Feed Testing

Feed Testing

Forage; In the Regulation on the Supply and Use of Feed on the Market, it is defined as "any substance or product used for oral feeding of animals, including processed, partially processed or unprocessed feed additives." In terms of animal food production, feed quality is very important in animal nutrition. Animals meet their energy needs from carbohydrates and fats in their feed. Fats are important in animal nutrition because they have more energy than carbohydrates and proteins. Fat, cellulose, starch contents etc. especially in the preparation of mixed feeds. It should be determined in accordance with the standards and kept under control with analysis.

Our laboratories serving in many provinces in turkey, "Feed Testing" in accordance with legal regulations and standards relating to Türkak accreditation is carried out.

Roughages used in animal nutrition; It consists of structural carbohydrates such as cellulose, lignin, hemicellulose and organic acids and sugars. Structural carbohydrates are divided into NDF (Neutral Detergent Fiber), ADF (Acid Detergent Fiber) and ADL (Acid Detergent Lignin).

Structural carbohydrates are called NDF (Neutral Detergent Fiber), ADF (Acid Detergent Fiber) and ADL (Acid Detergent Lignin) due to the neutral detergent and acid detergent solvents used in the determination of cellulose fractions.

NDF (Neutral Detergent Fiber): It consists of hemicellulose, cellulose, lignin and ash insoluble in nitrogen and acid attached to the cell wall, which are insoluble in neutral detergent solution. NDF should be used to increase ruminant productivity and to maintain animal health.

ADF (Acid Detergent Fiber): The ADF amount in the feed gives information about the quality of the feed. The high amount of ADF in the feed, the digestibility of the feeds is low.

ADL (Acid Detergent Lignin): It is a compound that affects the animals' ability to digest herbs. As the plants mature, their lignin content increases and their digestibility decreases. It is a parameter made to determine the lignin content of plants.

It provides many advantages other than having fat in feeds, containing essential fatty acids and giving energy.

Fats; It is a source of choline, carriers of fat-soluble vitamins, increases feed utilization, facilitates pellet feed production, gives flavor to feeds and increases consumption.

PCBs can be produced directly, or they emerge as by-products after processes such as PVC production, pesticide production or waste incineration. It is necessary to prevent PCBs from mixing with feeds and animals to be fed with these feeds. PCB analysis is an important parameter to prevent it from reaching humans through animal meat.

Baits consist of water and dry matter. Dry matter consists of organic and inorganic parts. While nutrients such as protein, fat, cellulose, starch, sugar in the feed form the organic part; Macro elements such as calcium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, salt (NaCl) and micro elements such as iron, copper and zinc form the inorganic part.

The entire amount of ash remaining as a result of burning is not considered as an inorganic substance. Because in the feed; It can be found in elements such as soil, sand, and dust. Therefore, the amount of ash obtained is called crude ash.

You can contact us for "Determination of Raw Ash" in Feed.

It is based on the principle that the energy is released with the complete burning of the baits in the bomb calorimeter and this energy is measured as heat. The heat of combustion obtained is indicated as the total energy content of the feed.

The energy value of feeds can be determined by calorimeter as well as by using the values obtained as a result of feed chemical analysis.

Analysis of "Calculation of Metabolic Energy Value"; We do it in poultry and ruminant feeds.

Environmental pollution, technological processes, packaging materials are factors that cause contamination in food production and pose a risk to human health. Environmental and soil pollution, directly or indirectly, causes pollution of feed resources.

Especially Aluminum (Al), Antimony (Sb), Arsenic (As), Copper (Cu), Barium (Ba), Beryllium (Be), Boron (B), Mercury (Hg), Zinc (Zn), Iron (Fe), Phosphorus (P), Gallium (Ga), Silver (Ag), Cadmium (Cd), Tin (Sn), Calcium (Ca), Cobalt (Co), Chromium (Cr), Lead (Pb), Lithium (Li), Magnesium (Mg), Manganese (Mn), Molybdenum (Mo), Nickel (Ni), Potassium (K), Selenium (Se), Cesium (Cs), Sodium (Na), Tellurium (Te), Vanadium The consumption of elements such as (Vn) with feed is harmful and unacceptable in terms of animal health and development.

The "Determination of Metals and Other Elements" process is carried out in feed and feed additives.

You can contact us for "Determination of Metals and Other Elements" in Feed.

Protein determination in feed is based on the determination of nitrogen amount. The amount of protein determined by the amount of nitrogen is called the "crude protein amount".

Not all nitrogen in feed is bound as protein. Besides nitrogen in protein structure; Amides, Free amino acids, Glycosides, Alkaloids and Ammonium salts also contain nitrogen. Therefore, the amount of protein determined is the amount of crude protein.

You can contact us for "Protein Determination" in Feed.

Determination of sugar in feed is a method based on taking advantage of the reducing feature of carbohydrates. All monosaccharides are reducing properties. Likewise, disaccharides can show reducing properties.

Starch, which is one of the main energy sources of animals, is easily digestible carbohydrates together with sugars in feed.

Mycotoxins are types of metabolism produced by molds that show toxic effects on humans and animals. The structures of most of these metabolism types are not fully known. However, some biologically active species may also exhibit fatal effects on living things depending on the doses they take and personal resistance.
