Biotechnologies have donated enormously to increasing the level of livestock productivity, particularly in developed countries, and can help to alleviate poverty and hunger, increase the availability of feed resources and ensure environmental sustainability in developing countries. It improves availability of feed throughout the year in both quantity and quality by treating locally available feed resources with biotechnology by product feed additives , improving rumen fermentation of fibrous feed crop residues and enhancing the nutritive value, utilization of agro-industrial by-products and other forages.

Abstract: Application of recent advancements of biotechnology in recent years allowed the use of non-toxic fungi to improve fibrous feeds like straw or poor quality roughages. In particular, the white rot fungi have been used because of their ability to digest in to usable product of the plant material. In addition, wide variety of feed additives, many of biotechnological origin are known to modify rumen fermentation in ruminant animals. They include components that can reduce methanogenesis, enhance propionic acid production, reduce protein degradation, improve microbial protein synthesis and inhibit protozoa.

The main aims of the COST Action Feed for Health FA were: to develop an integrated and collaborative network of research groups that focuses on the roles of feed and animal nutrition in improving animal wellbeing and also the quality, safety and wholesomeness of human foods of animal origin; to examine the consumer concerns and perceptions as regards livestock production systems. Finally, the present paper has the scope to provide new ideas and solutions to a range of issues associated with the modern livestock production system. Clearly, ensuring such high outputs of these traded products conforming to adequate quality standards is a major undertaking and it is fair to say that the EU has made significant progress in defining standards and promoting legislation in this area. However nowadays both feeds and foods must be considered not only in terms of their nutritional properties but also in terms of their ability to promote wellbeing and protect against chronic disease. Consequently, the role of animal nutrition in designing foods closer to the optimal composition for long-term human wellbeing is becoming increasingly important Givens et al. Starting from these assumptions an integrated, multidisciplinary, and collaborative network a COST Action has been set up.
BIOTECHNOLOGY IN ANIMAL FEED & FEEDING
Biotechnological tools to maximize production efficiency and animal health and to reducing nutrient excretion support the strive towards these goals. The use of enzymes increases nutrition utilization and thus can broaden the range of feed ingredients that can efficiently be used in nutrition. Probiotics and yeast products have been shown to stabilize the gut ecosystem and to optimizing intestinal function and health. Yeast products have also been shown to support immune function. Organic minerals being in a form of high bioavailability offer an effective strategy for improving the efficiency of feeding trace minerals and for reducing environmental burden. In the future, algae could play a major role as novel protein sources, as a tool to provide long chain essential fatty acids or other nutrients in highly available forms into the feed and food chain.
