Accurate feed formulation is essential for optimizing feed efficiency and minimizing feed cost. Dietary energy level is usually the starting point for setting most nutrient constituents of the diet. However, to optimize profit, amino acid to energy ratio must be considered depending on the production objectives. The first section of this webinar will focus on the interaction between amino acids and energy, and how to formulate to optimize profits while meeting production objectives.. In part two , there will be a discussion on nutrient variability in feed ingredients and how enzymes such as xylanase, amylase, protease (with phytase in the background) can be used in combination to maximize nutrient utilization and reduce feed cost. Details of cost savings and performance improvements for l simple and complex diets will be given to illustrate findings.
This webinar will broadcast at:
9:00 AM Central (Chicago)
3:00 PM GMT (London)
4:00 PM CET (Berlin)
5:00 PM SAST (Cape Town)
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
The importance of optimizing amino acid to energy ratios in poultry diets.
How to minimize the effect of nutrient variability of feed ingredients on poultry performance.
The cost benefits of using multi-enzymes such as xylanase, amylase and protease in combination in poultry diets and the added advantages of running phytase in the background

Dr. Ahmed Amerah - Innovation Scientist, Danisco Animal Nutrition
With more than 10 years of experience in a wide range of research areas in animal nutrition, Dr. Amerah has developed strong expertise in feed processing technology, including an in-depth knowledge of ingredient characteristics and feeding value. His primary areas of focus have included; the use of feed additives to maximise nutrient utilisation and reduce waste, as well as enhancing dietary quality through a better understanding of interactions between ingredients, processing and economic constraints. His work also explores the potential of alternative feed ingredients and solutions to manage variability in ingredient quality using combination of technologies. A graduate of the University of Jordan, Dr. Amerah earned both his Masters and PhD degrees at Massey University, New Zealand, where he later worked as a Researcher. He joined Danisco Animal Nutrition (now part of DuPont) in 2008, and today leads research efforts in animal nutrition to develop innovative solutions for the poultry industry in collaboration with a multi-disciplinary group of scientists. He is the author of 22 peer-reviewed journal articles, three published book chapters and more than 40 conference papers in addition to numerous trade press articles.
Dr. Guillermo Zavala is the founder of Avian Health International. Dr Zavala holds a DVM and a specialty in poultry production from the University of Mexico; a Master of Science, a Master of Avian Medicine, and a PhD in medical microbiology from the University of Georgia. He has worked in broiler and breeding companies, vaccine companies, one diagnostic laboratory, two academic institutions and as Adjunct Professor at the Department of Population Health, University of Georgia. His field of research is in applied virology (CIAV, IBDV, tumor viruses, ILT, enteric viruses and fowl adenovirus). He has 32 publications in peer-reviewed journals.
