France: use slaughter waste in animal feed
SNIV, the French meat industry association is calling for the permission to
use animal fat and slaughter waste in animal feed to counteract the crisis
ensuing from soaring feed prices.
"There are two reasons for reopening the discussion on animal feed – one is
economic – the high costs of producing meat are taking its toll on the livestock
industry", commented the SNIV. In addition, the chance of BSE is lower these days. The SNIV has based
its arguments on advice from Afassa – the natural products research organisation
in three continents – Africa, Asia and South America.
The meat industry,
however, is in favour of strict regulations regarding the usage of such waste
products in animal feed. For example, the use of bonemeal from carcasses, they
believe, should remain forbidden.
