dear sir, i am happy to see a good point in the article with ref to feeding byproducts of fruits and vegetables. well we have to perhaps think how we can do it when collection of such items may be difficult except from processing plants where ever available or local collections. we have to also look to the moisture contains and bacterial loads and problems on storage and transportation etc. well if we can have some processing plants to produce the such byproduct meals dried may be some support which is difficult . I feel ruminants are to some extent ok but for mono gastric animals may be some precautions would be beneficial and how to implement in commercial way may be a challenge when less processing fruits companies are operating .
However the concept is ok and we would like to know and see more performance data on ruminant and non-ruminant with ref to which fruits materials used.
thank you sirs.
