Animal Nutrition


We’re developing feed additives to keep animals energetic and productive.

Raising ruminants is challenging. You have to meet the ever-expanding global demand for high-quality milk and meat while less resources become available and raw material prices fluctuate unpredictably. You need to make sure that your animals are vital and achieve optimum performance so you can earn a good profit.

How can a producer cope with all of this? You need passion and experience – and efficient feed additives from your supplier: the best products for a sustainable future from a leading expert like BASF.

Demand for milk and meat is growing by two to three percent every year and will continue to expand with nine billion people consuming ever-larger amounts of it by 2050. At the same time the amount of farm land available for feed production will remain limited. With these challenges ahead, ruminant farmers need to build on experience and expertise in nutrition. This is an essential investment as it helps to care for the environment and animals alike, saves money, keeps farm operations efficient and ready for the future.

BASF’s feed additives help meat and milk producers to be successful. They not only efficiently bind mycotoxins in the feed and help with top performance and vital growth, they also supply the animals with essential nutrients. And, for example, Lutrell® makes lactation less straining – the cows feel better and achieve a longer lifetime performance.

We believe that excellent product quality is the key to success, and our expertise in animal nutrition is backed by decades of experience in the production, formulation, and application of feed additives.
