Amlan International to Showcase Natural Mineral Technology at International Production and Processing Expo (IPPE)

CHICAGO, Jan. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Amlan® International, the animal health business of Oil-Dri® Corporation of America, is pleased to announce its participation in the International Production and Processing Expo (IPPE) January 24-26, 2023, in Atlanta, GA. Attendees will learn more about the latest in feed technology for animal protein producers that optimize gut health through three exciting TECHTalks, a new product showcase featuring Phylox®, and two poster presentations during the International Poultry Scientific Forum (IPSF). Amlan is also proud to be the exclusive sponsor of the IPPE Media Center. Amlan looks forward to welcoming a global audience of animal production professionals and sharing more about its range of products with attendees, media and other exhibitors at its booth, B5453.

Last year at IPPE, Amlan expanded its product portfolio with the launch of Phylox (available in select international markets). Phylox is a research-backed, natural alternative to anticoccidial drugs that supports gut health naturally thus improving productivity and, in turn, driving producers’ profits. This year, Phylox will be highlighted during the expo’s new product showcase. Attendees can watch a video presentation to learn more about the company’s latest innovation.

“We look forward to speaking with producers about how Phylox, a bioactive blend of antiprotozoal phytochemicals with multiple modes of action, decreases the negative production and health effects of coccidiosis,” said Dr. Wade Robey, Vice President of Agriculture, Oil-Dri, and President, Amlan International. “Phylox is natural and can be used in “no antibiotics ever” (NAE) programs, has no withdrawal requirements, and can be fed in combination with anticoccidial vaccines preventing disease breakthrough.”

“We are excited about the success of our North American portfolio, which includes Sorbiam™ and Enterotec™. The industry reaction to these products created to optimize animal gut health has been tremendous,” according to Heath Wessels, Vice President of Sales, The Americas. “Working with our key customers, our products continue to demonstrate the efficacy of our mineral-based feed additives.”
