There are fish feed raw materials: Bran chaff feed, oil cake feed, amphibious plant feed, pomace feed, cereal feed, animal feed, compound feed. For more information, please click the following ...

  • The nutritional assessment of GMOs before commercialisation, how to approach a comprehensive assessment

    Using the in vitro gas production technique - which evaluate nutritive value of ruminants feeds - the fermentation kinetics of genetically modified (GM) corn and the gas production of GM soybean were respectively faster and lower compared to their respective conventional counterpart, although the chemical composition were not affect by the genetic modification. Concerning the fate of vegetable ...

  • Flexitarianism: a more moral dietary option

    It is morally impossible to justify the power wielded by the livestock industry. This paper describes the human, ecological and animal welfare concerns caused by excessive meat production and consumption, including climate change, water depletion and degradation, land misappropriation and degradation, rainforest destruction, biodiversity and rapid species loss and the significant threats and ...

  • Let the kids go wild outdoors

    A number of international studies have shown that children in developed nations spend an average of 55 hours a week indoors using electronics. Even though this means that the youth in these countries are techno-savvy, it often results in them spending less and less time outdoors. How do we change this, and get our kids to experience the wonders of nature, develop creativity and learn to ...

  • Considerations on the importance of nutrition habits for the national nitrogen balance of Austria

    The anthropogenic nitrogen turnover of Western societies is highly unbalanced. As a consequence, a permanent supply of nitrogen via mineral fertiliser (produced with high energy inputs) and/or imported fodder are required and result in significant impacts of nitrogen emissions on the environment (air, water, soil). Key factors to an improved nitrogen balance on a national scale are the nutrition ...

  • Supplementation strategies effects on performance of beef heifers grazing stockpiled pastures

    The increased cost of inputs has led livestock producers in the southeastern United States to use alternative management practices to supplement beef cattle (Bos spp.) on pastures. The objective of this study was to evaluate the performance of beef heifers grazing stockpiled limpograss [Hemarthria altissima (Poir.) Stapf & C.E. Hubb.] pastures supplemented with cottonseed meal (CSM, Gossypium ...

  • Animal and pasture productivity of ‘coastal’ and ‘tifton 44’ bermudagrass at three nitrogen rates and associated soil nitrogen status

    Coastal’ and ‘Tifton 44’ (T44) bermudagrass [Cynodon dactylon (L.) Pers.] are well adapted across the lower southern United States, but the grazing response of (T44) to N application in the Piedmont of the upper South warrants further evaluation. This 3-yr experiment compared animal and pasture productivity of Coastal and T44 with three annual N rates of 101, 202, and 303 kg of N ha–1 on a Cecil ...

  • FTL with feed-forward optimal design by discrete event production simulator with GA

    This article formulates a new optimal design problem of a flexible transfer line with feed-forward lines (FTL-FF). The machine tools and the buffer size are included to find the optimal design of the FTL-FF that achieves a greater production rate of the FTL-FF. Machine tools with different performances are selected from a list of products available in the market. To solve this problem, a discrete ...

  • Autophagy in the eukaryotic cell

    The major cellular pathways for protein and organelle turnover are autophagy and proteasome-mediated degradation. These processes are important to maintain a well-controlled balance between anabolism and catabolism in order to have normal cell growth and development. They play an essential role during starvation, cellular differentiation, cell death, and aging but also in preventing some types of ...
