John Wills, PhDHi John! Yes I totally agree that cheap will not work! Nothing better than intact protein from soybean meal (when sustainably produced) balanced with minor amounts of added amino acids to meet the ideal digestible amino acids requirements. All the best! Bob

1.BackgroundThe impact on the environment, welfare issues, as well as the economic implications are challenging globally the modern livestock production. Employment of new nutritional strategies to limit the impact of the livestock production on the environment, have become an important task.Optimization in the feed formulation lowering the crude protein content, for the so-called N-reduced feedin ...

Dear Dr. Stringhini et al., in my assessment your data on soybean meal quality are very interesting. Based on our experience, and considering also several reports in the scientific literature, the range of adequacy for KOH protein solubility in soybean meal is in the range of 80-85%. Your data based on the analysis of 283 samples from the commercial reality show that 52.64% of the samples or 189 o ...

Syed Farjad Zaidi The optimum particle size for about 5-8% of the total diet should be about 1200 microns. Include only 3% course ground corn in starter feed to allow birds condition their gut, and then increase this to about 5% in the grower diet, and up to 8% in the finisher diet. This will help the bird condition their gizzard, which is the pace-setter for gut motility and intestinal function ...

Generally, a good review, as Dave indicated. Vegetable source proteins have their own “problems” as do animal sources. Bear in mind the “ease” of using one or the other exclusively depends on the animal. Herbivores employ a rumen or cecum with microbes doing the “work” to provide a “balanced” protein. Carnivores have adapted to optimize use of flesh, ...

Good summary article, but take care, grain and soya products also have a host of problems like the meat products cited. I have fed broilers no meat product diets for 20 years and there are problems with these grain, soybean meal, canola meal, pea protein, isolated protein sources, millet and sorghum based diets. Excellent nutrition is required for successful animal production with either type of ...

The article was written as per applications in ruminant production systems. I know, by experience, that producers have "overfed" antibiotics for years. Not from the standpoint of feeding higher levels that legally allowed but in situations where it may not have been necessary. I.e. feeding it as a form of insurance. Personally, no, I don't believe that fed antibiotics, particularly in ruminants ha ...

Many thanks for all the kind and thought provoking comments! @Prof. Donzele, I agree that other the immune system requirements for other 'non-essential' amino acids should also be considered (as my review was already rather lengthy this was not really covered). This is definitely a topic to investigate further when formulating diets for challenging conditions.
