As a specialist in encapsulation, BEWITAL agri applies a specific process for the production of matrix-encapsulated active ingredients.
We are leaders in the technology for development and production of innovative specialty feed.
BEWITAL agri develops products that are ideally suited to the needs of today’s farming and feed industry, and this has been the case for over 50 years. This sets us apart from other suppliers.
Our feed concepts contribute to animal health, growth, yield and environmental protection.
High temperatures = stressed pigs
Pigs are equipped with relatively few sweat glands and thus, experience heat stress quite early as they are not able to effectively dissipate warmth.
A targeted approach is important to decrease the impact of heat stress as much as possible.
Modifying the feeding regime therefor plays
an important role. Tips for feeding against the
energy gap can be found here!
Heat stress for calves
During heat stress conditions, most farmers think about their dairy cows first, but the effects on calves are no less serious.
The stress can begin in the womb. Lower birth weights, a weakened immune system and reduced feed intake lead to a poor start in life. This also has consequences for the milk yield later on.
Therefore, it is necessary to improve conditions
here as well so that long-term reductions in performance
Heat means stress for cows
According to forecasts, we will again face a hot, dry summer this year.
For dairy farmers, this results in several challenges: decreasing harvest volumes, decreased feed quality for the following cuts and decreased dairy performance due to heat stress.
Constant performance by rumen-stable fat!
This is how to get your cows through the summer period.
Intensive feeding is cost-effective!
Due to the rising prices for calf milk, several farm managers are playing with the idea of using whole milk instead of milk replacer during calf rearing.
However, this does not make sense from a health and economic point of view!
A study shows: Intensively raised calves have a
higher milk yield during their lactation.
Not all fats are the same
When using rumen-stable fats it is important to know their special properties. Because: not all fats are the same!
Products on the market differ significantly in terms of the fatty acid pattern, the manufacturing process and thus also in terms of rumen stability and digestibility.
The use of BEWI-SPRAY® RS 70 and BEWI-SPRAY® 99 M
is especially useful in early lactation to improve the
energy supply and reduce a negative energy balance.
C16:0 and C18:0 are well digestible
Rumen-stable fats are primarily based on palm oil and rapeseed oil. The dominant fatty acids are palmitic acid (C16:0), stearic acid (C18:0) and, in smaller amounts, oleic acid (C18:1).
To be able to evaluate the fatty acids, the ratio of the fatty acid in the feed, as well as in the digestive tract, must be taken into account.
Looking at the digestibility of long-chain fatty acids shows
that C16:0 and C18:0 are almost equally digestible.
We encapsulate ingredients
so that they reach the site where they take effect.
The matrix encapsulation process on the basis of hydrogenated vegetable fats allows the use of feed components and active ingredients whose use in unprotected form is not possible or useful or could have negative effects.
In ruminants, these include not only amino acids and water-soluble vitamins, but also other active ingredients which are largely broken down in the rumen without protection.
In monogastric animals, various active substances are inactivated in the stomach or can have unprotected negative effects on feed intake.
The 20th BOKU symposium Animal Nutrition 2022 had the general topic “Bioactive Substances in Animal Nutrition: Functions and Future”. We were again represented with a scientific contribution.
The current study examined the influence of an encapsulated fatty acid combination and phytogenic additives on certain parameters of the lactating sow.
