Feed and Ingredient Quality (Quantitative)

Chemical Analysis

Moisture, Crude Protein, Non Protein Nitrogen, Crude fibre, Ether Extract (Crude Fat/Oil), Total Ash, Acid In Soluble Ash (Sand Silica), Calcium, Total Phosphorus, Salt (As NaCI), Metabolizable Energy, Free Fatty Acid Assay, Iodine Value, Peroxide Value - all these are reliably analyzed in our well equiped R&D laboratory.

Anti-Nutritional factors i.e.

  • Extrinsic Toxins - Aflatoxin Bl. Aflatoxin B2. Ochratoxin A.
  • Intrinsic Toxins - Urease Activity in Soyabean
  • Pesticide Residues - Thiram in Maize grains.

are identified and isolated so as to maximize nutirition in the birds.

Water Test

A water test is regularly conducted to eliminate Total Dissolved Solids (IDS), pH, Electrical Conductivity (EC), Residual Chlorine, Choride, Sulphate, Nitrate, Nitrite, Iron, Zinc, Copper.

Microbiological Examination

Microbiological examination is conducted and bacterial isolation from birds that are dead and alive, together with hatchery and shed monitoring is also undertaken.

Collection of Feed ingredients, feed samples & its dispatch.

Collection of feed samples from at least 8-10 bags. Pour them on clean ground surface, mix it well. Make four parts of this mixture. Mix parts diagonally opposite each other. Repeat the process once again. Collect 250 gms of sample in sterile polythene bag. Seal & label the bag properly.

Collection of Water & Its Dispatch

Collect 500 ml water in a clean & clear sterilized bottle. The sample should reach our laboratory within 24 hrs.
