Finisher pig feeds have the greatest contribution to the feed cost and therefore optimizing efficiency and growth rate during this period is an economic must. This seminar will review sustainable nutritional options which can be considered to enhance growth performance and efficiency in finisher pigs, as well as reducing feed costs whilst maintaining carcass quality. 

Kostas Stamatopoulos - DSM Conference topic:
Choosing the right feed enzymes for the Asian - Pacific feed industry
Kostas Stamatopoulos - DSM

The use of Enzymes in the feed industry, has become a well-established practice and many commercial products are available. As a result, feed enzyme suppliers are constantly looking for ways of differentiating themselves from one another. This has led to feed enzymes users being recipients of both information and even mis-information, which in some cases is void of clarity of product forms for different applications. This presentation will provide information on product form differentiation, with special focus on heat stability, mixability. Also, will address which product form is suitable for the different feed manufacturing processes.

Aurélie de Ratuld Conference topic:
Creating value with alternative protein sourcing while ensuring palatable pet foods
Aurélie de Ratuld

Aurélie de Ratuld, PhD, R&D cat platform manager for Diana Pet Food, poses these questions: Can the pet food industry continue to please pets and meet the challenges of a global growing planet in terms of animal protein availability, food safety crises, sustainability and custom barriers? What are the alternatives for technologies and sourcing, and can vegetable proteins be part of the answer? de Ratuld conducted research to understand the sensory drivers of cats and dogs and how they could allow for the use of alternative sourcing to target specific components that guarantee pets’ enjoyment.

Graduated in food science, de Ratuld owns a PhD in biotechnology applied to aroma. With seven years of experience as a flavorist and biotechnologist, she joined Diana Pet Food in 2001 to work on innovation projects for both cat and dog palatability.

Shiguang Yu, PhD Conference topic:
Health benefits of nutritional lipids beyond regulatory recommendations
Shiguang Yu, PhD

Shiguang Yu, PhD, global technical manager for DSM Nutritional Products, presents new research findings that provide evidence-based guidance for the improvement of pet food quality and new product development via the health benefits of nutritional lipids. According to these new studies, significant health benefits can be achieved when nutritional lipids are used in pet food beyond the recommendations of the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) and FEDIAF (the European Pet Food Industry). For example, higher dietary DHA concentration improves visual acuity and trainability of growing puppies; pet foods with high fish oil concentrations improve clinical signs of dogs and cats with joint disease; and nutritional lipids in various forms significantly improve cognitive function in old dogs and cats.  

Yu holds a doctorate in nutrition from Wageningen University in the Netherlands and an MBA from Baker University in the US. He has over 20 years of experience working at leading global pet food companies in the areas of pet food formulation and product design, new ingredient evaluation, product development and clinical trials. Yu taught nutrition classes in universities and is an experienced speaker at international trade shows and professional conferences.

Dejan Miladinovic Conference topic:
Using novel technologies to extract pet food nutrients from single-cell organisms
Dejan Miladinovic

Dejan Miladinovic, quality control manager at the Centre for Feed Technology, Norwegian University of Life Sciences, explains how proteins obtained from single-cell organisms have an optimal profile of amino acids, with high nitrogen retention and high digestibility in model animals. However, extracting protein from single-cell organisms is challenging. Pulsed electric fields, enzymes and the assistance of high-pressure processing may overcome these challenges, helping ensure sustainable pet food ingredient sourcing and manufacturing.

Miladinovic has worked at Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) since 2005, teaching courses related to feed technology at the master level and researching within the same field.

Anders Haubjerg, PhD Conference topic:
An energy efficient pet food process design for chilling, cooling and drying
Anders Haubjerg, PhD

Anders Haubjerg, PhD, senior process engineer for Graintec A/S, presents a process design for extruded pet food production facilities that integrates the operation of the dryer, cooler and chiller to elevate overall process energy efficiency. Process simulations across a wide range of operating conditions and climates demonstrate that the outlined process design promises attractive improvements in energy efficiency. In addition, the design can be configured to conserve fresh water and reduce odor emission, and process modeling can predict operating points and identify expected levels of efficiency improvement as well as payback times for adopting the design.

Haubjerg holds a master of science in chemical engineering from University of Southern Denmark and UCD Ireland, and an industrial doctorate in model-based optimization and design of drying processes for extruded feed production. He has six years of industry experience within simulation and modeling of heat and mass transfer. Haubjerg has published in national science magazines, the International Aquafeed Directory and authored eight scientific articles on mechanical durability and energy efficiency in extruded feed production.

Fernando Roberti Conference topic:
Beta-glucans effects in pets: benefits and possible applications
Fernando Roberti

Fernando Roberti, technical expert for pet food at Biorigin, provides scientific evidence of the health benefits of beta-glucans for pets. These physiologically active compounds, generally considered biological response modifiers, can stimulate the immune system of dogs and cats and safely provide anti-inflammatory properties, while offering a solution for pet food companies to differentiate their products in a fast-changing market.  

Roberti received his bachelor’s degree in veterinary medicine and his master of science in animal sciences from the University of São Paulo State (UNESP) in Brazil. During his career, he has acquired experience in health and nutrition of monogastrics, especially dogs, cats and aquatic organisms, and has made both technical and scientific presentations in Brazil and abroad. Roberti has served in his current role since 2013, with his work focusing on functional products produced by the company, particularly immunomodulators and prebiotics.

Protease beyond providing amino acids
Rider Perez - Regional Technical Manager – Enzymes DSM

Protein digestion in non-ruminant livestock is not optimal with various external and animal related factors that allow protein to escape digestion. The consequences are costly and can be detrimental to animals and the environment. With the advent of proteases, this novel biotechnology can add value to assist livestock to improve protein and amino acid digestibility.  But there is more. The application of this novel enzyme in practical diets shows that many nutritional benefits can be obtained that are link to gut health and care for the environment. This seminar will briefly revise how protein escape digestion and its consequences. Data on how to improve this disparity and the link to improve other parameters like energy utilisation, parasites reduction and a better gut health will be given.  The results is to provide a more economical diets that improve animal health and nutrition and reduces reactive negative compounds to the environment.
