A recent publication on methionine sources comparison in ducks: Zhao et al. 2018 (Poultry Science) has been presented by Dr. Dolores Batonon Alavo at the European Poultry Conference held in Dubrovnik, Croatia on the 20th September 2018. This study was performed on 630 Cherry Valley ducks reared

from 1 to 42 days in China. Diets were based on corn, wheat and soybean meal and formulated according to NRC (1994) recommendations. Treatments consisted in a basal diet deficient in TSAA and eight supplemented treatments with either DL-Methionine or OH-Methionine. For the supplemented treatments, equimolar doses of methionine added to the basal diet from 0 to 21 d (0.04, 0.12, 0.16 and 0.20%) and from 21 to 42 d (0.0.2, 0.06, 0.10 and 0.14%). OH-Methionine was found as efficient as DL-Methionine to sustain Cherry Valley ducks’ growth performance concerning body, carcass, breast or feather weights. In addition, methionine efficacy determined as the extra methionine intake per extra weight gain shows similar values between DL-Met and OH-Met. The calculation of bio-efficacy on this criterion confirms that DL-Met and OH-Met have the same bio-efficacy on body weight gain. No significant difference of feather weight or yield was observed

Performance depends on the right mineral. Do it right with the Alltech® Mineral Management program for better absorption, less waste and optimum health. Mineral management is more than just preventing deficiencies. Incorrect mineral supplementation can have major consequences on animal health and productivity. Traditional methods of supplementation have used inorganic minerals. However, inorganic minerals are poorly absorbed by the animal. This has caused a shift to organic mineral supplementation in many markets. Break with tradition and feed your animals the modern way. Authorised in the EU in December 2016, this source of copper(I) Alltech has proven that organic trace minerals in the form of oxide presents the same benefits as HiZox®: high flowability, high Bioplex® and Sel-Plex® can be included at significantly lower levels concentration (75%) and high bioavailability. while improving animal performance.

Using glycine as a ligand, together with the production process of B-TRAXIM®2C, ensures pure metal glycinates (without carriers and free-flowing agents) and high metal concentrations. Product characteristics of mineral sources are important selection criteria for feed and premix producers around the world. The main focus is on safety (dust control, smell), cross-contamination in production facilities (caking, free-flowing characteristics) and distribution in premix and feed (homogeneity of particle size). B-TRAXIM®2C products are produced using a specific spray granulation process, providing a very homogenous, dust-free, odourless, stable and free-flowing microgranulate, perfect for premix and feed production.
