29/05/2015: Cargill helps cows avoid heat stress during hot summer months

Cargill’s animal nutrition business today shared new data proving the effectiveness of its customized feeding solutions that help customers manage heat-stressed cows during heat waves. With summer in full swing in the northern hemisphere, heat stress generally begins to affect a cow’s performance when the Temperature Humidity Index (THI) reaches 68, and can significantly reduce their appetite, fertility and milk production levels.

“Our proprietary feeding solutions, called I.C.E.™ and Cooling Pack™, which are tailored to meet customers’ specific needs and the environment in which they operate, help protect cows from heat stress effects at the cellular level,” said Ercole Zerbini, Cargill’s global ruminant technology director.

“Adding key nutritional ingredients such as an osmolyte can help cows stay hydrated, avoid dramatic increases in overall body temperature, recover faster after high heat and humidity, and improve pregnancy and fertility rates.”

Recent trials prove effectiveness
  • Commercial farm trials in Texas, U.S., demonstrated an increase in conception rates of 7.1 percent in multiparous cows (cows that have had more than one calf) and 8.1 percent in primiparous cows (cows that are calving for the first time).
  • A trial in Brazil indicated a 13 percent increase in fertility rates.
  • Another study in Brazil showed better protection against the depression in milk fat concentration often seen when cows are exposed to heat.
  • Heat stress is known to bring increased risk of ruminal acidosis. Work at the Cargill Innovation Center in Velddriel, The Netherlands demonstrated improved maintenance of rumen pH.
“A customer in the U.S. was able to maintain 70 pounds (32 kilograms) of milk with 4.6-to-4.7 percent butterfat and 3.6 percent protein through the whole summer,” says Noah Hughes, Cargill sales consultant. 

“Previously, milk production at this dairy farm would drop to 60 pounds (27 kilograms) per day in the peak summer heat.”

Cargill’s heat stress feeding solutions, marketed under I.C.E.™ and Cooling Pack™, are now available in the U.S., Brazil, France, Italy, Korea, Mexico, Russia, Canada and Peru. 

For optimal results, Cargill and Provimi brand nutritionists recommend implementing this technology before a heat wave begins. Contact your local sales representative to learn more about which heat stress solution would best suite your needs.

29/05/2015: Cargill to acquire 51 percent stake in Ekol Gida and accelerate growth of its animal nutrition business in Turkey

Cargill’s animal nutrition business has agreed terms to acquire a majority stake in Ekol Gida, a leading company operating in premix and feed additives markets in Turkey. The deal, which is subject to regulatory approvals, is expected to close in summer 2015.
      
“Customers will gain access to Cargill’s extended product portfolio and technical expertise for an enhanced experience”, says Mark Poeschl, vice president and group director of Cargill’s animal nutrition business. 
  
“The commercial focus will be on Turkey and selected export markets.”

“We are proud for Ekol Gida to make this significant step together with Cargill. The deal will leverage our established customer network in premixes, feed additives and our profound market knowledge. The management team will remain committed to continue serving our existing customer base,” says Serhad Celik, Ekol Gida’s general manager and one of its founding shareholders.

29/05/2015: Amaferm additive for ruminants available from Cargill in India and China

As Asia’s dairy industry grows rapidly and consumption increases, Cargill’s feed additive PROMOTE® Amaferm™ is available in China and India to help dairy farmers increase milk production. With data from more than 100 research studies, Amaferm™ has shown to increase milk production, digestibility and feed efficiency in ruminants.
     
An offering sold under the Provimi brand as part of the PROMOTE® line of additives, Amaferm™ is derived from the proprietary fermentation of Aspergillus oryzae, a fungus commonly used in the production of many Asian foods including soy sauce, miso and sake.

“In ruminants, Amaferm™ helps stimulate the growth of fungi and bacteria that occur in the rumen, providing ample nutrients for the animal’s development,” said Maxime Hilbert, Cargill’s technology leader for additives. 

“Ultimately, Amaferm™ acts as a prebiotic, delivering more microbial protein and energy to the animal through increased digestibility.”

To assess Amaferm™ in China and India, trials were performed in Hangzhou, China and District Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh, India in 2013. In China, an eight week trial with mid-lactation dairy cows at Zhejiang University showed an increase in milk production by 4 percent as well as a 5 percent improvement in digestibility of dry matter. 

In India, a four week on-farm trial with early lactation buffalo revealed a statistical improvement of 4.7 percent milk fat over the control group due to better fiber digestion which lead to higher acetate and butyrate volatile fatty acid production, the main precursor of milk fat. Along with increased milk production, trials using Amaferm™ have demonstrated improved weight recovery after calving by 22 percent as well as an ability to decrease ketosis risk.

Further, a German feed producer currently using Amaferm™ as part of its on-farm mineral Rupromin Fiber, a product from Cargill’s Provimi brand designed to stimulate rumen fungi, discovered a significant improvement in fiber digestibility and a 5 percent increase in milk production on its farms. 

“We believe we can deliver similar results to customers in India and China, two countries where dairy consumption and production are soaring,” said Hilbert.

