|Title:||Current NIR developments in the Premium Grains for Livestock Program|
|Citation:||Grain Industries Centre for NIR, 7th Annual Meeting of Participants, Brisbane, (2002), pp. 40-48|
|Description:||The Premium Grains for Livestock Program (PGLP) represents a coordinated national effort to: (i)understand the factors determining nutritional value of grains for animals; (ii)improve nutritional value through processing, breeding and storage; (iii)develop rapid methods for measuring determinants of grain quality; and (iv)develop computer programs to predict animal performance and economic value of grains. The PGLP, now in its sixth and final year, is funded and managed by GRDC, with contributions from Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA), the Pig, Dairy and Rural Industries Research and Development Corporations (PRDC, DRDC and RIRDC), Ridley Agriproducts Pty Ltd and the various research providers involved. The collaborating research organisations are the University of Sydney, SARDI, the University of New England (UNE), CSIRO, DNRE and NSW Agriculture. Overall coordination of the research is the responsibility of John L Black Consulting. This paper reports on progress within a PGLP component project, entitled “Rapid and Objective Analytical Tests” (DAS 341). This project involves the use of chemical, physical, in vitro and in vivo analyses of grains, relevant to both monogastric and ruminant animals. The NIR technique is an integral part of this research, given that the objective is to develop rapid tests for use at the site of grain collection and/or use. This would allow the test results to be used for pricing grains in accordance with their suitability as an animal feed.|
