Backed by the extensive research capabilities of BASF and Balchem Corporation, a collaborative relationship opens the door to a unique portfolio of products and technologies that improve feed hygiene, safety and overall animal performance. 

"Our alliance with Balchem helps meet the changing needs of the U.S. swine market," said Christian Nitschke, BASF regional head, Animal Nutrition North America. "We are confident that the result will improve animal health and efficiency, leading to increased profitability for the pork producer."

"BASF has helped the European swine industry by developing innovative feed solutions for more efficient and consumer-responsive pork production," notes Jonathan Griffin, Vice President, Balchem Animal Nutrition & Health. "As we look to 2017, and the changes the U.S. industry faces, we are proud to work closely with BASF to bring new feed management options to pork producers.
