Animax, it outlined, consists of hydrated sodium calcium aluminosilicate (HSCAS) with 74 totally different uncommon earth parts (REE). As a complement, the product is “designed to spice up diet, well being, and immunity of animals by way of its effectiveness” as a mycotoxin binder, with its objective of lowering the dangerous results of feed-related varieties of mycotoxins, primarily Aflatoxin B1.
The additive, stated the producer, binds to different mycotoxins resembling deoxynivalenol, ergotamine, fumonisin B1, ochratoxin A, T-2 toxin, and zearalenone, however to a lesser diploma. Its binding performance was examined by a third-party analytical agency, the Triology Laboratory in Germany, stated Mark Wareing, MD, Manaseer UK Ltd.

That is the primary feed product that Manaseer, one in all Jordan’s largest manufacturing and enterprise teams, has produced itself as an organization.
“We have now a division – Manaseer Buying and selling – which has been concerned within the import and sale of a number of merchandise for the animal feed business for a few years. It has imported and provided such merchandise into Jordan, the broader Center East, and Jap Europe,” stated Wareing.
The group, he continued, determined to show to the minerals it mines and processes to find out if they’d utility potential inside agricultural sectors.
“The Manaseer Group has been investing within the manufacturing of supplies for a wide range of business functions since 1999 and it has a state-of-the-art analysis heart with an R&D division staffed with internationally skilled scientists from a spread of disciplines. With information of the chemical constituents of one of many key minerals we mine and course of, at hand, we checked out its utility in agriculture, horticulture, hydroponics, and aquaculture owing to the home economic system being very eager to enhance agricultural yields.
“The supplies have been examined in varied animal species and with a spread of crops, each in-house and utilizing the companies of third-party analysis facilities. These outcomes confirmed that the fabric was efficient in stimulating development in vegetation when utilized both within the soil, or through foliar spray, and in addition that it produced greater development charges, finish weights, well being and yields in animals when it was added to their feed.
“These preliminary outcomes inspired us to proceed creating and testing the fabric in third get together laboratories,” Wareing informed FeedNavigator.
The additive, following latest exams at EUROFINS lab in Germany, is demonstrably free from any content material of animal origin with dioxin and PCBs content material values under the utmost limits talked about within the Directive 2002/32/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of seven Might 2002 on undesirable substances in animal feed, stated the corporate.
The feed complement is being launched globally following a collection of in-vivo research. “Distributors might be appointed for these markets the place there’s not a Manaseer operation, supported by technical experience on the group’s HQ,” stated Wareing.
Animax is produced in-house in Jordan. “The ability is absolutely compliant with all rules and run underneath internationally recognised ISO requirements. We’re about to be HACCP licensed and we’re within the means of making use of for GMP+ and FAMI-QS requirements.”
The product might be imported to the UK market, for instance, straight from Jordan, in 25Kg sacks. “Once the volumes enhance we’re taking a look at importing in bulk and packing the fabric within the UK.”
The corporate, added Wareing, has tried to check Animax at as many dosage ranges and in as many varieties of feed formulations as doable as a part of the analysis and commercialization course of. When it comes to dosages necessities for feed supplementation of Animax, they differ relying on animal species.
Third get together discipline trials, he reported, have been carried out at a dairy cattle farm at a dosage price of 50g of Animax/head/day; the findings, he claimed, confirmed a rise in feed consumption (FI), and immunity of the dairy cattle, together with an enchancment of different well being and manufacturing parameters.
A business trial was carried out with Al Rahbeh feed firm to discover the consequences of Animax mineral complement on broiler efficiency. It included a trial at a broiler farm the place 2.5 kg Animax/MT of feed resulted in a rise within the feed digestibility, improved immunity and a rise within the general weight of the hen, by a mean of 8.43%, stated the developer.
The outcomes of a trial at a layer farm, utilizing the identical dosage stage, confirmed an enchancment in intestine well being, digestibility, and immunity of the chickens, a rise in egg manufacturing and an enchancment in eggshell high quality, particularly the shell thickness, stated the agency.
One other discipline trial was carried out at a turkey farm, this time with 3kg of Animax/MT feed getting used; the corporate stated the outcomes confirmed a rise within the coefficient of digestibility, nitrogen utilization charges, and a hike in dwell hen weight by a mean of seven.25% and boosted slaughter weight, by a mean of 5.7%.
Third-party discipline trials evaluating the additive in swine and beef cattle and in addition in aquaculture manufacturing are at the moment underway, stated Wareing.
