Problems in production and use of feed grade corn steep liquor powder

- Mar 21, 2020-

Feed-grade corn steep liquor powder refers to the small amount but significant effect in the process of adding a small amount or a small amount of material to the feed during the production and processing of the feed. Feed additives are important raw materials for modern feed industry. It has obvious effects on improving the nutritional value of basic feed, improving animal production performance, protecting animal health, saving feed cost and improving the quality of animal products.


The following problems exist in the production and use of feed-grade corn steep liquor powder:

1. Abuse of antibiotics and hormones in feed additives. In the production of early feed additives, people who use low-dose antibiotics or sulfa drugs to prevent livestock and poultry diseases or diarrhea. This low dose of antibiotics will disrupt the ecological balance of microorganisms (including pathogenic microorganisms) in the natural environment; residues in food will seriously affect the treatment of human diseases and human genetics.

Therefore, Britain, the United States, Japan and other countries have clearly stipulated that certain antibiotics cannot be used in feed additives, such as penicillin, streptomycin, oxytocin, linomycin, and neomycin dry and wet tanks. Only high safety can be used, and Does not cooperate with the clinical practice of special antibiotics for livestock and poultry. Some hormones, such as estrogen and androgens, are not allowed.


2. Some trace elements are used in excessive or insufficient amounts in the feed. Commonly used trace elements are iron, copper, manganese, zinc, iodine, selenium, etc. After the elements enter the body, the ions, molecules, or compounds with complex structural states have different biochemical effects in different states. Too little can lead to insufficient nutrition and too much can lead to poisoning or imbalance. So the content must be appropriate and mixed evenly, otherwise it will have the opposite effect.


3. Exaggerate the role of feed additives, feed additives to balance the diet, promote animal husbandry production, the growth effect is positive. It is generally 5% -25% higher than the control group without the use of additives. However, some products are exaggerated in advertising, and these unrealistic publicity should be cautious.


Microbial feed additives are microbial products that replace or balance one or more strains in an animal ecosystem. In a narrow sense, it is a microbial product that stimulates the growth of beneficial bacteria and the growth and reproduction of harmful bacteria.


Feed grade corn steep liquor powder contains a large number of beneficial bacteria (active lactic acid bacteria, bifidobacteria, bacillus), complex enzymes, chelating peptides, mold fungicides, etc., as feed into livestock and poultry, can quickly reproduce, on the one hand metabolites and intestines Daotoxin inhibits the growth of other harmful flora, on the other hand, it forms a normal microbial flora in the host, which mainly synthesizes vitamins for the host, provides nutrition, and prevents the invasion of pathogens.
