Recent advances in utilization of oil palm by-products as animal feed

  title={Recent advances in utilization of oil palm by-products as animal feed},
  author={A. Alimon and W. Z. Mohamed},
The rapid expansion of oil palm plantation and production in countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Nigeria results in large quantities of biomass by-products being produced. These by-products are mostly fibrous in nature although palm kernel meal can be considered a co-product that is valuable as animal feed. With the increase in feed prices and increased use of corn for ethanol production it is imperative that animal feed has to rely on feed materials not utilize by humans. This… Expand

An overview of the oil palm industry in Malaysia and its waste utilization through thermochemical conversion, specifically via liquefaction
Malaysia is among the top most important palm oil producers in the world. The country is experiencing a robust development in new oil palm plantations and palm oil mills. This commodity plays aExpand
Development of Animal Feed from Waste to Wealth using Napier Grass and Palm Acid Oil (PAO) from Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME)
This study is to investigate the effectiveness of feeding cattle with a mixture of palm acid oil (PAO) from palm oil mill effluent (POME), water lettuce, coconut waste and Napier grass. TheseExpand
Solid-state fermentation of co-products from palm oil processing: Production of lipase and xylanase and effects on chemical composition
Abstract The palm oil industry generates large amounts of lignocellulosic co-products. Palm kernel cake (PKC) and palm pressed fibre (PPF) have nutritional limitations as ingredients in animal feed,Expand
Crude palm oil (CPO) and the main co-products of palm oil milling, namely palm kernel cake (PKC) and palm oil mill effluent (POME) have considerable potential nutritive value for laying hens. ThisExpand
The domesticated buffalo in Malaysia is represented mostly by the swamp type, and the availability of grasses, legumes, shrubs and tree fodders under the plantation environment offer tremendous opportunities as feed resources for these animals. Expand
Effect of feeding less shell, extruded and enzymatically treated palm kernel cake on expression of growth-related genes in broiler chickens
It can be concluded that the shell reduction, enzymatic and extrusion treatment practiced in this study did not change PKC feeding potentials in broiler chickens and their growth performance and expression of genes related to growth trait studied. Expand

Physicochemical Properties of Pineapple Plant Waste Fibers from the Leaves and Stems of Different Varieties
Pineapple agro-waste, the residue produced during harvesting or processing activities, is widely available around the world. After harvesting, most pineapple residue is disposed of and serves asExpand


Utilization of oil palm frond - based diets for beef and dairy production in Malaysia.
Good quality OPF silage can be produced without using any additive and the significant improvement on the rate of growth and milk yield were shown and long-term feeding of OPF based feeds have been shown to produce good quality carcasses, and the meat is safe for consumption. Expand
Palm kernel Cake (PKC) utilization in monogastric animal feeding - implications for sustainable livestock development.
The author observed that majority of studies focused on Poultry nutrition and therefore suggested that more studies be carried out on the utilization of PKC on both Poultry and Pig nutrition so as to meet the required demand for animal products. Expand
Researching the Use of Palm Kernel Cake in Aquaculture Feeds
Very little information is currently available on the use of PKC in fish diets, but PKC is an established feed ingredient for ruminants, supplying valuable dietary sources of protein, energy and fibre. Expand
Use of palm kernel cake and oil palm by-products in compound feed.
Compound feed is a mixture of feed ingredients obtained from various sources. A feed ingredient is only a constituent of a compound feed and if used as the sole ration fed, has to be enrichedExpand
The Nutritive Value of Palm Kernel Cake for Animal Feed A
In Malaysia, most of the PKC produced are from expeller extraction. Though solvent extraction is also used in the extraction of palm kernel oil but the process is costly and screw press extractionExpand
Palm kernel meal in broiler diets: effect on chicken performance and health
The results suggested that palm kernel meal has no anti-nutritional properties and thus its inclusion is safe up to at least 40% in the diet, provided the diet is balanced in amino acids and metabolisable energy. Expand
