In vivo assessment of feed supplements in production animals (dairy cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry)

The Animal Production group can provide comprehensive in vivo assessment of feeds, supplements or complex diets in multiple species.

The Animal Production team can provide comprehensive information regarding feeds and/or supplements in production animals. Using research facilities, in conjunction with the Dookie farm as required, we can provide in-depth assessments of feeds including information such as:

  • Individual or group animal intake
  • Growth rates and efficiency
  • Milk production and milk quality in dairy cattle
  • Digestibility
  • Biomarkers of efficiency including hormones and metabolites
  • Assessment of tissue deposition (in live animals or meat) using DXA technologies
  • Additional measures available on request.
