Feed continues to be the major cost of animal production. The release of energy captive in dietary carbohydrate is therefore of critical importance.
The energy challenge
Carbohydrates found in cereal and defatted protein crops are a key source of energy in livestock diets. To feed livestock cost effectively the objective must be to maximize the utilization of energy present in the diet – energy often ‘locked in’ by cell wall composition.
dsm-firmenichoffers the broadest range of feed enzymes specifically developed to improve the nutritive value of cereal and protein crops in monogastric diets. By adding exogenous carbohydrases to the diet, producers can increase feed efficiency through optimizing energy availability to the animal.
