Schothorst Feed Research: Feeds, nutrition course

For the fourth time Schothorst Feed Research will organise the Feeds and Nutrition course in Amsterdam, from 2-6 June 2014.

This advanced course offers in depth but practical training, focussed on nutrition, quality assurance and feed formulation for dairy, swine and/or poultry. This year extra modules on 'Mycotoxins and Anti Nutritional Factors', 'Risk management in commodity markets' and Interpretation of laboratory test results' are added. Altogether ten different modules will be offered so that each participant can design his or her own custom program depending on interest or specialisation.

This course is designed for nutritionists, purchasing, product and quality assurance managers of feed and feed additive producers and others involved in the feed and allied industry.

Course design
All courses will be taught in one week (2-6 June ), starting with the basic Feedstuffs (origin, nutritional characteristics and quality) and ending in specialised Dairy, Swine or Poultry nutrition. In between the participant can learn more about Mycotoxins, Feed processing or Least Cost Formulating. Specialised companies in the area of feed processing, communication and Least Cost Formulating will provide additional trainers. All modules will be offered over the course of one week. Next year the course will be repeated in case participants want to sign up for courses on conflicting days.

On Saturday an excursion to a farm, feed mill and Schothorst Feed Research will be organised for those interested.

The course will be held at the Regardz Silver Tower Conference center in down town Amsterdam, several hotel options are available.
