Quality feed helps producers raise healthy livestock and poultry that offer quality protein — filling a vital role in the global food chain.
From the feed mill to the farm, every person involved in livestock and poultry production has a role to play in providing the nutrients, minerals and supplements that animals need to grow, reproduce and perform. To be successful, you must protect feed, feed ingredients and water from the risk of mold and mycotoxins, oxidation and pathogens that can decrease their nutritional value and open the door to health issues.
It's a balance that must be carefully maintained — and an agriculture testing lab can help. Here are four reasons you should be testing your feed ingredients and water to get the most out of your nutrition program.
