Reduced crude protein in pig diets cut nitrogen emissions

Utilizing a sustainable protein sources can have both economic and environmental benefits

Concerns about sustainable soy and a lack of protein in the future has moved the agricultural agenda in recent years. Reducing dietary crude protein levels without balancing the nutritional requirements of the pig can have a detrimental impact on performance. A solution with the ability to reduce the quantity of soy required in pig finisher diets by 80 kilograms/ton (kg/t) of feed — while improving performance and costs — has been tested with promising results.
