NSPases help improve digestion for optimal performance

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.

Improve protein digestibility

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.

How footpad lesions impact your business

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.

The true multi-enzyme combination reduces feed cost

In this article Olivier Maigret refers to the feed for young piglets. Post weaning is a critical transition period for young piglets and the way this phase is handled will tremendously impact the growth of the future pigs. Trail results show that using the right combination of enzymes targeting specific raw materials allows cost saving and flexibility in feed formulation, while keeping similar nutrient and energy values.

Optimal Gut and Survival in AGP-Free Broilers

Optimal Gut and Survival in AGP-Free Broilers

The key to optimal animal production is a balanced gut. Performance pressure renders broilers vulnerable to infectious and/or non-infectious triggers. Present study reports on the combined effect of medium-chain glycerides (MCG) and phytogenics.

In this paper Kirsten De Keyser refers to a broiler field case where birds were fed AGP-free feed added with the concept of MCG plus phytogenics at different dosage rates for optimal gut health control.
