The Science Behind A Successful Feed Mill Operation
Organic acid use in piglet diets can be considered routine nowadays. Yet, high levels of organic acids in feed formulation take up a lot of otherwise useful space in the feed. Replacing a portion of organic acids with a more powerful additive can create room to further enhance feed formulation or add more economical ra ...
Reducing Antibiotic In Farming
One of the most important changes in livestock production over the past two decades has been the recognition of gut health as a key driver of animal performance. This phenomenon has been accelerated by increasing awareness of the impact of good livestock management profitability and the importance on disease prevention ...
Keeping Feed Safe
Deoxynivalenol (DON) is one of the most common mycotoxins in Asia. According to the 2014 BIOMIN Mycotoxin Survey, 65% of 1,762 tested samples from Asia were contaminated by DON, with an average of positive level of 512 ppb. Contaminated feed ingested by animals leads to mycotoxin exposure and impaired health effects.
Feed ENZYME
Exogenous phytases have been used commerc¡ally s¡nce the early 1990s as a successful tool for reduc¡ng the env¡ronmental ¡mpact of ¡ndustr¡al livestock product¡on and ¡mprov¡ng poultry and sw¡ne prof¡tability (Selle & Rav¡ndran, 2007). These cost-sav¡ng and susta¡nability benef¡ts der¡ve pr¡mar¡ly from phytase's ab ...
Recent Developments in Mineral Nutrition
Trace elements consist of Fe, Zn, Cu, Mn, I, Se, Co, Cr etc, accounting for less than 0.01% of the total body weight only. As aminoacids and vitamins, the trace elements are the essential nutrition additives in feeds, especially Fe, Zn and Mn which are called "biological Metal". See Table 1-1, 1-2
The relationship among housing, health and welfare
Biosecurity is the prevention and control of pathogenic microorganisms from contacting animal or human populations. In the context of modern poultry production, it is essentially keeping the birds separate from the agents causing the disease. Used properly, biosecurity will also minimize the effect of disease and conta ...
Measures to tackle viral disease in Poultry and Swine
Significant economic losses are attributed to immunosuppression in the poultry industry worldwide. Exposure to stressors in the poultry production environment, along with infectious diseases (viral or bacterial) that impair immunity, contribute to an overall reduction in flock health, causing a decrease in productivity ...
Antibiotic Resistance
Big data from animal trials show how feed, farm and health management contribute to reduced antibiotics in poultry production, while maintaining performance and profitability. Poultry integrators are an important part of the food chain and need solutions to assure sustainable animal health and productivity, minimizing ...
