  • Feed Additives is an Ingredient that alters production, metabolism, digestion…..that is not itself a nutrient. Some Common Feed Additives Sodium bicarbonate, Magnesium oxide, Yeast culture, Direct Fed Microbials, Niacin, Zinc-Methionine, Ionophores, Biotin. Four factors can be considered to determine if a feed additive should be used: anticipated response, economic return, available research, and field responses.
  • Several feed additives contain nutrients such as sodium in sodium bicarbonate or protein in yeast culture. Feed additives are not a requirement or guarantee for high productivity or profitability. Animal feed accounts for a huge proportion of the world’s harvest – estimates range from one third to nearly halfi. A range of crops can be used in animal feed, the most common are soya, maize, oilseed rape and cotton seeds.
  • For many decades antibiotics (so called growth promoters) have been used as feed additives in various species of farm animals, to reduce the frequency of diarrhoea under certain conditions. Furthermore, in most cases performance parameters like body weight gain or feed conversion ratio improves to up to 5%.
  • The compound feed preparation process requires: high accuracy and precision of weighing, feed ingredient handling and processing, mixing, packing, labeling.
  • Cross-contamination of animal feed in the mill was a serious concern for the industry, even before the BSE period. A number of possible opportunities for the occurrence of low-level cross- contamination existed, not only during compounding of the feed, but also during manufacture and delivery of the raw materials, and during delivery of the finished product.
  • Enzymes are biological catalysts and they improve the nutrient availability from feedstuffs, lower feed costs and reduce out put of waste into the environment. Although enzymes have been in use for a long time in other applications like detergents, textiles, baking, brewing etc their use in the animal feed has been a recent phenomenon. This is because enzymes need to be designed to suit the application. Industrial enzymes are mainly produced from microorganisms by a process of fermentation and extraction.
  • The concept of using probiotics or direct fed microbials in animal feed particularly poultry and aquaculture is slowly becoming popular. The common organisms in probiotic products are Aspergillus oryzae, Lactobacillus acidophilus, L. bulgaricus, L.plantarium, Bifidobacterium bifidium, Streptococcus lactis and Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
  • The concept of prebiotics in feed is fairly recent. Prebiotics are basically feed for probiotics where they are resistant to attack by endogenous enzymes and hence reach the site for proliferation of gut microflora. Some of the prebiotics, which are currently used in animal feed, are Mannan- oligosaccharides (MOS), fructo- oligosaccharide and mixed oligo- dextran. Mannan- oligosaccharides are mainly obtained from cell walls of yeasts.
  • Essential aminoacids are added as supplement to the feed to get a balanced aminoacid profile. Since the aminoacid profiles of the ingredients do not match the profile of aminoacid requirement of the specific species, supplemental essential aminoacid are added. The new trend is to formulate diets on digestible amino acid levels thereby reducing the requirement of protein. So far lysine and methionine have been used as supplements.
  • Metabolic modifiers are a group of compounds that modify animal metabolism in specific and directed ways. They have the overall effect of improving productive efficiency (weight gain or milk yield per feed unit) improving carcass composition (lean:fat ratio) in growing animals, increasing milk yield in lactating animals and decreasing animal waste per production unit.
  • The processing and manufacturing of feed along with the efficient use of feed by cattle also contribute to the cost of feed. The demand for compound feed and Urea Molasses Blocks (UMB) is increasing day by day with the increase in awareness among farmers. 
  • Feed additives and management tools such as bST (bovine somatotropin) play an essential role in enhancing production and yield of milk and milk components. The need for a particular feed additive and its effectiveness depend upon a variety of factors. Feeding strategies that optimize rumen function result in maximum milk production and milk component percentages and yield.
  • Maintaining adequate quality control of drug testing and production processes requires the ability to rapidly and efficiently extract prepared animal feed products. Current sample extraction techniques are labor and time intensive, and are often responsible for communication delays between manufacturing and quality control.
  • The rising demand for meat protein has triggered an increase in the production of animal feed. This, in turn, has promoted the uptake of feed additives across Southeast Asia. The European Union ban on the use of antibiotics as growth promoters will also affect the Southeast Asian animal feed additives market. Accordingly, non-antibiotic growth promoters as well as animal feed additives that offer cost benefits and have reduced environmental impact, will experience strong growth. 
  • Today, about 3800 feed mills manufacture more than 80 percent of the world’s industrial feed. The world’s 10 largest feed manufacturers produce less than 65 million tones per year - less than 11 percent of global feed output. So, the global feed industry still remains broadly based with many locals and regional commercial feed companies as well as specialized firms.
  • The animal feed industry expects to increase its production to 61 million tons, which implies a growth of 30 percent in four years, while the per capita meat consumption is likely to reach around 37 kg over the next 20 years.
  • Today, over 250 companies market a wide range of feed additives, tonics, vitamin supplements, antibacterials, anthelmintics, biologicals, enzymes, herbals, antibiotics, probiotics and others. However, almost 70% of this market is controlled by 15 companies who have leveraged their marketing and distribution strengths to tap the market potential. They are bullish about the growth in consumption considering the growth trends in the poultry and dairy segments.
  • Overall, the feed antibiotics market with the poultry and swine industries as its main clientele has developed in terms of research, product development and marketing, quality and intellectual property protection. The rising demand for animal proteins, price stability, continuous research on animal care, and a concern for food safety will continue to fuel market growth.
