nabim – Group 1 Breadmaking Wheat Varieties

CEREALS 2014

 

Cereals UK was ye again a great event, and some of the best-known UK companies joined together to exhibit at a new location near Cambridge, UK.

An expected total of 26,000 visitors to over 500 stands made this annual outdoors exhibition a great time for all. In the “Post-Harvest Technologies” sections there were some great displays of machinery, products and services. The International Milling Directory was distributed to many visitors and exhibitors there. Some of the stands we visited were: HGCA, nabim, Bayer CropScience, Chief Industries UK, DanCorn, Guttridge, Cropmech, Bentall Rowlands and Satake.

The new animal feed section at HGCA’ s stand was of great interest to us at the International Milling Directory. There were some great pieces of information at the animal feed section, one advertised fact that 57% of UK wheat goes to animal feed seemed to be a very high number, that was assured to be true!

nabim also were hosted again in the HGCA stand, they were handing out 500 gram bags of flour at their stand. The UK grown and milled strong white bread flour was produced using nabim Group 1 breadmaking wheat varieties and was a great freebie.

 

 

MILLING WHEAT CHALLENGE 2014

nabim, supported by HGCA, announced the three farmer finalists for the 2014 Milling Wheat Challenge at the Cereals Event on Wednesday 11th June. Now in its fifth year, the aim of the Challenge is to find the country’s best milling wheat grower.

The 2014 finalists are:

  • Robert Chapman, South Lodge Farm, Barnwell, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire
  • Rick Davies, Newton Lodge, Clifton Reynes, Buckinghamshire
  • Joseph Edwards, Boddington Estates, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire
(Photo l-r: Finalist Rick Davies, his father Mike, finalist Robert Chapman, his father Bob and finalist Joseph Edwards)

As in previous years, the standard of the entries has remained very high and the judges had a tough job selecting the finalists.

Each of the finalists farm significant areas with wheat as their main crop. All three are forward-thinking, very technically competent and consistently grow quality crops of bread-making wheats.

The Challenge has become established as a formal recognition by Britain’s flour millers of how the country’s best growers combine attention to detail with end-customer awareness and business acumen to create a win: win for the whole wheat chain.

Judging of the three finalists will take place in June and July when visits will be made to their farms. Detailed discussions will take place with the growers themselves, their crops will be walked and inspections made of any storage facilities.

The judges for 2014 are Martin Savage from nabim, HGCA Head of Regional Development Richard Laverick and Mark Ireland, a Lincolnshire farmer and “Farmers Weekly Arable Farmer of the Year 2009”.

The finalists, together with leaders from the UK wheat supply chain, will be invited to a celebration dinner hosted by nabim at the Ritz Hotel in London where the winning grower will be announced.

118th IAOM Annual Conference and Expo

Darren Parris from the team here at Perendale headed to the IAOM annual conference recently . Between 19th and 23rd May, the worldwide community of millers, grain and feed professionals, manufacturers and service providers met in Omaha, Nebraska, USA for some truly great events, products and conferences. The International Milling Directory was there in force and three pictures highlight the role that hundreds of copies of the directory were distributed at the event.

We always enjoy the direct contact and place in the centre of the milling world, and look forward to next year’s event with the latest edition. If you wish to register or update your company in the directory, just head to www.internationalmilling.com and start your membership in our great international resource.

‘It’s about meeting the growing demand for better food’

VIV Europe 2014 has a strong feed flavour

Feed forms a focal point of VIV Europe 2014. Global developments in the composition and manufacturing of feeds will feature strongly at this international trade show. “We always cover the agribusiness spectrum from feed to meat in every VIV event. But Utrecht in May will underline the feed aspect in several ways,” confirms exhibition manager Ruwan Berculo. “For example, when our visitors arrive at the show they will find that a hall near to the main entrance contains displays by all the leading suppliers of feed manufacturing technology as well as for companies marketing ingredients and additives. A second hall only about a minute away on foot will have more nutritional products on show.”

