Animal Nutrition & Health
Kemin Solutions for Animal Nutrition & Health
As the world population continues to expand and the demand for protein soars, we believe raising healthy livestock and poultry is more important now than ever before.
We deliver products and services that help producers achieve optimal nutrition, feed quality and gut health—all while maximizing the profitability of our customers. The solutions developed in our laboratories help to improve our customers' bottom line while meeting the ever-changing landscape of consumer expectations.
Kemin solutions improve animal nutrition via enhanced ingredient utilization, strengthen safety throughout various stages of the food chain and develop new solutions focused on improving overall animal health.
Gut Health Solutions
Due to customer demands, producers have been asked to change the way livestock and poultry are raised—specifically through better antibiotic stewardship. This requires changes to animal production management including feed and vaccination programs. To address these changes, producers are considering antibiotic alternatives to maintain similar feed efficiency, growth rates and production levels.
Maintaining a high level of productivity with less reliance on antibiotics requires a change in the way livestock and poultry are raised—specifically through better antibiotic stewardship. This requires changes to animal production management including feed and vaccination programs. To address these changes, producers are considering antibiotic alternatives to maintain similar feed efficiency, growth rates and production levels.
Maintaining a high level of productivity with less reliance on antibiotics requires a change in the way we think about intestinal health and animal productivity. Intestinal health plays a large role in animal performance and should, therefore, be elevated to the same level of importance as other management practices.
Kemin Gut Health Solutions provides a comprehensive approach to gut health by strengthening and maintaining intestinal integrity, microbial balance and immune function. Kemin's gut health products have been rigorously tested to ensure the well-being of livestock and poultry.
These solutions include:
- Coated products manufactured to slowly release active ingredients throughout the digestive tract to improve overall health.
- Nutritional acidifiers to help establish improved absorption and protection against pathogens.
Feed Quality Solutions
Animal feed quality is often judged based on its nutritional value and overall appearance. Maintaining quality and nutritional value in feed cannot be achieved solely through sound harvest and storage practices. Producers must also consider solutions specially designed to protect feed value.
Kemin continues to innovate solutions to help producers maintain feed nutritional value, as we offer a variety of solutions for grain treatment, forage preservation, fat and oil stability and diet integrity. Adding Kemin Feed Quality solutions to your operation can help prolong feed shelf-life, reduce production costs and improve animal performance.
Animal Nutrition Solutions
Producers, nutritionists and veterinarians are constantly working to find cost-effective dietary solutions to improve the productivity of livestock and poultry.
These solutions include:
- Trace minerals to support the digestion, immune and respiratory systems of livestock and poultry.
- Carotenoid products to help poultry producers improve egg yolk quality and nutrition.
The products within the Kemin Nutrition platform work to improve the health of animals and result in more efficient absorption of nutrients, enhanced performance and improved feed efficiency.
In addition, the Kemin Technical Service Team helps customers successfully implement these products in the most effective way possible.
Proper application of all products is essential for product efficacy. The Product Application Department (PAD) works with customers to develop systems to accurately and efficiently apply Kemin products in your specific system.
The Customer Laboratory Services (CLS) offered by Kemin is available to identify problem areas and confirm product efficacy for customers.
