# The way to determine the quality of canned feed

(57) Abstract:

The invention relates to agriculture and can be used to determine the quality of canned feed for dogs and cats. The technical result is the reduction of time on the selection of samples, analysis of their standard methods and the development of a single calibration equations for analysis of canned food, intended for dogs and cats, at the same time on all quality indicators. To do this, take samples of canned feed for dogs and cats of different countries producers, prepared from the total sample average, dry to air-dried, crushed, removed from each sample spectra of diffuse reflection in the IR analyzer and simultaneously analyze their standard chemical methods for nitrogen with subsequent conversion to crude protein content crude fiber, crude fat, crude ash, calcium, phosphorus and hygroscopic moisture. Enter to the spectrum of each sample data on the content of each of these quality indicators, expect a single calibration equation the fractional method of least squares using the second derivative and determine the optimum is e relates to agriculture, in particular for the feeding of non-productive animals, and can be used to determine the quality of canned feed for dogs and cats on canning and feed mills, meat processing plants, nurseries, laboratories, veterinary and agrochemical service, and so on, at any stage of their preparation, storage and feeding.Currently, the economy of developed countries, widespread normalized feeding unproductive animals, such as dogs and cats. Developed and used various recipes canned feed for dogs and cats of all ages, breeds and assignments. This part of canned feed impose a variety of foods: poultry, cattle, rabbit, by-products of animal origin, ocean and river fish, cereals, vegetables, vitamin and mineral supplements, etc.All foods are usually high cost.The quality control of the actual chemical composition and nutritional value of canned feed for dogs and cats is of great importance in the preparation, storage and rational feeding them.Was it obuslovlen.There is a method of determining the quality of dry food, particularly animal feed, standard methods involving wet ashing of sample sample acid in the determination of nitrogen, dry ashing at the definition of "crude ash, calcium and phosphorus, the sample extraction samples ether in the definition of "raw" fat, etc. This method is time-consuming to perform, on the analysis of each sample for full zootechnical diagram spend 2 - 3 days, this requires the use of chemical reagents. In addition, this method is not safe for performers (1).The closest (prototype) is a method of determining the quality of dry feed, for example, feed for farm animals by the method of diffuse reflectance samples in the near infrared spectral region (750 to 2500 nm) using IR-ayliation. The method includes sample preparation, removal of the spectrum and calculate the content of chemical composition on previously developed calibration equation.At the same time can be defined a number of indicators for which standardized feeding: the content of crude protein, crude fiber, crude fat, crude ash, calcium, phosphorus, salt, moisture, etc. the analysis of glits the large amount of work on the selection of samples feed preparing them for the analyses of standard chemical methods.Thus, in the development of calibration equations to determine the quality of animal feed intended for farmed animals such as pigs, were selected and analyzed more than 450 samples from different regions of the country with regard to breeds of pigs, age groups, feeding norms and composition of feed depending on the ratio of ingredients. In this work it was spent around 1 year.Preparation of control samples to verify the obtained calibration equations took about 3 months.Theory and practice found that the development of calibration equations in the analysis of feed by method of the near infrared spectroscopy is conducted by each species of farm animals and poultry separately, and this work requires a lot of time on the sampling, preparation and analysis analysis of standard chemical methods (3).The purpose of the invention is to reduce the time for selection of samples, analysis by standard methods and the development of a single calibration equations for analysis of canned food, intended for dogs and cats,tion, however, the analysis of canned feed for different animal species such as dogs and cats, carried out on a single calibration equations, and the preparation of samples of canned feed to the analysis by the method of IR-spectroscopy is carried out by drying them to air-dried and then crushed and propusknom through a sieve with the hole diameter 1 mmThis goal is achieved by taking samples of canned feed for dogs and cats, take the average sample, dried, ground in a mill and passed through a sieve with cell diameter of 1 mm, placed in a cuvette and take spectra in the IR analyzer. Enter the data of chemical analysis for each indicator and expect a single calibration equation the fractional method of least squares. Then remove the IR spectrum analyzed (control) sample and a single calibration equations analyze it on the main indicators of the quality of the feed, regardless of who is the feed - dogs or cats.A distinctive feature of the proposed method is that the determination of optical wavelengths when receiving a single calibration equations by the method of svodnik spectrum instead of direct values of optical density, allows high accuracy to analyze canned food for dogs and cats on the content of the basic quality indicators.The sampling and analysis of canned feed for dogs and cats at a single calibration equations spend time in 5-4 times less than in the development of calibration equations for each animal separately.The accuracy of the results of the analysis of canned feed for dogs and cats by the method of IR-spectroscopy on single calibration equations is not lower than the calibration equations for each animal separately.The method is as follows.Example 1.
