    2020 Review: Covid-19 and Its Effect on The Feed Sector

    The Covid-19 pandemic was the main agenda for 2020. Like every sector, livestock and feed sectors have had their share of this outbreak. At the beginning of the pandemic, with the effect of panic purchases, the demand for meat, milk and fishery products increased. However, disruptions in raw material supply, logistics, and labor resources due to restrictions made it difficult for the industry to respond to consumer demands at the same pace.

    Is it possible to reduce the carbon footprint of livestock?

    About 40 percent of livestock emissions consist of enteric methane. Nitrous oxide and methane from fertilizer management are other emissions from livestock. Although it seems very difficult to control these two resources that arise as a result of a natural process, alternative solutions are also developing rapidly. Some studies are showing that changes to be made especially in the nutritional diets of animals decrease this rate.

    Energy saving in compound feed mills

    Energy saving in compound feed mills
    The energy saving measures could be different for each country depending on specific conditions such as energy price and energy regulation. Moreover, in a particular country, each feed mill should be considered like a unique case because the energy efficiency solutions proposed for a feed mill could not be the most suitable for another feed mill. In order to improve its energy efficiency, a feed mill can implement techniques which are described in Best Available Techniques reference documents. Some examples can be optimized only with steam adjustment and some of them need high precision control system with speed control devices. However, with small touch it is easy to reduce energy 5% and with a well-planned plant investment energy can be saved approximately 20%.

Companies in the agricultural and food industry...

    Life cycle assessment of feed ingredients

    Life cycle assessment of feed ingredients
    Improving sustainability of the livestock sector is essential. Life cycle assessment (LCA) studies have shown that feed production accounts for 70% of the carbon footprint of animal products which makes it an important element to account for when considering mitigation options. Improved knowledge of the environmental impact of feed ingredients is fundamental to instigate a positive change.
