According to a comprehensive study, reducing the size of parts of feed for every 100 microns improves feed efficiency by 1%, which corresponds to the economic efficiency of 0.7 – 0.9 USD per pig on an average farm in the United States.
On average, the use of modern methods of granulation also showed serious improvement in operational performance. The conversion rate in this case is increased by 4-6%, while the weights - up to 4% granular feed.
Scientists say that the most promising technique is the fine grinding of feed before pelleting. Until today that few people apply such technology, however, preliminary tests show that it can significantly improve the economic efficiency of pig farms.
However, in the long term, experts have expressed concerns about the possible emergence of imbalances between supply and demand. It is expected that by 2020 in several key regions of the world will be commissioned a production capacity for 100 thousand tons of flour rabotoy, at the same time during this period the market will experience volatility in demand due to the reduction in demand from salmon farms in Norway and Chile, as well as the transition to alternative ingredients of pig producers in China.
According to experts, the cell wall of green algae is rich in sulfated polysaccharides, which have a number of physical and chemical properties that make them potentially suitable for use in the pharmaceutical industry for the production of additives for animals and for humans.
Digestive tract extracts of these algae, stimulate the production of cytokines – element of the immune system, which increases the efficiency of the immune response and allows the body to better fight off harmful pathogens.

In the course of the study, the scientists replaced 10% of rybarstvi flour flour of worms when feeding trout. As a result key production indicators during the whole period of cultivation remained normal. Similar experience on broilers has enabled researchers to achieve the effect of improving the gain by 2% and reducing overall water consumption by 15%.

The supply of oil seeds in Turkey bring the most revenue at the export of Ukrainian agricultural products in the Caspian-black sea regionAccording to the results of the export trade of Ukrainian agricultural products with the countries of the Caspian-black sea region in 2015, the largest revenue - $389,5 million - was secured at shipment of the Ukrainian oilseed in Turkey. This figure also amounted to 70% of the total revenue from the export of oilseeds in the major countries of the Caspian-black sea region (Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Iran, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Georgia and Armenia), which last year reached $of 558.5 million
As noted by the experts of IA "APK-inform", the total volume of exports from Ukraine to Turkey by the end of 2015 amounted to $2.8 billion, which is the highest rate among these countries and corresponds to 55% of total revenue from deliveries to the region ($5 billion). In addition to the oilseeds, the most popular Ukrainian agrarian products of the group in Turkey in 2015 was residues and waste from food production (export revenues - us $165 million), fats and oils ($117,7 million) and crops ($57 million).
More detailed information about prospects of development of trade in the Caspian-black sea region and the presence of Ukrainian products can be found by visiting the Caspian-black sea agrarian Congress, which takes place on 12-13 April 2016 in Baku (Azerbaijan).
"The possibilities of EU market and stimulate entrepreneurs to invest in this direction," she said.
The Deputy Minister informed that the acreage of flax in Ukraine amount to 35 thousand hectares mainly in Zaporizhzhya, Kherson, Odesa, Kharkiv, Mykolaiv and Dnipropetrovsk regions. "These figures are extremely low when compared with the possible potential. While the market is holding back the shortage of quality seeds and especially cultural practices. Although the profitability of flax production is potentially much higher than, for example, wheat. Flax seeds are in demand in the EU. The increase in production will lead to increase of export deliveries to our key partners in Turkey, Israel and Egypt. Ukrainian flax is non-GMO, and this significantly enhances its competitive advantage over flax in North America," – said V. Rutytskaya.
She also added that the Ukrainian coriander in demand not only in the EU but also in Asia, and "the level of profitability of this crop is tremendous."
"Given the fact that the ethnic markets in the EU increases every year, demand for this crop will grow. Therefore, the Ukrainian coriander will continue in demand", – considers the Deputy Minister.
