Schothorst Feeds and Nutrition course

Netherlands based Schothorst Feed Research is starting a feed and nutrition course in June. When seeking a sabbatical week in the area of Amsterdam this is an excellent opportunity.

The Feeds and Nutrition course is designed to quickly inform participants about the main theoretical and practical aspects of everything involved in feed production.
The course is set up in different modules so that depending on the interest of the participant a custom program can be made.
Annual course
All modules will be offered over the course of one week and the course will be repeated yearly.
In this way participants can take one or several modules in one week/year and eventually additional modules later on.
Learning objective
The objective of the course is to briefly inform participants about theoretical and practical aspects of feed formulating, production and quality control for different species.
With this course Schothorst targets nutritionists, purchasing managers, quality assurance managers, feed mill managers and others involved in the feed or allied industry.
The course will be taught in English. The training is set up in different modules of one or more days over the course of one week. The following modules will be offered:
Module 1 - Feedstuffs: Origin, nutritional characteristics and quality (2 days)
Module 2 - Quality control, manufacturing and handling of feedstuffs (1 day)
Module 3 - Feed processing and manufacturing (1 day)
Module 4 - Least cost formulating (1 day)
Module 5 - Dairy nutrition (2 days)
Module 6 - Swine nutrition (2 days)
