US soy promoted for South - East Asian poultry diet
The US Soybean Export Council (USSEC) and Novus International is doing a collaboration on animal science and nutrition activities in Southeast Asia focusing on poultry diet enhancement.
Dr Leeson presents data to representatives from CP Indonesia.
More than 40 nutritionists and farm managers from the feed industry travelled to Indonesia to participate in a recent seminar.
Steve Leeson, PhD, from the University of Guelph, Ontario, delivered presentations focused on layer and broiler nutrition. He also emphasized the fact that soymeal will remain a major ingredient in poultry nutrition.
Additionally, Dr Leeson discussed the nutritional management of broilers and layers in hot and humid climates, metabolisable energy, amino acid requirements and stocking density for broilers and layers.
Salim Bootwalla, Ph.D., an animal nutrition technical director, also presented data on the nutrient values of soymeal from different origins. Bootwalla stressed the benefits of using US soymeal in poultry diets based on amino acid content.
