This course focusses on the concepts of why we use feed processing to add value to feed ingredients for livestock and a discussion of the reality of achieving consistent increase in feed value. Laboratories will include practical applications of why concepts may or may not consistently result in reality – improved feed value. One full day will be scheduled at the Canadian Feed Research Centre to obtain hands-on experience of feed processing using pilot line equipment.
