A switch to insect-based animal feeds could help the UK reach its net zero carbon emissions target, researchers say.  Among other issues, tackling emissions from agriculture is vital if the UK is to reach its 2050 target, and insect-based feeds offer a promising method to feed animals in a sustainable, low-carbon way. Exploring the science behind insect-based feeds has never been more topical, and a project led by Entec Nutrition, which was set up by 2 University of Exeter scientists, has won a £250,000 grant from the Innovate UK's transforming food production scheme to do just that.Insect-based feeds offer a promising method to feed animals in a sustainable, low-carbon way.

New research has shown that even low levels of mycotoxins found in animal feed have a direct negative impact on the performance of broiler chickens.   The longitudinal three-year study, a first of its kind in this field, was conducted by Oluwatobi Kolawole at the Institute for Global Food Security (IGFS) at Queen’s University Belfast, in partnership with agri technology company Devenish. Published in the Toxins journal of July 2020, the study demonstrated the negative effects of low levels of naturally-occurring toxic substances, i.e. mycotoxins found in animal feed, on poultry performance and health.   In a long-term feeding trial to evaluate the effect of low doses of mycotoxin mixtures, 18 consecutive broiler flocks were monitored on performance and feed intake.

New Delhi: The animal husbandry, dairy and fisheries ministry is concerned over the low consumption of milk and poultry products due to the lockdown, even though they come under essential services. Union minister for animal husbandry, dairy and fisheries, Giriraj Singh along with ministers of state, Sanjeev Balyan and Pratap Sarangi, have been taking stock of the situation on a regular basis. Ever since the lockdown, both the items have witnessed a decline in consumption largely due to supply and demand issues. Initially, many people didn’t buy chicken because of rumours that Covid-19 might spread through poultry. However, the ministry has been regularly clarifying that there is no harm in having chicken. Post the imposition of the lockdown, poultry shops have remained closed. After receiving complaints, the ministry wrote a letter on March 23 to the chief secretaries of all the states to issue necessary directions to include chicken, egg and meat in the...

PUNE: Import of oilmeals, used as animal feed, rose 70% in 2019-20 because of higher demand, stagnant local production and lower duty of shipments from some African countries, trade bodoy Solvent Extractors Association (SEA) said."India imports oilcake/meal for domestic processing and or direct usage in cattle/poultry feeds. During the financial year 2019-20 (Apr.’19 to Mar.’20 ) India imported 1,142,902 tons of various oilcake/meal/feed valued at Rs. 3218.09 crores against 670,709 tons valued at 2558.20 crores during previous year 2018-19, sharply increased by 70% in terms of quantity and 26% in terms of value," a release from SEA said.Demand of oilmeal is rising year as the feed industry is growing at 8% to 10% per annum, while oilseed production in the country is more or less stagnant."The current duty on import of oil bearing material is 19.6%. However, large quantities of oilcake/meals are being imported from certain African countries under India-...

BioMould® – Surface Treatment for SilageIntroductionEnsiling is a forage preservation method based on spontaneous lactic acid fermentation under anaerobic conditions. The epiphytic lactic acid bacteria ferment the water-soluble carbohydrates in the crops to lactic acid-, and, to a lower extent, to acetic acid. Due to the production of these acids the pH of the ensiled material decreases and spoilage microorganisms are inhibited. Once the fresh material has been stacked and covered to exclude air, the ensiling process can be divided into 4 stages: Initial aerobic phase, fermentation phase, stable phase and feed-out phase or aerobic spoilage phase. Phase a : Oxygen + Sugar                  →                                 CO2 + Heat + Water (protein degraded) Phase b : Sugar                                 →   ...

BioMouldApplication: BioMould® is a ready to use preparation made of propionic acid and formic acid to preserve grains, ground grains and feed mixes. BioMould® is also safe and value for money because the costly drying process is unnecessary. The temporary storage which is normally necessary for grains is no longer required and the grains can be used immediately as feed. BioMould® is produced following a special procedure . The content material is held in micro-granules like in a sponge and is released slowly into the feed. Because the acids are found in the core of the micro-granules and not, like with other preparations, applied to the surface of the carrier material they do not come immediately into contact with the skin upon use. The carrier material Vermiculite releases the acids mainly as gas, so that the acid vapours are equally distributed throughout the product to be preserved. Moulds are killed. BioMould® steadily releases the acids during the entire storage period and therefore offers safe...
