Treatinganimals so that they don’t suffer is something we all consider desirable, notonly from a ‘humanistic’ point of view, but also from a productivity concern.But, going further than this for marketing purposes is becoming a trend. Or, isit rather a fad?
Algae,or seaweed, are drawing a lot of attention from the scientific and commercialcommunity as a possible future feed ingredient. The concept is promising, butthere is still considerable effort required until algae become a feedcommodity.
With animal feed costs continuing to climb, everyone is looking for corners to cut and manufacturing is not immune to this exercise! Pelleting certainly costs more than proving the feed in its natural meal form.
