Feed prices jumped to the record high and further increase is on the horizon. There are several reasons for these circumstances.

Increasing demand is due to corn use for food and feed industries and bioethanol production. The di...

I have no idea what an acidifier is, but it looks like a brilliant product. Will it work for my fish farm I have here in Paraguay? Every week the special feed goes up dramatically. I have approximately 15 000 fishes 4 months old.

Dear Mr. Hekelaar,

acidifier can be used in aquaculture and improve performance of fish. To give you more information about the product and dosage I need to know what fish species do you have
You can contact me directly:

Best regards.

Thanks a lot about the ARTICLE, it is very useful.
When we want a better FCR that mine more fish weight per food all the factors such as temperature and...... can influence it.
(It is good to discuss about these factor in rain trout).

There is not a big influence of temperature in FCR. Fish are poikilotherm animals and as such their metabolism will depend on water temperature. At higher temperatures they eat more and grow more then at lower temperatures. Nevertheless, this should not influence the efficiency of how the nutrients are utilized, they just up regulate or down regulate the metabolism (eating more or less) with temperature but the FCR or feed efficiency should remain quite constant.
Best regards.

I would like to use your acidifier for research work. Please how do I get to buy it or can I have some free sample to work with? And please what is the inclusion rate for broilers? Thanks and well done.
