Animal Feed

Animal feed is the food given to animals which are domestic often refers to fodder in course of care and management of farm animals by humans for profit. Supply of quality feed ensures the health of animals. Various feeds include poultry feed, sheep husbandry, cat food, pet food, pig farming, cattle feeding, dog food, equine nutrition and bird food.

Nutritive value of feeds (e.g., assessment, improvement).Agronomic and climatic factors influencing the nutritive value of feeds.Utilization of feeds and the improvement of such Metabolic, production, reproduction and health responses, as well as potential environmental impacts, of diet inputs and feed technologies (e.g., feeds, feed additives, feed components, mycotoxins).

Animal Husbandry

Animal husbandry is the branch of science deals with the practice of breeding, farming and care of farm animals such as cattle, dogs, sheep and horses by humans for advantages. Animal husbandry refers to livestock raising and selective breeding. It is a branch of agriculture. A large number of farmers are depends on Animal Husbandry for their livelihood. In addition to supplying milk, meat, eggs, wool and hides, animals, mainly bullocks are the major source of power for both farmers and dryers.

Animal husbandry is the management and care of farm animals by humans for profit, in which genetic qualities and behavior, considered to be advantageous to humans, are further developed.

Animal Food Supplimentation

Animal food supplementation is the process of adding specific nutrients to animal food to augment levels of certain nutrients in the whole diet or make up for a deficiency. Supplements are also used to improve digestive functions, promotes vitality, regenerates liver and maintains balance of the body.

We formulate a wide range of animal feed supplements which are known for excellent nutritional content. These animal feed supplements can be mixed with fodder and have an extra shelf life.

Mineral Complex of Amino Acids is very useful in Veterinary, Poultry & Aquaculture. It acts as animal feed attractant in aquaculture and prevents wastage of animal feed.

Animal Nutrition

Animal Nutrients are provided by food. Nutrients are essential for growth and maintenance of the body even some nutrients provide energy. Macro nutrients and micro nutrients both are essential for health. For example nutrition for dogs they need carbohydrates,proteins, and fats in order to gain energy. And for Poultry nutrition should include fats, amino acids, proteins, minerals and water for their growth and development.And for Bovine nutrition should need proteins, phosphorous and pro vitamin A . Water soluble vitamins like B-complex vitamins and c vitamins and Fat soluble vitamins like A, D, E and K are the examples for micro nutrients.

Animal nutrition focuses on the dietary needs of domesticated animals, primarily those in agriculture and food production. Meeting livestock nutritional requirements is extremely important in maintaining acceptable performance of neonatal, growing, finishing and breeding animals.

Avian Feeding

Avian Feeding or bird feeding is the method of feeding wild birds to provide them easy food sources individually. It comprises of aspects like how to feed birds, what food to provide, all about bird tables, when to feed birds, hygiene and virtual precautions to be taken and methods to be followed.

Avian feeding guilds is important for understanding the complexity of ecosystem structure and for providing updated information on each type of habitat in the ecosystem. Avian feeding methods are Ground feeding,Large hopper feeding,Large tube feeder feeding.

Basal Diet

Basal diet refers to the diet having calorific value equal to production of basal heat and adequate essential nutrients in quantities to meet basic needs. Basal diet experiments involves method in which effects of a constituent which is to be determined is omitted first and later added to diet.

Basal diet maintains the body fit and healthy.Intake of Basal diet like fiber ,protein content food keeps the body away from diseases.

Cattle Feeding

Cattle feeding system of cattle with protein, fiber, carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins they require is cattle feeding. It comprises of grazing, integrated livestock farming. Types of cattle feed are pelletized feed, sweet feed and block feed. In general cattle are fed by grass fed and corn fed.

Cattle feeding with rich of nutritious content makes the cattle healthy and more productive.

Crude Protein

Crude protein is the amount of protein of animal feed or specific food. Crude protein depends on the nitrogen content of the food proteins. Crude protein measurements is common in fields of animal husbandry and food leads to economical implications.

crude protein as a measurement might inflate the amount of protein in a food. Food manufacturers use crude protein content to calculate the amount of carbohydrate in food.

Domestication or taming is the adaptation of wild animals or plants to serve human uses such as food, work, clothing, medicine and others. Herbivores are easiest animals to domesticate as they are easy to feed. Animals such as cows, buffaloes, sheep, dogs, cats, goat are domesticated in general.

Domestication is defined as the keeping of animals in captivity by a human community that maintains total control over their breeding, organization of territory, and food supply. True domestication involves a combination of biological and cultural processes.

Feed Additive

Feed additive is a product used as supplement of food in animal nutrition to farm animals which lack of getting enough nutrients from regular meals to serve the purpose of improving animals health and performance, feed quality and food quality from animals. Feed additives are amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins etc.

Feed Conversion

Feed Conversion refers to the units of production per unit of fed feed during specific period of time. Feed conversion ratio is the measure of animals efficiency in converting mass material of nutritional value fed to animals. It is the ratio of food intake by average daily gain.

Feeding Patterns

Animals adapt different feeding patterns to obtain food. They are classified by the mode of ingestion, digestion and type of food. Ingestion includes filter, deposit, fluid, ram, bulk and suction feeding. Digestion consists of extracellular, myzocytosis and phagocytosis. Carnivore, herbivore and omnivore are under food types.

Fish Nutrition

The anatomy and functions of the major organs and systems in the fishes, which affect their nutrition. The sensory organs are important in fish nutrition, as the fishes use these organs to locate and investigate the acceptability of any food or feed in the environment. The oral or buccal cavity is the area where food is first consumed by the fish. The structures that aid in capture and retention of food are the taste buds, teeth, gill rakers, tongue, and esophagus. The organs that are the sites of digestion include the posterior esophagus , stomach (in gastric species) or intestinal bulb (in agastric species), upper and lower intestine, and pyloric ceca. Supportive digestive organs are the pancreas, gallbladder, and liver. Four distinct layers of tissue can be found in digestive organs of fish and other vertebrates. These layers, starting from the lumen and working outward, are the mucosa, submucosa, muscularis, and serosa. The process of digestion is a coordinated combination of physical, chemical, and enzymatic activities that begins as soon as food is taken into the mouth and ends when feces are excreted from the anus.

Food Chains

Food chain is the linear sequence of links in food web from producer to predator species. Food chain defines how animals relates each other by the food they eat in the biological community ecosystem. Food chain includes herbivores, carnivores and omnivores in trophic levels.

High Fat Diet

This relationship in humans or in animal High-fat diet-induced obesity 271 Nutrition Research Reviews models of more dietary fat leading to greater obesity shows that the fat content of the diet is an important factor in energy balance. In general, diets containing more than 30 % of total energy as fat lead to the development of obesity.

Nutritional Value

Nutritional value refers to contents of food and the impact of constituents on body. It relates to carbohydrates, fats, proteins, minerals, additives, enzymes, vitamins, sugar intake, cholesterol, fat and salt intake. Nutritive value is essential in maintaining performance of neonatal, growing , finished and breeding animals. In general food label gives nutritional values to consumers.
