Making optimum use of side streams

Making optimum use of side streams

Side streams from the food industry can often be fed straight to livestock. Particularly pig farmers are able to benefit from these. Especially where high-energy foods are concerned. These include potato peals from chip production or wheat starch resulting from the production of soft drinks. Other sources include protein-rich yeast from the beer industry and the whey that is drained off after cheese production. These represent excellent feed ingredients with high-quality nutrients. Our pig farming department in the Netherlands is manned by a team of specialists who are happy to support pig farmers regarding the optimum utilisation of side streams.
