Watch on demand now to learn which analytical parameters are of importance to evaluate the nutritional value of protein-rich feed ingredients.
The global agricultural sector and the animal feed industry is confronted with dramatically increased costs of raw materials and energy, disrupted supply chains and logistical problems, changes in consumer behavior and labor shortages. In animal production, 60-70% of total production costs are feed, which makes efficient feed usage critical to the bottom line. In this webinar, special focus is given to the evaluation of the nutritional value of protein-rich feed ingredients like soybean and rapeseed products and DDGS. Learn which analytical parameters are helpful to describe the nutritional value considering qualitative differences caused by processing and the quality control of protein-rich feed ingredients. Understand how to benefit from formulation data and how to move one step closer to precision nutrition and increase the efficiency of animal production. The presentation will be given by Dr. Markus Wiltafsky-Martin, Director of Service Commercialization for the Animal Nutrition business, Evonik.
