Watch on demand now to learn more about commercial phytase utilization and its super high dose effect.
Phytase effectively works on phytate, an anti-nutritional factor, to liberate phosphorus (P) and mineral sources and improve feed utilization. Commercial phytase is widely used to replace MCP/DCP in monogastric feed to reduce cost. In this webinar, Professor Elijah G. Kiarie from the University of Guelph will provide an overview of the phytase application in monogastric animals. Dr. Xuerong Song from Wuhan Sunhy Biology will then talk about an animal trial conducted on the efficacy of a thermostable phytase on swine growth performance under high temperatures of feed pelleting.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
- Learn more about commercial phytase utilization and its super high dose effect.
- Discover phytase's role in feed cost reduction and sustainable farming.
