Phytogenic Feed Additives Survey 2020
Download the Results of BIOMIN’s Phytogenic Feed Additives Survey, a special issue of Science & Solutions Magazine
Continued Growth for Phytogenic Feed Additives
We have now completed our 3rd Phytogenic Feed Additive (PFA) survey and are delighted to share the results with you in this special issue of Science & Solutions. In carrying out this global survey again, we have further increased our knowledge about PFA application in the field, giving us a better understanding of the challenges faced by food animal producers all over the world.
The results of the 2020 survey are in line with our expectations. We have worked hard to increase awareness of PFAs over the past two years and are encouraged to see increasing global sales. We especially note that 80% of survey respondents in Latin America predict an increase in PFA usage in the coming 12 months, showing the value PFA products can bring.
In addition to the survey results, Mathias Zaunschirm takes a closer look at the emerging trend of applying PFA products in drinking water. Not only does this application free up space in the diet, it also ensures that PFAs are delivered to the gastrointestinal tract, even during times of supressed feed intake.
Reducing neonatal diarrhea remains a costly problem for food animal producers all over the world. Tyler Turner looks at ways PFAs can help development of the gut in this important lifecycle stage.
Finally, Mariana Masiero shares some trial results demonstrating the improvement in nutrient utilization and growth performance in piglets when Digestarom® DC Xcel is added to the diet.
We hope you enjoy this issue of Science & Solutions, keeping you naturally informed.
