Ensuring food supply to a growing world population

The world population is projected to increase by almost one billion people within the next twelve years. It is said to reach 8.1 billion in 2025, 9.6 billion in 2050 and 10.9 billion by 2100.  We need to implement advanced technology to improve efficiency and improve the food supply. In 1940 one US farmer fed 19 people, this increased to 26 people in 1960, and currently, one farmer feeds 155 people worldwide.

Salbutamate 10% for performance enhancement in cattle, sheep and pigs

Salbutamate 10% is a type 2 beta-agonist that greatly improves production efficiency and economical production of lean protein.

Salbutamate 10% has been used successfully in South Africa in cattle and sheep feedlots since 2014 and 2017, respectively.

To add to the many benefits of Salbutamate 10%, it also has no negative effect on meat quality. Thus it is a very desirable product for producing sustainable meat of the highest quality.

The short half-life of the Salbutamate 10% also makes this the safest beta-agonist in its class.
