     Looking into open pond culture of the aquatic plant spp. of water hyacinth and duckweed for both large livestock like ensilage of hyacinth for beef production, both Australian tender buff and beef, and dairy to spare and pigs and poultry; there is also possible use of duckweed for greens production for these pigs, poultry and other fowl, with production.

    There are issues of safeguarding against zoonoses with proposed washing with salt and base NaOH the fresh fodder before processing to pressed silage/haylage and ''greens''. The latter will require more techniques for oven dehydration and use of possible solar power including smaller farm settings. 

    Products for ''greens'' can be used for export potential if there is availability past piggery and some poultry to future trading countries like Mexico from the Philippines, a probable country for production of both the Philippine variety of hyacinth and imported Australian spp. of duckweed.

A short note to College of Engineering and Agricultural Technology (CEAT) of UPLB (Philippines) Rm 201, Dante B. de Padua Hall, Pili Drive UPLB, College Batong Malake, Los Banos Laguna 4031, on projects in future meant for their engineering and agricultural technologists in their academic, research and extension programs. Here are four (4) for starters: 1) Bioplastics waste recycling from shoreline and waterways, 2) Aquatic fodders for feed processing such as greens, haylage and ensilage of water hyacinth with salt/base and propionic/formic acid, 3) Manufacturing of hi-performance protein-energy milled yeast bagasse supplementation, 4) Heat extrusion pelleting of protein concentrate and whole grain feeds with an inside bore and outer rind layers to optimize protein accessibility and support in the stomachs of beef and cow animals. More to come where this came from at ''SkyeBlue''!

It is guessed that in the N. Eastern sector of the country usually sugar milling activity producing tonnage per season of sugar production would have to burn for fuel the bagasse (pith and rind) which can with derinding and after pressing the sugar-rich juice can be communited and processed to nutritious feedstock or biomass and packaged in a dry form in cubes for transport nationally, and even internationally I would expect. Now for the "Yeast Bagasse" Process. And the product is cf. to as "Yeast Bagasse" using the definable process called solid-substrate fermentation (SSF) referring to a definitive state the particular bound yeast are with having a extremely low water activity (Aw) existing as a thin film on the particulate surface wherein the yeast grow and divide out to supplement the partially digested  Ensiled herbage and SSF residual fibrous feedstocks are now unified as one process theory using the ff. conditional elements for growth of the characteristic microbiome, in this case, ensilage being favourable to the lactic acid bacteria and not clostridial spp. and yeast spp. (e. g. Saccharomyces cerevisiae) : Aw, acid-base balance, isotonic pressure or electrolytes, nutrients such as WSCHO and sucrose.  The ff. stages in the "Yeast Bagasse" process are: I) Particulate Size communition, a factor for oxygenation (O2) and homogeneity limit of mixing, moisture film formation from the flocculated via auger to a large bulk conical mixer which empties at bottom to a moving bunker hod for incubation after a time cycle for the yeast culture; II) There is the matter of sterilizing the biomass first before adding the buffered inoculum or LYC in an open air rather than strictly anaerobic atmosphere S. cerevisiae being facultatively anaerobic; and finally III) The Modification of the "Yeast Bagasse" process with what is called extra-fibrolytic enzymes (EFE) to boost further: a) N. V., b) energy availability and what is referred to as a multiplier factor on N. V. called animal Intake or Appetite. By hod and stage the first process will entail enzymic pretreatment with auger/bulk mixer as the first stage ff. by the second process entailing "deep" yeast incubation with the second stage auger/bulk mixer once it has achieved MCP stasis at an optimum level after rate of addition to OM or biomass weight.

The 'Proteinergic' Theory for Protein Nutrition in the Rumen Stomach.   

     To our watchers in animal nutrition we are presenting here our surmise of how feeding strategy for formulation should be conceived of in principle for protein from the rumen stomach of ungulates (for e. g., like ruminant livestock).

     Our "Flores theory" states that: 1) controlling protein accessibility through the rumen and 2) providing adequate support to rumen microbial cell protein (MCP) biomass synthesis is the key to optimizing the output from the rumen stomach for protein supplied in ruminant digestion and for their metabolism & physiology.

     A Spin-off to the "theory":  We are expanding on peptide technology (e. g. cardionemic vegan and meat such as with beets and tuna Bonita) to use of "proteinogenic" peptides, for microbial cell protein (MCP) synthesis, through enzymatic treatment and feed delivery through slow-release "encapsulization" using protein-carbohydrates supplements with extrusion in the feed supplement pelleting process. Simple but effective.

    Our take on the theory's empirical approach to proving and arriving at a solution in ruminant feeding is to: 1) construct an outer layer or core (OC) with a residing inner luminal core (ILC) using enzyme proteolysis on selected fishmeals (and perhaps other animal meals) to generate ''proteinergic'' peptides and 2) on the otherhand use for the ILC escape protein of low solubility but of concentrate class digestibility like soybean meal, bloodmeal, meat meal, treated by crosslinking or untreated, depending on protein solubility, a major principle or factor determined with protein concentrate supplements.

