Diamond V opens new layer research facility

DIAMOND V recently celebrated the ribbon-cutting ceremony and opening of the new Diamond V Layer Research Unit in the Animal Science Learning Center of Kasetsart University in Nakhon Pathom, Thailand.

"This new Diamond V Layer Research Unit increases our ability to conduct research in a tropical environment with poultry indigenous to Southeast Asia for the benefit of area poultry producers. The unit's sponsorship also expands our ability to conduct broiler and swine research in other units in the Animal Science Learning Center for the betterment of Asian producers," Dr. Mark Kujawa, vice president of international business development at Diamond V, said.

The research unit is located approximately 90 km west of Bangkok, Thailand, and sits next to new units for layer, broiler, swine and cattle research, a biogas unit, feed mill and laboratory and office space in the expansive Animal Science Learning Center.

Part of the university's department of animal science on the Kamphaeng Saen campus, the center provides training for undergraduate and graduate students in livestock production under tropical conditions.

Diamond V is a leading global supplier of microbial fermentation products used to optimize digestive function and nutrition key to animal and aqua health, productivity, efficiency and profitability.
