H.J. Baker introduces new amino acid precision programme for poultry industry
H.J. Baker & Bro., Inc announced the launch of their Triple-A Formulation Programme, which is an amino acid availability precision formulation programme for the poultry industry.
This proprietary amino acid availability programme has been designed with input from leading researchers at major universities to give nutritionists quantifiable nutrient digestibility coefficients, the ultimate assurance they need in reliability, consistency, performance and safety of animal-protein concentrates.
H.J. Baker accomplishes this by accurately formulating their animal-protein concentrates to precise amino acid digestibility specifications, delivering a consistent, stable product, and then conducting live-bird tests to ensure the formulation works as designed.
The Triple-A Formulation Programme was developed using an exhaustive three step research process.
First, the corner stone of the Triple-A Formulation Programme is the digestibility database. Through extensive research, H.J. Baker has developed and catalogued one of the most comprehensive libraries of animal protein amino acid digestibility data available. Second, to confirm the amino acid digestibility data is representative of ingredients typically being used in their six manufacturing plants, H.J. Baker has instituted an on-going testing programme to analyse and quantify the digestibility levels of amino acids. This stream of information constantly refreshes the historical digestibility values in their formulation data base. Third, to ensure the accuracy of the digestibility coefficients being used, finished samples of protein concentrates are tested at major universities. This provides continued assurance that the products they are using are performing as designed.
All animal-protein concentrates are shipped with an anti-microbial additive and an antioxidant.
Mark Hohnbaum, President of H.J. Baker's Feed Products Group stated, "We always want to provide our customers with the best possible products and service. We feel the Triple-A Formulation Programme used in the manufacture of H.J. Baker's PRO PLUS and PRO-PAK protein concentrates sets us far above the competition and demonstrates in real time that these are superior products that provide superior results."
Hohnbaum added, "Customers who purchase H.J. Baker's PRO PLUS and PRO-PAK protein concentrates not only get animal-protein formulations based on the most extensive amino acid digestibility data available, but they are able to fine-tune their formulations, thereby maximising bird performance while minimising feed cost. Today, it is all about efficiency."
