Caribbean Poultry Producers Look to U.S. Soy to Increase Production Efficiency

USSEC recently participated in poultry seminars in Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago. Alberto Celis and Robert Thomas, USSEC consultants, provided technical support during the seminars. Celis delivered two lectures about basic broiler and layer nutrition and the importance of digestible amino acids in poultry feed. Thomas discussed the methods to improve efficiency and minimize loss during the production process. Nearly 60 poultry farmers and feed manufacturers attended each seminar. The contractors also promoted the benefits of U.S. soy meal in regard to the high digestible amino acid content as compared to meal of other origins. Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago imported more than 125,000 metric tons of U.S. soy meal during the past marketing year.
