In terms of productivity and meat quality, in recent years science has focused on trying to make food increasingly nutritious and healthy.
As a functional food, i.e. capable of positively influencing the physiological functions of the body and helping to reduce the potential onset of diet-related diseases, meat is the subject of animal nutrition plans, aimed at reducing the content of saturated fats and cholesterol, increasing those of long-chain omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids PUFA, with proven health benefits.
For the purposes of nutritional efficiency and production optimization, knowing the precise nutritional quality and chemical composition of the raw materials used in rationing, therefore, has a strategic value for breeders and nutritionists.
Knowing exactly how much feed we are giving our horse is also fundamental if we want to introduce something new into the diet. Therefore, you should get used to reasoning in terms of weight not volume, by simply weighing the measure you use (the ladle) for each foodstuff and always referring to the weight in terms of kilos or grams.
A horse’s daily diet should include around 40 different nutrients: the right amount of energy and proteins, 15 different minerals, 14 vitamins, fats, water and at least 4 essential amino acids (lysine, methionine, tryptophan and threonine).
Thanks to the know-how acquired during the decades, the technology employed in the production process and the product tracing and analytic system, Gruppo Carli is able to offer breeders a range of healthy, sustainable and constant quality fodder, perfectly applicable to dynamic rationing systems.
Gruppo Carli presents its new product catalogue, an expression of its know-how accumulated over 60 years of business in the cultivation and processing of forages and cereals.
In human nutrition, milk is an important source of bioavailable calcium, branched chain amino acids, conjugated linoleic acid and proteins. In addition to calcium, several minerals are present in milk such as phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, zinc and selenium. Milk also provides water-soluble B vitamin (riboflavin and B12) and fat-soluble vitamin, in proportional concentration to the content of fat.
In 1960, brothers Andrea, Ernesto and Alfredo brought a small mill to life in Torello di San Leo, Italy.
Values such as dedication to work, sensitivity to nature and respect for the environment, as part of Carli’s DNA, have been handed down to the third generation of the family, now active across all company departments.
This article marks the beginning of a Carli Group initiative to disseminate know-how on correct nutrition for horses (and donkeys) that, on a monthly basis, aims to offer its clients information on a vast range of topics. No complicated calculations or difficult words, but pure applied scientific divulgation that can be understood by everyone.
The aim of haymaking is to retain and preserve all the nutritional elements present in the grass for as long as possible and guarantee healthy forage for animals.
When a plant is cut, it dies and the vital flow from the roots is interrupted; the plant cells then trigger enzymatic and metabolic processes that use up any available reserves.
On May 7th and 8th at the Alte Kongresshalle in Munich will take place the first edition on Munich Organic, the International Trade Fair for Grain and Raw Materials in the Organic Sector.
From the 1st to 3rd of February, 2019 the Garda Exhibition Centre in Montichiari (BS) will host the 91sth edition of the Agricultural Farming Exhibition.
Gruppo Carli will exhibit at the EuroTier 2018 in Hanover, Germany, and will be happy to welcome guests in the booth location n. A37 Hall 20 to illustrate its range of forage and bedding.
Gruppo Carli will attend the second edition of Agro Oman, happy to present its natural forage and bedding, entirely produced in Italy.
You are welcome at the booth n. 5 at HALL 5, in the Italian Area.
To obtain an appropriate diet for dairy cattle it is necessary to individuate the real nutritional value of the feed employed in the farm.
Knowing this allows to use the most suitable forage for lactating bovines, dry cows and animals in growing phase.
On March 18 and 19, GRUPPO CARLI will exhibit for the first time at KIAFE Kuwait, happy to welcome visitors at their booth at HALL 4! Welcome to our booth to learn more about Italian alfalfa and forage!
Organized under the patronage of the Ministry of Agriculture & Fisheries Wealth, Agro Oman and Fisheries Expo will be held at the Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre in Muscat, from 15th to 17th of May
About 49 million laying hens, 40 million turkeys and broilers and about 8 million rabbits, 13 billion eggs and 1.7 million tons of poultry meat - this is the summary, in figures, of the Italian poultry industry.
The positive trend towards organic farming started in the last decade and it is now growing globally: the demand for organic products is steadily increasing, more and more farmers grow organic and more and more land is converted to organic farming. Result: 179 countries recorded production from organic farming in 2016!
With nearly 2,400 exhibitors spread over 240,000 m2 of exhibition space, EuroTier offers a comprehensive overview and global level on the technical innovations and genetics, and services available for animal husbandry, especially as regards the rearing of cattle.
The fiber digestibility of Italian ryegrass is high enough to replace a third of the alfalfa and corn silage in dairy diets, says Dave Combs, a University of Wisconsin dairy scientist.
“We’ve known for a long time that ryegrasses in general are very different from most other grasses,” Combs says...
