Course Description

Learn about animal feed production, quality assurance, and regulation

Please note this course runs without facilitation

The quality of animal feed is important to ensure animal production systems are healthy. A good livestock diet can boost profitability on farms, as well-fed animals are healthier, more productive, and less likely to incur costly vet bills.

On this course, you’ll learn control systems and testing methods used to maximise animal feed quality. You’ll discover different types of animal feed production, explore issues which affect the quality of feed, and learn the regulatory requirements.

This course will help you to become a responsible feed producer and stakeholder in the animal feed sector.
