Changing the agricultural landscape through virtual reality

by Frank Byers, MBA | PMP, President/CEO AgriSphere, USA

AgriSphere, LLC, industry leader in management software, training systems, and compliance programmes, recently released its new agVR virtual reality (VR) training application.  agVR uses the latest mobile virtual reality technology to create interactive environments in a portable and cost-effective package.  The app can be operated from smartphones and low-cost virtual reality headsets, such as units from Lenovo and Google.

agVR comes standard with a typical grain elevator environment that places users in a familiar agricultural facility. The virtual facility includes a scale house with truck scale, motor control centre with controls, tool crib, bucket elevator leg with head service platform and ladder, and grain bins among other agricultural equipment or elements.
 

AgriSphere can also custom design and build virtual reality environments for customers enabling employees to perform VR tasks within the very facility in which they work.

The app is designed to provide employees with a training experience that traditional classroom training cannot provide while eliminating the hazards and logistical challenges of certain on-the-job training methods.

Employees can move through the VR environment to perform maintenance tasks, perform lock-out/tag-out procedures and other safety activities, and complete programmatic documentation (forms, permits, etc.) without stepping foot into the facility.

This helps employees identify and understand procedural requirements and process steps, as well as critical safety hazards they may encounter while working. This type of hazard-free exposure is especially important for new employees who may not have experience or familiarity with agricultural facilities or their associated hazards.

Employee performance can be evaluated on critical tasks and activities by using tests, quizzes, and actionable choices that can be incorporated into each training module or script. This enables active coaching by instructors overseeing the training activities.  This level of engagement between new employees and instructors/experienced employee can be difficult to achieve in real operating spaces and work areas of a facility.

In the basic implementation, participants follow visual cues scattered throughout the environment. Moving from one point to another within the application is accomplished by visually staring at each checkpoint until they are transported to that location.  This type of navigation is particularly efficient and allows participants to transition through the course.  Certain VR headset systems include a controller (or two).  Incorporating controller use allows personnel to interact with the VR environment directly, such as opening a door, lifting a panel, or using a hand-tool.

Dairy cows: It´s all about protein, isn’t it?

by Thierry Aubert, and Elisabeth Rohrer, Delacon, Austria

Ruminants such as dairy cows accomplish true wonders, as they can transform inedible, low‐quality protein in roughage and concentrates into the high‐quality protein found in milk and meat. But which role does nitrogen (N) play here and, in fact, how does urea get into milk? And how do natural, plant-based feed additives make a substantial contribution in this context?
 

Like proteins, the rumen ecosystem is very complex in its structure and function. Proteins are made up of 50 amino acids and more, delivering the material for the building and renewal of cells and tissues. This function cannot be performed by any other food. Cows require specific amounts of amino acids to maintain the body, including muscles and bones, the unfolding of a calf, and the milk production. There are two main sources that contribute to the amino acid pool available at the ruminants’ duodenum:

First, the microbial protein, synthesised in the rumen by microbes and with 50-75 percent representing the most important amount of cows’ total protein supply. With the energy supply through carbohydrates, the microbes build up their own precious body protein out of nitrogen and amino acids, before they are being washed down to the cow’s duodenum where they are digested.

Though the microbial protein production is only ensured by simultaneous availability of ammonia, produced by hydrolysis of degradable protein (or N) sources and carbon skeletons from fermentable carbohydrates.

In case of energy deficiency and protein surplus, the microbes use protein for energy production, resulting in a waste of N. A waste that will be excreted in the cow´s urine and that will be reflected in higher levels of urea nitrogen in blood and milk as well.

Second, the undegradable protein (UDP), the part of feed protein that withstands the processes in the rumen, hence being available for the cow directly at the small intestine.

Regarding the UDP, it is important to make sure that the amino acid balancing of the raw materials of the ration is adjusted to the cows’ requirement.  Though high yielding cows require more UDP to meet the cows needs of protein, it is always the microbial protein that remains the most important protein source.

New GFLI entity to make environmental data on feed ingredients publicly available

Recognising that animal feed is a critical component in measuring the total environmental footprint of animal nutrition products, an international consortium came together in 2016 to establish a 'global gold standard' for calculating the life-cycle analysis (LCA) of feed ingredients.