Beyond the trials in China and India, key findings from more than 100 Amaferm™ research studies include:
  • Increased Average Daily Gain (ADG) for beef cattle up to 7 percent
  • Increased milk production up to 7 percent for dairy cattle
  • Increased feed efficiency up to 5 percent for all ruminants
  • Increased digestibility up to 9 percent for all ruminants
Amaferm™ is currently available in India and selected countries in Europe, Middle East and South America. It is expected to be available in China in the second half of 2015. For optimal results, please contact your Provimi brand nutrition expert to develop a customized feeding program to suit local environments, business goals and regulations. AmafermTM is a trademark of BioZyme Incorporated, used under license.

29/05/2015: Industry leaders sign agreement to create pig farm of the future in China


Global animal health leader Alltech has signed a memorandum of understanding with Jiangsu Guo Ming Agricultural Development Company at the China Animal Husbandry Expo in Chongqing, confirming the companies’ commitment to work together to open a new pig farm in Shuyang, Jiangsu Province, China.

Five companies have come together to support Jiangsu Guo Ming in the development of the farm in their respective areas of expertise. Alltech will provide animal nutrition solutions, Big Dutchman and Betco will work together on the equipment, facility and house design, PIC will provide genetics and Pipestone will offer management support.
     
Global animal health leader Alltech signs a memorandum of understanding with Jiangsu Guo Ming Agricultural Development Company at the China Animal Husbandry Expo in Chongqing, confirming the companies’ commitment to work together to open a new pig farm in Shuyang, Jiangsu Province, China. Alltech is joined in this partnership by Big Dutchman, Betco, Pig Improvement Company and Pipestone.
The farm, which will take approximately two years to complete, will rely on the expertise of industry leaders to develop a farm that will serve as a model to farmers and processors on how using the latest technologies, including nutrigenomics, can maximize productivity. The farm will house 5000 sows and in a second phase expand to include grower-finisher barns. The end goal is to produce antibiotic free, natural pork products in a highly efficient manner with far less environmental impact than today’s farming practices.

“The pig industry in China is transforming from scattered small farms to large-scale farming, and there are lots of opportunities for growth. This new farm will need comprehensive technology, thus we are partnering with industry leaders to maximize productivity,” said Guoming Pan, president of Jiangsu Guo Ming.

Jiangsu Guo Ming aims to create a farm that is environmentally sustainable with high standards for animal welfare. In addition to ensuring traceability from seed to feed, a key objective is to produce a model for manure management that can be replicated on farms in China.

“Alltech is guided by our ACE principle, which stands for the benefit and safety to the Animal, Consumer and Environment, and the base of our products has always been natural. We are proud to work with Jiangsu Guo Ming and other industry leaders to develop a farm that follows this principle and uses the latest technologies to maximize productivity,” said Dr Mark Lyons, Alltech vice president and director of China business operations.

“I am confident that Alltech’s contribution, backed by 35 years of experience, will be significant in helping pigs achieve their genetic potential through nutrition.”

The agreement was signed by representatives from six companies: Guoming Pan, president of Jiangsu Guoming; Fred Barnard, COO of Betco Asia; Nigel Goode, president of Pig Business Unit, Big Dutchman; Martin Butler, China director, Pipestone; Sean Teng, key account director, PIC China and Michael Woolsey, senior regulatory strategic manager, Alltech China.

28/05/2015: Don't miss sarah Zimmerman speak on how food fortification works, at the Global Milling with GRAPAS conference

Image: spilltojill
Some people say poodles are bad-tempered. But they never stop to think about why

If you take a highly intelligent animal, shave some of its hair off in all the wrong places and stick pink bows through the rest, what do you expect? You’d be pretty grumpy too.  

While you’re digesting this pearl of wisdom (no need to thank us), we’d like to remind you that time is running out to get your ticket to the Global Milling with GRAPAS Conference at Victam International on Thursday June 11 in Köln, Germany.   
          
You don’t want to miss Sarah Zimmerman, Communications Coordinator of the Global Secretariat of the Food Fortification Initiative, giving a talk on how ‘Fortification Works: New Evidence of Health Impact.’ 

Here’s the low-down: 
“Vitamins and minerals have been added to wheat flour for decades to improve public health. This session will share new evidence that fortification is preventing anemia caused by nutritional deficiencies and neural tube birth defects caused by insufficient folic acid. Evidence will represent multiple countries, including Costa Rica, Fiji, and the United States. 

“The impact of adding calcium to wheat flour in the United Kingdom will be included. This session will outline the keys to successful fortification programs. When these are in place, the millers’ efforts lead to the desired health impact. Building on the success of wheat flour fortification, global efforts are underway to expand grain fortification to include maize flour and whole kernel rice. This session will include updates on those efforts.”

And if this isn’t enough, we can even give you a 99 percent guarantee that there will be no grumpy poodles.

28/05/2015: Asia-Pacific region achieves Millennium Development Goal to reduce hunger by half by 2015

The Asia-Pacific region has achieved the Millennium Development Goal (MDG-1c) by reducing the proportion of people suffering from hunger by half by 2015, the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) announced today.

