  • odour from Animal Production facilities its relationship to diet
    Nutrition Research Reviews, 2005
    Co-Authors: Phung Dinh Le, A J A Aarnink, N W M Ogink, P M Becker, M.w.a. Verstegen


    Though bad odour has always been associated with Animal Production, it did not attract much research attention until in many countries the odour Production and emission from intensified Animal Production caused serious nuisance and was implicated in the health problems of individuals living near Animal farms. Odour from pig Production facilities is generated by the microbial conversion of feed in the large intestine of pigs and by the microbial conversion of pig excreta under anaerobic conditions and in manure stores. Assuming that primary odour-causing compounds arise from an excess of degradable protein and a lack of specific fermentable carbohydrates during microbial fermentation, the main dietary components that can be altered to reduce odour are protein and fermentable carbohydrates. In the present paper we aim to give an up-to-date review of studies on the relationship between diet composition and odour Production, with the emphasis on protein and fermentable carbohydrates. We hypothesise how odour might be changed and/or reduced by altering the diet of pigs. Research so far has mainly focused on the single effects of different levels of crude protein and fermentable carbohydrates on odour Production. However, also important for odour formation are the sources of protein and fermentable carbohydrates. In addition, it is not only the amount and source of these compounds that is important, but also the balance between them. On the basis of our review of the literature, we hypothesise that odour nuisance from pig Production facilities might be reduced significantly if there is an optimum balance between protein and fermentable carbohydrates in the diet of pigs.

  • Implications of Animal Production technology for the environment
    Journal of Agricultural & Environmental Ethics, 1993
    Co-Authors: G.b.c. Backus, L. A. Den Hartog, M.w.a. Verstegen


    Intensive Animal Production has adverse effects on the quality of the environment. The pollution of air, water and soil has become a serious problem in the Netherlands due to the failure of the market to convey to the individual farmer the social cost associated with agricultural Production. This paper focuses on the resources for the increase in Animal Production looking at the economic aspects of technological advance at the farm level and their effects on the environment. It concludes that environmental policies that take into account environmental costs and benefits as well as income consequences must be further developed.

  • Technological innovation and entrepreneurship in Animal Production
    , 2020
    Co-Authors: Júlio Otávio, Concepta Mcmanus, Jardim Barcellos, Luiz Antonio Queiroz Filho, Alessandra Carla Ceolin, Guilherme Cunha Malafaia


    The classic model for producing knowledge and technology has changed. A new conceptual process is necessary to meet the assumptions of the future dimension of Animal Production. It should provide answers to the key drivers of livestock Production, represented by population growth and urbanization, economic development and globalization and changes in market demand. Therefore, to address this scenario is necessary to innovate in a holistic and sometimes diffuse manner in Production processes. From this perspective, this article looks at technological innovation in the field of Animal Production, with emphasis on new knowledge in the area of ruminant Production. Additionally, it looks at the model for carrying out research so that the generation of new knowledge is integrated to meet problems identified as important to society. Moreover, the demand for a new professional in the field of agricultural sciences is also discussed.

  • infrared thermography in Animal Production

    Co-Authors: Concepta Mcmanus, Candice Bergmann Tanure, Vanessa Peripolli, Luiza Seixas, Vivian Fischer, A M Gabbi, Silvio Renato Oliveira Menegassi, Marcelo Tempel Stumpf, G J Kolling, Eduardo Antunes Dias


    Infrared thermography applications in Animal Production systems.Infrared thermography is a useful tool as index physiologic changing in Animals.Infrared thermography is a noninvasive remote sensing method.Limitations and factors that must be considered when using infrared thermography. Infrared thermography technology is a noninvasive method that has been used to indicate thermal biometric changes in Animal metabolism resulting from increased body temperature and changes in blood flow in response to environmental or physiological conditions. Thus, this technology can be a useful tool and general stress indicator as well as indicate inflammatory processes, pain and disease. Therefore, this manuscript aims to review the use of this technology in Animal Production, addressing aspects of heat and physiological stress, metabolism, nutrition, inflammatory processes, diseases, ectoparasite detection and reProduction.
