It is important to correctly balance protein/ amino acid requirements to ensure productivity, bird welfare and sustainability. This technical guide outlines the most common limiting amino acids, common feed sources and their protein and amino acid profile, as well as potential plant and animal-based protein sources. To reach 100% organic poultry diets, practical, economic and environmental foot print must be considered. Within the category of plant ingredients, oilseeds and in particular European-produced soya meal seem to be the most promising long term alternative to imported soya meal. Within the category of legumes, peas, beans and sainfoin seeds seem to be a viable option because of their relatively high digestible methionine content, and their good availability.
This tool is especially relevant for organic poultry farmers in Europe, however there is also relevant information for farmers in other regions.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Learn about organic feed sources which fulfil poultry high nutrient requirements.
What problem does the tool address?:The main dietary challenge for poultry producers is ensuring that rations fulfil the protein requirements and the correct amino acid profile. This is a particular challenge for organic poultry producers as the use of synthetic amino acids is not allowed.
What solution does the tool offer?:This guide analyses the potential of locally produced and novel protein sources as viable, alternative feed sources for the organic poultry industry.
Country:United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
