amanda Bockhorn, Trouw Nutrition quality assurance laboratory manager. “In this demo, users will be guided through the ingredient NIR scanning process, transfer of data to the portal, and calculation of nutritional composition. Within a matter of minutes, key benefits, such as risk reduction, optimized nutrition, and improved profitability, will be demonstrated, showing how the NIR can be utilized in a way that most feed mills aren’t doing today.”

Trouw Nutrition’s near-infrared procedures are ISO certified by the Dutch Accreditation Authority.

Additionally, WPX attendees can learn about gut health and decreasing digestive stress during key production periods by lowering the pH of piglets’ drinking water with Selko® ProHydro, a synergistic blend of free and highly buffered organic acids.
