Exploring unexploited opportunities for enzymes to improve profitability is the focus for animal nutrition technology company AB Vista, at this year’s EuroTier animal production trade fair. EuroTier takes place in Hanover, Germany from 13th-16th November 2018.
“Producers, nutritionists and suppliers continue to actively seek out ways to ensure incremental gains from their feed, whether this be through performance improvements or a reduction in feed cost,” says Juan Ignacio Fernández, EMEA Director for AB Vista.
Visitors to AB Vista’s booth (Hall 19/20, Stand C19) can find out about a new enzyme application called ‘Maximum Matrix Nutrition’ that serves to deliver maximum phytate breakdown whilst reducing viscosity and increasing fibre fermentability. The net result is improved nutrient utilisation and a significant improvement in amino acids, minerals and energy, meaning diets can be formulated with higher nutrient credits delivering considerable feed costs savings.
“Superdosing was relatively effective amongst integrators who can see the value in improvement in performance, but what feed compounders and many other producers are looking for is the same performance with cheaper feed – and that’s what Maximum Matrix Nutrition is all about” explains Dr Rob ten Doeschate, AB Vista Technical Director EMEA.
Visitors to the company’s booth will also be able to pick up a copy of the company’s EMEA Phytate Reference Guide – a first for the animal feed industry. The guide will contain details of phytate levels for a range of raw materials available across the region.
