As of January 2017, the FDA began a stricter regulation of antibiotics commonly used in the animal-feeding industry. Livestock and poultry producers alike have been accused of overfeeding various antibiotics, largely for growth promotion purposes (i.e., for increased feed efficiency and profitability).
The ones the medical industry and the consumer have been most concerned with are those deemed m ...

IntroductionOn average, piglet livability in Europe is 83%, ranging from 70% to 90%. It is determined by the number of still births and pre-weaning mortality in a given litter. With the increasing litter size, piglet survival is a persistent challenge to pig producers. This calls for a feeding and management strategy to improve nutrition and wellbeing of the sow in the transition phase covering la ...

IntroductionThe transition period into lactation remains one of the most challenging and important phases of the production cycle in a dairy cow. It is a transient period around calving characterised by drastic changes in the hormonal status, 2 to 5-fold (Bradford, 2020) increases in nutrient demand and apportioning of 85% of body glucose to the mammary gland. Simultaneously, the requirement for s ...

You are right, we now know methionine plays a role in hepatic lipid metabolism, and in reproduction by influencing the accumulation of fatty acids that supply energy and are essential to fertility in the endometrium. Reduction of methionine is also established as a novel cellular mechanism for regulating oxidation which is important under conditions of oxidative stress in transition cows ...

Hazem,You are right, protected amino acids are costly and there must be justifiable return on investment. I probably would not use it for cows yielding less than 8000lt. In any case, if you can determine the amount of yield of rumen microbial protein and compare that will milk output you tell whether or not the cow needs rumen protected amino acids. You also need to look at the whole diet and the ...

We in Israel use 16.2-16.7 % CP depending on MUN looking to achieve 12-16 MUN flat TMR the entiere lactation as roughage is very expensive.We do not use ruman protected amino acids but the TMR is much more diverce in protien feedstufs than the Wisconsin diet. We use soy, canola, DDGS, sunflower mill as protein sources, so we are not sure that the Mepron or AminoShure-XM can help improve nitrogen e ...
