Matters needing attention in the production and use of feed additives
The following problems exist:
1. Abuse of antibiotics and hormones in feed additives In the production of early feed additives, some people used low-dose antibiotics or sulfonamides to prevent diseases or diarrhea in livestock and poultry. This low-dose antibiotic will destroy the ecological balance between microorganisms (including pathogenic microorganisms) in the natural environment, and residues in food will seriously affect human disease treatment and human genetics.
2. The dosage of some trace elements is too much or insufficient. The commonly used trace elements in feed additives are iron, copper, manganese, zinc, iodine, selenium, etc. These elements enter the human body as ions, molecules or compounds with complex structures The state exists, and the biochemical effects of different states are also different. Too little can create a deficiency, and too much can cause poisoning or an imbalance. Therefore, the content must be appropriate and mixed evenly, otherwise it will have the opposite effect.
3. The role of feed additives is exaggerated. The effect of feed additives on balancing the ration and promoting the production and growth of livestock and poultry is affirmative. Generally, it can increase the yield by 5%-25% compared with the control group without additives. However, when some products are advertised, their role is exaggerated, and these unrealistic propaganda should be vigilant.
