During IPPE 2022 in Atlanta, Georgia, Sarah Muirhead from Feedstuffs 365 spoke with Amlan leadership about global poultry production trends and the background of Amlan’s natural mineral-based products. During the discussion, Dan Jaffee, President and CEO, Oil-Dri Corporation of America and President and General Manager of Amlan International, described the history of Amlan and the origin of the mineral that is the core of Amlan products.
Other discussion topics included global trends Fred Kao, VP of Global Sales, is observing in the poultry industry. Fred spoke about the increase in antibiotic-free poultry production in Brazil as producers adjust to new EU export requirements and the impact that African Swine Fever has had on poultry product demand in Asia.
Dr. Wade Robey, VP Global Marketing and Product Development, also detailed the benefits of two new Amlan products that were launched at IPPE (International products, not for sale in the US). One product is intended for application in antibiotic-free broiler production when pathogens are decreasing bird performance or when producers are trying to reduce pathogen levels entering the processing plant (NeutraPath®), and the other is a natural alternative to anticoccidial drugs and vaccines (Phylox®) for full time use or in a shuttle program when resistance to traditional coccidiostats is a concern. Both products also have excellent application potential in broiler breeders which are often challenged with coccidiosis and which can be very sensitive to mycotoxins and bacterial pathogens during grow-out and egg production.
