Mycotoxins are produced by fungi and can lead to sickness in humans and animals, which explains why testing for them in crops, feeds, and food products is so important and is often a regulatory and customer requirement. Fortunately, testing technologies have evolved from slow, tedious, and complicated to smart, fast, and data connected. Tests vary in their performance capabilities and suitability for field, process, or lab environments. With a number of different options, you may be...

Alin Khaliduzzaman (University of Illinois Urbana Champaign)      Some of the continents and countries might suffer severe food shortage in the next few decades due to climate changes, global unrest, and economic instability. Therefore, we need major technological advancement for egg and poultry production industry to deal with global animal food security and poultry welfare issues. The current hatchery practices, post-hatch grading of day-old chicks,...

Diego Martínez (University of Arkansas)       An energy system is needed to optimize feed formulation and influence economics and sustainability. This study assessed the sensitivity of productive energy (PE) and classic net energy (CNE) to BW gain (BWG), feed conversion ratio (FCR), and net energy for gain (NEg) and maintenance (NEm), and developed models to predict BWG, FCR, and protein accretion (PAC). 1920 chicks in 96 pens were assigned to one...

INTRODUCTION Maize (Zea mays) is one of the main sources for food and feed production in the world (Chulze, 2010). In 2017, more than 197 million hectares were grown with maize worldwide resulting in production yield of 1.13 billion tons of maize (FAOSTAT, 2020). Ensuring the quality and safety of maize for feed and food production is essential. One of the major quality and safety concerns is infection of the maize plants with fungi and the contamination of maize kernels with...

Nelson Ruiz (Nelson Ruiz Nutrition LLC)     A set of 24 solvent extracted commercial soybean meal (CSBM) samples, which corresponded to the same lots of CSBM used in the field, were evaluated. The CSBM were from different origins (Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay, Trinidad & Tobago, U.S.). The objective herein was to evaluate the relationship between KOH protein solubility (KOHPS, a measurement of overprocessing) and trypsin inhibitor activity (TIA, a...

I. INTRODUCTION Nutrient requirements are established by means of dose-response studies. Data is subjected to appropriate regression analysis and the level needed to maximise a given response (body weight gain, feed efficiency, carcass yield, etc.,) is defined as ‘requirement’. The estimates are compiled as ‘tables of nutrient requirement’ e.g., NRC, CVB, Brazilian Tables, nutrition guides by the genetic suppliers, and are used by field nutritionists as...

I. INTRODUCTION In the 1990s, researchers from the American Soybean Association (ASA) showed that soybean meal with similar proximate analysis can perform very differently in poultry and swine feeding. Subsequently, Creswell and Swick (2008) carried out feeding trials, AME and digestible amino acid analysis of 4 soybean meals. They found that there was a large difference between the soybean meals in BWG and FCR from the broiler feeding trials as well as in AME and digestible lysine....

I. INTRODUCTION Feeding the world’s projected burgeoning human population increase of 2.2 billion people by 2050 will place tremendous pressure on food security. The poultry industry is innovative and well positioned to address this problem through increased efficiency and waste reduction. Globally, 32% (by weight) of produced food − equivalent to 1.3 billion tons − is lost or wasted every year. Conversion of food waste into raw materials for production of poultry...

I. INTRODUCTION In Australia, the cost of tallow and vegetable oil has more than doubled over the past two years (www.finvis.com), prompting broiler nutritionists to re-evaluate dietary energy content for meat-type chickens. Globally, a wide range of lipids with diverse chemical composition, are routinely included in poultry feed including soapstocks or acid oil, crude vegetable oil, hydrogenated material, recycled vegetable oil, restaurant grease, animal tallows and even products...

I. INTRODUCTION The quality of poultry feed and litter are important for maintaining and improving poultry production. Poultry feed (raw materials and formulated diet) is highly variable and large safety margins are needed to buffer the nutritional variability in feed ingredients when formulating diets (Moss et al., 2021). Feed ingredients delivered to feed mills are not comprehensively analysed using current methods (i.e., wet-chemistry and NIR). This is because the large quantities...

INTRODUCTION Fusarium verticillioides has long been known to be a causal agent of maize ear rot but has received more attention since the discovery that fumonisins, the mycotoxins it produces, can accumulate in maize kernels (Gelderblom et al., 1988). Fumonisin consumption can lead to serious disorders in humans and animals; for example, leukoencephalomalacia in horses and pulmonary edema in swine, both are accompanied by injuries to the liver and heart; hepatic necrosis and,...
