The findings of the study project were based on information obtained from visiting a number of progressive global dairy farming operations in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Ireland and through research provided by agricultural specialists in this area... If and when there is a necessity to supplement the feed ration with higher levels of starch and/or forages, the alternative aforementioned processes could also be undertaken... The report provides nutritional options to improve our current pasture based systems...

Dough improvers are also used in proficiency testing of flours when varieties of wheat are evaluated for bread making functionalities... The study was conducted to determine the effects of improvers on a range of flours... Results showed that baking qualities of flours were functions of the improver plus the qualities of the dough liquor...

" Print the page Marketing and use of mould-affected grain often presents a dilemma for growers and livestock producers, and usually comes down to how much the grain should be discounted... The first group is ergot alkaloids, produced by sorghum ergot growing prior to harvest, and the second is aflatoxins, which are mainly produced if sorghum is stored with high moisture content... The results in: shrunken and pinched grain, following drought or from soil fertility constraints discoloured grain, often covered with black, gray, pink or orange fungal growth (mould), after extensive warm, humid periods during grain maturation premature germination of the grain caused by wet or humid weather conditions at harvest, resulting in sprung, shot or sprouted grain...

The aim of the study was to determine whether the introduction of starch into the diet of lambs as an integral part of the weaning process would provide benefits to the rumen function of the lamb in order to improve feed conversion efficiency... Phone: Fax: Email: Objectives +61 8 85958048 N/A james@chowilla.com.au The focus of this report is to identify opportunities to introduce starch into the diet of lambs at weaning to improve the feed conversion efficiency and improve the lifetime production of the subject animals... The study showed that starch can improve the rumen function of lambs allowing for better feed conversion efficiency and resulting in better performance of the lambs...

GrainGrowers says exports of these grains to China are growing on the back of an expanding Chinese alcoholic-beverage sector... The value of tariff removal represents about $12 million a year in 2013 trade terms, with the benefit being shared between Chinese consumers and the Australian grains industry... Australian wheat exports to China will remain subject to an out-of-quota tariff of 65 per cent, and within-quota tariff of one per cent...

The importance of pulses (legumes) in gut function and bowel health is largely misunderstood in Australia, where the rate of colorectal cancer is the second highest in the world.. Dr David Topping, chief research scientist at CSIRO's Food and Nutrition Flagship in Adelaide, says that in Australia most of the fibre is consumed as (insoluble) cereal fibre, with the increasing disease rate due to a deficiency of fermentable fibres such as resistant starch - a component of pulses... "If we don't eat enough resistant starch, the good bacteria in our large bowel get hungry and feed on other things including protein, releasing potentially damaging products such as phenols [digestion products of aromatic amino acids] instead of beneficial short-chain fatty acids," Dr Topping says...

Fibre development sets up new market potential.. Researchers working in the GRDC-backed venture have made it possible for wheat products to provide sufficient quantities of 'resistant starch'... Dr Elisabeth Chanliaud, R&D director at Limagrain C r ales Ingr dients, says the research breakthrough makes it possible to start developing cereal products that make sufficient quantities of resistant starch available without changing the type and quantity of consumed foods, particularly in terms of bread, cereal and pasta...
