The poultry industry accounts for a major and growing part of human protein consumption, including eggs and meat. Feed represents the greatest single expenditure associated with poultry production and this highlights the importance of improving feed conversion efficiency and maximizing the efficiency of poultry production in a cost-effective manner.
Most poultry species are omnivores and have a short digestive tract with unique features including the crop, a storage organ, and the gizzard, a grinding organ. There is only a very short transit time for nutrients to be digested and absorbed. High-performing birds therefore need easily digested, nutrient-dense and balanced diets.
Nu3guts experts propose innovative solutions to boost animal health, improve digestion and thus feed conversion efficiency, performance and profitability while coping with consumer demands for more responsible production, banning the use of antibiotics and reducing the environmental impact of poultry production.
