Active fractions of mannoproteins derived from yeast cell wall stimulate innate and acquired immunity of adult and elderly dogs.

Anim Feed Sci Technol 2020 Mar 10;261:114392. Epub 2020 Jan 10.

Department of Veterinary Clinic and Surgery, Sao Paulo State University, Jaboticabal, Brazil.

Nutritional intervention in older dogs aims to increase lifespan and improve life quality as well as delay the development of diseases related to ageing. It is believed that active fractions of mannoproteins (AFMs) obtained through extraction and fractionation of yeast cell walls () may beneficially modulate the immune system. However, studies that have evaluated this component and the effects of ageing on the immune system of dogs are scarce. Read More

Evaluating the effects of storage conditions on dry matter loss and nutritional quality of grain legume fodders in West Africa.

Anim Feed Sci Technol 2020 Apr;262:114419

Animal Production Systems Group, Wageningen University & Research, P.O. Box 338,6700 AH Wageningen, the Netherlands.

Feed scarcity is a major challenge for livestock production in West Africa, especially during the dry season when grass quality and quantity on grazing lands are inadequate. In the dry season, crop residues are a key source of livestock feed. The residues of grain legumes, also known as grain legume fodders (GLFs), are stored and traded for feeding in the dry season.

Assessing the ability of silage lactic acid bacteria to incorporate and transform inorganic selenium within laboratory scale silos.

Anim Feed Sci Technol 2019 Jun;253:125-134

Rothamsted Research, North Wyke, Okehampton, Devon, EX20 2SB, United Kingdom.

Selenium (Se) is a non-metallic trace element essential for normal cellular function, which has been linked with reduced risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, cognitive decline and thyroid disease in humans. Se deficiency in livestock is associated with white muscle disease, retained placenta, ill-thrift and mastitis. Where Se status or bioavailability from the soil for plants is poor, livestock rely on supplemental Se in their diets predominantly as either sodium selenite (inorganic form) or selenised-yeast (organic form).

The influence of selenium and selenoproteins on immune responses of poultry and pigs.

Anim Feed Sci Technol 2018 Apr 31;238:73-83. Epub 2018 Jan 31.

Dept. of Animal Science, Aarhus University, Blichers allé 20, 8830 Tjele, Denmark.

Selenium is an essential nutrient for poultry and pigs, and is important for a number of physiological processes including regulation and function of the immune system. Through its incorporation into selenoproteins, Se is involved in the regulation of oxidative stress, redox mechanisms, and other crucial cellular processes involved in innate and adaptive immune response. This review provides current knowledge on the mechanisms by which selenium can modulate the resilience to infectious diseases, and how this micronutrient can influence the capacity of the bird or the pig to maintain its productivity during an infectious challenge.

Available energy content, nutrients digestibility of chili meal and effects on performance of growing pigs.

Anim Feed Sci Technol 2017 Jul;229:97-105

State Key Laboratory of Animal Nutrition, Ministry of Agriculture Feed Industry Centre, China Agricultural University, Beijing 100193, China.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the digestible energy (DE), metabolizable energy (ME) content, apparent total tract digestibility (ATTD) of nutrients in chili meal (CM), and to determine the effects of CM on the performance of growing pigs. In Exp. 1, 12 barrows (Duroc x Landrace x Yorkshire) with an initial body weight (BW) of 50. Read More

Supplementing a yeast probiotic to pre-weaning Holstein calves: Feed intake, growth and fecal biomarkers of gut health.

Anim Feed Sci Technol 2017 Apr 22;226:81-87. Epub 2017 Feb 22.

Department of Agricultural, Food, and Nutritional Science, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta T6G 2P5, Canada.

Diarrhea, resulting from gastrointestinal infection by pathogens, is a common cause of the high mortality and morbidity of neonatal calves. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of supplementing a yeast product in milk replacer (MR) on growth and health of calves, and on fecal populations of some targeted microorganisms related to calf health and growth (, total bacteria, , cluster XIVa, and spp.).

Antibiotics in feed, with special reference to pigs: a veterinary viewpoint.

W J Smith

Anim Feed Sci Technol 1993 Dec 2;45(1):57-64. Epub 2003 Oct 2.

Scottish Agricultural College, Veterinary Services, Mill of Craibstone, Bucksburn, Aberdeen AB2 9TS, UK.

The historical background of the present UK legislation is briefly reviewed, and the current legal situation as it pertains to the UK and European Community is summarised. The reasons for the inclusion of antibiotics in feed are outlined and discussed. In the first case, feedstuffs may have to be medicated for reasons of disease prevention and control. Read More

Effect of purified immunoglobulins or pooled colostrum on performance of rearing calves.

Anim Feed Sci Technol 1989 Nov 2;26(3):347-356. Epub 2003 Oct 2.

National Institute for Animal Nutrition, Agricultural Research Centre-Ghent, Scheldeweg 68, 9231 Melle-Gontrode Belgium.

Fifty Belgian white-blue male calves, purchased from the market at about 10 days of age, were divided into three groups. The basic diet was the same for all calves, and consisted of a restricted amount of commercial milk replacer containing 50 ppm zinc bacitracin and 20 pm virginiamycin, calf starter and grass hay. Weaning occurred when daily starter intake over 7 consecutive days averaged 0. Read More
