Crude fibres have a positive impact on the animal welfare of breeding sows. The solubility and fermentability of the fibres are essential for this effect to take place. Insoluble and non-fermentable crude fibres such as our JELUVET® lignocellulose improve the sow’s well-being. But that’s not all! A field trial conducted in Brazil shows that our JELUVET® lignocellulose also has a positive influence on piglet breeding.
Lignocellulose and cellulose are used in pet food as dietary fibre - also referred to as crude fibre in animal feed. Both feed materials are neutral in taste. According to studies, the added dietary fibre in the food stimulates peristalsis, shortening the time it takes for the food to pass through the large intestine. Food rich in dietary fibre, therefore, prevents sluggish bowel movements and constipation. Both lignocellulose and cellulose bind water and give structure to the faeces, improving its consistency. Even animals with a tendency to soft, improperly formed stools can benefit from these dietary fibres. Do lignocellulose and cellulose, however, really have the same effects?
The substance flow balance of the new German Fertiliser Application Ordinance forces agricultural enterprises to set the phosphorus content of the feed accurately. Consequently, there is little room for variation in the phosphorus content. Different crude fibre sources can add different amounts of additional phosphorus to the ration. Lignocellulose, which is low in phosphorus, is especially suitable for use as a crude fibre component for a phosphorus-reduced feeding strategy.
