Ms Frédérick Bussy, Olmix Group’s For Vet Specialist, describes how specific biological algae extracts can play a vital role when it comes to chick management in the farm.
On February 25, 2020, Philippe Mauguin, President and CEO of INRAE (National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment) and Hervé Balusson, CEO of Olmix Group, signed a first framework agreement which aims at strengthening their collaboration in the fields of both environment and animal nutrition and health with the shared objective of developing sustainable and economically viable agricultural food systems.
As part of the GENIALG project, Olmix Group has been involved in a recent scientific study that sheds light on successful natural processes to extract chlorophylls from Ulva spp. from 2 different European biomasses. The research was developed in collaboration between Olmix, ALGAplus and University of Aveiro and has been published in Separation and Purification Technology Journal.
Improving feed efficiency is one of the aspects of precision feeding, for which the use of in-feed solutions has proven its interest.
Seaweed contains ‘sulphated polysaccharides’ – components that are not found in plants, yeast or microalgae. Yet animals do react well to them. Combining sulphated polysaccharides from green and red algae, a new strategy has seen the light that can help weaner pigs in programmes without antibiotics.
