A recent webinar hosted by the Schothorst Feed Research presented findings from a 5-year research project into ways to increase circularity in animal feed. The research looked at a range of by-products and co-products including PAPs to assess how they could be better utilised in animal feed to close the protein gap.
All seven presentations and the discussion are available to view online:
- Project Background Gert van Duinkeren, Wageningen Livestock Research
- Developments regarding PAPs over the last ten years Dr Martin Alm, EFPRA
- Nutritional value of PAPs Roger Davin, Schothorst Feed Research
- Consumer Perception Gemma Tacken, Wageningen University
- How to improve applicability of wet co-products in pig diets Martin de Grot, Bonda
- Processing on novel proteins and use in broiler diets Ellen van Eerden., Schothorst Feed Research
- Screening checklist for applicability of new feed materials Sharon van Schaijk, Agruniek Rijn vallei
Of particular interest to renderers are presentation 3 on the nutritional value of PAPs and presentation 4 on consumer perceptions of animal by-products in the for chain.
