GMP+ No-Antibiotic Feed Standard & Closing

About the program:

Antibiotics were part of our feed production a long time ago to prevent treat and control bacterial infections in livestock animals and even to increase animal performance.  Through the years, this practice is agreed to eliminate to reduce the likelihood that resistant bacteria develop and threaten human health. But how's Asia's feed industry doing in cutting back on meds and antibiotics in the production of animal feed? 
Our goal is simple: raise awareness. We'll help clarify the existing rules, so everyone knows what's expected and how to meet industry standards. And we hopefully offer tips for better feed production.

Takeaways:

  • Creating Awareness: Participants will leave with information to ensure producing safer animal feed for livestock.
  • Joint responsibility: Empower participants to share awareness of the impact of antibiotics and medicines in feed production and guided by rules set by the authority and private organisations.
  • Networking: Encourage a sense of community and collaboration among participants, and knowledge exchange in the industry.

Antimicrobial Resistance: How It Shapes and Drives Regulatory Changes

The audience will receive comprehensive information on how developments in antimicrobial resistance have influenced the regulatory frameworks of diverse Asian countries.

Safeguarding Feed Production: Strategies to Prevent Cross Contamination and Unintended Use of substance

The presentation will focus on the following 3 key points:

  • Risk and cross-contamination in the feed mill – The audience will clearly understand these critical concepts and how important they are.
  • Common sources of cross-contamination – An overview of the most common sources of cross-contamination in the feed mill will be discussed.
  • Quality control in the feed mill – The audience will get a general view of how a quality control program should look like.

GMP+ No-Antibiotic Feed Standard

The presentation will focus on the new standard of GMP+ International about the No-Antibiotic use in animal feed production. Bram will highlight the importance of having certification as a strong proof of complying and supporting the ambition of the industry to eliminate the antibiotic in animal feed production.

Feed technology under industrial research conditions in Asia

Pairat Srichana, Ph.D., Charoen Pokphand Group Co., Ltd.

Abstract

Feed technology involves the processing of ingredients and the manufacture of animal feeds and is integral part of animal production systems to provide high quality and nutritious food. Livestock industry has been developed rapidly in Asian countries for the past few years due to several factors. Genetic of animal is the main factor, since modern genetics such as hyper-prolific sows, fast growth, and high lean meat of genetic lines of pig have been imported. As well as, for broiler industry, high meat yield, rapid growth with excellent feed efficiency are selected. Therefore, animal feed, feeding program, and farm management have to be changed to fit the genetic potential of animals. There are an argument whether or not industrial research should be invested as long as there are so many publications from university research. Based on feed technology perspectives, industrial research is really importance, especially in Asia not only because genetic of animal has been changed but also several alternative raw materials in Asia have been used. Raw materials such as corn, wheat, soy bean meal, and DDGS are commonly used in several countries in America and Europe with full of nutritional information of those raw materials. However, accurate information of local raw materials are really required in different Asian countries. For example, cassava and cassava by products, feed rice and rice by products, and palm kernel meal which there are huge variation of these raw materials caused by its origins and production processes. Moreover, price of imported major raw materials in Asia are fluctuated which consequently affects feed price and production cost of domestic animals. These problems can be alleviated by commercial research as precision nutrition is being focused. Appropriate protein diets with synthetic amino acid supplementation is not a new concept. However, application of this concept can be achieved by theoretical understandings of the concept and proper animal science research techniques to find the optimal requirement of animals. Precision nutrition is not only gain benefits to animals and producers but also provide benefit to the environment since Charoen Pokphand Food has focused on One Health Concept.

A Guideline of shrimp production cost management

About the program:

When the shrimp industry are in a crisis period due to falling of farm gate prices. The way to survive that the farmer can be done by yourself is to manage to reduce production costs. Key idea is to increasing production efficiency not to cut off the expense. The method that should be chosen is to accept the LEAN concept to manage all 6 production costs.

By breaking down the cost of shrimp production into 6 items, then figure out with the most efficient method of management. This can help reduce costs by up to 30%, which will definitely increase the opportunity for profit and survival for operators during this crisis.

About the program:

CRONOS roll, the one and only indefinite chilled roll
Cronos roll is the latest inovation launched by Balaguer rolls Group in the field of fliur milling compresion rolls, this unique roll is casted by single poured material being the one and only indefinite chilled cast iron rolls ever made. The special properties of this new casting grade allows the roll to run at lower temperature than standar smooth sandblasted rolls normally  seen at milling sections, lower roll temperature helps to get a cooler flour which is one of the desires of every miller. Cronos material itself help the rolls to mantain its matt finished during operation what makes no needed to be re-sanblasted unless a preassure excess is aplyied to the rolls.
Hardness of these rolls is lower thah any other smooth roll ever seen before however it has the ideal hardness which guarantees the ideal wear resistance.
Cronos material can be supplyied for any brand or model of smooth sand blasted rolls.
The new features of this revolutiaonary roll means a new era on compresion rolls technology for flour milling industry.

Novel method of rice flour production for environmental friendliness
The traditional rice flour production uses wet milling method which consumes a lot of water and generates a lot of waste-water which needs waste water treatment. Green house gas emission is a lot which is not environmental friendliness. The energy consumption is high. Therefore, freeze grinding method is developed to replace the wet grinding. This method doesn’t use water, therefore, no waste-water, no green-house gas emissions, less energy consumption, more sustainability and more environmental friendliness. The freeze grinding process involved soaking the rice samples in liquid nitrogen before grinding in a dry grinding machine. Freeze grinding using the hammer mill significantly reduced both the average particle size and lower percentage of damaged starch content, higher yield and much less energy consumption. The freeze grinding process was a viable alternative to the traditional wet grinding process.

How to recondition rolls to improve mill performance 
Many flour mills face inefficient mill performances, experiencing elevated energy costs, higher ash content, lower flour extraction rates, and compromised flour quality. One contributing factor to these problems is the difficulty of reconditioning roller mill rolls correctly. The extensive effort, time, and cost required for this process often lead mills to not recondition the rolls as often as they should. When mills do execute roll reconditioning, many times it is not done accurately. This means the mills are operating with semi-worn-off rolls or with inaccurate flute profiles and roll tapers, resulting in detrimental effects on the mill. Our session aims to address these challenges by sharing effective techniques for reconditioning rolls, ensuring precise flute profiles on break rolls, and accurate taper on reduction rolls to enhance overall mill operations. Additionally, we will explore the relationship between inaccurate or worn-off rolls and their adverse effects on mill performance.