Now, the founding partners of the Global Feed LCA Institute (GFLI) are establishing a legal non-profit institute, under the same name, to expand its work and make the data more widely available to stakeholders throughout the global food value chain.
 
An international consortium of feed industry partners came together Sept. 19 to establish the Global Feed LCA Institute, which will provide greater access to environmental data on feed ingredients so stakeholders can improve their accuracy for reporting the environmental impacts of sustainable animal protein production.

'Having access to reliable and scientific environmental data on feed ingredients is important for companies, academia and others working on sustainable animal protein production for not only improving the accuracy of their environmental reporting, but also for benchmarking and setting future sustainability goals,' the founding GFLI partners said.

The institute's mission will be to make publicly available an expanded regional and sectorial animal nutrition LCA database, consolidating the existing LCA datasets GFLI developed for the European Union, United States and Canada.

March 20th: World Flour Day



Mühlenchemie are very happy to announce that they have been able to officially create 'World Flour Day'- a day of special recognition every year for flour. The event will take place every year on March 20th.

Products made from flour are daily sustenance for billions of people. In every part of the world, flour is made into delicious foods like bread, rolls, biscuits, cakes and pasta. It is one of the most important staple foods of humankind, and we all take it for granted.
Flour deserves all of our thanks. So there should be one day of the year when from New York to Sydney, from Buenos Aires to Mexico City, from Lisbon to Moscow, we honour flour, along with the farmers and millers, shippers and truckers, processors and bakers.
March 20th was the chosen day to celebrate flour as it is a special day for harvests. It's in the middle of the solstice, which varies between March 19 and 21. In the northern hemisphere spring starts after March 20, and with it the planting season. In the southern hemisphere autumn starts, and with it the harvest season.
So for farmers around the world, the days around March 20 are a special time, one of hope and gratitude.

Find out more on Mühlenchemie's World Flour Day website.

New and emerging mycotoxins analysed by Alltech 37+® Laboratory

New and emerging mycotoxins can now be analysed by the Alltech 37+® Laboratory. In total, five new mycotoxins have been added to the testing panel, bringing the total number of detectable mycotoxins to 54. These new additions further increase the understanding of mycotoxin occurrence and the potential risk to animal performance.

Emerging mycotoxins refers to mycotoxins that are neither routinely analysed nor legislatively regulated. However, research has shown more evidence of their increasing incidence and potential toxicity to animals. The emerging mycotoxins analysed by Alltech 37+ include beauvericin; moniliformin; enniatins A, A1, B and B1; phomopsin A and alternariol. Fusaric acid also features in this emerging mycotoxin category.

'The Alltech 37+ mycotoxin analysis test is the cornerstone of the Alltech Mycotoxin Management program,' explained Nick Adams, global director, Mycotoxin Management, Alltech. 'We now test for 54 mycotoxins. With this new analytical capability, Alltech is better equipped to understand how contaminated feedstuffs might impact animal performance and health.'

Due to their toxic properties, mycotoxins are a concern for livestock producers, as they can impact feed quality as well as animal health and performance. A world leader in mycotoxin management, Alltech's 37+ test results provide a realistic picture of mycotoxin contamination in feed ingredients or total mixed rations, speeding up the process of diagnosis, and suggest effective remediation and help move toward an effective mycotoxin control plan.

'Since adding these mycotoxins to our analytical capabilities, we have already seen a high frequency of samples with these contaminants,' explained Dr Patrick Ward, Ireland Analytical Services Laboratory manager, Alltech. 'As we test more samples and accumulate more data, we will strengthen our understanding of these mycotoxins.'

Between Alltech's 37+ mycotoxin analytical services laboratories in Lexington, Kentucky, and Dunboyne, Ireland, they have run over 30,000 samples, each searching for up to 54 mycotoxins in animal feed.

The feedase effect improves the efficiency of poultry production

by Marcio Ceccantini, Scientific and Technical Manager for Feed Digestibility Category, Adisseo; Sofia Zenagui, Marketing Manager for Feed Digestibility Category, Adisseo

The economic value of improving efficiency in poultry production is great. Bird performance can be optimised by improving feed digestibility using enzymes. However, simultaneous use of different types of enzymes has been a challenge, mainly due to the lack of technical data on the optimal way to combine them, resulting in large variation of recommendations on enzyme combinations.


