In Russia, they suggested applying gas to animal feed 11:14

Scientists from the Siberian Federal Center for Agricultural Biotechnologies (SFSC RAS) of the Russian Academy of Sciences have developed a new technology for sterilizing animal feed using a gas unit. was told about this issue at the SFSC RAS.

During long-term storage of feed, there is a high probability of the emergence of bacteria and mold fungi that will produce toxins. These harmful substances threaten the health of animals and birds. As a result, the feed spoils and loses its nutritional value. In addition, when infected with microscopic pathogenic organisms, animals and birds develop digestive disorders, metabolism is inhibited and the body’s resistance decreases.

Therefore, it is important to process animal food before eating it. One of the important conditions for increasing the efficiency of animal feed is its sterilization. In Russia, this is done by heating the feed at 70°C for half an hour. But its disadvantage is the high cost of the process, reduced activity of vitamins and natural enzymes. To save money, some farms choose to skip this process altogether.

Scientists have developed an alternative sterilization technology by treating feed with a gas composition. The pilot plant is currently being tested on one of the farms in the Tomsk region. An experimental workshop was created, where engineers converted facilities already used in other industries to suit the needs of agricultural enterprises.

“The cost of such a kit will be approximately 200 to 400 thousand rubles, depending on the volume and tasks. The experimental facility will need to operate throughout the winter and spring. If everything goes well, we will start production. The new technology is absolutely safe for consumers, and its use will allow farms to save money and use it for further development, “Sergei Leonov, senior researcher at the SFSC RAS, told

Previous scientists to create A way to treat chronic wounds without using antibiotics.
