Volatility: challenges in animal feeding

We are presently going through a challenging period of high prices of raw materials and a limited availability of some of these materials. The use of less common raw materials that are readily available, and potentially less expensive, can be an alternative to traditional protein and energy sources and may help reduce the pressure on feed costs. However, new types of ingredients need extra attention to be paid to make sure they are suitable for feed processing, are free of contaminants, and can deliver the right amount of nutrients to the animals for an optimal performance and health.

Role of acidifiers to control pathogenic microorganisms and to improve the performance of birds.

Introduction Acidifiers are combination of organic acids. Organic acid is a chemical compound from the class of fatty acids that have a pH below 7 Organic acids included in feeds in order to lower the pH of the feed, gut, & microbial cytoplasm thereby inhibiting the growth of pathogenic intestinal microflora. Decreasing the gastric [stomach] pH: Pathogenic bacteria [E.Coli, Salmonella, Streptococcus etc.] grow within the range of 6 to 8 pH. Their growth is inhibited when the pH falls below the ran...
