Patent number: 8815315
Abstract: Disclosed is a method for improving the digestibility and amino acid profile of proteinaceous animal feed products by the use of a combination of acidic, alkaline and/or neutral proteases. The selection and amounts of the proteases is based on the particular animal feed product and on the conditions of the gastrointestinal tract of the animal to be fed the treated animal feed. Use of the treated animal feed will reduce the amount of amino acid supplementation required, reduce the amount of nitrogen in animal feces, and improve the economical performance of the animal.

Abstract: A method of making a gel-type livestock feed includes initially forming a feed mixture by mixing feed nutrient components, water, alginate, and a calcium component insoluble in water or a sequestrate to inhibit the calcium component from reacting with the alginate. Once the feed mixture is formed, the calcium component is solubilized or the sequestrates affecting the reactivity between the alginate and the calcium component is removed such that a gel feed is formed that includes a gel matrix containing the feed nutrient components. The gel feed may then be fed to the livestock. In another aspect of the present invention, piglets are weaned by feeding the gel feed for at least seven days directly after weaning. The gel feed may also include protein derived from blood with or without egg protein.

Abstract: Milk replacers include a fat component in which least about 10 percent of the total fat content is formed of medium chain triglycerides. Young animals consuming the milk replacer ingest the medium chain triglycerides at a rate of at least about 13.5 grams per head per day and exhibit improved animal performance. The milk replacers with the modified fatty acid profiles may include a reduced level of fat and protein compared to traditional milk replacers without negatively affecting performance of young animals, and may even enhance performance of the young animals. These milk replacers may be produced by adding the medium chain triglycerides during milk replacer formulation, and at least about 9 grams of medium chain triglycerides are provided per pound of milk replacer.

Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention relate to the use of tannin-containing wood products in animal feed to improve production efficiency and health of ruminants (e.g., sheep, goats, and cattle) by reducing internal parasite load, reducing methane and ammonia production in the rumen, and decreasing phosphor emissions from fecal waste. Embodiments include a domesticated ruminant feed comprising a condensed tannin. Certain embodiments relate to methods comprising administering condensed tannins to ruminant animals by incorporating pine bark or other suitable condensed tannin-containing wood products into regular animal feed.
