In the current raw material cost scenario a concept of feed efficiency is an interesting strategy. It is not only the cost of the feed formulae that matters but also how it will perform. The industry has a broad portfolio of additives focused on increasing bioavailability of fats, some aminoacids and proteins. Bioemulsifiers and aminoacids adjuvants can serve as interesting devices in this strateg ...

David Nelson Thank you so much for your comment. That's where yield prediction models (breast, leg, wing) come to play in evaluating sample partial budget for either whole or cut-up chicken. These models can be also used to evaluate feed additives from an economical standpoint as you mentioned.

Mohammad Afrouziyeh Excellent point. We are seeing evidence of this now in the U.S. market. As prices for breast meat have fallen, we are seeing less focus or emphasis on breast meat yield when formulating diets or considering feed additives.

Great topic! In addition to what people have talked about the possible strategies, I would like to add using appropriate feed formulation models to offset the effect of ingredients cost on profitability. It means that in addition to ingredients cost (mainly energy and protein cost), product price (income) should be allowed to play a role in the feed formula. This can happen by using non-linear pro ...

Mike Stahl It's my pleasure. For sure, we will implement a successful feeding system at your farm. Looking forward to that! Take care!

Mohammad Afrouziyeh i am with you Mohammad, thanks once i get my new organic layer barn up and running, and the 2 bins setup for split feeding, will surely start using your formulation spreadsheet around June

Awesome! The 2020 PSA virtual meeting went well too! Special thanks to organizers. Looking forward to it!

Great ideas! The margin of safety and stochastic programming is a way to account for nutrient variability in ingredients when you are formulating a diet. I have explained this fully in a video which is available through the following link.

Nuhad Daghir Thank you very much for your constructive feedback. I really appreciate that! Happy new year!

Very interesting presentation and most useful. I would like to make one correction however that we started looking into least cost formulation in the 1960's and early 1970's and not 1990. We even started applying linear programming to least cost formulations as early as 1968 when a computer was the size of a room. Best regards
