Turkey producers to benefit from enzymes
Following the European Commission's decision to award
Danisco Animal Nutrition's AvizymeÂ® 1500 authorisation for use in turkeys,
turkey producers throughout the EU are set to gain increased benefits from the
use of specialised feed enzymes. Broiler, layer, turkey and duck producers will
now be able to benefit from this multi-enzyme product.
The combined carbohydrase enzyme activities in Avizyme 1500
(xylanase and amylase) improve both fibre and
starch digestibility in the feed. This increases dietary energy supply to the
bird to fuel lean growth. This is particularly beneficial in young turkey diets
that contain high levels of vegetable protein, for example soybean meal. The
protease helps by making the storage proteins in soybean meal more digestible.
It also reduces the impact of residual anti-nutrients that may still be present
in the meal, such as trypsin inhibitors and lectins.
â€œThis approval is very good news for turkey producers across Europe.
Improvements in bird performance help reduce production costs as birds reach
specified retailer target weights faster,â€ comments Anne-Marie Debicki-Garnier,
regional technical manager for Danisco.
