Animal Feed Testing

Farmer Feeding Sheep

Testing animal feeds allows you to evaluate the feeds and ensure profitable, well-balanced rations which in turn help to avoid nutritional disorders.

We provide full proximate and a comprehensive analysis for concentrates and compound feeds with predictions of energy values. We offer testing on feeds for a wide range of animals including pigs, horses, poultry, sheep and cattle.
