Developments have also increased our knowledge of the potential nutritional value of feeds and feedstuffs with regard to components from feeds which are used for the synthesis of body components and for the support of metabolic processes in the body. Moreover, there have been several recent technical innovations. Included among them are novel advances such as the development of new in vitro digestibility assays, new bio-available lysine assays and computerized growth models for determining dietary nutrient requirements.

All of these can contribute considerably to the accurate formulation of mixed diets for simple-stomached animals. Effective feed formulators need to be up to date with these and other technologies, and a primary aim of this seminar is to provide an opportunity for such an update.

In this seminar, you will gain recent knowledge about the subjects mentioned above. The objective of the seminar is to provide a concise update on the principles of feed evaluation as applied to the livestock industries.
