Trouw Nutrition is a world leader in the area of animal nutrition; extensive research and development has been conducted to help broiler and turkey producers maintain or improve animal performance in the face of reducing antibiotics in their feeding programs. Through innovative feed additives, we can offer several feeding programs from reduced antibiotic programs (with no antibiotics important in human medicine (NMIA)) to be raised without antibiotics programs (RWA).

 

Poultry-Our Approach-Layer Programs

Egg production is a physiologically complex process for the hen, involving the mobilization of different amounts and types of nutrients at different times of the day. Precise feeding is required in order to match the circadian biological rhythm of the animal. Trouw Nutrition supports laying hen production through innovative feed solutions and management practices with a focus on optimum cost formulations, increasing eggshell quality and laying performance.

Antibiotic Free

Innovation and the reduction of antibiotics are amongst Trouw Nutrition's top priorities. We have used our research and development power to bring to the market the best alternative solutions to antibiotics. Our RWA (raised without antibiotics) feeding programs, which contain a selection of proprietary feed additives that contribute to maintaining animal healthare market leaders in supporting producer's goals in the changing environment to reducing the use of antibiotics.  

 

Split Feeding

By utilizing a split-feeding regime, it is possible to achieve improved eggshell quality and laying persistency on a reduced nutrients intake, when compared with a single-feed approach. The morning feed delivers the nutrition for energy, protein and phosphorous for egg lay production, while the afternoon feed meets the requirements for eggshell formation.  

 This not only offers a reduction in feed and production costs, but also results in more effective delivery of feed ingredients, with less excretion of nutrients. With Trouw Nutrition’s support it is possible to calculate the precise supply of nutrients required for the two daily feeds, in order to ensure optimum egg formation for your flock.  

 

Benchmarking

Trouw Nutrition has been benchmarking the performance of birds for more than forty years. Over the years we have transitioned our benchmarking capabilities from using calculators and spreadsheets to online databases. CompivolTM is the highly regarded benchmarking software available from Trouw Nutrition. CompivolTM features a technical-economical results analysis module that can be used to compare flock performance for broiler chickens, turkeys, ducks, and egg-laying hens using the online NutriOpt® platform. CompivolTM is a unique tool designed to help your business identify areas for improvement and develop an action plan to achieve your objectives.
