SPACE: Nutrea Animal Nutrition wins three star Innov’Space award

French animal nutrition company Nutrea won a prestigious three-star Innov’Space award at the first day of the annual livestock show in Rennes, France.

Of the 53 awards receiving one or two stars, there were only seven that were awarded a complimentary star at the show’s exhibition party.
 
The company’s ‘Truiebox’ aims to provide farmers a density indicator at every feed delivery related to his gestating and lactating sows, based on the density of the raw materials used in each formulation and on the processing parameters of the product, e.g. milling or granulation.
 
Benefits include increased accuracy as well as improved control over the amount of feed fed to the sows. In addition, there is a practical value as each density is stated on the product label of delivery. Last but not least, better knowledge of the type of feed helps to improve financial results as well.
 
Other winners of three stars included:
 
          FAF (FAF Le Rêve: cage ventilation) – poultry
          Gallagher (Smart Power Mi: electric fencing) – cattle, sheep
          Veng System (Intelligent Canopy: a piglets pen) – pigs
          Mechineau Elevage Industrie (V5: calf feed dispenser) – feed, cattle
          AGID (ID_Parlour: Milking help) – cattle, sheep
          Acémo (Eliskool: feedstuff distribution equipment) – feed, pigs
