Adisseo and Masan Nutri-Science further commit to Vietnam sow production




From April 17 to May 9 around Vietnam, Adisseo joined Masan Nutri-Science scientific seminars for the launch of their new product Bio-Zeem Mama+.


The companies were involved in eight seminars around Vietnam with a full attendance of more than 500 farmers per session.


During the lactating period, sows face various stresses which directly impact their performance and progeny. The seminars enlightened farmers' knowledge on how to identify root causes in poor sow productivity in Vietnam, including a lack of right and sufficient nutritional feeding programmes during the lactating period.


Masan recommended Bio-Zeem Mama+, an association of essential ingredients to maximise sow productivity. In this nutritional solution, Selisseo®, as the "third generation" of selenium and awarded in a world innovation contest, is a key component. As an antioxidant, Selisseo provides sows high capability to fight oxidative stress, resulting in better fertility.


Farmers were also briefed on the factors affecting sows during lactation, for e.g. loss of weight, decreased fertility, low number of piglets, weight of piglets, slow return to estrus, and how the new formula is efficient to limit the consequences of these issues. Masan used farm trials to highlight the benefits of the new product.


To conclude, Masan demonstrated its wish to increase the production of the sows by two piglets per sow per year and to support local market growth through its antibiotic-free nutritional solution Bio-Zeem Mama+.
