Managing Vitamin Nutrition

Selected Species

High-quality vitamins at the right amount supports your poultry health, welfare, and sustainable production.

What can affect vitamin levels

  • Vitamins are essential micronutrients required for poultry, but flock needs vary based on multiple factors
  • During feed processing, vitamin stability directly impacts feed costs and vitamin efficacy
  • Vitamin bioavailability influences how much of the vitamins fed are being used by the bird and how much is going to waste
  • Vitamin metabolism in the bird can be affected by mycotoxins in the feed
  • Vitamin production and poultry production can be used as measurement tools to help calculate the environmental impact

Vitamin Nutrition Solution

Vitamins should be supplemented and adjusted based on the sub-species, age, and needs of the poultry flock. Vitamins with high stability reduce feed costs and waste while vitamins with high bioavailability ensure that the nutrients are being utilized by the birds, not just fed to them.

By deactivating mycotoxins in the feed, vitamin metabolism can be improved. In a drive for more sustainable production, use tools and services which accurately measure the environmental footprint of feed and poultry production. DSM provides comprehensive solutions for optimal vitamin utilization, ensuring a return on your investment.
