Activated Carbon in the Animal Industry

Activated carbon is a carbonaceous, highly porous adsorptive medium that has a complex structure composed of carbon atoms. The network of pores in activated carbons are channels created within a rigid Skelton of disordered layers of carbon atoms, linked together by chemical bonds, stacked unevenly, creating a highly porous structure of nooks, crannies, cracks and crevices between the carbon Layers.

Electrolytes Through Feed: A Preferred Approach

Electrolytes play a crucial role in maintaining body’s acid-base balance as well as osmotic pressure in body fluids. The role of each individual component present in electrolyte supplement is difficult to define without taking into consideration the rest of the elements

Sub-Acute Ruminal Acidosis: Development and Prevention

Sub-acute ruminal acidosis (SARA), also known as chronic or sub-clinical acidosis, is causing production losses in most dairy herds. Reports suggest high prevalence of SARA in high yielding dairy herds as they are fed with higher grain, lower fiber diets that maximize energy intake during early lactation.

DEB; Implications on Heat Stressed Broilers

Primary role of an electrolyte supplement lies in maintenance of the body's ionic and water balance. Proper electrolyte source, its amount and combination are very important to have an appropriate Dietary Electrolyte Balance (DEB) for optimum broiler performance.

IMPORTANCE OF ANTIOXIDANT IN DAIRY FEED

High energy dairy feed having fats and oils has a high risk of feed oxidation which may lead to degradation of nutrients and development of rancidity. This leads to low energy, low nutrient and less palatable feed resulting into poor health, loss of production, reproductive inefficiency and loss of profit.

Evaluating Ammonia Binders - B50 Value

Poultry industry is one of the fastest growing sectors in India today. Though the growth rate is high, the poultry industry regularly faces different types of challenges. Out of all the challenges, ammonia emission is one of the major ones the industry is facing, especially in the winter season.

Minerals, a vital element in dairy nutrition

Minerals are required by the body of the animal for optimum growth, proper muscle and nerve function. In addition, they are essential components of body enzymes, hormones and cells. They play vital roles in the maintenance of acid base balance, osmotic pressure, membrane electric potential and nervous transmission.

PHENOLIC AROMATIC COMPOUNDS: POTENTIAL AGP SUBSTITUTE

Antibiotics in feed, commonly called antibiotic growth promoter (AGP), have been used as an effective tool to improve animal performance, by suppressing the pathogens in the digestive tract. Recently, usage of AGPs has come under increasing scrutiny by government regulators, scientists and consumers because of the emergence of antibiotic-resistant superbugs.

Acidosis in Dairy Cattle

In dairy cattle, rumen pH fluctuates considerably by 0.5 to 1 pH unit during the 24 hours’ period. Rumen pH is determined by the dynamic balance between the intake of fermentable carbohydrates, buffering capacity of the rumen, and rate of acid absorption from the rumen.

GENETICALLY ENGINEERED E. Coli PHYTASE IN POULTRY NUTRITION

Phytate is the major form of phosphorus present in grains and oilseed meals, used in poultry diet. Phytate Phosphorus largely undigested in poultry is excreted in the manure which leads to soil and water pollution. Phytate also has the ability to bind with other metal ions (e.g. Ca+2 , Mg+2  , Zn+2 , Fe+2 ) and proteins which get eventually excreted unutilized.
