Poultry World will host a free webinar in partnership with Evonik at June 14 at 15:00 CEST

In this webinar we will have two contributions on methionine’s importance as feed additive. Methionine is an essential amino acids and limiting in most common poultry diets which makes balancing the dietary amino acid profile with supplemental methionine necessary. This importance is increasing the more dietary protein reduction and precise nutrition are considered. Finally, cost effectiveness is key in times of high feed material prices and correct application of supplemental methionine can help to reduce cost while ensuring optimal animal performance.
