Feed Technology

WHAT ARE YOUR ALTERNATIVE FEED INGREDIENT OPTIONS?
 
  • Pigs need nutrients, NOT feed ingredients
  • Dry feeding or liquid feeding
  • DRY means over 80% dry matter
  • LIQUID means anything goes
  • Enzymes for breakdown of complex substrates
  • Fat and fibre equals starch for energy supply
  • Synthetic amino acids replace proteins
  • Exotic imported ingredients-Tapioca/Corn/Sunflower extracts/Rice bran

ALTERNATIVE FEED INGREDIENTS – THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU EAT
 
  • Dairy Industry
  • Confectionery Waste
  • Brewing/Wine By-Products
  • Cereal Milling Wastes/Bakery Wastes
  • Sugar Refining By-Products
  • Oilseed Industry
  • Fishing Industry
  • Slaughter Industry
  • Poultry Processing/Hatchery Waste
  • Fruit/Vegetable Preparation

ALTERNATIVE FEEDING STRATEGIES
 
  • By-products are dumped or composted
  • Environmental concerns
  • Ingredient free of charge + freight cost = low cost nutrients
  • Make a dry co-product from liquid onto a carrier (potato starch – 40% moisture on mill run)
  • Feed root crops in ecoshelters (potatoes/carrots/onions)
  • Feed a liquid feed down the water pipeline alternately with water on time switch
  • Digest cheese with enzyme/emulsifier to make a solid into a liquid
  • Increase the number of feed silos and liquid feed tanks to give flexibility
