Fermentation of Non-GMO Protein Sources

In Europe, interest for local grown protein-rich raw materials is growing. Both farmers as well feed mills are interested to look into alternatives for the import of (GMO) soy product. Dr.FERM has done several R&D projects to test protein-rich feedstuffs, like Yellow Peas, Beans, Sunflower Meal, and is also involved in a project focused on Rapeseed Cake and Rapeseed Meal.

Fermented Raw Materials in Poultry Diets

Dr.FERM is the ideal partner for innovations. In literature dozens of studies are published in which fermented raw materials show beneficial effects on performance, efficiency, and health. Microbial fermentation is needed for more healthy and efficient egg and meat production.

Dr.FERM experience in liquid diets afor pigs, makes him the ideal innovation partner in optimising diets for BSFL production. The challenge is to stabilise and optimise digestion of the final diets, which are high in moisture and stored for up to 10 days in warm and high-moisture circumstances. Fermentation might be the key-factor to reduce feed costs in BSFL production. Dr.FERM is involved in several (small) tests in practice, to develop ideas and concepts in optimising feed rations and feed costs for production of BSFL.

Innovative start of Calf-Life

Dr.FERM developped FERMhealth concept for newborn, suckling and weaned piglets. Goal is to improve piglet quality, and to prevent diarrhoea without using antibiotics. A young calf is more or less comparable with a piglet: mono-gastric animals which are sensible for high feed-intake and switches from mother milk to milkreplacers and/or plantorigine raw materials.

Solid-State Fermentation for Shrimps

Dr.FERM is the ideal partner for  farmers, and feed mills to develop practical applications. To replace expensive fish meal, fermentation is an interesting technology in shrimp / aqua production. In Ecuador, Dr.FERM is involved in production of solid-state fermented soybean meal. We introduce a concept, in which not only performance efficiency, but also the gut health is improved. Microbial fermentation is a game-changer for aqua and shrimp production.
