Addressing challenges along the feed value chain

The entire value chain from feed to farm faces different challenges regarding the optimal supply of trace elements. The premixer needs an easy processability of in-premix production. The feed miller expects an easy processability during in-feed production as well as high feed quality and stability. And for the farmer counts how digestible and bioavailable the trace elements in his feed are. He cares for animal performance and needs to take the environmental impact of using trace elements into account.
