ildex 2018 raw material imports vietnam antibiotics livestock

With ever increasing prices in raw materials and feed, and the looming ban on antibiotics used as growth promotors, feed formulation and benefits of aromatic plant extracts are potential ways forward in a difficult livestock context. These issues will be much discussed during ILDEX VIETNAM 2018. Three of the TECHNA group’s 5 trades will be featured at this event: feed expertise, animal specialties and aquaculture.

ILDEX VIETNAM 2018, an international platform for pooling livestock expertise

Livestock and aquaculture are at a key-stage of development in Vietnam. In the last 6 months of 2017, gross domestic product (GDP) is estimated to have increased by more than 6% compared to the same period last year, while the livestock and aquaculture sector will start rising again after a difficult period for farmers and producers. Advanced technologies have been applied in the development of breeding stocks, and farm management and production methods are currently being upgraded to improve meat quality.

ILDEX VIETNAM 2018 aims to enable local Vietnamese enterprises to pool knowledge and expertise with livestock development experts from other countries. This event will take place from 14th to 16th of March 2018 in Ho-Chi-Minh-City, Vietnam. The TECHNA group will be present through its affiliate TECHNA NUTRITION VIETNAM

According to StoxPlus Research 55% of main materials for producing animal feed is imported from other countries.

Vietnam imported 15.5 million tons of feed materials worth about US$3.39 billion.

Raw materials are imported from countries with developed agricultural industry.

In addition, as a result from high cost of inputs, the price of Vietnam animal feed is 20% higher than other countries in the ASEAN region.

With all this in mind, TECHNA NUTRITION VIETNAM experts will give a conference on improving profitability through raw material in Vietnam. This conference will be held on 14th March, room 3 at 3:15 pm.

Feed formulation, a lever to optimize feed costs in a demedication context

ILDEX VIETNAM 2018 will also be the opportunity for TECHNA NUTRITION VIETNAM to present its solutions to improve production costs. The looming ban on antibiotics in livestock makes it necessary for Vietnamese farmers to work differently and to learn the benefits of feed formulation no matter the production context. TECHNA NUTRITION VIETNAM puts forward its optimization products for livestock farming and aquaculture:

  • Blackbox®: An efficient tool which calculates raw material nutritional values and matrix in order to optimize raw material use.
  • Reganol® for piglets: Enhances digestive security of piglet feed at weaning and improves piglet growth performance.
  • Aviance® for poultry: Designed to stimulate digestive functions, help achieve a perfect balance of intestinal flora, contribute to the increase of the intestinal absorption surface.
  • Aquaviance® for aquaculture: Blends aromatic plant extracts with protected essential oils and prebiotics (fructo-oligosaccharides), to stimulate digestive functions, contribute to a good balance of intestinal flora in order to improve fish and shrimp performance.
  • Taritral for sows: Sustains sows and female ruminants at dry-off. This “formula” aims to enhance sows’ productivity by limiting the interval between two litters.

Should you want more information, you are kindly invited to attend our conference on 14th March, room 3 at 3:15 pm.

And during ILDEX VIETNAM 2018, don’t hesitate to drop by our booth DE 10, French Pavilion from 14th to 16th of March 2018!
