DSM organises enzyme symposium in Thailand
DSM Nutritional Products organised a satellite symposium in Bangkok on August 17, 2016, aiming to extend its technical expertise in feed enzyme application.
The symposium was well attended by stakeholders in the poultry industry across Asia Pacific.
The symposium was chaired and coordinated by Dr. Rider Perez, technical marketing manager, Asia Pacific, DSM Nutritional Products, Singapore.
Dr. Fidelis Fru, director of Marketing and Nutritional Solutions, DSM Nutritional Products, APAC, welcomed the guests and gave a brief introduction about DSM's global activities. A broad range of ingredients and applications from the company support the nutrition and health of animals across species. He also explained DSM's global alliance with Novozymes, world leader in enzyme research and production, and highlighted the knowledge, capabilities and commitment of both partners in the field of feed enzymes.
Prof. Aaron Cowieson, principal scientist at DSM Animal Nutrition and Health, presented a paper titled "Phytate free nutrition: Diet implications'', in which he highlighted endogenous amino acids flow and energy implications with phytase application. He also explained the role that Myo-inositol plays in phytase nutrition and how it improves the performance of the animal. He presented RONOZYME® HiPhos on broiler meta-analysis which contained data from several different studies across the world, and illustrated how all of these can be put in a model to predict the effect of the enzyme at normal dosages and also at very high dosages.
Dr. Caterina Sefenello, Department of Animal Science, UFRGS, Porto Alegre, Brazil, presented a paper titled "Maximising protease benefits by understanding your amino acid levels''. Her trial data showed improvement in ileal digestibility of soymeal amino acids from different regional sources when supplemented with a feed protease (RONOZYME® ProAct). She also pointed out that exogenous protease is a valuable asset in broiler meat production as its supplementation reduces endogenous losses, as well as narrowing down variability stemming from different raw material quality.
The Brazilian experience on optimising the value of soybean and other ingredients was shared by Jose Otavio B.Sorbara, global enzymes manager, DSM Nutritional products Switzerland. He explained the variability of nutrients in soymeal, full fat soy and corn samples collected from different regions in Brazil, and their impact on feed cost as well as quality. He demonstrated that RONOZYME® ProAct is an ideal tool to mitigate the problem of nutrient variability and presented data on the improvement in Standardised Ileal Digestibility (SID) of amino acids. He introduced a user-friendly online tool to optimise diets with RONOZYME® ProAct (The New ProAct Calculator). The tool covers 22 poultry feed ingredients and the matrix values that can be used in any diet that contains these ingredients. He also invited customers and industry experts to try out the tool, and they expressed keen interest in using it.
