Protect Profits Through Supplementation of HMTBa
With narrow industry margins and less antibiotic use, profit-cutting condemnations are a big concern for chicken farmers. For broiler birds, septicaemia, toxaemia and airsacculitis are the leading causes of condemnations. These challenges don’t come with a single cause or cure but there is something already in a bird’s diet that is shown to reduce the rates of these aliments. Methionine can make a difference between the condemned and those birds heading to the dinner plate. This article features research from Senior Manager of Global Poultry Research Dr. Francis Yan on how certain methionine sources can help reduce condemnation losses in poultry.
