Executives and producers from Latin America met in the U.S. to hear the success story of liquid methionine and its results on farms
Less expensive - and usually lower quality - feed ingredients can come with short-term benefits and longer-term disadvantages. Save some money now but risk paying for it later when excess undigested nutrients reach the lower gut, changing the microflora and ultimately leading to Necrotic Enteritis.
