2013 Ag Innovator of the year: Protein Resources, LLC

Soybean meal, while an excellent animal feed, still can’t be fed to a whole range of animals as soluble sugars in soybean meal are very disruptive to the digestive tract of baby pigs and carnivorous fish, in particular. That’s where Protein Resources, LLC, saw an opportunity to innovate and provide a feed ingredient that the market has been waiting for.

“We felt that the market was looking for a soy-based, high-protein feed supplement that could be used in a variety of applications such as baby pig diets, poultry, aquaculture, and possibly several other formulations,” says John Pollock, president of Protein Resources, LLC.

Nutrivance, the brand name of the product, is headquartered in Marshall, Minnesota.
