Watch on demand now to learn the importance of FCR and nitrogen efficiency in the current state of the industry.
There is looming uncertainty caused by multiple production issues currently impacting the poultry industry. Ingredient shortages and limited access to minerals is leading to the price increase of overall animal feed formulations and ultimately the final product going to consumers. Price increases are creating a dilemma for poultry nutritionists and purchasers on what feedstocks to keep and what to replace in animal diets across the globe. Increased feed costs require additional attention on formulations to improve feed conversion ratio (FCR), nitrogen absorption/retention, understanding the important role of phosphates, mineral absorption, full replacement benefits, as well as sustainable practices. With so many changing pieces, feed formulation requires more caution — especially when multiple factors are beyond your control.
The presentation will be given by Dr. Mike Kidd, Professor, serves the (DREX)-Director Experiment Station as Professor, Poultry nutrition at the University of Arkansas, Kyle Venter, PhD, Innovation manager at Chemuniqué Pty, and Dr. Leonardo Linares, Poultry Nutritionist at Zinpro Global Technical Services.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
- The importance of FCR and nitrogen efficiency in the current state of the industry.
- The role of phosphates in poultry formulations.
- How to partner with your supplier to face the feed formulation dilemma.
This webinar is sponsored by Zinpro and presented by Feed Strategy.
