04 February 2020- Late last year, Dutch farmers got mad. Extremely mad. 1,100-km-traffic-jam, smashing-down-the-door-of-the-provincial legislature mad. The farmers were reacting to new measures which were the country’s response to a ruling by the country’s Council of State, its highest court, which earlier in the year had found that the Netherlands were in violation of rules [...]

27 January 2020 - The 2020 Alltech Global Feed Survey* estimates that international feed tonnage in 2019 decreased by 1.07% to 1.126 billion tonnes, due largely to African swine fever (ASF) and its negative effects on pig feed output in the Asia-Pacific region and China.

INTERVIEW: The Virtues of Self-Regulation, According to US’s National Animal Supplement Council

By |2020-01-16T07:35:45+00:00January 16th, 2020|

08 January 2020 - Perhaps, many years ago, it was simple to tell “animal nutrition” products from “animal health” products. If it provided nutrition, taste, aroma, or technical effects, it was feed; if it served to diagnose, prevent, treat, cure, or mitigate a disease, it was a drug. You could look at the product's labelling [...]

INTERVIEW: Why Grow Yeast on Tree Waste? To Address N. Europe’s Protein Deficit

INSIGHT: Strain Improvement Will Be Key to Enabling Large-Scale Use of Microalgae, as NAM Demonstrates

By |2019-12-13T11:02:12+00:00December 13th, 2019|

There are many reasons to think that microalgae will be an extremely valuable feed ingredient. First of all, they appear to have a highly interesting nutritional profile. Second, they will likely have a lighter ecological footprint than other feed ingredients, because they will not require fertile land and thus will not compete with food crops. [...]

INTERVIEW: Tryptophan Alone Might Not Deal With Fish Stress, but Anti-Inflammatory Diets Might Help

By |2019-12-04T10:10:15+00:00December 4th, 2019|

03 December 2019- How do you deal with a stressed-out fish? Years ago, the question might have seemed ludicrous. Today, with millions of euros in living inventory undergoing wrenching shocks as fish pass from freshwater to saltwater environments or enduring physically rough treatments for sea lice or vaccinations, it is a question that many have [...]
