Challenge models can be useful in predicting feed conversion ratios and methane emission rates, says a leading nutritionist at VIV Europe. 

We caught up with Jannes Doppenberg, a nutrition expert at the Netherlands-based, Schothorst Feed Research (SFR), to hear about some of the work done at the facility on feed additive trials.

He told us that organic acids can be effective in boosting feed intake and reducing CO2 emissions.

And Doppenberg notes the growing demand for gut health promoters as replacements for therapeutic antibiotics, particularly in the pig and broiler sectors, which are under strong pressure to reduce their reliance on medicated feed.

The SFR is used by feed ingredient suppliers to generate independent trials on additives in order to meet EU regulatory dossier requirements.
