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.
