Staff correspondent: Selective enzymes are key additives to be considered in animal nutrition. Enzymes will allow an increase in energy digestibility and reduce problems linked with viscosity, especially in straw cereals rich diets. As the cost of feed generally represents between 60-70% of the total cost of animal production, feed efficiency is a major parameter to consider when optimising the cost of production. But now a day though high prices of feed ingredients our industrialist have turned greater attention to feed enzymes. Feed producers and integrators may not be getting the full feed cost reduction benefits from their current application. Therefore, the selection and use of enzymes should carefully be considered.
Considering these issues, a seminar on "Reducing Feed Cost by selecting Enzymes” is jointly organized by Doctor’s Agrovet Limited & CJ Bio was held Tuesday (24 May) at 6:30 PM at Hotel La Meridien Dhaka.

Expert addressed that feed formulation needs to do the right thing at the right time. At present, the prices of raw materials for global feed production are skyrocketing, so we need to choose enzymes that can reduce the cost of feed production as well as increase productivity in poultry production.
Entrepreneurs involved in the poultry industry feel that the prices of raw materials for feed production have risen sharply in the world today. There is no possibility of sudden reduction in the price of these raw materials. In this case, animal nutritionists can play an important role in changing the feed formulation. In that case, such seminar is considered very important for all concerned. Market conditions for corn (maize), wheat, soyabean meal and phosphates have encouraged nutritionists to explore new ways to optimize their feeds.
