At the forum site, the inaugural ceremony of “Animal Lipid Science” was grandly held, which became a major attraction of the forum. Academician Li Defa, Professor He Dongping, Professor Liu Yulan, Associate Researcher Ma Yongxi, Associate editor Zhou Xiaoyan, Chairman Wang Jihua took the stage to unveil the new book; Sun Xiaoge, Ai Qinghui, Zuo Rantao, Wang Lu, Wu Yi, Liu Yulan, Ma Qiugang, Lai Changhua, Li Fengna, Guo Qiuping, Li Wenjuan and other participants took a group photo on stage.
In the expert report session, Professor He Dongping introduced the import and export status of oil and fats in China last year with the theme of “the Development trend of China’s oil and fats industry”. He said that the oil and oil processing industry shoulders the dual task of ensuring the safety of the national grain and oil food, meeting the material needs of the people’s healthy life and providing a variety of essential industrial raw materials for the society, and is the most important related industry in the livestock industry. He elaborated the new development of oil processing technology in China in recent years from the aspects of new oil source development, accurate and moderate processing technology and equipment, food special oil processing technology, functional oil preparation technology, comprehensive utilization of oil and oil, edible oil safety control technology, intelligent and digital technology, enzyme technology, green oil storage technology, and oil application in animal husbandry industry. He said that the oil industry is closely related to human nutrition and animal nutrition, and “stable supply, improving quality and health standards” are the common concerns of the two industries.
With the theme “Application of Lipid in Laying Hens”, President Ma Baishun shared the applied research and experimental data of fatty acid balance in laying hens, the development of nutrient-rich egg production technology, and the future planning and prospect of Hejia Lipid Research Center. He pointed out that Hejia Lipid Research Center will focus on the evaluation of the nutritional and functional application value of lipids in livestock and poultry farming in the future. Theoretical research on lipid industry development was carried out to provide information support for the industry, focusing on lipid application and functional lipid enrichment evaluation system and standard formulation (revision), application and promotion of balanced lipid, popularization of functional lipid enrichment egg science knowledge, healthy culture of functional lipid and precision nutrition and feeding technology.
With the theme of “Development of Fatty acid Balanced Milk“, Dr. Cao Yu introduced the contradiction between the high cost of livestock and poultry breeding and the rising consumption, and put forward the solution of fatty acid balance. He pointed out that through the balance of fatty acids, nutrition absorption can be promoted and fat efficiency can be improved, and on this basis, the integration of milk fat technology can further enhance the potency of fat. This is how Lidopro ® Balanced Milk was born, which can replace soybean oil 1:1 and achieve 1.1 times the substitution effect.
With the theme of “Research on the Application of Fatty acid Balance in Sow Production“, Professor Liu Yulan introduced the problem of low fertility of sows, the basic function of fats, the effect of fats on sow reproductive performance and piglet production performance, the application research of fats in sow production, the effect of fatty acid balance on animal production, and the development of balanced fat products for sows. She pointed out that different fatty acids have different effects on sow reproductive performance, milk composition and intestinal growth and development of piglets, and reasonable mixing of various fatty acids can not only effectively save raw materials, but also make up for the deficiency of single fatty acids.
With the theme of “Research on the Application of Fatty acid Balanced Milk in livestock and Poultry“, Professor Shi Jianjiang introduced the research motivation, theoretical basis, experimental research, product efficacy and use methods of fatty acid balanced milk products. He pointed out that under the premise of the national “low protein diet” strategy and the high use of fats in diets, the team developed a new product – “fatty acid balance Milk – Lidopro ®” on the basis of the theory of fatty acid balance through the innovation of the oil homogenization and emulsification processing technology, and the results of 4 tests showed that: Lidopro ® Balanced milk can improve the milk production performance of sows by promoting nutrient absorption and improving the health of sows, thus improving the growth, development and survival of piglets.
Adhering to the great vision of promoting the quality and efficiency of the feed industry, transformation and upgrading, and leading the development of lipid nutrition, CALID Lipid Nutrition Forum has been successfully held for three consecutive sessions since 2021, attracting more and more attention, and this forum is full of friends and has become an influential industry event in the field of fatty acids.
