While vegetable protein sources often add extra fibers to the feed in the form of non-starch polysaccharides (NSPs), these NSPs often have anti-nutritional effects with a detrimental impact on digestion and performance. However, this effect can be perfectly reverted using adequate enzymes in the feed, so-called NSPases. The efficacy of NSPases on the break-down of soluble and insoluble fibers – and related animal performance – depends on their type of action, their concentration in the enzyme concept and the dosage of this concept in the diet.
The shift towards an increasing amount of protein of vegetable origin in animal feed comes at a cost: reduced protein digestibility, lower performance and higher feed conversion. AVEVE Biochem has developed enzyme supplements that help overcome this hurdle and improve economics by increasing protein digestibility.
A foot pad dermatitis and hock burn lesion is a common problem associated with poor litter management. Broilers suffering from pain by contact dermatitis will have a negative impact on animal performance. This condition indicates a serious problem in animal welfare and can lead to food safety concerns. Damaged feet and legs, carcass condemnation and downgrades, will finally cause a loss of business opportunities and a huge impact on profits.

With more than a century of history behind it, AVEVE Group has reached a new milestone. AVEVE Group is now known under a new umbrella name: ‘Arvesta, experts in the field.’
Technical support is one of our strengths. Last week we welcomed a group from Morocco at our HQ for a training to fully utilize the power of AveMix®. After three days of capturing lots of information, we enjoyed a short visit to Brussels with Manneken Pis and the statue of Jacques Brel as highlights of the day.
