Exclusive Open Day offers on the full range of new and used KEENAN diet feeders. Attendees will have the opportunity to view KEENAN’s complete range of diet feeders and speak with a member of the sales team on the day about KEENAN's new service contracts.
Selenium has been recognised as an essential trace mineral for all animals, with the functions of maintaining growth performance, redox potential, reproduction, antioxidants and immunomodulation to name but a few. Since most feed ingredients are selenium deficient, additional supplementation in feed formulation is usually necessary.
Testing shows that the greatest mycotoxin risk in European total mixed rations comes from Penicillium mycotoxins. A proper mycotoxin control programme during the forage storage period reduces the level of risk.
Mycotoxins are naturally occurring, toxic secondary metabolites produced by fungi that can be found in feedstuffs such as cereal grains and their byproducts. Mycotoxins can occur prior to harvest as well as after harvest, during transport and during storage.
The dairy industry is facing a complex challenge to keep up efficiency in producing dairy products while protecting profitability, assuring the commitment to work together to collectively reduce methane emissions, meeting animal welfare requirements, and constantly adapt to new regulations and laws.
When it comes to trace minerals, poultry producers have a variety of options. Trace minerals can be offered in the form of inorganic mineral salts, such as carbonates, sulfates and oxides. Alternatively, they can be offered as mineral salts bound to organic ligands, such as proteins or individual amino acids; these types of minerals are referred to as organic minerals.
With constant changes in feed and ingredient prices, as well as the fact that feed costs typically represent the largest input costs, on-farm profitability often depends strongly on how well the dairy herd is converting feed to milk. To maximise feed efficiency, we must improve overall digestibility and nutrient utilisation.
Jorge Delgado, the training and talent development for dairy workers manager at Alltech offers the following ways to make employee training presentations more fun and engaging.
Microbuild is an innovative prebiotic that nurtures the gut health and overall well-being of pets. Even during bacterial challenges, Microbuild works to increase microbial diversity in the gut, boosting the animal’s natural defenses.
Inclusion rate: 0.4–1.6 lb./ton for all classes of pets
Better stool quality for better pet health
Proper functioning of the intestine in pets is a key factor in health and longevity. Microbuild harnesses the power of prebiotics, specialized fibers that promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut. These fibers help the animal maintain its intestinal integrity and develop a healthy immune system.
Microbuild is based on the leading-edge science of nutrigenomics, which studies the unique relationship between genetics and nutrition. Its specific yeast strain, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, has been specifically selected and isolated by Alltech scientists for maximum efficacy in promoting intestinal health. A cost-efficient, safe and traceable technology, Microbuild can help any animal realize its full genetic potential, supporting optimal development and health across the lifespan.