GITP20100421VIV1070

Extend automation further into the process

Preliminary calculations tell us that there will be more than 40 exhibitors with machinery or equipment for feed mills. In addition about 15 companies supplying feed manufacturing systems will be represented on the stands forming a special pavilion. In addition global suppliers will shine their light on the profitability and competitiveness of feed manufacturing, by offering a view of how automation can be extended further into the processes of the mill. Ruwan continues: “Everyone in the feed business can gain from the knowledge shared during the various sessions as well as from seeing the innovations at display.“

It is something that has been emphasised repeatedly in the series of VIV Europe Roadshows which travelled around the world to promote the main event this spring. The directors and managers of feed manufacturing companies that attended these Roadshows have already made plans to attend the show in May, because of its strong feed flavour.

Intensification has to be sustainable

“We primarily aim to be a platform for all of the leading technology and know-how in the field of animal protein production in growth countries that currently have the greatest need for this. In addition, we of course also focus our range of solutions on major European countries and the United States in order to achieve even more innovative and higher quality livestock, meat and egg production systems in those countries – all of course with clear preconditions for sustainability because the world has now discovered that intensification has to be sustainable. This is something we are already seeing in the far afield countries, where there is more interest in animal welfare and food safety than you may imagine. Meeting the growing need for animal protein products is not just simply a case of even bigger and more intensive.GITP20100421VIV0515

With the theme of ‘sustainability’ Berculo is alluding to the misconception that this only relates to organic production. “It’s about answering the question about how we can meet the growing demand for better food and how we can develop that in a sustainable manner, throughout the world. What is required for that and meets the latest requirements will be here at the show. We have what has never been on show before, like we’ve promised.”

Alltech’s Mycotoxin Program, 37+, wins innovation award

Alltech has earned a one-star innovation award for its Mycotoxin Management Program, 37+, from INNOV’SPACE, a distinction program that awards new product and service innovations in agriculture. These distinctions are recognized during SPACE, the second largest international agriculture tradeshow in the world, attracting more than 110,000 spectators from 110 countries to Rennes, France, in its 27th edition this September 10 -13, 2013.

Alltech was among 64 INNOV’ SPACE award winners selected this year. An expert panel representing five different categories (machinery, feed, poultry, porcine and ruminate) awarded 14 two-star and 50 one-star distinctions on September 10 at SPACE.

In March this year, Alltech launched its five-point Alltech Mycotoxin Management Program as a response to the increasing threat of molds and mycotoxins on a farmer’s livestock and profitability. Alltech’s expert global mycotoxin management team of researchers and specialized consultants developed a five-point approach to manage the menace of multiple mycotoxins. This five-point approach redefines mycotoxin control and discloses the toxicity of multiple mycotoxins and their effects on animal health and performance.  

“We are very pleased to have been awarded this innovation distinction as we have just launched the 37+ program in France in June. This program is particularly advantageous to the farmer because it can be customized for each farm to identify, manage and control multiple mycotoxins,” said Julien Martin, Alltech general manager for France. “As an INNOV’SPACE award winner, we will be better able to demonstrate the proven results of the 37+ program.”

From left to right: Christophe Tanguy, ruminate sales manager Alltech France, accepts  the Innov’Space Trophy for the 37+  Mycotoxin Management Program from Michel Morin, vice-president of the Brittany region and Guillaume Garot, delegated minister of Agriculture, during the Awards Ceremony at SPACE, the second largest international agriculture tradeshow in the world in Rennes, France.

Alltech’s Mycotoxin Management Program offers key components for farms concerned with mycotoxin contamination:

-The 37+ program analyzes for multiple mycotoxin contamination in a given feed sample.
-The program provides a risk assessment and calculates the risk equivalent quantity (risk factor multiplied by the quantity of mycotoxin) for that particular feedstuff sample.
-The Mycotoxin Hazard Analysis Program (MIKO) from Alltech is designed to help improve production systems on farm and at feed mills by performing an audit; determining the critical control points; and establishing critical limits, monitoring procedures, implementing corrective actions, checking procedures and establishing protocols for recording information.
-The mycotoxin management team provides a complete contamination report and recommendations for management and nutritional applications that can assist with mycotoxin prevention and control. 

