Kemin Acquires Patent for Solution to ASF in Feed
New research from KSU shows promise for pathogen control product in feed and feed ingredients
Kemin Industries has acquired a U.S. patent application for a method to control African swine fever virus in feed and feed ingredients using Sal CURB Liquid Antimicrobial — a global pathogen control product manufactured by Kemin, reports the National Hog Farmer.
New data generated by Kansas State University and Megan Niederwerder demonstrate that Sal CURB effectively inactivates ASF virus in livestock feed.
Sal CURB is an antimicrobial solution known to maintain the Salmonella-negative status of complete feeds and feed ingredients for up to 21 days, in addition to controlling mold. By using a blended solution of formaldehyde and propionic acid, known to eliminate mold and pathogens, Sal CURB plays an important role in reducing biosecurity risks.
