From WATTAgNet:

The past week brought us news about Cargill, ADM, Darling Ingredients, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, prestarters for antibiotic-free broilers, scale-adapted solutions for nutrition problems, XRF analysis, sources of sustainable soy for feed, and mycotoxins in this year’s U.S. corn crop.


Kansas added to states reporting fumonisin in corn

One new U.S. state was added to the list of states reporting fumonisin in corn, according to Neogen’s Monday Mycotoxin report from November 16.

First sources of sustainable soy for feed identified

There has been a positive response from soy value chain partners on a new benchmarking tool for soy sourcing, according to the European Feed Manufacturers’ Federation (FEFAC), with 8 programs passing review against its Soy Sourcing Guidelines.

Darling Ingredients results down $124.9 million in Q3

For the third quarter of 2015, Darling Ingredients Inc. reported revenue of $853.8 million, as compared with $978.7 million for the third quarter of 2014. The $124.9 million decrease in revenue is attributable to lower finished product prices, primarily in the global competing ingredients prices and the foreign exchange rate impact of a weaker euro and Canadian dollar.

ADM expands food-, feed-ingredient production in China

With the recent opening of two plants in China on two consecutive days, Archer Daniels Midland Co. has increased its capacity to serve growing regional demand for value-added food-ingredients and animal-nutrition products.

TPP’s potential influence on world feed production

Because of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the world feed industry can expect a boost in demand and output for feed commodities and meat products especially in Japan and Vietnam.

Cargill continues investment in Vietnam

Cargill continues to grow its business in Vietnam and has plans for a new US$30 million animal feed mill in Binh Duong province and a US$10 million agreement with Saigon International Terminals Vietnam (SITV) for dedicated grain and oilseeds warehousing facilities in Phu My.

Applying XRF analysis to improve animal feed ingredients

This case study examines Cargill Animal Nutrition’s novel implementation of Bruker Optics x-ray fluorescence (XRF) technology to perform elemental analysis on its ingredients to improve feed formulations and animal performance.

Similar animal nutrition problems require scale-adapted solutions

I use two extreme cases to illustrate a point that is very clear to those working on an international scale: All producers face similar problems.

Highly-digestible prestarters for antibiotic-free broilers

Broilers always benefit from a better diet offered early in life, and more so when their feed is free of growth-promoting antibiotics. This special case enhances the need for a more digestible, better balanced diet that is supplemented with specialty ingredients.
