Better feed value

ENERGY value of wheat can be increased by 6% with the inclusion of Avizyme 2300, without affecting layer performance.

That is the result of trials at Scottish Agricultural College, Auchincruive, by enzyme maker Finnfeeds.

At todays raw material prices, this represents a cost saving of £1.86/t of feed, even when including the cost of Avizyme, says Finnfeeds.

Further trial work at the Queens University of Belfast showed that the inclusion of the enzyme Avizyme 2300 reduced viscosity in wheat and wheat/barley fed layers. &#42
