    Growth while Reducing Environmental Impact

    The livestock and animal feed industry plays a vital role in our global food security and nutrition. However, its significant environmental impacts such as greenhouse gas emissions, land use, water pollution and biodiversity loss cannot be ignored. In this month's issue, we will look at the environmental footprint of the livestock and feed industry and explore some of the efforts being made to ensure the sustainability of this critical industry and reduce its environmental impact. In recent years, important steps have been taken to reduce the carbon footprint of the livestock sector. Researchers...

    The role of animal health in supporting livestock sustainability and helping meet climate goals

    Close to ten years ago, every country in the world came together to develop a shared ‘blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.’ The outcome was 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that would guide global efforts to build a society that can deliver continued progress for generations to come. Since then, the world has dramatically accelerated efforts to strengthen sustainability across industries. For the livestock sector, this offered an opportunity...

    French feed additive company Nuqo expands with new affiliates

    Affiliates in regions like Thailand, Mexico, and India play a critical role in our growth, serving as regional hubs. This strategic positioning has been a significant factor in our remarkable expansion. However, even with our global reach, we remain humble and acknowledge that our organization has not yet reached its full maturity in some major markets, indicating room for improvement. Our strategy is clear, and our organization remains flexible,...

    Feed Yeast and Global Market Status

    Feed yeast is considered to be an important segment in the global feed additive market due to the critical role it plays in enhancing the antimicrobial activity of the gut and promoting animal growth by improving gut microbiota. Better understanding of such benefits provided by yeasts is supporting the market expansion. Based on estimates by research firms, the global feed yeast market is projected to have a size of approximately USD 2 billion in 2024. Expectations also indicate that the market will reach a size of around USD 2.8 billion in 2030. By Derya Yildiz Yeast, a single-celled microorganism, is classified...

    Reducing ammonia in poultry production with CRISPR-Cas

    Some of the most environmentally damaging gases produced in agriculture, such as ammonia and methane, are produced by the microbes that live within farmed animals. Current strategies for reducing emissions are dependent on careful management of diet and litter/manure...

    Harnessing seaweed’s power to slash livestock methane emissions at scale

    CH4 Global, a US-headquartered company with operations in Australia and New Zealand, is pioneering a new era of low-methane beef and dairy production. The company’s flagship feed additive, Methane Tamer™, leverages the power of Asparagopsis seaweed to deliver a...

    From China to Cornell: Propelling Innovation in Methane Emission Reduction

    The work in China and the US is part of a wider global program of investment in sustainability and targeting emissions reduction in ruminants. Alongside the work undertaken with research and Government organisations, Cargill has also invested in GreenFeed...

    Saving 1 ton of CO2e per cow per year with Bovaer®

    On average we see a 30% reduction of methane emissions from dairy cattle, and 45% for beef feedlot cattle. For a typical dairy cow this translates into 1-ton CO2e saved per cow per year. To date we have enabled...

    Unlocking ruminant potential with Volac

    Not only must we carefully measure and reduce our own environmental footprint, but we must also develop market-leading solutions to help our customers meet their climate targets too if we are to thrive as a cutting-edge animal nutrition business...

    Next Generation Lome: An additive for the masses

    By focusing on scalability, cost-effectiveness, and transparency, additives such as Lome™ are set to make a major impact on methane reduction and help beef and dairy companies hit their climate goals. But beyond that, it's exciting to see more...

    Poultry Under Pressure: Understanding & combating thermal stress

    Heat stressed poultry need to dissipate excess body heat and will exhibit certain behaviors to indicate that they are overheated. Poultry will exhibit increased panting as the most common sign. Birds experiencing heat stress often have increased water consumption...

    The role of environmental assessment in driving efficiency, profitability and sustainability

    Assessing GHGs allows farmers to pinpoint hotspots and trade-offs within their operations, facilitating efficiency improvements. By understanding the interdependency of variables such as feed cultivation and utilization, energy consumption and waste management, farmers can make informed decisions that resonate...

    Pet food industry’s role in sustainability – Blueprint for sustainable pet food protein sourcing

    The pet food industry is an integral part of the global food system and has a large impact on the environment, particularly with regards to protein sourcing. The Pet Sustainability Coalition's Blueprint provides a comprehensive guide to responsibly sourcing animal proteins, addressing...

    A holistic approach to sustainability from calf to 5th lactation – Responsible mineral nutrition at all stages

    Responsible mineral nutrition is important at all life stages, from calf through the fifth lactation. Many producers are overfeeding key trace elements. Formulating diets with trace minerals that meet the animal’s nutritional requirements and are highly bioavailable inside the animal helps producers...

    Inside a yeast plant: Producing quality live yeast for animal nutrition

    Yeast is one of the most used microorganisms in the food industry due to its exceptional fermentative capacity. But not all yeasts are equal. There are thousands of different yeast strains in nature, each with its own genetic and metabolic characteristics. These characteristics will impact the properties...

    Innovative approach to develop effective feed ingredients

    Understanding the modes of action of various feed ingredients, identifying the gaps, and developing synergistic ingredient combinations provides an innovative approach to improve magnitude and consistency in animal performance benefits. A unique combination of postbiotic Saccharomyces cerevisiae fermentation product and a proprietary blend of seven different essential...

    Enhancing feed palatability with sensory additives

    Key ingredients in animal nutrition, and for livestock in particular, the aromatic properties of sensory additives help to enhance feed palatability. By extension, they also contribute to ration optimisation, in addition to cost control and animal well-being more generally. Herbarom, a French expert in natural ingredients for...

    Novel immunomodulators in aquaculture

    Due to the negative impact of antibiotics, there is a need to develop eco-friendly alternatives to control or prevent the bacterial infections in aquaculture. At this point, immunostimulants appear to be the most promising and useful tools for the prophylactic treatment of farmed fish and shrimp. It...
