Diamond V, a leading supplier of microbial fermentation products for animal health, recently celebrated the opening of its Layer Research Unit in the Animal Science Learning Center of the Department of Animal Science of Kasetsart University in Nakhon Pathom, Thailand.

 

The Diamond V Layer Research Unit is located on the Kamphaeng Saen Campus of Kasetsart University in Nakhon Pathom, approximately 90 km west of Bangkok, Thailand. It sits next to new units for layer, broiler, swine and cattle research, a biogas unit, feed mill, laboratory and office in the expansive Animal Science Learning Center.

 

The Center provides training for undergraduate and graduate students in livestock production under tropical conditions.  It recognizes that trends in livestock production are directly influenced by changes in global economic, political, climate and consumer demands.

 

"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," says Dr Mark Kujawa, vice president of international business development at Diamond V.

 

"This facility continues the well-established dedication of Diamond V to conducting high-quality research whose significant insights can advance the operations of livestock producers," says Dr Kujawa.
