Overview

Discover key hygiene regulations, feed processing and feed formulation methods

Producing animal feed safely will ensure your animal production system remains healthy. Well-fed animals not only live longer but are healthier and more productive in quality and quantity, which means larger farming profits.

On this course, you’ll discover the control and testing methods used to maximise the safety of animal feed. You’ll explore the safety of different types of animal foodstuffs, including forages, oilseeds and by-products.

You’ll also learn hygiene regulations around the microbiological and chemical aspects of animal feed, as well as feed processing and formulation methods.
