Abstract:
    Lignin involves in milk, meat Production, but it is not digested properly in ruminants. Rhodococcus jostii a soil bacterium shows lignin degradation activity to enhance milk, meat production.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    • High milk production • High yield of meat production • Cellulose will digested effectively by cellulase • Production of high energy sugar moieties
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Dairy industry, Meat industry and Agricultural Farm animals will show better production of milk and meat. This will help to fulfill the challenges of food shortage. Large numbers of human population will get benefit from this idea.
How will the solution works
    First we will took liquor from ruman of fistulae animal (Cow) and will perform test in vitro to confirm the action of bacteria in lignin degradation. After confirmation we will mix the bacteria in the feed of the ruminants. DyP type peroxidase (bacterial enzyme) produced by Rhodococcus jostii represent a newly discovered family of heme-containing peroxidases, which has recently received attention due their ability to degrade lignin and other compounds.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Animal feed companies are major competitors. Our strategy or experiment design is simple and cost effective.
