Cargill Reorganizes Animal Nutrition Unit

New business group to be called Cargill Health Technologies

Cargill Inc. is reorganizing its animal-nutrition unit to respond to a growing concern among consumers and farmers over animal health and wellness, the company said Wednesday.

According to the Star Tribune, the Minnetonka-based agribusiness is adding the word “health” to its animal-nutrition segment and is creating a new business group within it called Cargill Health Technologies that will focus on digestive health and immunology for farm animals.

The new Cargill Health Technologies business is meant to better incorporate two of Cargill’s recent acquisitions, Delacon and Diamond V.

Delacon researches and develops feed additives aimed at improving animal health and performance or reducing the environmental effect of livestock production.

Diamond V uses microbial fermentation to create feed products that work with the animal’s natural biology as a way to reduce dependence on antibiotics.
