Optimum Nutrition. Optimum Performance Improved accuracy improves understanding
While soybean meal is one of the most used feed ingredients in poultry nutrition, what many people don’t know is that the comprehensive value of soybean meal is determined by a combination of quality factors, which vary by origin. Poultry owners need to focus on characteristics that impart nutritional value of the total diet, including animal performance, and not just the ingredient cost. This seminar will highlight that how while considering soybean quality factors, the U.S. has less damage to whole soybeans with less moisture, better soybean meal processing conditions, improved levels of digestible amino acids and greater energy compared to soy of other origins. The session will also discuss the sustainability factor specifically the environmental footprint of soy from different origins, looking at land-use change.
