It could be argued that animal nutrition as a global industry really kicked off when the idea of selling supplements to better balance out the nutritional values of feedstuffs began. Clearly, it was a landmark development. Another transformative moment came when the industry began to refine the concept of what it meant to keep an animal health, and to better understand how the proper functionin ...

Excellent article! Creamino has recently received FDA approval for all poultry species. In addition to the performance and yield benefits seen with broilers, improvements in fertility, hatchability and rate of lay has been seen when Creamino is added to broiler breeder and layer diets.

DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM Creatine is a necessary component in energy metabolism, supplying phosphate groups to adenosine diphosphate and recycling them to adenosine triphosphate (ATP) that can be used for maintenance and growth. This creatine-ATP recycling system does not occur in all cells, only in those where there is great variability in energy demand, including muscle cells [1]. Creatine is es ...

Juarez Donzele I tend to agree. I think there is a lot of focus on reduced protein without regard for economics and performance. And in the real world, we have challenges with Eimeria and Clostridium not to mention viruses and parasites. When there are GIT challenges, having less undigested protein reach the hindgut is advantageous as there will be less ammonia produced. Ammonia increases pH and f ...

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.

Martin Smith Thanks for your comments. This is a great input and let me explain more. In practical diets for broiler breeders the methionine (M) and cysteine (C) are limited and most diets cover the minimum requirements. And flocks fed with levels of M+C that match the requirements shows egg oversize. Why? In practical diets of broiler breeders the digestible lysine is above the requirements, mean ...

Hi Ewa. Thank you for your comments and you are correct. As feed prices increase, now would be an excellent time to look at those additives that increase efficiency, ingredient bioavailability or have a sparing effect on costly ingredients such as energy or protein sources.

Dave Albin, Ph.D. Hi Dave, Interesting question...since Creamino increases muscle creatine levels allowing for direct replenishment of ADP to ATP I am not sure what effect a higher fat diet would have. Does a high fat diet have an influence on muscle glucose levels? Or would a low glucose diet lead to lower glucose levels in the muscle?
