  • Nutritional and nutrient packages to support enhanced feed efficiency. New product designs are based on global standards that can be leveraged to create localized feeding programs. Nutrient packages are also available to support customers’ unique needs around genetics, gender and ractopamine.
  • Significant enhancements to Cargill’s MAX system help customers make better nutrition decisions faster. The system updates contain a number of new features including updated lean gain approach, immunocastration guidelines, liquid feeding, fat quality and intake enhancements.
  • Enzyme best management practices to support increased efficiency for the growing hog.

The new finisher nutrition program will roll out regionally over the next year.
