Varied Industries Building, Meeting Room D

Start with better nutrition – end with more returns

Better pig nutrition leads to healthier hogs and lower costs. Learn about Kent Nutrition Group’s (KNG) latest innovation for plasma-free pig starters. Dr. James Smith, Ph.D., KNG technical swine nutritionist, will share the new research findings on KNG’s new plasma-free, pig starters which help increase performance and net returns.

Help increase pig survivability with nutritional optimizers

Understanding gut health and pig performance is top-of-mind at KNG particularly as the industry moves to non-antimicrobial growth promotants. Dr. Michael Edmonds, Ph.D., KNG vice president, swine and poultry nutrition, will discuss formulas that are made with our exclusive nutritional components to create KNG’s proprietary swine formulas to help optimize the nutritional absorption in pigs’ digestive tract.

Dr. Edmonds will discuss recent research trials where KNG developed water soluble and feed supplemental formulas which have helped increase blood glucose levels under stress, elevate antioxidant levels, and stimulate a positive immune response.
