BOKU-Symposium 2021

The 19th BOKU Symposium Animal Nutrition was under the general theme “Animal nutrition between animal well-being & environmental protection”.

The symposium was organised for the first time as a digital web conference. We were again represented with a scientific poster.

Encapsulated additives

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.

Emission reduction in dairy cattle

Rumen-protected fats (BEWI-SPRAY®) allow an effective energy improvement of the ration without offering a substrate for methanogenic microorganisms. The methane emission is not increased despite a higher energy supply.

BAT-conference: new study presented

The 57th BAT conference took place in Grub (GER). The general topic was “Sustainable animal nutrition”.

Dr. Michael Hovenjürgen presented our latest study about: “Effects of rumen-stable amino acids”.

BOKU-Symposium 2019 Animal Nutrition | Results

The 18th BOKU Symposium in Vienna (AT) was under the general theme “Feeding young livestock”.

We were again represented with a scientific poster: “Influence of quality and concentration of calf milk replacers on growth performance of beef calves”.

Rumen-protected active ingredients for dairy cows

A combination of rumen-protected methionine and lysine makes it possible to optimise protein efficiency and to reduce common protein carriers without performance losses.

An addition of rumen-protected methionine shows positive effects on metabolism and liver health.

BOKU-Symposium 2018: Another 2nd poster award

The 17th BOKU-Symposium in Vienna (AUT) was under the headline of the “carbohydrates in animal nutrition”.

With our study by Dr. Jan Voss and Dr. Michael Hovenjürgen we were again able to win the 2nd poster price.

BOKU-Symposium 2017: Award for our poster

The 16th BOKU-Symposium in Vienna (AUT) was under the headline of the “healthy intestinal tract”.

Dr. Michael Hovenjürgen won the 2nd price for his poster. The study was conducted in cooperation with VBZL Haus Riswick, Germany, and the agricultural university of Osnabrück.
