Animal nutrition specialist and premix manufacturer, Premier Nutrition, has strengthened its pig team with the appointment of Sam Wootton as research co-ordinator.
Mr Wootton, who originally embarked on a role at Premier in 2018 as a cross-species support nutritionist, is set to support farmers, feed compounders and the wider industry with nutritional expertise and the latest research updates.
He will be managing work at Premier’s four fully replicated UK trials facilities, weighing pigs, and collating data to take away and analyse.
“We also plan to run a range of different trials, based on improving sustainability, testing out options for reducing soya use, producing more from less, and considering the use of more sustainable raw ingredients,” commented Mr Wootton.
“I hope the results will not only help producers improve their own performance, but in the long term make a difference to the bigger picture of the pig industry.”
