We have a larger number of specialists working daily with optimisation and improvement of nutrition and health in animal production. Our activities cover research, development, production, technical advice, sales and marketing. Our goal is to provide this knowledge to our customers and jointly optimising the production economics of the farm – our knowledge, your strength!
