Nearly 54 billion pounds. That's the estimated volume of raw animal material (material not consumed by humans) generated each year, just in the United States. These animal by-products, along with many other materials including spent grains, bakery goods, fruits, vegetables, field crops, etc., can be used as ingredients in animal feed when thermally processed.
The Vulcan® Systems Animal Feed Dryer processes up to 20 tons per hour of wet animal feed. This unique system has been designed to reduce the moisture...
Birds are naturally drawn to food supplies in agricultural areas, transmitting diseases and damaging crops. Fruits, vegetables and newly-seeded and emergent crops provide an all-you-can-eat feast for birds if unchecked. Birds typically eat their body weight in food every day causing damage to crops and food storage in barns ranging from 5-50% or more!
Globally, this problem causes billions of euros of damage each year. Effective bird control is essential and farmers do anything to keep birds away from their...
With Galaxy Scientific's FT-NIR feed analyzer, technicians with no prior knowledge of spectroscopy can quickly and easily load and analyze samples of feed and feed ingredients. With just a mouse click, proximate and other important parameters will be analyzed with one measurement and in less than a minute.
The method is used for the determination of the mass fraction of total inorganic cations (ammonium potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium) in all types of feedstuffs, compound feeds, fodders, premixes, fodder additives, and feed raw materials (of plant, animal, and mineral origin) by capillary electrophoresis.
The animal feed industry produces a wide variety of feed and grains, applying different raw materials. Especially the cooling air of poultry and pig feed production should be deodorized to prevent complaints.
The method is used for the determination of the mass fraction of free choline (synthetic and natural) in feedstuffs by capillary electrophoresis. The method can be applied for all types of feedstuffs, compound feeds, fodders, premixes, fodder additives, and feed raw materials. The present method does not allow the determination of bound choline.
Measuring Oil and Moisture Content in Fish Feed using the MQC Benchtop NMR Analyser. The measurement of oil and moisture in fish feed is essential within fish farming, an important and growing industry providing high quality food for a growing global population. Fish feed is a key part of the ecology and economics of the industry making the control of the nutritional content and perceived quality of the product essential.
`A technique of growing plants in nutrient solution”. Hydroponics literally means water-working or water-activation. It is a cultivation technique for growing plants in highly oxygenated, nutrient enriched water, rather than soil. The nutrient solution and its management are the cornerstone for a successful hydroponics system. The function of a hydroponics nutrient solution is to supply the plant roots with water, oxygen and essential mineral elements in soluble form. In soil, biological decomposition breaks down...
Many states have governmental departments with diverse responsibilities in regulatory monitoring such as animal health, weights and measures, gas and oil inspection, seed and fertilizer inspection, feed analysis, crop and livestock statistics, monitoring agricultural environmental issues, as well as research and development. The key to success is a data management system powerful enough to handle all the data measured, reported and analyzed, and flexible enough to match the workflows, regulations, and rules...
Agricultural waste materials like wheat and rice straw, EFB, and bagasse etc. can be sold and used as animal feed, as fuel for kilns and small power plants. and for the production of ethanol. Unfortunately these materials are not easy to compact using traditional agricultural type balers. Macpresse balers have successfully been used in several countries, i.e. Japan, Korea, China, Sudan for transport and storage. Bale weights of up to 2 tons have been achieved.

Economical fish and shrimp production requires maximum nutritional efficiency from feed. Enzymes, including phytase, xylanase, cellulase, protease, lipase, and amylase increase the availability of nutrients, increase absorption of nutrients during digestion, increase fish growth rates, and assist in the survival and thriving of fish in the larval stage. Also, the use of lower cost feedstuffs is made possible for aquaculture with the use of added enzymes. Nutrients that are not digestible using the fish’s...
We offer a wide range of instruments for testing of ingredients and finished aquafeeds. It includes compositional analysis as well as starch gelatinization characteristics and determination of degree of cook. Aquafeed producers are faced with the difficult task of producing to the same specifications week after week, with profitability, as raw materials and their prices constantly change. The only way to succeed is to have full knowledge of your raw materials and your process. Perten Instruments offers analysis...
