“Poultry producers worldwide lose US $6 billion annually due to clinical and sub-clinical disease in their flocks,” says Flemming Mahs, president of Amlan International, a Nevada corporation. “We’re pleased to host these leading animal health experts for an in-depth look at best production practices, natural feed additive programs and pioneering innovation that can target virulence factors to enhance intestinal health and improve efficiency.”

Varium™ is one of the natural feed additives in Amlan’s portfolio of products that reduces the level of pathogenic challenges in the gut, strengthens the functions of the intestinal barrier and supports a healthy immune function. Over the last four years, the product has gained traction internationally as it has been trialed and adopted on commercial farms across Latin America and Asia.

VIV Asia is a biennial international feed-to-food trade event that covers all species and every part of the animal protein value chain. At the last conference in 2017, producers, processors and industry executives from more than 120 countries attended to discover the latest technological advancements in all aspects of animal protein production.
