Riverina announced their partnership with ProAgni® in 2020, joining forces with an Australian agriculture biotech business.
ProAgni® specialises in producing antibiotic-free and methane-reducing livestock feeds and supplements Australia-wide.
National Australian Small Business Champion Award winners, ProAgni, have made significant leaps in the design, research and development of Australia’s first antibiotic and ionophore-free ruminant feeds and supplements. These feed formulations promote animal health while allowing producers to rely less on antibiotics and growth promoters, as well as utilising feed more efficiently.
Riverina customers may benefit greatly from ProAgni’s successfully trialled and tested products, proven to improve animal performance by 20%+ through better feed conversion - an improvement which increases profitability. Riverina and ProAgni are excited to offer customers a range of products designed to optimise livestock performance.
Protect C is a pellet-style feed which works with cereal grain to provide cattle essential nutrients free of antibiotics, including ionophores. Protect S is specifically formulated for sheep, and both products are available as a finished feed or a concentrated version. These feeds aim to increase growth rates and decrease time required to reach market specifications.
"If you didn’t have to use antibiotics, why would you?"
In 2021, ProAgni were ranked the 6th most innovative company in the Asia-Pacific region by Fast Company Magazine. They also took home gold at the 2020 Edison Awards in Agricultural Innovation. Their studies are backed by the University of New England, ensuring quality feed is developed through the use of their patent pending technology. Their products contain vitamins, trace elements, sulphur containing amino acids, probiotic extracts, and plant-based bio actives.
By offering high-quality, sustainable products, it’s no surprise that ProAgni are also leading the way in providing positive environmental and economic outcomes for producers. They’re committed to addressing key sustainability issues through promises to reduce emissions, ensure food security, and contribute to economic growth.
Their strong stance on ethical and sustainable animal production is backed by their products’ ground-breaking ability to accelerate the removal of ingested antibiotics and decrease agricultural contributions to the emergence of drug-resistant bacteria in humans.
Riverina are excited to offer their customers ProAgni’s state-of-the-art cattle and sheep supplementary feeds and encourage producers to consider their environmental and economic impact.
