A perfect hygienic state is a basic requirement for the provision of marketable compound feed.
This can be achieved by a combination of organisational and technological measures, including the use of appropriate effective additives.
The growing pressure on livestock farms (such as the zoonosis regulation) also forces manufacturers of compound feed more than ever to provide reliable proof for the effectiveness of the implemented hygienic measures.
Plant operators can choose from an array of new developments and enhancements of systems and products. In addition to their degree of innovation the efficiency of the measure will have to be judged. To what extent can a safe but also an economic and flexible compound feed production be established?
During the workshop, the current state of scientific knowledge and practical experience will be discussed. Also hygienic hazards and risks as well as the possibilities of their prevention and control are to be submitted for discussion.
The presented topics aim to recommend economically viable strategies for the production of safe compound feed and for feeding.
