Animal Feed and Performance Solutions

Kerry animal feed additives and processing aids help optimise poultry and swine nutrient absorption, improve animal gut health and support the sustainable and efficient production of feed for a range of animals.

Proven on the farm, trusted on the plate

Future-proof your business with our innovative feed technologies. As our partner, we’ll help you produce safe, sustainable, affordable and trusted animal protein.


Unlock more value from your feed

Studies demonstrate that adding our multi-carbohydrase enzyme to feed helps improve feed efficiency when compared to single component xylanase enzymes.

Optimise the nutritional value of animal feed

With profit margins continuing to tighten, you can’t afford to let nutrients slip away. Our portfolio of targeted enzyme solutions can help capture more nutrients from your existing feedstuffs.

Soybean meal in particular poses a challenge to poultry and swine producers because it contains large concentrations of non-starch polysaccharides and oligosaccharides which are not fully digested by pigs and chickens.

Kerry AlphaGal™/AGal-Pro™

The unique AlphaGal/AGal-Pro enzyme system has been designed specifically to counteract the limitations of using soybean meal and other oilseed-based proteins in pig feed and poultry feed formulations. Only AlphaGal/AGal-Pro enzymes contain alpha-galactosidase to help animals digest oligosaccharides and non-starch polysaccharides.

Kerry AlphaGal/AGal-Pro has been scientifically proven to optimise the nutritional value of these feed ingredients and maximise the energy density of feed rations.

Key benefits:
  • Allows greater use of less costly raw materials
  • Improves poultry and swine feed digestibility
  • Decreases the incidence of wet litter and associated negative impact on carcass quality
  • Is easy-to-use and can be included in premixes, mixed into feed before pelleting or sprayed on after pelleting

Improve gut function for healthier poultry and pigs

As consumers continue to demand animal proteins free from antibiotics, it is critical to find nutritional solutions that support poultry and pig health while pushing performance limits. Our range of “biotics” can help meet animal health and performance demands by improving gut health.

Kerry MicroPro and GanPro™

MicroPro and GanPro are carefully selected strains of probiotics to support pig and poultry health. They have been shown to deliver a positive impact on animal health by suppressing pathogenic bacteria, improving gut morphology and facilitating the growth of beneficial microflora.

Kerry UpGrade™ AF

UpGrade AF is leading the way towards the next frontier of gut health solutions—postbiotics. UpGrade AF is derived from our proprietary dry cultured whey and can support gut health by modulating the intracellular cyclic AMP signalling pathways that control the gut water and electrolyte exchange across the gut lumen.

This postbiotic solution can withstand harsh gastrointestinal environments and can reduce storage and handling issues because efficacy is not dependent on viable microorganisms, but rather thermally stable strain-specific products resulting from fermentation. By offering functional molecules directly, UpGrade AF can begin to work immediately and provide a more targeted response.

Kerry Everwell™

Everwell is a proprietary baker’s yeast beta 1,3/1,6 glucan which works by safely priming the key immune cells that contribute to an organism’s main line of defence against viruses and bacteria. Kerry Everwell™ is particularly suited to promote young animals’ inherent immunity during critical periods, such as the weaning of pigs, or specific disease challenges.

Produce higher quality feed more efficiently

The profitability of feed milling is underpinned by the cost of raw materials and the efficiency of pellet manufacturing. We understand the challenges of feed processing, such as minimising fines during pelleting and improving pellet durability.

Our premium technological solutions for feed pelleting are designed to maximize output while keeping costs low.

Kerry Myvatex™ AF-11

Myvatex AF-11 is a blend of salts from fatty acids, distilled succinylated monoglycerides and mono- and di-glycerides that optimise the physico-chemical interactions during pellet conditioning, proven to reduce production costs while improving product quality.

Key benefits:

Reduces production costs:

  • Improve throughput by up to 57% (ton/hr) *
  • Reduce power consumption by up to 36%*
  • Increase inclusion of water
  • Increase use of low-cost ingredients
  • Extend use of dies

Increases capacity and improve product quality:

  • Fewer fines
  • Less burning
  • Extend shelf-life
  • Increase polydispersity index (PDI)

*Based on 11 U.S. field trials, details available upon request.
