Evonik Animal Nutrition to display key technologies at AGRENA 2019

  • Precision Livestock Farming and Ecobiol® to be showcased
  • Egyptian market very important to business
  • Company continues two decades of support for AGRENA

Cairo, Egypt. Evonik, one of the world's leading specialty chemicals companies, will be showcasing its latest animal nutrition innovations at the International Exhibition for the Administration & Production of Poultry & Livestock (AGRENA) this month.

The company will highlight two key technologies for the livestock industry – Precision Livestock Farming and Ecobiol® - at this important regional show.

Livestock management is getting increasingly complex over time, so Evonik Animal Nutrition has developed solutions that make use of modern technologies, like sensors and software, to facilitate the process. Known as precision livestock farming (PLF), this approach goes beyond just gathering data. It combines science-based know-how with proven amino services, and innovative nutritional and health concepts. These are all embedded into specific digital solutions allowing for a better understanding of the status of the animal.

Ecobiol® is a feed additive which consists of a natural fast-growing Bacillus amyloliquefaciens CECT 5940 strain that potentially improves the overall condition of the animals and helps producers to solve quality, profitability and sustainability challenges.

“We have participated at AGRENA for the past two decades because we find it to be an excellent platform to showcase what we offer to the Egyptian Market,” said Ahmed Khater, Technical Manager GCC & MEA Gut Health Solutions at Evonik Animal Nutrition.

“The Egyptian market is very important to our business because there is an ever-growing demand on the feed industry, fueled by the rapid population growth. Evonik Animal Nutrition has shown continuous commitment to the local market since we first started selling here in the 1960s,” Khater added.

AGRENA takes place between 17th and 19th October at the Cairo International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
