Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The fourth series of reports by the Scientific Committee for Animal Nutrition comprises opinions expressed by the Committee over the period 8 July 1981 to 1 June 1983 on the use of certain additives in feeding stuffs for poultry, pigs, cattle and rabbits. Most of these products, which are intended for promoting growth or preventing coccidiosis or histomoniasis, have either been authorized temporarily for use by Community legislation or the subject of an application for extension of use. Three products new for animal nutrition + one organic copper compound and two polyether compounds obtained from Streptomyces cultures + complete this series. The rigorous assessments made by the Committee, particularly on metabolism, residues, microbiological and toxicological effects have clarified the optimum conditions of use of these additives and eliminated uncertainty about the safe use of a number of them. They have thus made an appreciable contribution to recent Community measures in the field of animal nutrition.
