Bedding production optimized – significant reduction of fine fractions
Reported on 16. Sep. 2010
In early August the counter-air sieve of bedding production was modified. The first analysis and customer feedbacks are available:
Through the improved wind screening the proportion of very fine (<0.2 mm) and fine fractions (0.2 to 0.8 mm) is partially reduced by up to 90%; the characteristic calibration of product (eg, Grade 6 : 1.25 to 1.6 mm) increased at the same time.
The analytical findings were confirmed by the first positive feedbacks from customers..
Price stability by the end of 2010 guaranteed
Reported on 16. Aug. 2010
The price of wheat at the commodity exchanges marked achieved new heights. Over the past two months the price increased by 50%. Background is a Russian ban on exports and poor harvests in Canada.
The LASvendi® rodent diets in large part are made from cereals (wheat, corn, barley, oats). Through long-term commodity contracts part of the extreme price increases is absorbed. In addition there is a short-term compensation by the positive business development.
Through this we guarantee price stability by end of 2010.

Microbiological status after 5 months of storage excellent
Reported on 28. June 2010
At a regular process and product validation, the product Rod16-H (rodent food, pasteurized for breeding and maintenance) was tested. The batch was manufactured in early February and analysed after 5 months of storage on microbiological status.
The germ status of E-coli, yeasts and moulds was below the detection limit (<1.0 x 10E2); Salmonella were also not detected. The total aerobic germs (3.0 x10E2) were only slightly above the detection limit. According to GV-SOLAS guidelines a value 5x10E5 would be permitted.
Convincing results of modern technology!
Microbiological findings of pasteurized diets under detection limit
Reported on 24. June 2010
With the special heat treatment (HYSYS Pasteurization at 95°C for 2 min) an excellent pasteurization is achieved which kills pathogens efficiently. In addition, pre-treated raw materials are used for the optimization of autoclave usability and improvement of pellet quality.
This action is likely to push the germ counts of total aerobic, E-coli, yeast, mold and salmonella below the detection limit.
More quality at lower cost!
