Dairy nutrition and management consultancy firm, Dellait, has completed the acquisition of the Nutretain forage preservation business from BritAm Nutritional Concepts, Inc.

Under the terms of the agreement, Dellait, which is headquartered in Brookings, South Dakota, in the US, becomes the owner of various silage inoculant brands as well as a hay conditioner brand.

“The acquisition of Nutretain product line is a strategic milestone in strengthening our portfolio and bringing additional value to our clients,” ​said Fernando Diaz, CEO of Dellait.

The science-based forage preservation technology synergistically combines multiple bacteria strains with high-activity enzymes to speed the fermentation process, increasing lactic acid production while improving dry matter recovery and forage quality over a broad range of crops, according to Dellait.

Mike Bettle, president of BritAm, and developer of the Nutretain line, some 25 years ago, will work at Dellait as a forage consultant and dairy nutritionist. He said Dellait's technical and marketing expertise will push the products into a much wider market, while the research side of consultancy business will keep abreast of any “new technology that might further enhance the effectiveness”​ of the inoculants.

Dellait has a team of consultants, scientists, and data analysts with specialized expertise in dairy cattle nutrition and health, milk quality, dairy farm management, and business intelligence. Its stated objective is to bring the global dairy industry to the next level, focusing on efficiency, cow welfare and environmental sustainability.
