Hamlet Protein strengthens ruminant team



Hamlet Protein has appointed ruminant specialist Nicholas Anglade as category manager (ruminants) to further support the company's ambition in young animal nutrition.


With a species specialist for calves onboard, Hamlet Protein makes work of its strategy to invest in quality nutritional support for customers across the world.


Anglade graduated from Rennes National School of Agronomy and Essec Cergy Pontoise, and brings with him a wealth of experience and strong network from his career in leading international companies.


"Calf nutrition has always been my passion. I am truly excited to join Hamlet Protein and to have the opportunity to contribute to Hamlet's ambitious growth agenda," said Anglade.


Lisa Nielsen, marketing director at Hamlet Protein, said: "Hamlet Protein is investing in further strengthening our expertise across species. That will allow us to spend more time in the field with our customers and work with them on developing the best possible solutions for young animal nutrition. Nicholas' commercial and technical experience, coupled with his hands-on approach, makes him a great fit with the rest of our team."


Calf milk replacers (CMR) are traditionally based on dairy proteins, since these are considered the best source of protein a young calf can get, Hamlet Protein said. Vegetable proteins have typically been viewed as a lower quality, but not all vegetable proteins are the same.


With the HP 100 series, Hamlet Protein offers an optimised functional soy protein as a cost-efficient CMR alternative to dairy.


Hamlet Protein's specialty soy protein is highly digestible in the small intestine and has a taste that calves prefer. It eases the transition from calf milk replacers to solid feed, reducing overall feed costs.