A global enzyme solution enables significant reduction in dietary nutrient levels and increasing nutrient retention. Trials have shown this improves poultry performance and can significantly help to reduce feed costs.
 


The indigestible fraction

Diets fed to broilers and other livestock contain a considerable indigestible fraction. In fact, 20-to-25 percent of the organic matter is unavailable for absorption in broilers. Because of this, over the last three decades several enzymes have been developed to improve feed digestibility. The use of phytases and carbohydrases, has increased raw material options, allowed nutritionists to take advantage of local raw materials and helped to reduce feed costs.

Whilst the modes of action and substrates of phytases and carbohydrases are different, their effects on diet digestibility and performance are complimentary. The nutrient-capturing mechanisms of non-starch polysaccharides and phytate are not the same. Therefore, if both types can be degraded, nutrient release will be higher.

The ability of efficient multi-enzyme solutions to improve global feed digestibility is known as the feedase effect. By reducing the indigestible fraction of feed, as well as the effect of anti-nutritional factors, more nutrients are released.

Using phytase plus carbohydrases
Phytase addition, by reducing phytate in the diet, improves the availability of amino acids and minerals (mainly P & Ca). It also reduces the cost of mineral addition, decreasing associated pollution from organic manure and leaving more space for vegetable raw materials.

By increasing the standard inclusion level of phytase, phytate and its breakdown products are quickly and further degraded. Anti-nutritional effects are increasingly reduced, and performance further improved.

By breaking down plant cell walls, carbohydrases liberate more nutrient at the same time. Carbohydrases help to reduce digestive problems associated with feeding wheat and barley diets, by reducing viscosity of the digesta. In addition, the certain polysaccharides, presents in most common feed ingredients, the result of carbohydrases breaking down fibre in the feed, have a prebiotic effect that benefits the microflora.

These classes of enzyme have distinct but complimentary effects – one type, whatever the dose, cannot substitute the efficiency of a combination. Both kinds of enzyme degrade indigestible fractions within diet – in so doing they increase energy availability and nutrient value of the feed.

In order to take full advantage of this, the enzymes need enough ‘room’ in the diet. To maximise the economic benefits, specifications should be reduced in terms of metabolisable energy (ME), digestible amino acids (dAA), available phosphorus (avP), calcium (Ca) and sodium (Na).

Fortification of industrially-milled cereal grains

by Milan Shah, Henry Simon Milling

As supplier of cereal-based foods products, flour millers have a responsibility to help feeding the world in healthy and enriched ways. In addition, they can have a role in prevention of chronic diseases such as iron deficiency anemia and birth deficits.


Despite this, according to the Food Fortification Initiative currently globally only 82 countries have legislation to mandate fortification of at least one industrially milled cereal grain, while there are about 195 countries in the world today. In addition, eight countries fortify more than half of their industrially milled wheat flour through voluntary efforts and these countries include Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Gambia, Lesotho, Namibia, Çatar, Swaziland, and the United Arab Emirates.
 


Most of these countries mandate fortification of wheat and maize flour with iron and folic acid. Very recently, The National Fortification Alliance of Pakistan (NFA) is partnering with the United Nations World Food Program (WFP) and the government of Australia to launch a pilot project to fight malnutrition by fortifying wheat flour in Islamabad and Rawalpindi.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, CDC; Iron deficiency anemia is the most widespread nutritional deficiency in the world and has important consequences for child development and enormous economic costs.

Likewise, according to WHO, CDC and the International Clearing House for Birth Defects Surveillance and Research (ICBDSR), neural tube defects are among the most common structural congenital anomalies worldwide, with an estimated 300,000 cases-per-year.

Obviously, the best way of preventing micronutrient malnutrition is to ensure consumption of a balanced diet that is adequate in every nutrient. Unfortunately, this is far from being achievable everywhere since it requires universal access to adequate food and appropriate dietary habits.

From this standpoint, food fortification has the dual advantage of being able to deliver nutrients to large segments of the population without requiring radical changes in food consumption patterns.
