All over the world animal agriculture producers must look to produce more protein affordably and sustainably; in doing so they face many challenges. Since feed costs constitute around 70 percent of the cost of producing meat or eggs, it is paramount to optimize the animals’ diets. Enzymes are one of the key tools in a nutritionist’s toolkit to ensure the animal gets the most out of its diet. Enzymes play a key role in managing both nutrition and animal health. In this multi-part video series, we discuss how enzymes benefit animal agriculture today and how BRI is contributing to that effort.
