Evonik Animal Nutrition Species


Poultry, swine, RUMINANTS and aquaculture   

The use of amino acids significantly improves the diets of different species, including poultry, swine and aquatic animals. Livestock production, animal health and the environment can all benefit when feed is supplemented with optimum amounts of high-quality amino acids.

Our added value

  • NIR and wet chemistry services on a large scale, analyzing more than 700.000 ingredient samples yearly.
  • Fast and reliable results due to more than 20 years of experience in amino acids calibration development.
  • Best-in-class quality control: Outlier detection, ring tests and performance checks.
  • Most accurate and comprehensive database of the most common feed ingredients.
  • Species calculator to composite the best diet for the animal depending on its growing phase needs.
  • Ensure the homogenous distribution of amino acids within the feed mix.
  • Benefit from precise dosing and use every gram of amino acids.

The global population is steadily growing. Total demand, per capita consumption and production of poultry meat will grow with it. At the same time, the world’s animal protein producers are facing challenges like never before, including managing food safety, animal welfare and environmental aspects.

Performance, effectiveness, efficiency –scientists, nutritionists and livestock producers have a common vocabulary when discussing animal nutrition. In swine, bio-efficacy is usually measured in weight gain, feed conversion and body protein retention. As feed cost represents almost three-quarters of the total cost of swine production, our products and services aim at supporting producers in all aspects of production, especially in optimizing performance, efficiency, sustainability and profitability.

Apart from population growth, rising prosperity in emerging countries and changing dietary habits are driving up milk consumption – and milk production. For economic and environmental reasons, the best way to meet the demand is by increasing milk yield. Performance improvements, such as stabilized milk fat content, improved fertility and general health of the herd, can be achieved with an optimized nutrient supply. 



fish scale, Fischschuppen
Soaring fishmeal prices affect the growing aquaculture industry directly. Producers need solutions for reducing feed costs while at the same time maintaining or enhancing feed performance. Alternative feeding concepts, which replace marine ingredients with alternative protein sources such as plant-based protein and terrestrial animal by-products, can help to meet those challenges.