Greetings to the owner/principal's volunteer centre at the Hydecreek Watershed Society Education Center and Hatchery in the northside of Port Coquitlam, British Columbia Canada V3B 1G3 and our recent conversation between himself and the well-spoke president, Dr. Terry, has opined his suggestion that zoonoses, specifically the infectivity of the Piscine ortho rheovirus (PRV) has been detected from abbatoire muscle and fat tissue wastes for salmon to open sea wild salmon and also just as important open sea fisheries salmon affecting such functions as muscle including the heart muscle, kidneys and liver. 

We inquired on a new idea of ours that certain animal sourced meals including fishmeal might be a source of contaminated tissues (there is meat, blood, bone, fish and feather, as e. g. s.) especially fishmeals from salmon itself.  

We would like to thus propose that our own idea of manufacturing yeast based meals can be a substitute for better health and safety depending on the substrates used including fibre and other more soluble carbohydrates and media sources of nutrients for microbial cell protein (MCP) synthesis as a protein meal source for salmon.

In future, it is predicted that "designer" feed sources enhanced for certain neuro-endocrinological nutritional functional amino acids like HIS, ARG, LEU, MET, AND LYS are to be for boosting growth and development via protein nutrition deployed via biologics like PNA-B12 in effect launching metabolically manipulated organisms and yet are non-GMO or requiring no regulatory control termed here also genetically regulatory organisms (GRO).

The author here states that there is a need for a concerted effort to address the virus infectivity problem using hi-tech techniques to help diagnose and intervene with effective measures.

Give us your valuable feedback soon so we can move forward with salmon fisheries and current issues or problem facing its continuing viability in B. C. in Canada on our Westcoast.

Dear Dr. Peter J. Matthews (of the Research Coop Org., Kyoto Japan/ Auckland N. Z.)

Just read in the Vancouver Province newspaper about protecting wild salmon stocks in and around Discovery Island on the inside passage of Vancouver Island by closing down 15 open net or open sea salmon fisheries contaminated with PRV virus and parasitic sea lice. They asked the question of other ways out (viz. the DFO and PSF or Dept. of Fisheries and the Pacific Salmon Foundation in British Columbia) using hi-tech tools or methods to help solve the problem affecting salmon health and welfare and endangerment of the consumer over infected salmon fish stocks. We suggest here the ff. recommendations from Skye Blue: diagnostics to detect via rt-PCR, anti-virals as chemical agents or immuno-enhancers, stress management to less intensive farming practices including density, banning contaminating abbatoires to open sea by fisheries/hatcheries and designed feeding regimes to help eradicate the contagion amongst salmon stocks including what is suspected as zoonotic animal-based meals like fishmeals itself amongst others. It should be stated that the problem of infestation with diminishing wild salmon fish stocks is also aggravated by global warming and habitat decimation.

Dear: Dr. Peter Matthews (Research Co-op),

We have wondered recently about the involvement of neo-kestose which has been mentioned to be an elaborate oligosaccharide amongst other forms of fructans to be quite tantalizingly to be structurally and with statistical probability to be more specific a ligand to a or the so-called target receptor and as a phytobiotic (viz. there are also probiotics, including prebiotics, synbiotics (both filling the role of prebiotic and probiotic), enzymes (viz. affecting dietary availability), organic acids (for e. g. acidifier butyric acid improving healthier microbiota in the hindgut)) (there are also phytobiotics called cardionemics and certain antioxidants) is of interest to researchers for its so-called mechanism of action metabolically in the body as a nutraceutical.  Nutraceuticals are known for their effects on growth and development, immunity and the immune system including dampening chronic inflammation, and contributing to animal welfare (stress, cardiovascular function).

Fructans, it has been mentioned at ''SkyeBlue'', are probable agents to the small intestine (S.I.) segmented area of the jejunum, using chickens as an animal model; and this is currently also of interest to other researchers in their field.

Peter (Prof. Matthews) we believe there is great news for researchers pursuing this line of research work as it could be the first breakthrough in proving the effect of both complex carbohydrates and their more soluble sugars in the digestive process and the so-called metabolic effects on cardiovascular health and other chronic diseases: Alzheimers, MS, osteoporosis, diabetes type-2, cardiovascular disease including atherosclerosis, and certain Cancers such as melanoma, breast cancer and cancer of the colon.

Thanking you for hearing us out on this and for your comments.

Dear DAF,

Last month I could visit one of the "Globally Important Agricultural Heritage System"  (GIAHS) sites in NE Kyushu, Japan (Kunisaki GIAHS site). We met shitake mushroom farmers who plant and grow oaks using a coppice system, to produce logs on which the shitake mushrooms are raised. The mushrooms can be eaten fresh (after cooking), but most are dried, and the drying machines mainly run on kerosene. Not all parts of the present system are integrated as part of a local production cycle. Kerosene is often used in rural Japan, and could be one of the forest products of Japan. I should find out more about this.

Thanks for posting, and best wishes for the New Year!

Peter (Research Co-op)
