DSM in Animal Nutrition & Health

Check vitamin levels in animal feed. Always.

All ingredients in animal feed are regularly evaluated and likewise vitamin levels and ratios require the same degree of attention. We therefore encourage the feed industry and all other stakeholders to check the vitamin levels in their animal feed. Always.

Optimum Vitamin Nutrition (OVNTM) is about feeding animals high quality vitamins in the right amounts and ratios appropriate to their life stage and growing conditions. To accomplish this, we are intensely engaged in research and development and we focus on partnering with all important stakeholders – leading scientists, universities, genetics companies, independent research institutes, and customers. This enables us to develop and produce a complete line of high quality vitamins and support the feed industry with the DSM Vitamin Supplementation Guidelines.
