Fast results from EWOS RAPID
What happened when a leading Norwegian farming company trialed EWOS RAPID
We continue to push the envelope in industry leading-products. A Norwegian customer trial of EWOS RAPID feed took place between August 2014 and early 2015, with five pens fed on EWOS RAPID and five on a standard EWOS grower diet – clearly demonstrating the benefits of this innovative product compared with a high-quality but conventional alternative.
Results were conclusive, showing that EWOS RAPID – the first feed developed using Cargill’s COMPASS methodology – delivers higher growth and lower feed conversion. The control group delivered very good outcomes, but the trial group did substantially better. EWOS RAPID resulted in a large positive difference in growth (controlled for variation in fish weight) and a significantly lower EFI (feed conversion controlled for variation in fish weight).
Real-world commercial results also confirmed fewer weeks at sea, with a shorter life cycle and larger fish. In fact, the EWOS RAPID-fed pens were ready for harvesting five to seven weeks earlier than those fed a standard diet. This product is now being made available in Scotland.
