Read AFMA Matrix in July

The year 2022 seems to have brought a harsh winter to South Africans in more than one respect – from early cold spells to the knock-on effects of the Russia-Ukraine conflict and the aftermath of Covid-19 regulations. Among others, global fertiliser and oil prices have been directly impacted following the imposition of international sanctions against Russia. The long-term impact on South African feed manufacturers and processors is yet to be seen. The July issue of AFMA Matrix offers readers a look into relevant feed aspects such as protein feedstuffs, salmonella detection, monogastric animals, and an all-important e-learning programme for feed mill operators.

Also look forward to the following articles:

  • Particle size and in vitro digestibility of maize and soya.
  • Animal nutrition market report: Growth from 2022 to 2026.
  • Transforming how we think about fibre.
  • Protease, phytase and zylanase supplementation in broilers.
  • Relocating croplands: Reducing environmental impacts.
  • Lithium-based feed additives to combat stress.
