During the event Novus President and CEO François Fraudeau lauded the 10-member staff at Green Acres for their outstanding contributions to the animal agriculture industry.

“It is through your efforts that Novus is a global leader in methionine and we’ve been able to expand our specialty product portfolio to include alternatives to antibiotics, chelated trace minerals, enzymes, feed quality and preservation solutions and pigmentation solutions,” he said. “Our ability to share the efficacy of these products and respond quickly to customer needs through these products allows us to be a customer-centric company. Novus can provide excellent customer service and valuable products because of your commitment and dedication.”

“We can perform a number of research trials simultaneously and within weeks or a few months of each other,” Hampton said. “If we were working with an outside research facility we’d have to operate within their schedule and adhere to their guidelines, which may not address all the parameters of the hypothesis we’re hoping to confirm. Green Acres allows us the ability to take a customer challenge or a new industry regulation and almost immediately begin working toward a solution.”

The 95-acre farm conducts 40-50 research studies a year. These trials range in subject matter and explore topics like food safety, antibiotic-free production and optimizing animal performance. Novus’s team of in-house experts perform rigorous analysis of the study results that is used to help Novus customers achieve their production goals. The results are often presented in scientific journals, industry publications and at conferences, summits and symposiums held around the world so industry professionals can learn from the knowledge gained through the research.
