Niyi Balogun Agreed, The inclusion rates of the full fat soya you suggest could be somewhat problematic in pelleted feeds particularly in cases where desirable pellet durability index is 90% or higher. Similarly, such high amounts would not be ideal in starter rations for broilers as the chick GIT is not fully developed to deal with the imbedded oil in the full fat soya. When using full fat soya, ...

A couple of quick remarks on this topic. When phytic acid is hydrolysed by phytase and the mucosal phosphatases in the intestine the only two direct products of this are myo-inositol and phosphate. We have measured the appearance of both of these in multiple experiments and this is clear evidence of phytase efficacy and its compatibility with endogenous phosphatases in the intestine. All additiona ...

In reference to calcium, the enzyme makes more available what is already supplied by the ingredients but it cannot add something that does not contain. So, if we work our formulations based on total calcium, I tend to agree with Rami Sebai that the phytase enzyme must not have a calcium value.On the other hand, if we formulate for available calcium, as we do with phosphorus, we should include a ca ...

In some companies, fertility and hatchability start to decrease during the last weeks of production, for example after 50 weeks, at the same time there is a loss of feathers in the back or there is an overweight of the egg. How can we improve fertility and hatchability in the last phase of production of broiler breeders? To improve fertility and hatchability we must evaluate three important points ...

Essential amino acids appear to be the most efficient nutrient for the stimulation of muscle protein synthesis in older and younger subjects, though the cellular mechanisms responsible are under investigation. In addition to being the precursors for protein synthesis, essential amino acids may directly stimulate the synthetic process. Among the essential amino acids, branched chain amino acids ...

INTRODUCTION Breeder nutrition is most often evaluated in terms of egg numbers and hatchability, with relatively scant regard to broiler performance. Within an integrated broiler operation, it is of course broiler growth characteristics that have the greatest impact on economics of poultry meat production, yet there is often disconnect between breeder and broiler nutrition. To some extent, this ...

Good job; the value of feed enzyme as pro-nutrient feed additive is well, perhaps better quantified by growth perfromance and mechanisticaaly so by digestibility. The ability to find and evolve the next generation of feed enzymes will be driven by understanding of target substrates and the implications to the animal nutrition. However, the gut is populated with diverse assemblage of microbiota (bi ...

Pet Food ProductionCommercial extrusion processing of food products has been practiced for over 60 years. The screw extruder was first used as a continuous cooking device in the late 1930’s. The first commercial application of this extrusion cooking process was in the mid 1940’s. The end product was direct-expanded corn meal snacks. Today, the extrusion cooker has become the primary continuous coo ...
