ADM ANIMAL NUTRITION APP
The new MycoLogic Feed Manager app from ADM Animal Nutrition is designed to help the company’s feed sales representatives assess current feeding programs for their farmer-customers and identify on-farm challenges unique to specific customers. For instance, the app could potentially help farmers determine the level of naturally occurring toxins ingested by livestock in a particular region. The assessment begins with a brief in-app questionnaire, which representatives walk through with their customers one on one. Learn more online at admanimalnutrition.com, or call 217-222-7100.
