Bayer Animal Health and Nutreco are combining their efforts to improve the nutritional and health performance of farm animals.

The companies have signed a global research and development collaboration agreement. Their first project together will be to come up with innovative solutions for gastrointestinal health in dairy and beef cattle.

“The agreement further demonstrates our strong commitment to drive innovation in the farm animal space,” says Douglas Hutchens, DVM, PhD, Bayer’s head of drug discovery, external innovation and chief veterinary officer. “Joining forces with Nutreco will increase our innovative capabilities and leverage the development of new solutions for our customers. We look forward to furthering farm animal health and well-being, and contributing to the sustainable development of the dairy and beef cattle industry.”

The project will be run by Trouw Nutrition.

“We’re excited to be partnering with a company like Bayer to bring real breakthroughs in this area,” says Trouw Nutrition innovation director, Saskia Korink. “By pooling our know-how and capabilities, we can truly make significant steps forward and support farmers in growing their business in a sustainable way with animal well-being as a priority.”
