With evolving zootechnical performance and high-density housing, farm animals are facing ever-greater challenges, which make them sensitive to the slightest disturbance. Controlling animals’ environment is a priority to ensure their health and welfare.
Moisture is the single most important factor in determining if, and how rapidly, molds will grow in feeds. Reducing the moisture content in feeds will reduce the incidence of pathogenic bacteria and molds which can lead to mycotoxin contamination. Worldwide, more than 25% of harvested cereal grains are contaminated with mycotoxins significantly affecting eco-nomical performance on farms. Decreased milk yield, low-feed intake and slow growth can be primary symptoms but are often subclinical, making the detection of mycotoxins difficult. However, a loss in productivity for no obvious reason, as well as more specific symptoms (digestive disorders, reproduction problems, ketosis, displaced abomasums and rectal prolapse) can also be caused by mycotoxin contamination in the feed. Olmix meets this challenge with the production of moisture adsorbing feed ingredients, developed from a unique technology. The products Algonite™ and Algonite-G™ effectively re-duce the opportunity for secondary metabolites to form and therefore produce a safer feed.

Feed efficiency, or how to maximize the benefits of ingested feed, is a hot topic in animal production. Olmix products help improve feed conversion by protecting the organs necessary to digestive health and improving digestive efficiency.
Stressful periods (transport, vaccination, weaning, etc.), weaken animals’ immune system, making them more vulnerable to pathogens present in the environment. Olmix has developed a specific range of products to strengthen animals’ natural defenses before and during critical times, reducing the impact of stress on zootechnical performance.
Digestive disorders undermine the performance of young animals, damaging their digestive system and delaying their growth throughout the entire lifecycle. In the end, animals with digestive problems have less efficient digestion. Olmix offers solutions to help young animals prepare their digestive system for different circumstances.
