Microbiological control of raw materials and finished feed with the right use of acids is an essential step towards controlling feed quality.
Liquid feeding can reduce pig feed costs when combined with inexpensive industrial by-products that often are given away for the price of their transportation.
Buffering capacity is an important aspect often overlooked when it comes to using "conventional" ingredients, like zinc oxide.
Zinc is a problem area for regions with intensive densities of animal production, and we should anticipate tighter control over its use and disposal.
