Nutritional programs are typically designed to optimize animal performance and production efficiency. Inclusion of functional ingredients, such as prebiotics, probiotics, plant extracts, essential oils and enzymes are often directed at optimizing ingredient utilization by improving digestibility and supporting optimal gut integrity. Strategies that combine these tools can be necessary to ensure success because of feed and forage variability, specie and age impact and differences in challenges which influence the animals.
High gut integrity results in optimal gut structure providing a large surface area for digestion and nutrient absorption. High gut integrity also requires low energy expenditure for maintenance; more nutrients are available for production parameters.
Through fundamental and practical research plus experience in both application and impact, PMI Nutritional Additives offers a number of products to support optimized performance.
