SANAMI TATEKURA and ALEJANDRO CRIADO discuss that by using the world’s largest independent calibration database, feed producers can save significant time and money by not having to invest in developing their own calibrations. Reliable calibrations also have the potential to substantially improve feed formulation precision and reduce losses associated with feed variability.

Mycotoxin biomarkers – discovering the real mycotoxin impact

ARNAU VIDAL presents that by detecting metabolites of 36 different mycotoxins in blood, the true exposure of animals to mycotoxins can be (for the first time) correctly assessed, by uncovering mycotoxin exposure would have been missed if only feed was analyzed.

MICHELE DE MARCO, DENISE CARDOSO and VISHWAS GOWDA discuss how recent analytical improvements for seleno-yeasts, better differentiate inorganic and organic selenium should be taken into account to obtain a precise evaluation of the variable composition of seleno-yeasts.

Precision feeding enhances broiler growth efficiency

AMY MOSS, PETER CHRYSTAL, AAMIR NAWAB, REZA BAREKATAIN and TAMSYN CROWLEY evaluate precision feeding regimes to match the daily nutrient requirements of broiler chickens.

Vitamin A – stability and bioavailability is key

KOK-PING CHAN and WOLF PELLETIER present that various vitamin A products have different stability and bioavailability and these important factors should be considered when choosing a vitamin A product for premix and feed.
