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...
Abattoir & Slaughterhouse waste is a potential incubator of bacterial, viral, prion and parasitic pathogens, capable of infecting both animals and humans. A quick, cost effective and safe disposal method is essential in order to reduce the risk of disease following animal slaughter.
The animal feed industry has its roots in the way traditional millers grinded the grains centuries ago, using (wooden) windmills. Nowadays feed is produced for chickens and other poultry, as well as for cattle, pigs and horses. There is a wide variety of feed and grains produced, with different raw materials (nutrients) applied in several compositions.
In this modern era electric driven pellet mills are applied and grains are cooled mainly in counterflow coolers. To remove dust from the used cooling air usually a...

Barley grown hydroponically as a supplemental feed not only keeps dairy cattle healthy but can give premium prices from higher grades of butter fat in the milk. Each kilogram of barley fodder is equivalent nutritionally to 3kgs of lucerne. In one study of milk production, with a diet of barley fodder versus one...
In the field of energy, the industry continuously relies and depends on the supply of fossil fuels. Due to the ongoing increases of energy costs and the major dependence in relation to the production processes, an alternative energy source is advisable for the industry.
We can improve compost processes by reducing the fermentation times and eliminating the bad odours that are generated. The biodigestor ficoswaste creates a high population of microorganisms which accelerate the processes of digestion and economically optimize the composting of plants.
Magnesium is an essential nutrient for plant and animal life. It is a required element in plant photosynthesis and a necessary nutrient for animal health. Magnesium oxide (MgO) is the most commonly used source of magnesium for ruminant nutrition. It also offers an available source of magnesium for various fertilizer applications.
