The majority of pig and poultry diets are composed of about 70% maize or wheat, 20% soybean meal or other similar protein sources, and 10% micro-ingredients.

IN BROILER BIRDS,
PROTEASES FOR PROTEIN DIGESTION,
PHYTASE FOR PHOSPHOROU AVIALABILITY,
CARBOHADRASE FOR STARCCH DIGESTION,
(AMYLASE)
NSP ASES FOR NSP DEGRADATION,
(Beta MANNANASE,XYLANASE )
LIPASES FOR BETTER FAT DIGESTION,
ARE RECOMMENDED AND BEING USED IN THE BROILER DIET.
CAN GENETICS BE HELPFUL TO IMPROVE THE SITUATION IN THIS MATTER?
I mean ,through genetics,genetic engineering , can bird’s physiology be improved to produce more endogenous enzymes to digest,metabolize,and assimilate these nutrients better by bird itself? Reducing its dependency on exogenous enzymes.