“By not using the 37+ test kit, an inaccurate assessment of mycotoxin contamination is more likely. If the farmer has a more complete overview of the mycotoxin problem then they can manage it more effectively, the 37+ test kit allows them to do this” said Emmanuel Landeau, technical manager of monogastric animals. “In addition, the 37+ test kit is easy to use and simplifies what could be considered to be a complicated process. The Mycotoxin Management Program then takes the results of the 37+ analysis, incorporates a variety of different factors such as species and life cycle stage before providing the final report and recommendation to the farmer.”

Alltech will showcase agriculture to a global audience during the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ 2014 in Normandy from August 23 to September 7, 2014 in Normandy, France.  During the Games, Alltech will host its Global 500 beef and dairy conference, bringing together experts to shape the future of beef and dairy worldwide. Alltech’s passion for agriculture is reflected through its high quality, natural and scientific innovations, like the 37+ Mycotoxin Management Program, for improving efficiency, profitability and sustainability on the farm.

The 2013 International Production & Processing Expo is over for another year. Officialy the last post of the event was yesterday but we wanted to surprise you with another one summing up this important event and also on how the many copies of The International Milling Directory that were taken to the show to be distributed to leading companies and organisation, and about the banner on the Perendale stand extolling the benefits of the IMD in its main digital form. This form is in IMD 24/7 on the PPLAPP (access the IMD web app by clicking on the first icon in the top-left hand corner called

‘Directory’). The app is completely free, just use your touchscreen device and save it as an app to your  device’s menu.

Overall, official press releases from IPPE today describe that it exceeded its expectations with more than 25,000 poultry, meat and feed industry leader attendees from all over the world. In addition, the show had 1,189 exhibitors with more than 430,000 net square feet of exhibit space. Final numbers will be released after the registration database has been audited for duplications. Sponsored by U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, American Feed Industry Association, and the American Meat Institute, IPPE is the world’s largest annual poultry, meat, and feed industry event of its kind.

“We are extremely pleased with the number of exhibitors and attendees on the exhibit floor for IPPE. We have had a great turn-out this year, and the energy and excitement on the floor has been apparent all week,” remarked the three trade associations.

The central attraction was the large exhibit floor. Exhibitors presented the latest innovations in equipment, supplies, and services utilised by industry firms in the production and processing of poultry, eggs, feed products, and meat. Many companies use the annual event to highlight their new products. All phases of the poultry, feed, and meat industry were represented, from live production and process events at IPPE.

Dr Mian Riaz of Texas A&M University, a contributor to both International Aquafeed and Grain &Feed Milling Technology, visited our stand on day two to meet with Roger Gilberting to further processing and packaging.

An expanded education program complemented the exhibits by keeping industry management informed on the latest issues. This year’s educational line-up featured 15 associated conferences at the event, ranging from an antibiotic conference on current issues for the poultry and egg industry to an international feed education program to international regulatory topics for meat.

The College Student Career Program attracted more than 400 students from 26 universities throughout the United States, while the new International Student Career Program brought in 13 students from four countries. The graduating students interviewed for jobs and internships with 93 human resource representatives from 28 industry and allied firms. They were also able to visit the exhibit floor to see the most current technology used in today’s poultry industry.

Other featured events included a Tech XChange programme, the International Poultry Scientific Forum, Meat Me in @LANTA activities, publisher-sponsored conference programmes, and the Pet Food Conference, all of which made the 2013 IPPE the premiere annual feed and protein event of the western hemisphere.

The International Milling Directory now looks ahead to the next relevant event, GEAPS Exchange 2013 which coincidentally is also in the US. It will take place from Sunday 24th to Tuesday 26th February.
