The Minnesota-based company recently announced the launch of PMI Nutritional Additives, which it said will offer products designed to improve animal performance in nutrient utilization or gut health.
The business is set to work with “feed nutritionists, manufacturers, veterinarians and producers” who are trying to improve performance through their livestock feed, reported Land O'Lakes.
Several products have already been made available for market, addressing the swine, poultry, dairy and beef cattle industries. The development of additional treatments are in progress.
