Precision nutrition: Formulating feed for growth, profit

Additional research is needed to improve how nutrients are delivered during crucial stages in an animal's life cycle when an animal is facing disease or environmental challenges and in antibiotic-free systems. (Jevtic | iStockPhoto.com)

Enzymes and synthetic amino acid use are improving swine and poultry diet formulations, but questions remain on how to improve precision development and feed delivery.

Precision feeding lets producers provide feed with the right nutritional content and in the necessary amount, said Candido Pomar, a senior research scientist with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. His research in swine production and precision nutrition includes the development and use of mathematical modeling and precision feeding and farming systems.
