Trouw Nutrition researchers found that adding hydroxychloride copper (IntelliBond®) to swine diets could help improve growth performance and reduce negative interactions between copper and added vitamins or enzymes. The use of high levels of copper also was found to limit the overgrowth of unwanted bacteria helping to manage gut health, increasing average daily gain (ADG) throughout production and improving hot carcass weight.
Sustainability and safeguarding the environment are key issues for the poultry industry. The industry is proactively managing its environmental obligations in the face of toughening environmental legislation and governmental initiatives, particularly where ammonia and nitrogen output is a focus.
By the end of the decade, we anticipate that insect farms will become relevant actors in the agri-food chains, upcycling lower value materials into higher value insect-derived products, for food, feed, or other applications.
Sustainable aquaculture is threatened by climate change. Here are ways climate poses a threat to shrimp and fish farming, and what the industry can do to adapt to the threat.
The ongoing positive growth trend of the aquaculture industry continues, reflecting the rising demand for healthy human food products. Availability of sustainable ingredients in fish feeds is crucial to maintain the increasing demand of the aquaculture industry and the consumers.
The challenge for our industry is to secure the supply of high quality animal protein and a balanced diet to a continuously growing global population.
