What is premix and why does it matter?
When it comes right down to it, anyone can mix some raw ingredients, package them and call this a product. So, how can feed be differentiated? What makes one feed better than another, and why might animals perform so much better on one product versus another? One of the things that sets feed products apart, influences animal performance, and addresses the specific nutritional needs of those animals is the premix used to create a finished feed product. All premixes are not created equal; the right premix will have a specific blend of vitamins, minerals, trace elements and nutritional additives.
Premixes make up a small percentage of the formulation but have the potential to make a big difference in the efficacy of a feed. Micro premixes are mixed into the feed between 0.2 and 2% of the total mix, while macro premixes make up between 2% to 8% of the mix (including also macro-elements, salts, buffer and amino acids). Premixes provide a powerful component of the feed that ensures balanced, correct nutrition and value-added ingredients. Creating this unique blend that is tailor-made to fit what the animals require and what our customers demand, is one of the things Wisium does best.
How can premixes be customized?
The Wisium premixes are formulated to specifically answer the nutritional needs of the animals being fed. These products are tailored according to local conditions and consider things like raw materials, sanitary conditions, specific targets, etc. The formulation approach and nutrition solutions are customized to meet the needs of each customer depending on their goals, species, and operating practices.
How can premixes add value?
The premix package in any feed delivers a variety of things depending on the type of animal being fed and end goals for the producer. Based on these factors, ingredients in a premix can differ greatly from one product to another. No matter what species or specifics the feed is designed for, the premix offers a vehicle to bring added value to the entire ration in an effective and efficient way. The inclusion of chelated minerals, the addition of mycotoxin binders, or the use of specific flavorings are just a few examples of ways premix can add value to the feed and create a better overall product. Premixes offer nutrition that is delivered in a precise and correct way to better serve the animals and help them get the most out of their feed.
