Good animal performance starts with a well-balanced and optimized diet which suits the animal needs. Once the diet is formulated it is of paramount importance to preserve the quality, efficacy, and performance of feed until the moment it is consumed by the animal. Deviations between the theoretical formulated diet and the one fed to the animal, have a vast impact on animal health and performance, profitability, safety, and sustainability.
Preservation of feed and feed ingredients considers the following important steps:
During these steps, quality preservation demands to act on 3 levels: limit microbial load, maintain chemical stability, and optimize physical properties of raw materials and feeds.
Mold-Nil® is a range of mold inhibitors which are made with a unique synergistic blend of active ingredients to combat molds and yeasts. The quality of feed and feed material is determined by its composition and its microbiological load. Especially the number of mould spores is an important factor. A mould inhibition program in line with the storage conditions and the nutrient availability is key to minimize post-harvest mould growth and mycotoxin production.
Salmo-Nil® is an organic acid based product range that reduces the patoghenic pressure in the feed and food-chain and prevent the horizontal transmission.
The control of foodborn pathogens in the animal industry is one of the major challenges. Due to its complexity, several measurements need to be taken to reduce contamination, growth and survival whereas feed sanitation is an important pillar.
Oxy-Nil® covers a complete antioxidant program to prevent losses due to autoxidation of raw materials and final products. Selecting the correct raw materials and their quality is the key to success when producing safe and high-quality feeds. It is therefore essential that raw materials, concentrates and feeds are not subjected to nutritional damage caused by autoxidation.
Evacide® prevents the horizontal transmission of foodborne pathogens through drinking water. Water is a key, but often forgotten nutrient in the dietary requirements of an animal. It is also an important vehicle for (enteric) pathogens and their horizontal transmission to livestock and poultry. Acidifying drinking water increases animal performance and lowers the pathogenic pressure.
Nutri®-Bind is a complete range of low inclusion pellet binders who support qualitative feed production. Modern approach to feed production requires high quality feed with an excellent visual quality (good appearance, dust-free, without cracks and uniform) as well as a superior technical quality (correct hardness and optimal durability).
