Cuba boosts animal feed production

Havana, Sep 28 ( Prensa Latina) Cuba boosts animal feed production with the introduction of technological improvements in the manufacture of torula yeast, the use of biotechnological processes and other measures, a specialized source told Prensa Latina today.

The use of upper techniques in the production of torula yeast – a nutrient with over 40 percent protein – allows for greater production efficiency and lower costs, Caridad Suarez reiterated, head of the Animal Biotechnology Group of ICIDCA’s Bioengineering Directorate.

The use of the produced cachaça in the sugar mills is also diversified, based on local conditions and in favor of animal feed and fertilization, the expert from the Cuban Institute of Sugarcane Derivatives Research (ICIDCA) pointed out in a conversation with Prensa Latina.

We seek to obtain new products with the application of biotechnological processes, the specialist added.

In that sense, she mentioned the design and implementation of a system to obtain dry feed based on sugar agroindustry by-products.

Suarez also noted the training of human resources and the consolidation of an extension service linked to animal feed.

All those actions are part of a macro-project being carried out with the participation of ICIDCA and other institutions and organizations related to research and production of animal feed in the country.

The goal of that program is to study the industrialization at small, medium and large scale of all possible substrates and the development of formulations for poultry, fish and rabbits by means of the breakthrough of productive poles, she highlighted.

Suarez stressed the importance of the macroproject for the increase of animal production, the substitution of imports and the country’s food sovereignty.
