Is Feed Microbial Quality Attacking Your Profit?

In this article, Dr Gino Lorenzoni, Technical Director at Anitox, discusses the various factors which can compromise an animal’s ability to effectively process feed. These include: feed as a cause of enteritis, a condition prevalent among farmed animals; the lack of guidance on ‘safe’ limits for bacterial contamination in feed; variation of bacterial contamination within different batches of feed; and the possible effect of all these factors on how profitable an animal production operation will be.
