Projects aimed at improving the feeding of broilers during and after a coccidiosis challenge through the use of functional amino acids and understanding the contribution of the gut microbiota to mucosal immunity in poultry have secured an industry research...
The inclusion of black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) in feed for pigs reduced the relative abundance of Lactobacillus in the colon, but did not affect the animal’s overall performance, finds a Norwegian study.
A low dose of functional amino acid combinations can improve performance and gut health parameters in monogastrics, namely in piglets at weaning, coccidiosis challenged birds, heard attendees at EAAP’s 2nd Amino Acid Academy in Paris last month.
A US animal scientist, based at the University of Connecticut, will examine how over-feeding of the mother during gestation causes epigenetic changes in offspring liver that ultimately affect growth, metabolism, and inflammation.
Biochar production and use is an emerging opportunity in Ireland that needs to be embraced for its full benefit to be realized in addressing a series of challenges across many of sectors including animal feed, says the Irish Bioenergy Association (IrBEA).
