OPTIMISING NUTRIENT ABSORPTION FOR INCREASED ANIMAL PERFORMANCE

Producers worldwide face the challenge to balance feed costs and animal productivity. Improving the digestion and absorption nutrients from feed can help animal producers achieve both efficiency and profitability.

 

 

LYSOFORTE® improves the digestion and absorption of nutrients. Especially in young poultry, this digestive aid significantly reduces the dietary stress in the animal, resulting in increased animal performance.

In addition, by applying LYSOFORTE in broiler breeder diets, chicks get a head start. LYSOFORTE improves fertility, egg production and hatchability in broiler breeders by increasing the vitamin E absorption.

 

The use of LYSOFORTE in weaning piglets ensures better growth and feed conversion because of better nutrient absorption and utilisation.

Furthermore, LYSOFORTE assists sows in ensuring piglets get the best possible start in life. Farrowing is a very energy consuming process for sows. By improving the digestion and absorption of fats and other nutrients, LYSOFORTE increases milk production in sows. This way, LYSOFORTE results in more homogeneous litters and increases the average body weight of the piglets at weaning.

 

LYSOFORTE also takes care of the sow’s condition. LYSOFORTE reduces the body weight and back fat loss caused by farrowing and lactation, ultimately reducing the number of non-productive days.

The use of a multi-enzyme ingredient like KEMZYME® Plus in weaning piglets makes it possible to help the piglet digest at the level of a more mature animal. This way, more nutrients are taken up and fewer nutrients reach the hindgut. Moreover, reduction of nutrients in the hindgut has been linked to a reduced risk of dysbiosis, again resulting in a more resistant piglet.

 

Considering that weaning is accompanied by a change in the diet from sow’s milk to vegetable feed and an introduction into a new environment weaning can have a distinct negative effect on the digestive performance of piglets. Especially the secretion of endogenous enzymes, such as proteases and amylases, is severely affected. In addition, the main source of energy in piglet diets, starch, is composed by amylose and amylopectin. 

The proportion of amylose and amylopectin (amylose/amylopectin ratio) in starch can be very variable which causes variable and not consistent starch digestibility in piglets. The right combination of enzymes, as offered in KEMZYME Plus, is crucial to break down the NSP complex substrate of the piglet diets and to compensate for the reduced endogenous enzyme secretions. 

Supporting the Whole Life-Cycle

In addition to the support they offer specifically to young animals, LYSOFORTE and KEMZYME Plus  also provide nutritional support throughout the remainder of the life-cycle. With the use of LYSOFORTE in fattening poultry and fattening pigs overall improved animal performance as well as feed cost savings can be achieved.

 

 

Complex Layers Diets Require Optimal Digestive Support

It is very clear that we are moving towards more complex diets with an increased and more diverse Non-Starch Polysaccharide (NSP) composition. In such diets, the use of alternative raw materials with high fibre content and lower nutritional value plays a fundamental role. Therefore, it is more than ever crucial to optimize nutrient retention and performance of these complex diets to the maximum.

KEMZYME Plus has been optimally designed to improve nutrient digestibility providing maximum functionality on complex diets of laying hens. It allows more flexible feed formulation with higher levels of crude fiber and higher inclusion rates of by-products, keeping diet efficacy and increasing laying hen welfare in challenging conditions.

LYSOFORTE improved the digestion and absorption of fats and other nutrients. Specifically, LYSOFORTE increases egg production due to better absorption of fat soluble vitamins, such as vitamin E.
