During this webinar, on Thursday, May 6, you will learn how exogenous enzymes work with different types of fibers to improve the profitability and sustainability of pork production.
When you attend this webinar, you will learn:
- The importance of knowing the composition, quality characteristics, and limitations of available grains, byproducts, and oilseed meals
- Not all dietary fiber is the same — fiber is complicated
- Improving the digestibility of dietary fiber requires multiple, specific enzymes
- Supplementing the correct exogenous enzymes can significantly improve the palatability and digestion of some feed ingredients.
- Feed enzymes provide increased flexibility for the profitable use of alternative feed ingredients or byproducts.
