Peter Chrystal

Nutritionist at Complete Feed Solutions, Australia/New Zealand

The benefits of GAA on the three pillars of sustainability


  • Environment: N excretion and litter volume reduction due to Arg-sparing capability of GAA and improved N-retention
  • Animal Welfare & Health: GAA as a tool against heat stress and foot pad dermatitis
  • Economics: On top supplementation for improved FCR and BW gain, Feed cost reduction due to energy-sparing of GAA

Peter has presented at a number of conferences around the globe and been both author andco-author of several peer reviewed publications.  Current challenges in Australia include nutritional strategies for growing broilers in a reduced antibiotic environment and deciding on what alternatives (if any) should be used.  In addition, his interest in reducing crude protein in commercial broiler diets, without sacrificing broiler performance, to reduce reliance on imported soyabean meal, achieve a reduction of litter moisture (and nitrogen excretion) and ultimately improve bird welfare outcomes is receiving a great deal of attention.
