In the 10th edition of All About Feed we review different mixer types. The frequency of feed in modern dairy cows is considered, and we talk to Piet van der Aar, Director of Research and Business Development at Schothorst Feed Research, about the future of feed research.
Animal feed manufacturing entails numerous steps whereby individual ingredients are combined into a homogeneous mix. One of the most important steps is mixing. In this article on page 18 we review different mixer types.
The frequency of feed in modern dairy cows affects feed intake, digestion, health, hormones, milk production, resistance to thermal stress and economic returns. In this article on page 12 we take a closer look at each of these aspects in response to feeding frequency.
It is known that algae benefit broilers. In this article on page 26, Matthew Wedzerai takes a closer look at choline chloride supplementation in hen diets to better understand its complementary effects.
All About Feed editor, Marieke Ploegmakers, talks to Piet van der Aar, Director of Research and Business Development at Schothorst Feed Research, about the challenges currently facing the feed industry, key research topics in the coming years, and the future of feed research. Read more on page 7.
A study on the biological detoxification of mycotoxins into non-toxic metabolites, which is discussed on page 25, could be a significant strategy to reduce exposure to mycotoxins.
Perhaps generic pic of mycotoxins?
Biotransforming agents could be used to detoxify mycotoxins by bio-fermentation from raw materials of feed.
Greater resistance and robustness of the animals together with the application of good management practices make it possible to avoid preventative antibiotics. We take a closer look at the details on page 30.
