Phibro Animal Health Corp. announced that it has improved its OmniGen-AF nutritional specialty product to optimize its mixing and handling characteristics when used in feed manufacturing systems and on-farm mixing.
Phibro said its team of engineering and manufacturing experts have designed and implemented a proprietary new manufacturing process for the product, after several years of development. OmniGen-AF is a research-based product that helps support healthy immune function in dairy cows.
"It's been a long-term goal of ours to improve the flow and mixing characteristics of OmniGen-AF," said Rod Isham, Phibro product director for OmniGen-AF. "Our team built a unique process to create a granular product, improving followability and greatly reducing dustiness. We also went to great lengths to ensure the granular form meets our stringent product efficacy requirements through Phibro's Dynamic Quality Assurance program and our proprietary validation testing.
"Because of the new granular form, we were able to make significant improvements to the packaging," Isham added. "We are now able to use a durable, poly-woven, watertight bag with a paper overwrap. Our customers are very pleased with the improved, higher-quality shipping presentation. The product itself is more compressed, and the overall bag size is smaller. The product fits very well on standard pallets."
OmniGen-AF in granular form is available in 25 kg bags and 1,000 kg totes throughout North America and in select markets in Asia, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Australia.
