Introduction In developing countries, the poultry industry is experiencing some critical issues with animal feed prices, which are unpredictable in the current scenario, as raw ingredients, primarily corn and soybean, have been increasing in price day by day (Alagawany and Attia 2015). As a result, there is a need to consider some low-cost resources, such as agricultural by-products and other crops, which are significantly less expensive than conventional feed stuff. As a result,...

1. Introduction Infectious bronchitis (IB) and Newcastle disease (ND) are highly transmissible diseases that cause substantial economic losses in the poultry industry [1, 2]. Infectious bronchitis is caused by infectious bronchitis virus (IBV), a gammacoronavirus with a single-stranded positive sense RNA genome [3]. Newcastle disease is caused by virulent strains of Newcastle disease virus (NDV), a paramyxovirus with a single-stranded negative sense RNA genome [4]. Infectious...

Introduction Creatine (essential for energy metabolism) and glutathione (GSH; an important non-enzymatic antioxidant) are major metabolites of glycine [the simplest amino acid (AA)] in animals (Fig.  1). Specifically, arginine:glycine amidinotransferase (AGAT) and guanidinoacetate N-methyltransferase (GAMT) convert glycine into creatine in the presence of arginine and methionine, whereas γ-glutamylcysteine synthetase and glutathione synthetase catalyze the formation of GSH...

1. Introduction Increased atmospheric emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs), such as nitrous oxide (N 2 O), carbon dioxide (CO 2 ), and methane (CH 4 ), are the primary cause of climate change. These emissions result in unpredictable and erratic rainfall, floods, and droughts [1]. In 2020, agriculture contributed 5865.47 MtCO 2 e, representing 12.34% of its total emissions (47,513.15 MtCO 2 e), including land-use change and forestry...

4.1 Introduction The metabolism of most nutrients in domestic dogs and cats is similar to that in other mammals (Baker and Czarnecki-Maulden 1991). Thus, the qualitative dietary requirements of dogs and cats for most nutrients [e.g., amino acids (AAs) that are not formed de novo in animal cells] are similar to those for omnivores (e.g., humans and pigs). However, dogs and cats have a relatively short digestive tract (He et al. 2024) and have evolved to have some unique feeding...

Rendering: The Sustainable Solution
Rendering is a vital part of sustainable agricultural production. Renderers take the parts of animals that North Americans choose not to utilize and make them into valuable products like livestock feed, pet food, biofuel, fertilizer, and other industrial products. The truth about rendering is much different than you may have been told....

INTRODUCTION Maize (Zea mays L.) is a staple food in many parts of the world including sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). In Nigeria and some other West African countries, it is traditionally transformed by submerged fermentation to ogi – a complementary weaning food for infants and young children, convenient food for the sick, convalescent and elderly or quick breakfast mostly for those living in rural areas characterized by low income (Onyekwere et al., 1989; Steinkraus,...

Introduction Modern maize, belonging to the genus Zea, was domesticated in southern Mexico 9000 years ago from wild, annual tropical grasses called teosintes, with the primary ancestor being Parviglumis (Zea mays ssp. parviglumis) which survives today in the wild (Matsuoka et al., 2002). There are additional species of teosintes that continue to grow in the wild in Mexico and Central America including the perennial Zea diploperennis (Iltis and Doebley, 1980). Following its...

Short Answer: Rendering is Recycling It’s a process that repurposes co-products(also called by-products) that would otherwise go to waste from the “meat we don’t eat.” By rendering specific materials that many North American consumers would consider inedible, such as certain fats, bones and proteins, renderers provide...

Rendering involves repurposing animal co-products that would otherwise be discarded. It converts the parts of a meat animal we choose not to eat into stable, usable materials such as fuel, pet food, and livestock feed, creating a highly sustainable alternative. Below, learn more about products made from rendered materials in detail. You can discover...
