Lab services for your operation

Feed Quality Icon - CLS
Feed quality

Effective mold and mycotoxin management starts with knowing what is in your feed. Mold growth in storage can dramatically reduce the quality and nutritional value of grains and finished feed. Mycotoxins are unavoidable and can cause significant production loss, even before you see symptoms. To help manage ingredient quality and reduce negative health impacts, our team can analyze feed and feed ingredients for the presence of molds and mycotoxins.


Feed Safety Icon - CLS
Feed safety

Controlling in-feed pathogens, like Salmonella, is the key to an on-farm biosecurity. To help keep pathogens at bay, we offer a variety of services to help you test for and address profit-robbing pathogen challenges in feed and feed ingredients. We test to support pathogen control products by analyzing feed for Salmonella and verifying product application rates.

Oxidation control

Oxidation is a major cause of decreased fat quality. To manage oxidation, it's critical to start with a high-quality fat. Oxidation is an irreversible process, so it is important to know both the current state of and potential for future oxidation, and to understand that other feed ingredients can be a potential source of oxidation in feed. We test fat, oil, feed ingredients or finished feed to help identify and address oxidation challenges.

Pigmentation testing

Egg color, appearance and consistency are key to the marketability of poultry products. For more than 20 years, Kemin has been providing high-quality and safe carotenoid products to the poultry industry using the right product inclusion rate to achieve their value-added pigmentation goals. Our team can work with you to test your eggs and feed to ensure you are using the right product inclusion rate for your goals.

Water quality and composition can have a major impact on the performance of your herd or flock. CLS can test water or swab samples for the presence of biofilms. We use these results to recommend a water sanitation program.
