Danisco Animal Nutrition Presents Advanced Phytase and Natural Betaine Solutions to Pork Industry

Producers hit by the challenges that diseases such as PEDv cause, e.g. dehydration and energy loss, or even just the issues faced in weaning, can also benefit greatly from the hydrating and gut support benefits of the company’s Betafin® natural betaine, which will also be showcased at World Pork. Through its osmolytic effects, natural betaine helps to maintain water in cells and reduces the maintenance energy requirements of pigs. This can also lead to benefits for reproductive performance in sows, and a reduction in time to market for grower-finisher pigs. These effects are particularly beneficial at times of dietary energy stress as a result of reduced feed intakes, such as during the hot, summer months. An extra piglet per sow and shorter rebreeding intervals gives Betafin® natural betaine a high return on investment at a time when weaned pig value is rising fast.

Sustainability Linked to Responsible Governance

Citizens who expect their governments to lead on sustainability have been badly disappointed in recent years. From largely ineffectual international climate conferences to the failure to pass meaningful U.S. climate legislation, governments' progress has often been lackluster. Leadership has come from the bottom up rather than the top down. Action on climate change, species loss, inequity, and other crises is being driven by citizens', women's, and grassroots movements around the world, often in opposition to the agendas pursued by governments and big corporations.
