Hello Lydia, Yes you are right you need to add enzyme to help the bird and pig digest most out of the feed.

Good job; the value of feed enzyme as pro-nutrient feed additive is well, perhaps better quantified by growth perfromance and mechanisticaaly so by digestibility. The ability to find and evolve the next generation of feed enzymes will be driven by understanding of target substrates and the implications to the animal nutrition. However, the gut is populated with diverse assemblage of microbiota (bi ...

Introduction It is now accepted that weaning simultaneously subjects piglets to nutritional (e.g. loss of sow´s milk), psychological (e.g. mixing and moving) and environmental (e.g. change in ambient temperature) stressors and that these and other stressors contribute to growth depression typically observed immediately after weaning.  Reducing this post-weaning growth lag is critical a ...

This is a topical area; the consumers want lean pork & breeders have been working hard to package this genetic potential. Nutrition plays a great role in realizing this potential in a profitable and sustainable manner. A challenge to nutritionists is to predict the nutrient requirements of such animals given they eat less and are sensitive to pathogen/environmental stresses. An important aspect in ...
