Ruminant livestock generate a significant proportion of anthropogenic GHG emissions, and thereby contribute to Climate Change. Ruminants such as cattle. sheep, goats and buffalo produce meat and milk through enteric fermentation – a digestive process in which microbes decompose and ferment food in the digestive tract or rumen. This process produces methane which is emitted via belching. The amount of methane produced is directly related to the type of food consumed and the level of intake, in addition to...
A crusher bucket MB-C50 was used, mounted on a Kobelco, to reduce all inert material brought out from the plant, as the main goal was to access the interior to have a perspective of the future development.
We engineer and supply innovative technological solutions to improve fruit and vegetable cultivations and animal breeding. Our commitment is to a healthier, safer condition of all the actors involved in the agri-food chain (farmers, plants, animals, consumers) increasing the quantity and quality of food available, while at the same time reducing pesticide contaminations on products and in the environment.
BCMbio™ is dedicated to providing a full range of microbial solutions to the agriculture, horticulture and turf management marketplaces. A rich, biologically active soil is fundamental to building a sustainable agricultural system. Our soil specific strains are designed to improve soil quality, increase plant health and provide a cleaner, larger yield at harvest.
Traditional animal feed ingredients are primarily produced from corn, cereals, and wheat, and although those components provide much-needed nutrients for the animal, they are difficult to completely digest. If ignored, undigested food can cause weight loss, diarrhea, decreased production of bile, over-production of stomach acid and even mortality.
Rendering is a process that converts waste animal tissue into stable, value-added materials. Edible rendering processes are basically meat processing operations and produce lard or edible tallow for use in food products. Edible rendering is generally carried out in a continuous process at low temperature (less than the boiling point of water). The process usually consists of finely chopping the edible fat materials (generally fat trimmings from meat cuts), heating them with or without added steam, and then...
Our UV water disinfection technology is used in fish farms, mussel farms, aquariums and hatcheries. The benefits of UV disinfection has led to the production of healthier and larger fish, improved water quality, possible increases in stock density and vastly reduces the risk of disease. UV light is a chemical free treatment that cannot be overdosed, ensuring the physical characteristics of the water, such as PH levels and temperature, remain unchanged whilst avoiding the introduction of harmful toxins, such as...
The University of Illinois Animal Sciences Department study has found that one 1,400 pound dairy cow produces 115 pounds of manure per day and approximately 21 tons per year. In fact, a dairy with 1000 animals is equivalent to the waste produced by a city of 164,500 people*. Handling all that waste is not only a health issue for animals but also draws the attention of many governmental agencies that want to limit any potential downstream exposure of groundwater contamination.
The agriculture industry is a water intensive industry that needs a constant contaminant free water supply to ensure high harvest yields and healthy farm livestock. Agriculture in the U.S. is dominated by large, specialized crop and animal farms. These industrial farms focus on short-term productivity, often at the cost of creating environmental and public health problems. This focus on short term productivity, requires agriculture water treatment solutions and specific soil additives that are sustainable and...
Alfalfa is a crop of the legume family and its scientific name is Medicago sativa. Alfalfa is a perennial plant of erect growth and is one of the most extended forage crops within temperate climate countries.
The method is used for the determination of the mass concentration of oxalic, formic, fumaric, succinic, malic, citric, acetic, propionic, lactic, benzoic, sorbic, butyric acids in fodder additives and butyric acid in silage and haylage by capillary electrophoresis.
Ammonia (NH3) is formed from the breakdown of urea in slurry and manure, and hence this is the main source of NH3 emission in the UK. High levels of NH3 emissions can cause a large amount of environmental damage to vegetation. As well as the outward environmental impact, high NH3 concentrations in and around livestock enclosures have a detrimental effect on the health and well-being of the animals.
Nowadays, with the increasing demand of aquatic products, fish farming industry appears rapid development situation. Thus people are dedicated to select a better diet for fish so as to ensure that edible fish can meet food hygienic standard for us to eat. The scientific research proves that feed pellets made by aquatic feed pellet mill is a wise choice, which makes more and more raisers turn to aquatic feed pellets production and seek for more profits in the related industry.

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 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.
The method is used for the determination of the mass fraction of ascorbic acid and its salts in food additives and fodder additives (feed additives).The present method does not allow the determination of ascorbic acid in premixes.For the determination of acetic, benzoic, butyric, citric, formic, fumaric, lactic, malic, oxalic, propionic, sorbic, and succinic acids in fodder additives and butyric acid in silage and haylage use the method М 04-74-2012 (Lumex Instruments set, order No 0300001897).
Generally, feed for pigs including powdery feed and pellets feed. As for powdery feed, it has two major feeding methods. One is dry feeding, in this method, if the powder is fine, it will affect the food intake of pigs to some extent; on the contrary, if the powder is coarse, the utilization rate of the feed may be influenced. The other is wet feeding, that is mixing the feed with water together which is not suitable for scientific feeding due to the reduction of food intake. Compared to powdery feed, pellet feed...