“This is an historic achievement, a great milestone of which the Asia-Pacific region should be proud,” said Hiroyuki Konuma, FAO Assistant Director-General and Regional Representative. 
          
“Looking at the region as a whole, in the MDG base year of 1990, around 24 percent of the population was undernourished. Today, that percentage has been cut in half to 12 percent and thus has met the MDG hunger goal.”
       
Image: foxypar4
Some of the greatest reductions in the proportion of those hungry during that 25 year period were seen in China (60.9 percent), Thailand (78.7 percent), Viet Nam (75.8 percent) and Indonesia (61.6 percent).

However, while the region as a whole has achieved the MDG proportional hunger target, the achievements are uneven at subregional levels.

“Unfortunately, South Asia has not managed to achieve the same level of success as East Asia and South-East Asia – the two subregions that achieved the greatest proportional drop in undernourished,” Konuma said. 

“And while overall the Asia-Pacific region achieved the largest reduction in the absolute number of undernourished people in the world – some 236 million people – this was not sufficient to meet the additional target set by the 1996 World Food Summit (WFS) to reduce the absolute numbers by half.”

In total, there are still 490 million people in Asia and the Pacific who suffer from chronic hunger – more than any other region of the world.

“While we acknowledge the region’s achievements today, we cannot and must not think everything is alright. It’s not,” said Konuma. 

“With 12 percent of our population still undernourished we must turn our full attention to them. I call upon all of us to increase our efforts by taking up the Zero Hunger Challenge. We can make hunger a relic of the past – we can achieve zero hunger if we try.”

Konuma pointed out there will be obstacles. While the world presently produces enough food for all, the challenge of making sure everyone gets enough to eat will become even greater as the world population is expected to grow to more than nine billion people by 2050 – with rural to urban migration continuing apace. Other challenges such as obesity, especially in Pacific Islands, and the hidden hunger of poor nutrition must be addressed.

Critical to achieving zero hunger will be support to family and smallholder farmers who produce the bulk of our food yet often remain in poverty and vulnerable to their own food insecurity.    

“As we move beyond the MDGs and toward the Sustainable Development Goals, policy commitments, institutional and technological innovations, combined with effective social protection measures will be required, in an overall framework of sustainable growth that is more equitably shared and environmentally sustainable,” said Konuma.

27/05/2015: Milk has a bright future over the next ten years: Italy can benefit as long as it makes structural changes

This was the theme of a convention held at the Milan Trade Fair Centre (Fiera Milano) during Dairy Tech, a new exhibition of process and packaging technologies for the dairy industry.

The future of milk was under consideration on 21 May at the Milan Trade Fair Centre, which was hosting the conference 'Milk for the planet: 2015-2025', as part of Dairy Tech, a new exhibition of technology for the treatment and packaging of dairy products. The future looks bright for the dairy industry, which constitutes an important part of the Italian agri-foods sector.

http://www.dairytech.it/eng/home
Image: mycael
According to estimates from the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), the average annual growth of world dairy production over the next 10-15 years will be 3-3.5 percent. Between the end of 2015 and 2025, global production is set to rise from 780 million to more than one billion tons, but with large discrepancies between developed and emerging countries, the latter of which will continue to lag behind in the production both of milk and of derivatives. For example, the European Union, the USA, New Zealand and Australia already more than satisfy demand, whereas China, Africa, Eastern Europe and Central America do not, and will therefore be the drivers behind the rising global demand. China is a case in point.

According to data compiled by Girà, a European market research company, the value of Chinese imports of cheese is growing at a rate of 16 percent per year, and is set to maintain or even increase this rhythm. The largest rise in demand is expected to be for products with higher added value such as cheese, butter and dairy products for children. Girà estimates an average annual growth of 12 percent in the baby food segment.

Italy is well placed to take advantage of the expanding market, being home to 2000 companies processing and packaging milk and dairy products, with a combined turnover of €15 billion and 25,000 employees. Italy produces more than 1 million tons of cheese products, of which 484,000 qualify for the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) label, and exports 340,000 tons worth €2.2 billion. Since 1990, export volumes have been on a constant upward curve: fresh cheeses including mozzarella +2700 percent; Grana Padano and Parmigiano Reggiano +500 percent; Provolone +220 percent; and Gorgonzola +170 percent.

At the Dairy Tech conference, however, it also became clear that these numbers do not add up to enough to keep up with the expanding market. Some 72 percent of Italian companies generate less than €10 million in sales; further, Italian SMEs contribute to just 17 percent of the total €15-billion turnover of the sector.  The key to export growth is to sell more milk cheaply to foreign countries that are increasingly appreciative of our cheeses, but if Italy is to grasp the promised opportunities of the future, it is going to have to make structural changes to the industry. This will entail new forms of collaboration among companies, new commercial structures, a strengthening of PDO products, the upgrading of production plants, process lines and packaging systems. As regards this last (processing and packaging), Italy is already a world leader (with a 13 percent share of global exports in 2013), and it is with the aim of taking advantage of this strength that the Dairy Tech event was set up.
