Organic feed additive developed by Bayburt University for lamb breeding successfully passed the first tests. If all tests are successful, a patent application will be filed.
Test results of three probiotic species developed within the scope of a scientific project realized by Prof. Dr. Vecihi Aksakal, Assoc. Dr. Enes Dertli, Dr. Emre Tekçe and Dr. Bülent Bayraktar from Bayburt University have been found to have a high impact on lamb fattening.
Tests were conducted to measure the effects of three probiotic species developed by Dertli on lamb fattening and it was observed that more weight gain was achieved with less cost. Aksakal made a statement about the project and expressed that they have implemented a completely organic production process.
Explaining that they observe much higher performance than expected in one of the probiotics, Aksakal said that they will continue the test studies of probiotic consisting of organic food mixtures. Aksakal said that they predicted that the process would continue successfully and that they would apply for patents in case of success in all tests.
Rector Coşkun, who examined the works within the scope of the project, visited the production facility and got information from the project team and Bayram Ünsür, Chairman of Baytaş Organik Koyunculuk A.Ş. which provided technical support. Stating that they are closely following the project which is expected to break ground in domestic animal husbandry, Coşkun said that as a university, they attach great importance to public-university-industry cooperation and they are working to provide added value to their region.
