Another important issue Nigeria is facing today, and for the first I witness, is the fact that corn prices in Nigeria are higher than SBM prices which is very alarming. We discussed the huge feed cost savings of using alternative cheaper energy ingredients and supplementing it with enzymes to release the hidden value of these ingredients that otherwise won't be utilized. Feed cost savings versus the typical corn-SBM diets can be astonishing and as high as 12 NGN per Kg diet with proper formulation. Please reach out to Novus Tech team and they will be more than happy to assist. In addition to that Novus is starting the Novus Graduate Student Scholars program and will be collaborating with local universities to help co duct research locally to support the feed industry in Nigeria. Trials are planned for late 2016/ early 2017.

To my friend Oukayode Anthony Makinde; I am sorry to hear about your experience. Unfortunately, some of our branded products are not available for all markets, I.e. Cibenza DE200, due to our agreements with our business partners. However, I will do my best to get you the sample needed. Please email me at nasser.odetallah@novusint.com to follow up on the project. Please be aware that I ran couple of trials on this enzyme in Nigeria few years back and I will be happy to share the fixings with you

Dear Sushil Chandra; thank you for sharing some of the key steps to monitor the quality of feed ingredients and QC points that all importers and users of feed ingredients should do. These are valuable comments.
Dear Khalil Bishawi; great to hear from you: yes, I agree, this subject is never ending and the more we monitor the raw materials the better control on the quality of feed we have. Apart from Mycotoxibs which are very critical all over the world, the topic of the meeting was more dedicated to the variability in nutrient contents of the same ingredient(s) as individual factor let alone other components. Yet, we can only do so much at a time and with all of us sharing our experiences we definitely will have a better handle on our raw material. Thanks as always for your valuable input

Every thing starting from health to maximum production revolves around the quality of raw material in feed. The ingredients play the main role in combating all issues responsible for lower production. Both quantity and quality of ingredients matter Lesser quantity even with higher quality will keep animals hungry ...Higher quantity with inferior quality will create so many other issues therefore to have maximum production any one must feed animals the required quantity of higher quality

I am a newbie in this industry based in Kaduna, Nigeria. I must confess I have learned a whole lot just reading the comments that followed the video. I happen to be resident close to raw material sources and involved in the supply of these raw materials. How can I from my end control these qualities before making a supply?

In Kenya, we have issues in getting the quantity of requisite raw materials. This results in not being able to analyse all raw materials, due to pressure to avail feeds to farmers and long turnaround time from most laboratories.
