Hamlet Protein strengthens ruminant team
Hamlet Protein, global producer of specialty ingredients for young animal nutrition, announced the hiring of ruminant specialist Nicholas Anglade to further support the company’s ambition in young calf nutrition. Adding another species specialist, the company makes work of its strategy to invest in best-in-class nutritional support for customers across the world.
Calf milk replacers (CMR) are traditionally based on dairy proteins, since these are considered the best source of protein a young calf can get. Vegetable proteins have typically been viewed as a lower quality, but not all vegetable proteins are the same. With the HP 100 series, Hamlet Protein offers an optimised functional soy protein as a cost-efficient alternative to dairy.
Nicholas Anglade, French citizen, graduated from Rennes National School of Agronomy and Essec Cargy Pontoise, brings with him a wealth of experience and strong network from his career in leading international companies. “Calf nutrition has always been my passion. I am truly excited to join Hamlet Protein and have the opportunity to contribute to its ambitious growth agenda,” stated Mr. Anglade.
Hamlet Protein’s specialty soy protein is highly digestible in the small intestine and has a taste that calves prefer. It eases the move from calf milk replacers to solid feed – reducing feed costs overall.
Lisa Nielsen, Marketing Director at Hamlet Protein commented: “Hamlet Protein is investing in further strengthening its expertise across species. That will allow us to spend more time in the field with our customers and work with them on developing the best possible solutions for young animal nutrition. Nicholas’ commercial and technical experience, coupled with his hands on approach, makes him a great fit with the rest of our team.”
