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.
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”.
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 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.
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.
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.
