Dried grape pomace provides a cheaper alternative fiber source for beef feedlot cattle and may improve growth performance and carcass attributes compared to traditional feed ingredients, researcher say.
Researchers are developing a tool to provide an economic and environmental assessment of novel ingredients to support the use of new fish feeds that are nutritionally adequate and have little environmental effect.
Feeding insoluble fiber better promotes growth performance and nutrient digestibility in piglets in the first two weeks post-weaning compared to soluble fiber, found China based animal scientists, in a new paper.
Fluker Farms is seeking to establish its legacy by developing a pilot black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) program; it is also working with Louisiana State University (LSU) to improve campus sustainability.
A broiler study showed that a 22–23 g/kg reduction in the crude protein (CP) content of grower and finisher diets, with adequate supplementation of essential amino acids, did not result in adverse effects on growth performance and slaughter yields.
Applying a precision feeding system to broiler breeder flocks or poultry production limits greenhouse gas emissions and may provide producers a way to reduce feed use while providing each bird individualized nutrition.
A meta-analysis of Asia-based research indicates that fermented feed ingredients such as soybean meal or rapeseed meal boost the growth performance of weaner and grower pigs, while fermented feed additives promote pig’s growth at all stages.
