Title: Animal feeds from waste materials

Abstract

As any dirt farmer knows, cattle and poultry manure, sewage, and other animal waste products can be utilized directly in the producion of certain animal feeds (e.g. for piglets and chicks) without going through the agricultural cycle. In addition there are proven nutritional values in by-products from sugar factories, breweries, the dairy industry, and from the processing of wood, to which now can be added the utilization of municipal and certain industrial wastes. With these goals in mind the book attacks the twin problems of inadequate food supplies and waste disposal simultaneously. Of prime interest is the production of feedstuffs for ruminants. Highly nutritional additives, for instance, can be made from molasses, urea, and starch, and mixed with traditional fodder. Ruminants, such as cattle and sheep, utilize only about 35% of the food values of what they eat, and the grain which they consume normally, can feed many more people than does their meat. Many schemes for the utilization of solid wastes have been proposed. This book discusses one of the most potentially valuable, the use of wastes to provide food for animals, thus saving an impressive percentage of the millions of tons of grain which are now used formore » animal feed, and freeing acres of grazing land for other uses. Recent US patents and government-sponsored studies were the basis for this review.« less
