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.

The use of precision nutrition practices in swine and poultry production allows producers to reduce nutrient waste and feed cost while addressing environmental and production challenges.
