In a recent webinar, hosted by All About Feed in cooperation with Adisseo, the topic of Volatility – Challenges in animal feeding was explored. There were 3 perspectives, the animal production view, the plant manager view and the nutritionist view. If you missed this webinar which took place on 5 April 2022, here’s your chance to watch it again!

The period that we are currently going through is particularly challenging because of the high prices of raw materials but also their availability. The use of less common raw materials, available and potentially less expensive, can be an alternative to traditional protein and energy sources. However, challenges are as numerous as the variety of raw materials that are available in the market. Adisseo proposed a 3-step vision on the topic.
