Animal Feed Production: Feed Safety

EIT Food and Queen's University Belfast via FutureLearn


Discover key hygiene regulations, feed processing and feed formulation methods

Please note this course runs without facilitation

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.

The course is designed for animal feed mill managers for continuous professional development and training existing and new operators, as well as other personnel (such as administrative and sales staff), food scientists, process engineers, regulators on feed safety practices.

The Educators won’t be able to join the discussions themselves or respond to individual comments, but the course encourages a strong learning community. The learning is focused around debate and discussion – supporting other learners, sharing your own experience and knowledge, and listening to new perspectives. We hope that you will enjoy interacting with and learning from each other in this way. Don’t forget to comment, reply to other learners and ‘like’ comments.
