BOKU-Symposium 2024

We are pleased to announce our participation in the 22st BOKU Symposium Animal Nutrition 2024. It will take place on Thursday, 29 February 2024 in Vienna. The general theme of this year’s event is: “Effects of a special feeding concept in sows and piglets on rearing performance in the suckling period”.

Our colleagues Dr Ralph Schemmer and Dr Michael Hovenjürgen will attend the conference.

BAT-Conference 2023

The Bavarian Working Group Animal Nutrition (BAT) organizes its 61th annual conference this year at the LfL in Poing/Grub. The general topic is: “Successful young animal rearing for animal well-being and more sustainability”. Again, we were represented with a scientific contribution.

The title of our poster was: “Use of a rumen-stable combination of fat, lecithin and methionine in dairy cows in practice”.

Efficient feeding reduces emissions

Rumen-stable fats (BEWI-SPRAY®) allow an effective energetic enhancement of the ration without  providing substrate for methanogenic microorganisms. Methane emission is even reduced in relation to the higher energy supply per unit of “milk volume produced“.

By using rumen-protected amino acids (BEWI-FATRIX®) and rumen-stable fats (BEWI-SPRAY®), dairy cow rations can be optimized in terms of protein and energy source use. At the same time, these products enable the targeted reduction of nitrogen, phosphorus and methane emission per kg of milk.

The general topic of the 21st BOKU symposium Animal Nutrition 2023 was “Feeding strategies in times of limited resources”. We were again represented with a scientific contribution.

The title of our poster was: “Effects of different fat sources on the apparent total tract digestibility of energy in piglets”.

BOKU Symposium 2023

We are pleased to announce our participation in the 21st BOKU Symposium Animal Nutrition 2023. It will take place on Thursday, 20 April 2023 in Vienna.

The general theme of this year’s event is: “Feeding strategies in times of limited resources”.

BAT-Conference 2022

The Bavarian Working Group Animal Nutrition (BAT) organizes its 60th annual conference this year at the LfL in Poing/Grub. We were again represented with a scientific contribution.

The title of our poster was: “Effect of supplementing rumen-protected biotin in dairy cows – a practice test”.

BOKU-Symposium 2022

suckling piglets

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.

The new BEWI-SAN Prevent C

Decades of experience have gone into our BEWI-SAN range.

Carob flour is a new addition to the BEWI-SAN Prevent C formula. Due to its high content of swellable dietary fibre, carob flour has a supportive effect on non-specific digestive problems.

BAT conference 2021

The Bavarian Working Group Animal Nutrition (BAT) organized its 59th annual conference this year as a digital web conference.

The conference presents latest insights around the general topic of “Feed and feeding with regard to climate relevance and the avoidance of food competition”. We were represented again with a scientific contribution.

Improve gut health and reduce antibiotic use with targeted combinations of medium-chain fatty acids.

Medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA)
and their derivatives are known for their pronounced antibacterial effects against gram-positive bacteria.

BOKU-Symposium 2021

The 19th BOKU symposium Animal Nutrition 2021 had the general topic “Animal Nutrition between animal welfare and environment protection”.

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

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.

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
