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.
Lignocellulose is a natural feed supplement which increases the crude fibre content of animal food. The crude fibre content of food is an important factor in pet health. Although the food formulation specifies how high the optimal content should be, studies show repeatedly that the crude fibre ration of animals is insufficient. Lignocellulose has a constant high crude fibre content. Therefore, our JELUVET® lignocellulose makes it possible to feed an optimal, standardised crude fibre portion.
On 28 February 2014, JELU-WERK was represented at the Pig Symposium in Poland – the annual information event of the feed supplier Cargill. About 250 of the largest Polish pig breeders accepted the company's invitation.
