¿Cuál es la importancia de los sabores de los piensos en los animales lecheros?

Feed flavoring agent, also known as feed attractant or feed flavor agent, is based on the nutritional physiological characteristics and eating habits of different animals at different growth stages, in order to improve feed palatability and attractant, increase animal feed intake, and increase A flavor additive added to the feed quality. In recent years, with the rapid development of China’s feed industry, flavoring agents as a feed additive, its research and application more and more widely.

1.More attractive effect, increase feed intake
Animals, like humans, have sensory requirements for the color, smell and taste of food. Zoologists have shown that many animal olfactory nerve buds occupy a greater proportion of the brain, and their sense of smell and taste are usually more sensitive than humans. Studies have shown that the number of people’s taste buds is 9000 units, and pigs and rabbits are 15,000 units. The feed flavoring agent actually uses the “sweetness” to stimulate the olfactory organs, and then the brain issues instructions to promote the secretion of digestive juices and gastrointestinal motility, thereby generating appetite. , start eating behavior.

2.Cover up undesirable smell in feed and improve palatability
Nowadays, the quality of feed products is increasingly valued by people. The comprehensiveness and balance of feed nutrient components have become an important factor for users to consider. The application of some unconventional feed resources and some industrial synthetic raw materials such as vitamins, inorganic salts, and drugs in feeds has affected the palatability of feeds. Adding a flavoring agent to the feed, its aroma can mask the bad odor, thus improving the palatability of the feed.

3.Resistance to stress caused by refueling, high temperature, disease, etc.
The stress response refers to the defense response exhibited by the animal in its own or mental stimulation (eg, noise, environmental mutations, etc.). Animals, especially young animals, have a stress response due to changes in feeding conditions, such as weaning, frightening, and transportation, resulting in reduced feed intake and decreased body resistance. Practice has shown that the growth and health status of piglets from weaning to 11-week-old pigs is a critical period for hog production, and there is a great relationship between the subsequent weight gain and the quality after slaughter. However, weaned piglets are vulnerable to stress reactions, making them vulnerable to stress. The first week of slow growth, easy to disease, such as diarrhea, resulting in increased mortality. Adding a person’s fragrance to the feed during the later gestation period of the sow makes the newborn piglet adapt to this odor when absorbing breast milk. Because the piglet is accustomed to this scent, it can quickly adapt to the solid feed at weaning, feed early, and resist various stress responses. The ability to improve, to ensure piglet production performance and survival rate.

4.Make feed more merchandise and improve quality
The quality of feed depends mainly on the three factors of nutrition level, feed intake and digestion and absorption. Balanced feed, large feed intake, and good digestion and absorption of feed are good quality feeds. The addition of flavoring agents to the feed can not only increase the feed intake and digestion and absorption rate, but also make the feed full of aromas, improve the quality grade, and is conducive to product promotion, which can bring economic benefits to manufacturers and users. Flavoring agents can also improve the environmental odor of feed factories and feedlots, make the surrounding environment full of pleasant scent, and contribute to the health of humans and animals.
