Albion flour mill silos demolished

October 8, 2014

 – Brisbane Times and Sun-Herald journalist

“For years they towered over Brisbane’s inner-north. But on Wednesday, with no fanfare, they were consigned to history. The Albion flour mill’s silos, which stood tall even after an arson attack destroyed the mill itself last year, were demolished on Wednesday to make way for new unit blocks.”

The Alltech Poultry Seminar

With high feed costs, increased government regulations and consumer demands intensifying, the future of the poultry industry is difficult to predict. This was the focus of Alltech’s 10th Poultry Solutions Seminar, held in Hannover, Germany on the 12th of November, where a number of distinguished poultry industry experts gave presentations on their cutting edge research and on the issues that they believe will be of most importance.

Antibiotic resistance is getting more and more publicity and governments are starting  to take notice. Dr. Marcel Boereboom, of the Royal Dutch Society for Veterinary Medicine, discussed the impact this is having on the Dutch industry, following a study by the Dutch Health Council. He described how the government of the Netherlands have, to date, banned certain antibiotics and implemented a targeted reduction of 50% (of 2009 levels) of the total amount of antibiotics used in food producing animals by 2013. This has had a huge impact on how poultry is produced.

Focussing on how to deal with this issue was Professor Stephen Collett from the University of Georgia. He recommended a shift in emphasis in gut health management, from working against pathogens, to working with the intestinal microbial community. This involves improving performance by accelerating the evolution and maintaining the stability of favourable intestinal microbiota. The three most important areas of an effective intestinal health management programme include: “seeding” the gut with favourable organisms, “feeding” the favourable organisms and “weeding” out the unfavourable organisms.

Professor Roselina Angel, of the University of Maryland, described to attendees at the Poultry Solutions Seminar research on how neonatal conditioning, resulting in epigenetic changes shows great promise in terms of improving phosphorus (P) utilisation. “By applying a moderate P deficiency in young chicks, the bird is conditioned to utilise P more efficiently throughout its life. The timing of the conditioning is critical and requires a clear understanding of skeletal growth, the main driver of calcium (Ca) and P requirements,” she explained.

Controlling campylobacter, a bacteria that poses no danger to poultry, but is the leading cause of human bacterial gastroenteritis, was the topic of Professor Frank Pasmans’ presentation, researched at Ghent University. When a single bird is infected, the infection spreads quickly through the flock, resulting in the majority of birds being colonised within only a few days after Campylobacter entry. He explained how, overall, the outlook is bleak if the flock has been infected but results of recent studies, using oral administration of bovine or chicken immunoglobulins of hyper-immunised animals and the use of bacteriocins to limit caecal colonisation, look promising. “We are still quite a way from commercialised products but the future does seem to be positive,” he explained.

To deal with unpredictable feed costs and an inconsistent supply, Professor David Roland of Auburn University,  recommends his “econometric approach to the feeding of layers. “Feeding correctly is challenging because nutrient requirements and dietary levels needed for optimal returns are continually changing” said Prof. Roland as he opened his talk.

He presented his calculation tool called Econometrics to attendees, demonstrating how optimal econometric feeding can improve performance, returns and help regulate feed and egg prices at the same time.

No Limitations for New Romer Labs Product

Leading global food-safety diagnostic experts Romer Labs have announced the launch of a new product for an effective clean-up prior to multi-mycotoxin analysis. The MycoSpinTM 400 Multitoxin column enhances the performance of LC-MS/MS methods and promises straightforward sample preparation with no limitations by molecular mass of the analyte
The machines cleanup columns, in conjunction with BiopureTM 13C labeled internal standards, achieve new performance levels in LC-MS/MS analysis and furthermore, BiopureTM 13C isotope-labeled internal standards overcome the ionization effect by stabilizing the system to the effects of signal suppression and signal enhancement.
Thanks to 30years of experience, Romer Labs has developed a series of method applications using this new approach of a MycoSpinTM cleanup with BiopureTM internal standards. These methods are validated for the simultaneous detection of multiple mycotoxins in cereal grains, mixed feeds, and corn, including corn by-products.
Romer Labs is the leading company in LC-MS/MS applications for multi-mycotoxin analysis. Its broad range of innovative products include the largest portfolio of reference materials worldwide, as well as a series of cleanup-columns for extract purification ranging from the well-known MycoSep® columns to specific antibody-based immunoaffinity StarLineTM columns.

Romer Labs, founded in Washington, in 1982 is a leading developing manufacturer of test kits for food allergens, food pathogens, mycotoxins, veterinary drug residues and other food contaminants. The company also operates four accredited, full-service laboratories on three continents. Romer Labs has facilities in Austria, Brazil, China, Malaysia, Singapore, UK and the USA. For more than 30 years, Romer Labs has been a trusted partner for the food and feed industry worldwide.

Record Breaking Year for Eurotier 2012

It was a bumper week in Hannover last week (13-16th) as nearly 200,000 animal husbandry farmers & experts and international visitors attended Eurotier 2012.

The worlds largest exhibition of its kind, Eurotier brought together 2,445 direct exhibitors including Perendale Publishers who were media-supporters for the event. Dr. Reinhard Grandke, Chief Executive Officer for Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft (DLG) who organized it announced that, “EuroTier 2012 has reached new record levels,” when speaking to the press in HaNnover at the close of EuroTier on 16 November 2012.

Perhaps more compelling proof of Eurotier’s stature of success this year has to be that half of the 2,445 that exhibited had come from outside of Germany, representing a 40% increase on 2010.  The number of visitors was also up by 10% this year on the previous forum, 160,000 of them went for the latest information and future technology which is crucial to farming in the 21st century.

A stand-alone feature of the new look Eurotier was the unique program addressing feed and animal health which is an essential

Akzo Nobel, were one of the industry leading companies that Darren had the pleasure of meeting.

sector of the industry with around 22% of the IMD being made up of companies who specialize in animal-feed based activities. Perendale Publishers very own International Sales and Marketing Manager, Darren Parris, managed to catch up with some who attended including AB Vista, Norel and Sonac. He said, “I’ve loved meeting up with so many of them with this being my first Eurotier, you get so much more out of meeting people in person and to have everybody under one roof has been fantastic.”

BioEnergy remains a very important subject as we continue to try and source safer and more economical ways of fueling the planet. BioEnergy Decentral reported a constant number of around 42,000 visitors. Despite the current market situation in Germany, the share of international visitors increased by 12% compared with 2010, which is attributable above all to the technology leadership in this industry.

We’ll have more from our Eurotier round-up over the coming days, and work has already begun on planing for the next EuroTier which will be held in Hannover from 11 to 14 November 2014. In the meantime why don’t you tell us your favourite story from the show by commenting on this article, you can also comment on our twitter page @IMD12.

We at Perendale wish to thank everybody that we spoke to throughout the event and look forward to seeing you again soon!

Until next time
