QUINCY, Ill., Sept. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Phibro announces it has improved its OmniGen-AF nutritional specialty product to optimize its mixing and handling characteristics when used in feed manufacturing systems and on-farm mixing. Phibro's team of engineering and manufacturing experts have successfully designed and implemented a new proprietary manufacturing process for OmniGen-AF, after several years of development. OmniGen-AF is well known to the global dairy industry as a research-proven product that helps support healthy immune function in dairy cows.
"It's been a long term goal of ours to improve the flow and mixing characteristics of OmniGen-AF," said Rod Isham, Phibro's Product Director for OmniGen-AF. "Our team built a unique process to create a granular product, improving followability and greatly reducing dustiness. We also went to great lengths to ensure the granular form meets our stringent product efficacy requirements through Phibro's Dynamic Quality Assurance® program and our proprietary validation testing."
"Because of the new granular form, we were able to make significant improvements to the packaging," said Isham. "We are now able to use a durable, poly-woven, water-tight bag with a paper overwrap. Our customers are very pleased with the improved, higher-quality shipping presentation. The product itself is more compressed and the overall bag size is smaller. The product fits very well on standard pallets."
OmniGen-AF in granular form is available throughout North America and in select markets in Asia, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Australia, in 25 kg bags and 1,000 kg totes.
