Lifetime Performance

Selected Species

Improving the gut efficiency and dietary energy in poultry supports flocks to go beyond their performance potential

What can affect lifetime performance

  • Reduced energy availability and nutrient blockage usually prevent birds from performing beyond their potential
  • For the highest return on investment, producers need to provide feed that leads to high nutrient availability and feed efficiency
  • In layers and breeders, this will improve uniformity, egg production, persistency of their laying cycle and hatchability (breeders)
  • In meat birds, this will increase body weight gain and livability while reducing feed conversion ratio
  • Optimizing the health of poultry is essential for improving performance and overall production efficiency and thereby helping to drive more sustainable poultry production

Lifetime performance portfolio offering

High quality carotenoids with a vitamin D metabolite support breeder production with more chicks per hen and higher chick quality. In layers, it supports egg quantity and quality. In meat birds, providing carbohydrases improves energy utilization while giving flexibility in feed formulation and cost. Reducing bacterial cell debris in the gut, which blocks nutrient absorption, improves feed efficiency.

By providing optimum vitamins that have higher bioavailability and deactivating mycotoxins, flocks can go beyond their performance potential. By reducing production loss and waste, we can support environmental sustainability. DSM provides comprehensive solutions to improve lifetime performance, ensuring a return on your investment.
